Chaiselongue / September 17, 2018 / Ciara Conrad
With each different module constructed as if it were its own mini-sofa, with an independent frame, upholstery and top cover, there's a great deal of complexity to the manufacture of a modularsectional sofa. This is particularly true when it comes to the construction of specialised segments such as chaise longue modules which are atypical in shape and form and thus need to be carefully planned out from a design and mass manufacture perspective. The end result is that this can often lead to a considerable increase in the associated costs of production making sectionals far more expensive to produce conventionally designed sofas, which is then passed onto the end user through the conduit of the recommended retail price.
Finally, you may come across a linguistic division between suppliers from Europe who primarily opt for the description modular while suppliers from North America use the term sectional far more frequently. In part, this relates to our earlier point as most of the world's leading luxury manufactures are located within the European Union, reflecting the heritage of the traditional sofa as a product initially developed during the renaissance period of European history. However, that's not to say that you won't find a great modular sofa from an American manufacturer, far from it, it will simply be referred to by a different name!
