If you love the look of farmhouse, cottage, Hampton’s and/or rustic – this sectional will fit the bill. Cozy, comfy and oh-so-welcoming, you’ll never want to get off the couch!

You’ve had a sneak peek of our gorgeous new sofa when I was showing off my coffee table refurb – but today I’m going to show you the ultimate piece of furniture just made for families – the Wilcot sectional from Ashley HomeStore Canada.
Our family room is a fair size at 14′ x 17′, so finding furniture to make the space feel ‘cozy’ was a bit of a task. Previously we had two full-sized sofas flanking each side of the room and a large coffee table filling the centre – but it wasn’t conducive to cuddle time with the kids.
This time around I knew I wanted a sectional. Something large and in-charge to better utilize the space, give a feeling of warmth and allow the girls and I to snuggle in together over a bowl of popcorn.
I shopped a few stores, but as soon as I tested the Wilcot sectional at Ashley HomeStore I was sold. The classic roll arms give that “cottage” feel and make a soft resting spot for weekend naps. The upholstery is a plush chenille in a “linen” colour and is much softer than many of the other upholstered pieces I tried. As someone that tends to fall asleep during family movies, a soft resting place that wouldn’t scratch my skin off was important.
The seat backs are loose – as in not attached to the sectional – so they are easily plumped or flipped, but the filling in the Wilcot is quite lofty, so I doubt anything more than a lift will be needed for years to come.
The sectional seats are covered with the same linen fabric on all sides, which is great for
extra stain space flipping them over to balance the wear. I had no idea this was a special feature on furniture – but many upholstered pieces come with only one side of the seat cushion covered with fabric. Often the other side is a cheap filler piece of material that saves you money, but limits the lifespan of your piece.
In addition, this sectional comes with 2 layers of cushioned comfort – a high-density foam core encased in thick polyfill for extra loft and life.
For our family room, we went with the Wilcot 4-piece sectional with a left-arm chaise. I have ALWAYS WANTED A CHAISE! Seriously, who doesn’t dream of an ultra-plush seat that they can stretch their legs on? This corner was stamped as mine even before we left Ashley HomeStore Canada. lol
If you’re looking for family furniture for a larger or smaller room, the Wilcot can be purchased in various combinations, with the roll arms available on either side so you can piece together your dream sectional to accommodate any space or configuration.
This corner section is where we snuggle together with movie treats.
Comfortable, sophisticated, cozy and covered with decorative pillows; seriously, 9 coordinating throw pillows come with this sectional – all with feather inserts. Keep the style of the Wilcot sectional with the throw pillows included, or use the inserts and create your own throw pillow covers to match your decor or the season. I see some navy blue in my future…
The sun at my back lighting a carefree read and my favourite tea within reach – happy sigh.
Having never owned a sectional before I was concerned that movement on the couch would cause the pieces to pull apart over time. Not so my friends – and this may be a feature of all sectionals, I’m not sure – but each piece is cleverly locked in place with hardware brackets so that nothing shifts or moves until you unlatch it.
Yes, family friendly furniture – because you know if there is anyone under the age of 7 in your house, there will be sofa jumping – and no one wants to wipe blood off of their new sectional (or kids) because someone has fallen between the pieces.
Speaking of blood, Ashley HomeStore offers a 1 year limited warranty on cushioning, upholstery and finishes and a LIFETIME limited warranty on the frame. In addition to this you can purchase (and with a dog, two cats and two kids I did purchase this myself) a 5-year product protection plus plan that will cover your Wilcot sectional for everything from pizza stains and crayons to accidental rips or premature fabric failure. You can have someone come out and spot clean any accidental stains you get on your sectional and if the stain can’t be removed, your Wilcot will be REPLACED! (limited warranty, some exclusions apply)
Did I mention that I took delivery of my sectional within 2 weeks of placing my order? Yup, they had to order in the left-arm chaise from the States and it was still delivered in record time!
Do you get the impression I’m pleased with my purchase/partnership with Ashley HomeStore Canada?
Yeah, if you’re looking for me – I’ll be right here.
