Its modulars provide cozy seating for everyone and enables facing each other which is convenient for holding mutual conversations. Most common type of configuration consists of two chaises at each end of a sofa or three sofas pulled together at 90-degree angle.

Choosing the set option forces you to know the room’s layout to place longer part against the wall with the protruding arm of the sofa on the correct side. That way most of those seated face focal point so even watching TV is much easier.

Curved or Semi-Circular Sofas would fit perfectly in stylish and trendy interiors. There are no such things as extended arms or sharp edges. It does not save the space, therefore, could be ideal for spacious great rooms. Lack of 90-degree angle allows for creating a storage unit in the free corner behind the seating.
