27 Elegant Living Room Sectionals Perfect for Formal Living Rooms


Looking for sectionals for your living room? Check out these 27 living room sectional sofas perfect for formal and more casual living rooms.

While sectional sofas are wildly popular for casual rooms such as family rooms and entertainment rooms, they’re not as widely used as living room furniture.

This is too bad and in my view, is an oversight.

The key with living room sectionals is choosing the right style and design.  The fact is (and this is the point of this sectional sofa gallery), there are a good number of elegant living room sectional sofas.

What to look for in a sectional sofa for your living room

1.  Exposed wood

Exposed wood on living room furniture adds a touch of class and elegance.  Most sectionals with exposed wood will fit the bill.

2.  Mid-century modern design

If your home embraces a modern design, mid-century modern sectionals will work great.

3.  Avoid recliners

Restrict recliner style sectionals to your more casual rooms.  These are not meant for a living room setting.

4.  Avoid clunky, plush leather sectionals

I love a big, plush leather sectionals; however, they’re not a good fit for living room decor.

While a list of “rules” can be helpful, we’re of the view that pictures of living room sectionals are far more helpful.

Below is a gallery of 31 sectional sofas that are stylish and elegant enough for use as living room furniture.

Why even bother getting a sectional for your living room?

1.  Great for smaller spaces

By this I mean that you can minimize the amount of furniture you need to create a full furniture set if it includes a small sectional sofa.  You can go with only a sectional or add one chair and voila – you have a fully furnished living room.

2.  Provides plenty of seating

Larger sectionals, if you have the space, offer far more comfortable seating than a traditional sofa.

3.  They’re comfortable

Even the more formal sectionals are more comfortable than most sofas, especially the chaise lounge variety.  They’re easier to stretch out on and accommodate taller people.

4.  Your living room doubles as a family room

If you have one living room area that doubles as your family room (or vice versa), a classier sectional (but still comfortable) is a great furnishing option.

5.  They look great

Not all sectionals are designed for man caves.  As you’ll see below, there are many sectional sofas that work well as a more formal sofa option. Please, enjoy our beautiful pictures of living rooms with sectional sofas.
