Lovesac Sactional Couch Review



Are you shopping for a sectional sofa and considering the Lovesac Sactional couch? I'm sharing everything you would want to know about owning one. We shopped and researched several different types of sectional couches and decided on the Sactional. 

And when I say we researched it, I mean we had a spreadsheet comparing warranties, costs, options, freight charges, delivery time, etc. We're a little bit obsessive on researching big purchases. But we hope to have it for 10 years so we wanted to get it right.

Anyway, I couldn't find many reviews at that time so I wanted to share what we found for anyone else who's looking at investing in one of them. This post is in no way sponsored by Lovesac. I just wanted to share our personal experience with our Lovesac sactional.

Lovesac Sactional Couch Pros and Cons


First of all, here are some things to consider before purchasing your Lovesac Sactional:

Pros:
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Endless configurations - you can arrange it any way you want! 
  • Free shipping - other brands have shipping charges up to $300
  • Helpful in-store salesperson
  • Free fabric samples
  • 60 day home trial
  • Unique concept
  • Washable covers
  • Frequent sales
  • 3 cushion choices
  • Quick delivery - ours arrived in 1 week and other brands would have taken a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks.
  • You can change the look of the sofa by replacing the covers
  • Sections lock together in multiple places for maximum stability
  • Options galore - You can add charging hubs to the sides, get seats with storage if desired, and you can change the look of the sofa by replacing the covers. 
  • Update - you can now add the new Stealthtech to existing love sac couches. It's a premium technology system seamlessly embedded inside the endlessly adaptable Sactionals platform. A unique combination of captivating 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound by Harman Kardon and wireless charging, it’s extraordinary.
Cons:
  • Assembly - You have to assemble it, including adding the covers to each part. Allow at least a couple of hours, depending on how much help you have. It's not difficult but I definitely recommend watching their assembly videos found here → lovesac sactional assembly video. We did and it saved us time and headaches.
  • Limited style choices.
  • Price - it's expensive but they run sales often. To see their current offers, go here → Current Lovesac Sales(scroll to the bottom of the page)
  • Depth of standard configuration - I wish we had ordered "deep sides" so the seats would be a 35" deep instead of 29". It's a little confusing because if you want "deep sides" then you actually need to order the smaller ones since the backs/side pieces will be 29" and not 35". Your depth will be larger than your width when you arrange the seats. See them here → lovesac sactional deep sides 

What was the deciding factor for us? The thing we love most of all is the flexibility. There are lots of different configurations with this sofa and you're not limited by odd pieces or "arms". You can see several configurations here → lovesac sactional configurations.
 

Are Lovesac Sactionals comfortable?

When we first got the Lovesac sactional, the cushions were a little firm. But after sitting and laying on them for a couple of weeks they relaxed somewhat. 

For us, they're comfortable. But we like cushions that are more firm and don't lose their shape. 

If you like softer cushions, you might want to go with the down blend or the Lovesoft cushion fill. FYI, we ordered the standard fill cushions.

Is Lovesac Furniture Expensive?

That all depends on how many pieces you want and the fabric you choose. The list prices for the sets range from $2000 to $8000 but that can vary depending on your choices of cushion fill, fabric, and accessories. 

And you can almost always get them on sale. For the current sale offers, go here and scroll to the bottom of the page → Current Lovesac Promotions. You can save up to 35%.

Can a Lovesac be used as a bed?

If falling asleep on it is any indication, then yes. I fall asleep on ours nearly every night. And we've used it as a guest bed before as well. With a little quick rearranging of the pieces, it's the perfect place for overflow guests. 



Here's what you can look forward to once your decide to order a sactional:

Lovesac Sactional Delivery:


How long did it take to arrive? Our sofa components were delivered about a week after we ordered. I can't say whether or not that's typical, but we were thrilled. 

The boxes, and there were many of them, arrived via Fedex on the rainiest day we've had all year, of course. We put all of the boxes in the living room and grouped them together according to what was inside each one.

I'm showing you the picture below to let you know how well they're packaged. You would think that whatever is inside this box would be ruined because it's soggy and even torn in one place.

We thought the same thing. But I'm happy to tell you that everything inside was in perfect condition. I took photos assuming I would need to file a claim with Fedex but it wasn't necessary.

Lovesac Sactional Unboxing


The boxes are packed very efficiently with the cushion inside of the frame. My husband is removing the cushion here.

As we removed the cushions and other items, we stacked them all together. It made assembly so much easier.

Likewise, we grouped each type of cover together.

And we stacked the shoes together with the group of clamps.

The legs are efficiently nestled inside of the shoes.

Lovesac Sactional Assembly


Once we opened all the packages and sorted all of the items, we began the assembly process. Before we even opened the boxes, we had watched their assembly videos. 

I highly recommend doing this. It will save you time and make things easier for you. I also recommend using this simple tool to help attach the clamps.

Attaching the legs isn't difficult but does take a few minutes for each one.

We recruited help from our youngest daughter and her boyfriend. With all 4 of us working together, it took a couple of hours from unboxing to completion. 

We just put on some good music and made the best of it. It's not complicated but does take time.

I didn't take photos of us placing the individual pieces and attaching them, but that part is actually pretty easy. 

Again, I recommend watching the videos that Lovesac has recorded for you. 

Lovesac Sactional Washability


How does it hold up in the wash? I love the light and airy feeling of the fabric we chose (Solid Seashell Polylinen) but was just a little nervous about how it would hold up in the wash. 

We use this sofa a lot and have already washed 3 different covers and I'm happy to report they wash beautifully. 

One cover had chocolate on it and thankfully it all came out! Two others had some fuzz/piling from a dark blue stonewashed cotton throw blanket that we were using and 99% of it came off too. 

I've switched to a lighter throw blanket so we won't have to deal with that any longer. Keep that in mind if you love to use throw blankets too. I'd recommend a lighter one or one that doesn't shed. 

Be sure to wash the covers on the delicate cycle in cold water and line dry and you shouldn't have any issues at all. I usually wash no more than 3 at a time and hang them to dry on this folding wooden drying rack. It's sturdy enough to hold them and they dry within a few hours. 

Rearranging the Sactional

How easy is it to rearrange? Although we haven't rearranged it much, I did take it apart and move it back a few inches soon after we set it up. 

I was able to do it by myself without too much trouble. And we do move the ottomans pretty regularly.

If you like the look of ours, here's the couch we selected → Our Lovesac Couch. We have the standard cushion fill. 

Our last sofa had down cushions and we HATED them because they were always flat. But maybe you don't mind that. Totally a personal decision.
The Lovesac Company

That pretty much covers everything that I can think to tell you about our Sactional sofa. If you have any questions please leave them in the comment section and I'll do my best to answer it. 

Bottom line...would we order it again? Yes, definitely. But I would probably get the "deep sides" instead of the standard ones for 2 of the seats. 

They make it possible to turn the cushions 90 so that they're not as wide, but are deeper. It would be nice if the cushions in the center were slightly deeper than what we have now. 

We can already adjust the end/corner sections so they're deeper with the components that we have. Just my two cents worth. We'll probably get them eventually. 

Update: Here are a couple more recent pictures of the sactional with some fall pillows on the. I love the fact that I can use any color with this fabric.

  1. Beautiful sectional, Angie. The entire room looks fabulous.

  2. Hi, I am looking at this exact same couch and same material. Could you tell me how the fabric is holding up now that you have had it longer? Do you have any issues with it pilling, or little fuzzies getting stuck to it?

    1. Hi! We've now had the sofa about 8 months and still love it. We've washed at least 4 of the seat cushion covers (it's a white sofa...) and haven't had any issues with the sofa fabric pilling. If you use a dark throw blanket or wear dark fuzzy/textured clothes than you'll probably see leftover remnants from those. These would be left on anything, but will show up more on the white-ish fabric. If you have pets or children (or a messy grown up), plan on washing the covers periodically, depending on how much abuse the cushions get.

      One thing I've found helpful is rotating the cushions regularly so they're all broken in at the same rate. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions and if you decide to get this fabric.

  3. Can you give us another update on how the sofa is holding up? Does it still look vibrant? Looking currently at the exact same sofa color. Thanks!!

    1. Hi! Yes, it's still vibrant. It's a white-ish sofa and will show dirt and dark lint, of course. I've washed most of the seat cushion covers at least once and they launder nicely. As I stated in the post, I would advise against wearing dark jeans on it for long periods of time, or using a fuzzy dark throw blanket. Dark lint shows up more than light lint, lol. Let me know if you have any other questions!

  4. Hello!! Also looking for a current update!! Love the look and all your suggestions and advice. How about slouching? The back cushions. Are they slouching? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Dawn,
      Our sofa isn't experiencing any slouching. The back cushions have held their shape beautifully. If you go with the down cushions that might be an issue. Something to keep in mind when deciding your cushion fill. I hope that helps! ~ Angie

  5. Hi! The chart you linked to show your comparison of the other couch options seems to be linking to the Lovesac website. Do you mind sharing that comparison? I’m actually looking at the same exact couches you are (plus the axis ii from crate and barrel) and am so torn!!

    1. Hi Jola,
      The chart that I linked to was originally on the Lovesac site but I see that's it's not there any longer. Sorry about that. I'll see if I can find another one and will update my link. So far I haven't found one but will email you if I do! ~ Angie

  6. Did you have a hard time getting the side covers on? Any tips? Mine was just delivered and I cannot get the side covers to cover all the way to the bottom

    1. Hi. It's definitely a bit of a workout getting all of the covers on securely. I don't have any specific tips except make sure they're lined up correctly at the top, and be sure to watch their youtube video on applying the covers here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl3GDW-FBWE

  7. Hi what filling did you get?

  8. Do you have any problems with the cushion slide?

    1. Hi Shanna,

      Sometimes the cushions do want to shift a bit. I make sure the velcro strips are free of lint and pet hair and that usually makes them stay in place better. Like any couch, you have to occasionally fluff and straighten the cushions with this one. I hope that helps!
