There are sectional sets that claim to be modern by portraying some enlightened path forward. But for every one of these efforts, is an equal and opposite reaction. The more we use our own guile to paddle forward, the more the stream of present reality seems to rush against us. Align was designed as an attempt to wash away those hindrances that obstruct growth. If there had been a choice, the designers would have kept Align just that. But while a sectional sofa set needs to be made curved, the intent was to stay true to the original concept. Align comes generously padded and upholstered in bonded leather, with slight button tufting and trim for only the gentlest effect.
