Corner sofas can fit into the most compact living spaces, making them perfect for small homes and character properties such as flats, Victorian terraces or a country cottage. Contemporary modular seating can look great in open-plan rooms – position a corner sofa to create a relaxed living space that’s separate from an open-plan kitchen or conservatory. Be inspired by our pick of the best corner settee designs for modern and traditional homes – choose from button-back sofas, smart Italian designs, loose-cover sofas, leather corner sofas and neutral country-style upholstery. And the good news is that modular corner sofas can be taken apart easily when you redecorate or move.
