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.
Perhaps the only other difference between the terms sectional sofa and modular sofas is actually one of emphasis. Arguably, the term sectional refers purely descriptively to a functional aspect of a sofa whereas modular conveys something more intangible about the product related to lifestyle and ergonomics. For this reason, you'll tend to see higher end manufacturers referring to their product as a modular sofa while value retailers use the term sectional to describe the same product. There is also a noticeable rise in interior designers referring to the expression modular living to convey a sense that many discerning consumers are demanding more flexibility and versatility from their home living spaces.
