We have a bit of a furniture waste problem here in the U.S. — each year, we dump more than nine million tons of furniture into landfills. That's why Detroit-based furniture company Floyd is on a mission to build affordable, durable, and versatile pieces. Its latest product launch is The Sectional, a modular seating system that launches today.
The major issue with traditional sectionals is that their static configuration could lead to layout issues if you move apartments or houses — perhaps you have a right-side chaise but only a left-side chaise works in your new space. That way you don't have to buy a new couch if your needs change.
The Sectional's nine seat options allow for ultra-flexible configurations — perfect for anyone on the move. You can even add sections later on — including a table and ottoman — so the sofa can grow with you if you're upgrading from a small apartment to a house in the 'burbs.
Looks-wise, the low-profile sectional sofa is quite contemporary, but not too harsh — each seat is a full block that appears to sit directly on the ground (no legs here!). It's upholstered with extra-durable performance fabric that's moisture-repellent and stain-resistant. It comes in three neutral hues, plus a soft blue and green. And you can add some flange-stitch pillows for extra comfort!
Starting at $1,540, The Sectional is now on sale here.
