Please help me decide between two couches: a chaise sectional, and a two-piece sectional!

My SO and I are trying to choose between two sectional couches (image here
). Neither of us have owned either type of couch before. What are the advantages/disadvantages to each? The image in the link above shows the dimensions of the two couches and the room in which one of them will ultimately reside.
Our basic arguments for and against each are: the chaise takes up less space (and may take that space up less awkwardly) but seats fewer people and the two-piece may sit awkwardly in the middle of the room (one of the two backs of that couch would not be against a wall).
Do you have experience with either of these two styles of couches? What aspects are we not considering? Which one should we get? (For the purpose of this question assume we will get one of these two and other arrangements (a normal couch with two separate chairs) is not an option).
