Rising to prominence in the middle of the 20th Century, the sectional sofa has been an object of desire ever since. Speaking of comfort and luxury, modular seating invites relaxation, conversation, and familiarity.
But did you know that the sectional has been with us long before the sleek lines of Mid-Century Modern furniture captivated us? There is little documentary evidence, save the presence of early examples of the sectional in 19th Century art, but there’s no question they’ve been around for longer than many know.
In prosperous pre-Civil War Virginia, examples were known to exist, traced back to wealthy families who had them commissioned for their expansive living spaces.
Tufted, laminated and resplendent with fine leathers, these early pieces were lost to the chaos and destruction of war. We know of them only through the careful examination of surviving paintings.
While furniture manufacturers have made accommodation to the modern love of home living, adding power recliners and cup holders to some sectionals, the very best of the genre features the familiar lines of Mid-Century Modern design.
The sensibilities and influence of Eames echoes through the sleek sophistication of modern renditions of the sectional.
