Color to Enhance the Look of Your Furniture

Occasional Tables Add Style & Functionality

Complete your sectional styling with side tables made from any material that fits into your space. Tables in glass and shiny metal fit beautifully into a room with glam modern or contemporary style. Repurposed wood and iron may be the tables that look best in industrial decor. You get the idea, just suit your taste and your chosen interior style.

Lighting Can Be Calming or Flamboyant

A sectional sofa like the one in the Ballinasloe Collection designed by Signature Design by Ashley is one that begs for toss pillows to bring it to life. Whatever your colors of choice, you’re sure to find pillows in lots of shapes and sizes that will work well on your sectional.

Soft Throws Bring Texture to Your Space

No matter the season, throws can be flung across the back or arm of your sectional or draped on the corner a large ottoman you’ll fit in front of your sectional between the chaise and the sofa opposite. In spring and summer, lightweight cashmere throws can add stunning color and texture as well as provide just the right warmth for snuggling. One of the gorgeous long-haired faux furs will prove irresistible to you and your guests during cold damp days. 

Bring Your Living Space to Life with Art
