Custom Sectionals in San Francisco
Sofa Creations is the best place to build a custom sectional, sofa, or sleeper in San Francisco. Derek Nazzal, our owner, grew up in a family of furniture makers and has carried on the tradition by handcrafting sectionals right here in California.
Every sectional ordered from Sofa Creations is handmade by skilled, local craftspeople, and we customize your sofa to the exact dimensions, color, and style you prefer. You can start designing your sectional by browsing our most popular styles online, or you can contact us to share your unique vision for a completely custom piece.
Most Popular Sectional Styles
There are several shapes or styles of sectionals you may want to consider for your home, including L-Shape, Curved, and Chaise Sectionals. Let’s look at some of the most popular designs from each style:
An L-Shaped sectional is, as the name suggests, shaped like a capital letter L. If you were to fuse a two sofas together in a right angle at the armrests, you would have an L-Shaped sectional. Usually, one section is longer than the other, but we can design your sectional to your preferred dimensions. For example, our Easton Sectional includes two sides of equal length.
A curved sectional is similar to an L-Shaped sectional, but the connecting point is curved instead of angular. For example, our Belmont sectional has a curved back instead of a right angle, like the one in our Dante L-Shaped sectional.
A chaise sectional looks like a sofa connected to a chaise longue (a chair with an outstretched seat). For example, our Davis sectional is shown with a left-facing chaise.
You can also choose a bumper chaise design like our Hayes Bumper Chaise sectional, which includes extra back cushions in place of side cushions, if you want even more lounging options.

FAQs About Choosing a Sectional
Have some more questions about choosing a sectional? Here are some questions we frequently answer for clients before they make a decision:
How big should a sectional be?
We customize your sectional to your exact dimensions to fit perfectly in your room. If you're not sure where to start, we recommend measuring your current sofa or sectional to decide what dimensions would be most comfortable. Consider the following questions:
- How deep do you want your seat?
- How long and wide should each side of the sectional be to allow plenty of space for people to walk through your room?
- If you choose a chaise sectional, how long should the chaise extend to accommodate your height?
- Finally, what are the dimensions of every doorway and hallway we’ll have to pass through to move your sectional into your home?
What is the best upholstery material for a sectional?
We help clients pick their favorite colors and patterns in microfiber upholstery for their sectionals. Microfiber is the ideal material for a sectional because it’s durable, easy to clean, and has a long life.
Should I get a left- or right-facing sectional?
If you choose a sectional with one side longer than the other or with a chaise seat, you’ll have to tell your furniture maker whether you want the shorter side or chaise to be left- or right-facing. When you are standing facing the sectional, a left-facing sectional has the shorter side or chaise on the left; a right-facing sectional has the shorter side or chaise on the right.
We recommend considering the foot traffic in your room to decide whether your sectional should be left- or right-facing. Try not to impede the walkway with your sectional design.
