Ever since it first arrived on the home furnishing scene in the 1950s, the modular sofa has been an ideal choice for anyone looking to bring a more flexible design style to their room layout. In fact, some of the most timeless living room layouts often include these effortlessly functional and comfort-first pieces. With multiple section options that can be easily configured to suit the specific size and needs of your space, a modular sofa can be an excellent addition to any room in your home, as well as a versatile way to change up your design whenever you feel inspired to do so. Whether it’s opening up a room to allow for a more airy flow with an L-shaped sofa against the wall, or bringing the family room together with an intimate, curve-shaped focal piece, a modular design can rise to the occasion. Here are two of our favorite sectional sofas from Ethnicraft that are sure to inspire with their endless possibilities.

The Mellow Sectional

If you’re looking for a sofa with expert craftsmanship, comfort, and durability that can also hold its own in any room of your home, the Mellow Sofa is a perfect fit. It has multiple modular pieces that can be reconfigured easily, and a modern design that’s intended to support and enhance your personal style, not overshadow it. With classic lines, rounded corners, and elegant seam detailing, the Mellow offers a refined simplicity that’s meant to follow your lead, even as your home and needs change over the years. Everything about this sofa is made to stand the test of time, from its handmade and sustainable wood structure, to its high quality, Italian upholstery that incorporates recycled cotton and a repellent coating to prevent stains. Made for long lasting comfort and luxury, the Mellow Sectional provides an intentionally clean design that encourages creativity, and invites a more relaxed and enjoyable approach to life.

The N701 Collection

From its secret agent name to its distinctive Mid-century look, the N701 has numerous size, shape, and color options to help elevate the feel of any room. Designer Jacques Deneef set out to create a mono-volume collection that was not only stunning to look at, but also incredibly comfortable to lay back and relax in. With a mixture of foams that evenly fill out this plush cushioning, the effect is both luxurious and supportive to experience. The N701 also offers a variety of different materials to choose from, including a fabric crafted with recycled cotton from the fashion industry, which makes for an even more versatile and environmentally-friendly purchase. We love the sophistication of this sofa’s quilted seating, and the varying shapes and sizes of its modular pieces that make it an easy focal point sofa, or a more subtle seating arrangement, depending on your personal preferences.

There are so many ways a modular sofa can enhance your home’s style, while still serving the specific functional needs of any room. Whether you’re creating a space to promote cozy relaxation, entertaining and conversation, or even a little family play time, these durable and flexible furniture additions offer something for every purpose, and every home. By combining the kind of heirloom quality you can cherish for decades, and numerous configuration options to get creative with your space, the Mellow and N701 sofas epitomize Ethnicraft’s core values of craftsmanship, innovation, and sustainability.
