What Are Modular Sofas?
Just as the title of the post implies – they’re chameleons! They can transform and take any form you require.
Modular sofas comprise a few independent sections that are movable and changeable. These sections are called modules, and you can think of them as pieces of a lego set. Change how they’re set, and voila! You have an entirely new couch in minutes.
A Brief History Of Modular Sofas
We saw the advent of modernism during the late 1800s. The trend encouraged breaking free of the traditional norms and experimenting with new possibilities. Minimalism replaced glamour, and intelligent designing took the place of conventional decor.
Practicality is the primary focus of modern design form, giving rise to functional and multi-purpose furniture pieces like modular sofas.
Since then, these sofas took the modern trends by storm and quickly gained popularity among the masses for their flexibility. Huge designer names gave out a collection featuring these bespoke pieces.
Why Should I Get A Modular Sofa For My Living Room?
Well, there are several reasons. But for starters, I am only naming and elaborating a few:
1. They Change Shapes
It’s not too often to have a sofa that changes into a bed, an ottoman, a coffee table, or a footstool. But modular sofas can do it all.
The movable sections can be shifted from one place to another to comply with your needs. Have a friend crashing at your home? Make him a bed in the living room. Planning a movie night with kids? Place all the modules in a circle around the television.
2. They Change Sizes
Just like there’s a free size in dresses, modular sofas come in one size that fits all rooms. The addition and subtraction of the modules make them perfect for placing in all kinds of rooms.
Is your living room cozy and too tight for a giant sofa? Take off a few modules and place them in the bedroom, maybe? And what if you have a vast space that needs to be filled? Buy two sets and mix and match, creating a bespoke blend of patterns and colors.
3. They Can Be Customized
And I don’t only mean customization in the placement of modules. You can customize the modules themselves. Most brands produce models with different accessories. You could get a set with armrests, ottomans, a central, and a corner piece.
Or try spicing things up a bit by adding and removing some pieces. The best thing about modular sofas is that they are adaptable to your needs and comfort.
4. They Give Control
Do off-the-mill designs bore you too? Are you tired of looking at similar structures in the market? Well, not anymore! With modular sofas, you can change all that!
Get control of your sofa’s design, the configuration of its units, its orientation in your room, and how it looks. You can add pieces, take a few off, and produce a couch representing YOU!
5. They Can Change Everyday
You buy a sofa, put it in your living room, and have a few friends over to show them how good it looks. Then what? They will be old news a few weeks later and may even bore you with how they look EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!
How about changing how the sofa and your living room look every month, week, or even day. You can look for ideas and set the sections accordingly. Try a new combination each time and then come up with the decor that matches it.
6. They Match All Styles
Despite them being descendants of the modernism movement, modular sofas have an excellent ability to match almost every theme. All you need to do is play with the materials, colors, configurations, and accessories, and your chameleon blends with your room’s theme.
They can be L-shaped, U-shaped, arranged into a sofa bed, single units, or footrests. The adaptability offers a tremendous advantage in all decor themes.
7. They Are Easy To Move
Remember the F.R.I.E.N.D.S episode where Ross had to get a couch up to his apartment, and despite him shouting “pivot” a million times, they couldn’t get the job done. Now imagine if Ross got a modular sofa instead.
Moving one would have been extremely easy. Just pick one section up at a time and take it wherever you want without another person’s help. You can change rooms, climb stairs, or load them in your car’s trunk. The compact size and the lightweight make them portable as regular sofas could never be.
So let’s not be like Ross and get rid of the pivoting once and for all!
How Do I Decorate My Living Room/Space Around My Modular Sofa?
Decorating around a modular sofa is so easy; I could do it with my eyes shut! Their ability to morphe gives you the freedom to design without any limitations.
Here are a bunch of ideas that you could use as inspirations:
- For a living room with heavy traffic, make the most out of your sofa and align all modules in line with a few accompanying ottomans on both sides. Declutter around it and follow a minimal theme, so your couch becomes the primary focus of the space.
- If your primary objective is being a couch potato and watching television all day, get a module out and put it in front of the last one. You can now lay with your legs raised on one corner of the sofa. Also, put armrests on both sides. Design the rest of the room with comfy vibes. Put warm lights, side tables, a magazine rack, a television console, and a minimalistic coffee table in front of the sofa.
- To make your living space welcoming and somewhere your friends would love to hang, divide the sofa into a two-seater and a couple of ottomans, surrounding a generous center table. Add a few cushions to the picture, and your living room will be a go-to place to catch up on the latest gossip.
