When a person can't be aware of moving parts around them (when the person is required to face away) s/he will have a harder time feeling comfortable and relaxing because survival instincts will kick in. So even if your sofa for some reason can't be positioned against a solid wall at the very least make sure it is positioned so it's not backed against a window.

However sectionals result in bad feng shui because the “L” shape of most sectionals inherently forms a large hard angle (“poison arrow”) in the living room.

If your family simply needs or really wants a sectional sofa consider lessening the harsh impact of the corner by placing a large plant behind the angle to serve as a buffer. Another solution is to position the sectional against a wall so the “arrow” aspect is decreased.

While interior trends lean toward floating the furniture out in the middle of the living room this is actually poor feng shui. In order for people to feel truly secure the largest seating element of a space should be “anchored” against a solid wall (similar to the headboard in a bedroom).

We've all been in the living room with a sofa that's so stuffed with throw pillows that there's barely room to perch on the edge of the cushion let alone sit comfortably and relaxed. Good feng shui sofas will be comfortable in their own right and they will also be furnished or accessorized comfortably – pillows and/or throws to lend comfort but not in excess.
