When I was a teenager, my family moved into a new custom built home. This beautiful country abode consisted of an oversized family room. Before moving into this home, my parents went on a shopping mission to fill up the new family room with furniture. They settled on a large plush sectional sofa. This luxurious piece of furniture boasted two reclining chairs, a condiment table, and a hideaway storage compartment. Over the next few years, this functional couch became the gathering place for my parents, my younger sister, and me. We watched movies, reminisced about the past, and ate snacks on this sturdy furniture item. On this blog, you will discover several reasons why the sectional sofa is the perfect piece of furniture for families.
