Modular seating systems allow you to make the most out of a space. Whether it’s modular chairs and cubes for living rooms, for lofts or the dining area, their versatility and flexibility let you thrive. The following modern systems are great for reception areas, libraries, teen rooms or the home.
1. Hug Modern Sofa
You look like you could use a hug… sofa, that is! The Hug Modern Sofa brings to mind memories of pillow forts and cuddling up in a warm fleece blanket. Large, plump cushions cradle you much like a bed would; it certainly makes sleeping on the sofa sound a lot better.
Mix and match components to make a loveseat, extra-long couch or double-sided lounger. No matter how you arrange it, it’s the comfiest couch you’ll ever own.
A waiting room is seldom the place for relaxation. Tense minutes turn into long hours; whether you’re waiting in a hospital, hotel lobby or office space, you want to at least be comfortable.
The Chill-Out Modular Seating System combines the pleasure of comfortable seating with the added bonus of a coffee table, making your waiting experience much more pleasant.
3. Iconic Home Loungie Bench
For an ultra-modern relaxation spot, try the Iconic Home Loungie Bench. This haven is made from pliable and plush multi-density foam that supports your spine and legs while you work on your laptop, watch TV, or catch a cat nap after a long day.
Several units can be placed next to each other to create a loveseat, large sofa or guest bed.
4. Kerman Sofa
Let’s take a trip back to the basics of modular design. Kerman is simple and efficient, with dashing good looks to boot. It doesn’t need any fancy patchwork or intricate pattern to make your living room look beautifully modern; it just needs you to plop down on it and enjoy its benefits and comfort.
5. Mangas Space Set
Are you in the mood for something playful and fun? Try the Mangas Space Set! This furniture set comes with a Rhombus module, two pufs and a geometric rug in stunning colors and patterns.
Its femininity is topped only by its combination possibilities with other Mangas, which are made to work together should you have multiple sets. Your afternoon can only be made better by this cheerful sofa set with energizing bursts of patterns and hues.
6. Rodolfo Seating System
The Rodolfo Modular Seating is a furniture piece without borders or frame. Conforming to any space with an eclectic design, this design sofa can easily be made into a series of chairs, a table or daybed.
Its bright colors make it an extravagant-looking addition to your living room or office space, and its versatility prove that it’s a worthy opponent for other couches on the market.
7. Alphabet Straight Sofa
The Alphabet Sofa wins the prize for being absolutely classy. Unlike other sofas, it has several variants that allow buyers to customize it to the shape of their room.
Cornered or straight sofa backings provide firm support while allowing you to personalize your comfort. Since the variants allow you to push more than one Alphabet Sofa together, you can add on to it later if you so choose.
8. Rift Composition
A lot of modular furniture is boxy and bland; not the Rift range. Designed to sit in the middle of a room, this Y-shaped couch can be used in a variety of ways.
Rift Composition by designer Patricia Urquiola is comfortable for a group of people to hang out, but the angle of the seats allows strangers to sit without being forced too close together. Even the low, wide back can be used as a seat.
9. Mags Modular Sofa
Mags from Hay is a modular seating unit which offers endless combinations – a small couch, a lounger, or a long corner unit. It’s designed as a life-long investment: start with a basic two-person sofa, and then add more modular units to lengthen it if you move to a larger house or have children.
Although the sofa looks (and feels) like a pile of squishy cushions, it has a pinewood frame and cold-cure polyester padding which means it holds its shape and doesn’t sag.
10. Moon chaise longue
Lina’s Moon Chaise Longue is an absolutely stellar piece of modular furniture. Bold and bright, its pieces fit snugly together to form a comfortable daybed and can be transformed with a simple nudge to one of its cushions.
Pushing upper cushions flips them into an upright position to function as a lounge chair or recliner. Use the Moon Chair as a coffee table, sofa or play mat for your children. The fabric is easily washable should you make a mess.
11. Reed Reconfigurable Deep Seating
Much like the UrbanMod Reversible Sofa, the Reed Sofa can be assembled in a variety of ways. However, Reed Reconfigurable Deep Seating has much more than just two options.
This modular sofa seating set has almost endless possibilities thanks to add-ons and rearrangeable pieces. Extra deep cushions allow you to kick your feet up and take a load off, and the soft foam cushions stay supportive thanks to Reed’s anti-sag design.
12. MaH Jong Sofa
A feminine touch can be just what your space needs to liven it up, and the Mah Jong Sofa more than delivers on that front. Its playful patterns and velvety seats will make your friends green with envy when they see the sense of style you have.
Better yet, the cushions can be rearranged to fit your living space despite any obstacles. Several color and pattern options are available to let you find the sofa that’s just right for you.
13. Rope Modular Sofa
The name Rope comes from the piping around the edge of this modular seating system, the only external decoration which hasn’t been stripped away from the minimalist design.
The Rope Modular Sofa features 12 interchangeable modules, and they have been built for comfort as well as style; the seats are filled with pocket springs, most commonly used in mattresses, rather than the usual foam rubber.
14. Halfway Extensible Sofa Series
The Halfway Sofa is the firm foundation your home needs. Its strong build and solid cushions make it a fashion force to be reckoned with. Its functionality stops only when you let it, as you can arrange it into any configuration you like without hesitation.
Instead of bold colors, the Halfway lets you add your own while maintaining a quiet but calm exterior, signaling its strength without the need for flare.
15. Bikini Island
Bikini Island may sound like a getaway filled with beautiful, swimsuit-clad women, but it’s actually a tropical island paradise right in your living room in the form of the world’s most interesting modular sofa.
The rearrangable cushions can be easily integrated with various other components available from designer Werner Aisslinger to create a home away from home with all the elements of your favorite vacation spot.
16. Align 4 Piece Sofa Set
The Align is a low-backed range of sectional seating, available in either fabric or leather. This four piece set contains two small love seats, a corner seat, and a pouffe, which make a complete furniture set or can be added to with extra pieces.
The design is sleek and modern, with just a narrow trim and shallow button tufting to add interest.
17. Cubit Modular Sofa
Your living space can be transformed into a centerpiece work of art with the Cubit modular sofa system. Varying heights allow you to choose which of the four pieces you want to lounge on.
Rearranging is easy, but you may be so comfortable on its soft fabric that you won’t want to get up. Cleaning is as easy as removing the sofa’s covers and tossing them in the wash.
18. Hinchada Modular Lounge
Raw composition meets fashion chic in this modular seating system from Loewenstein. With a bit of Parisian flair and just a touch of organic design, the Hinchada makes your living space livable again.
No longer will you have to be embarrassed by dull furniture or lack of proper seating. The pieces of this sofa system easily pull apart and rearrange to your specifications in the blink of an eye.
19. Courage Modular Based System
It takes bravery to make a bold statement, and that’s exactly why the Courage modular based system was named this way. Rather than be burdened by overly intricate design mechanisms, Courage goes back to basics with neutral colors and a minimalist form.
You’ll never get tired of switching the pieces around to suit your mood, as the combinations are endless. Make it your own with various arrangements and complimentary add-ons.
20. AVL Glyder
The AVL Glyder Line has a wonderfully muted design that fits in with just about any venue. Whether you’re using it for a hotel, office workspace or your very own living room, the AVL adds every bit of fashion and function that it should.
The sofa is suspended on a smaller block to create space underneath, and the backrest has a smooth gliding motion that gives the it its name.
21. Confluences Seating Units
Why be normal when you can be outstanding? That’s what the creators of the Confluences seating units thought when they designed this unique-looking furniture piece. The three chairs lean into each other in a fluid motion making it hard to tell where one piece ends and the other begins.
Despite this molded style, the chairs can be switched to create opposite facing and other arrangements more appropriate for different situations.
22. Dolmen Sofa
Neutral tones on plush, chunky cushions make up the splendid Dolmen modular sofa. The sofa comes in a matching color combination of white, gray and blue and is as cool as it is comfy.
Although monotone grays are available as well, we much prefer the tasty color choices the standard version has to offer. The cushions are all hypo-allergenic and safe for those who may be more sensitive to fabrics and dust allergies.
23. Big Joe Modular Sectional
This cozy sofa has an unexpected feature. Can you guess what it is? Big Joe’s Modular Sectional Sofa can be used both outdoors and indoors. Much of outdoor furniture is brittle and uncomfortable, but this sectional sofa is nothing but dreamy.
Soft, cozy cushions can seat up to four people depending on how you assemble it. Oh, did we forget to mention? The sofa can be rearranged or used in individual pieces, and the frame is very lightweight for mobility.
