Lovesac Sactional Review



Are you shopping for a sectional sofa and considering the Lovesac Sactional sofa? We shopped and researched several different types of sectional sofas earlier this year 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.

Lovesac Sactional 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
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.

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.

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.

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. They air dry pretty quickly too. 

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 but they're not attached to the other sections.

If you like the look of ours, here's the sofa we selected → Our Lovesac Sofa. 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.

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.
