Sectional sofa: Left-hand Facing vs. Right-hand Facing

Left-Hand Facing vs. Right-Hand Facing


When purchasing a sofa, you will hear the phrases left-hand facing and right-hand facing, which can be a bit confusing. You will especially hear this phrase when shopping for sectional sofas with attached chaises. This means that as you are facing the sofa, the arm is on the side mentioned.

Right-Hand Facing: If you are standing facing a sectional and the chaise is on the right, it is a right-hand facing chaise. The arm of chaise is on the right, because the sofa continues to the left.
