Why a Modular Sofa is a Must-Have in your Living Space

Modular sofas are those where the individual seats and/or footrests can be separated into sections and moved around, to form different configurations.

With these versatile seating options, you can easily adapt your sofa to fit your requirements. Friends coming over? Make a u-shape for everyone to gather around. Binging the latest Netflix series? Bring the footrests out in front to create a cosy daybed. Need space for exercising? Just push the sections back against the wall and voila! Modular sofas are here to help you relax, your way.

Read on for our pick of the best modular sofas and to discover more about why they’re a must-have for your living space.
