Sectional sofas are all the rage because of how versatile it is - you can arrange them in different variations to suit your lifestyle and space.
When looking for the perfect sectional sofa, you would have come across our Jonathan and Todd collections. While they are fairly similar, they still have certain standout features that set them apart.
Let’s take a deeper look at how both sectional sofas compare and how they can fit in your home!
The Jonathan Sectional Sofa is a modern piece that would make a great addition to a minimal and contemporary-themed home. The sofa comes in three different variations: a chaise, an L-shape sectional, and a chaise with an ottoman.
The sofa has a flange seam detail that accentuates its boxy silhouette which makes this piece unique.

The modular design of the Jonathan Sectional Sofa allows you to fit multiple units together to form a larger sofa. You can freely rearrange the units to suit your environment and lifestyle, or dismantle them to free up space on quieter days.
The Todd Sectional Sofa is similar to Jonathan in that it is a minimal and modern sofa that can gel well with any interior style.
In comparison to Jonathan, the Todd Sectional Sofa is slightly smaller in size (296cm vs 208cm) and has a lower seat height (41cm vs 36cm). Also, Todd doesn’t have the flange seam detailing, which gives the sofa a cleaner and more minimalist look.

Likewise, Todd’s modular design allows you to configure the sofa to fit your needs. But, Todd has a left and right chaise module, which gives you even more freedom to arrange the sofa however you desire.

Both the Jonathan and Todd Sectional Sofas are minimal pieces that can elevate your home and give you maximum comfort. So, which collection should you choose?
If you only have a small space to work with yet regularly host parties or large groups, Todd would be a good choice. It has a smaller seating area which is ideal when it’s just you, and you can whip out the chaise module when you have guests over to ensure ample seating space.
Jonathan, on the other hand, is the ideal all-rounded sectional sofa. Its boxy and low-to-the-ground silhouette fits perfectly into any space and its large seating capacity ensures you never run out of space.
We hope that this article has helped you understand the differences between both sectional sofa collections and narrowed down your choice.
Some sectional sofas simply use gravity to stay together so you can align units to form a larger seating area. Other sectional designs come with clips or heavy-duty bolts and screws to ensure that they stay in place.
It depends. As mentioned above, some sectional sofas come with connecting pieces that are easy to clip in and out. Other modular sofas might come with more heavy-duty bolt or screw connections, offering a more semi-permanent kind of stability. These are not recommended if you want to move your sofa around on a regular basis.
Deal with any stains or marks as quickly as possible and carry out regular cleaning in the form of vacuum cleaning, wiping down with clean damp cloths, and using only products recommended by the manufacturer. For more details, check out our guide on how you can clean a fabric sofa.
