Britt is a stargazer and sunrise-chaser with a collection of magic erasers, and a fascination with the fantastic. A storyteller at heart, she finds inspiration in all the small things, and can likely be found singing show tunes, catching up on K-dramas, or going on adventures to satiate her natural-born wanderlust. (Sometimes even all at the same time.)

When it comes to comfy, cozy, chill-out-with-your-best-friends-for-hours seating, nothing beats a good sectional. The perfect pick for movie nights, cuddle sessions, and binging the latest season of your favorite show, sectionals are a choice that many overlook when shopping for new living room seating. And while you might think that sectionals are only for bigger living spaces, you might be surprised to learn there are a ton of modular, compact pieces that are small-space-friendly — as long as you’re okay with doing some research. To help you out, we did the hard work for you and scoured our favorite retailers to find 10 sectionals you can buy right now, across all styles, budgets, and square footage (because nothing should stand between you and your dream sofa). So kick your feet up, relax, and read on.

If you wish furniture shopping could be, say, “easy like Sunday morning,” then direct-to-consumer company Sundays might be the brand for you. The brainchild of four friends and family members looking to further demystify the home furnishing process, Sundays launched in Vancouver, Canada, back in 2019 and has now officially arrived in the United States as of earlier this week.
Offering a fairly tightly-curated assortment of furnishings for living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and outdoors, Sundays caters to a more modern aesthetic, but there’s something decidedly low-key about their assortment and classic about their silhouettes. Wooden pieces come in three finishes ranging from light to dark — white oak, walnut, and black oak — and are meant for mixing together. Upholstered items, including sofas, beds, and chairs, carefully toe the line between pretty and practical with their performance fabrics available in a bevy of neutral shades (largely whites, creams, grays, and tan leather) and, in some cases, removable covers. The beauty of the line is that you have choices but not too many — and that’s by design. Everything works together and has that tailored but still chill, West Coast casual feel to it, making it perfect for anyone who likes a modern look but doesn’t want to go too trendy or wild with color.
I got a chance to check out the line in person earlier this month and was impressed by the quality of the pieces. The modular Movie Night Sectional, a best-seller and shown above, looked like the kind of sofa you could really sink into — cushy while still tailored — and the fact that its cushion covers are removable, washable, and re-purchasable as separates if needed make it a great choice for households with kids and pets in particular. The Movie Night Collection also comes in condo and regular sizes, the former being ideal for smaller spaces with its dimensions and pricing reflective of that. My favorite piece though might have been the simple yet sturdy, Parsons style Form Console. True to its name, it’s sized to be an apt entryway table, but it’d also be great behind a floating sofa or used as a desk.
Sundays also currently has one collaboration available, a trio of graphic rugs with Canadian artist and painter Scott Sueme (his Checkers Rug is shown below). Currently, textiles provide a category where the brand’s going bolder with color and experimentation, as evidenced by Sueme’s work. Plans for future collaborations weren’t available at press time, but the company is open to and plans on pursuing more at some point. They’ll also be adding onto the permanent collection but thoughtfully; offerings will always be edited down to what the Sundays founders feel best represent the brand’s aesthetic and make the shopping process feel hassle-free.
Prices aren’t cheap — they start at about $300 for small side tables and range into the mid-thousands for sectional sofas. That said, for solid wood pieces and performance fabrics, the ranges are on par with other quality home decor vendors. Free delivery is available on all orders, and complimentary assembly and packaging removal comes with delivery for larger items.
Two Sundays showrooms in Canada exist (Toronto and Vancouver), but there aren’t any in the U.S. yet. You can order free swatches to get a sense of colorways and fabrics before making purchases, and exchanges and refunds are accepted for new items within 30 days of delivery.
