It is unlike rugs or accessories, frequently found accenting other showrooms – those are products that are often smaller and can be easily moved around, but an upholstered sectional: that’s the hero of the room scene and it’s here to stay. One observation Coogan had from this past market was that showrooms tended to play it safe – she would love to see bolder choices being made, and, of course, just on more giant sectionals in general.
