L Shape vs Traditional Couch Layout

My couch broke a while ago, and I need to replace it. I’ll probably have to sell it off in the next few weeks. In the mean time, I need to find a replacement.

What do you guys think of a L shape couch versus a traditional layout (sofa and love seat). Here are two that I was looking at yesterday with Annie.

Let me know if you have any advice. Most folks say that the sectional couch looks better, but the traditional layout is more flexible and has more arm rests. Thoughts?
