Thus, can't get it to clamp together when you try to put 2 bases or even the side together. If without cover.... it clamp in with no problem at all. Was it just me bad luck getting the unfit cover (defective one) or everyone else also running into the same problem? Any comment would be appreciated... thanks smile.gif

I bought six bases and five sides and the rhinoplush fabric about a month ago. I don't clamp the bases together. Just the sides. The square blocks that the base legs go into will hold the bases together fine.

I also had to apply some force to get the some of the sides clamped to the bases. The covers definitely add some more material that tightens the fit.

A year later ours is in great shape. Planning to disassemble at some point soon and wash the covers. We have fallen asleep on them and slept comfortably through the night while in movie lounger mode. Just bought a house that has a long and thin family area so thinking we will be in permanent movie lounger mode biggrin.gif

We also skip most of the base to base clamps. Use the clams for base to side hook ups with the footings for base to base connections.

Had mine since 4/2011. Still look great, even with 3 cats tearing into them all the time. I currently have the Lounger (4 bases/4 sides) and a love seat (2 base/4 sides) in series 5 because my home is only just over 1000 ft with 3 bedrooms. I also now have a city sac.

Hi Sactional Owners,

I am seriously looking into the Sactional for my home. As far as durability, has anyone had any major spills or pet accidents (cat urination) on their Sactional? And, how well did it clean up? The sales associate just about sold me on the RhinoPhur, wash-ability and ability to replace one cushion insert on an as needed basis. Anyone with experience in this area? I have an old cat, who is having some trouble with re-occuring accidents on our sofa (thus need to replace). Trying to determine if the price tag and durability are worth the investment ... or swing over to IKEA for something <1/3 of the price, but replace in a few years.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Hello, I just discovered Sactionals yesterday and was thrilled to learn that the features I was looking for in a rec room sectional (washable covers, versatility, and small enough to fit down the stairs) actually existed. I have read through the this thread and am glad to see a few posts from people who have found them to hold up well over time. But, I am interested in hearing from someone about their washing experience. Have you really just thrown them in the washer and hung them to dry? Did stains come out? How did the fabric feel afterwards? Was it still soft? Did the covers go back on easily? Thanks.

Hi! I'm on the fence about purchasing a sactional and have been looking up reviews, which obviously led me here. Now that it has been a few years since your purchase how are the sactionals holding up? Did you ever put the covers to wash, how did they hold up? Do you still enjoy them or have any regrets? How was the customer service? Any info would be greatly appriciated! Thanks again in advance!

 

Best Regards,

Jessa

I am contemplating buying a used, but good condition 6 Series.

The issue is buying a used couch is hard. The one in question is 2 years old and has rhinoplush covers. It looks and feels to be in good shape.

Any thoughts on buying a used Sactional?

Glad I came across this thread!

I live in a one bedroom apt, single father of 3 kids (don't ask how, we just make it work. Currently using a futon as a sofa in the living room, however the futon affects my current SI joint pain that I've developed and it's time for the futon to go.

I came across the Love Sac showroom at a local mall, and instantly was drawn to the compact design of the sactional sofa setup, and it's perceived comfortability. But ohhhh the price! 6 series for a basic L-shaped config. currently totaling approx. $3400+ tax incl. C'mon!!!

Sales rep said he's only seen 20% discounts on the sofa covers maybe 2-3 in his time working, and typically the promotions are for things like a free throw pillow, blanket, etc. basically something not entirely useful or something I truly care about at least.

Problem for me is that the sactionals are actually ideal for my living arrangement and I feel they will stand the test of time with the kids (9yr old twins and a 3yr old). But ohhhh the price!

Labor Day is approaching and the sales rep stated to anticipate some sort of "big" promotion however my gut feeling is telling me that the overall prices for these sactionals have increased leading up to a proposed "big" promotion which essentially offsets/cancels out any real discount.

Alternatives I'm contemplating are La-z-boy or Ikea or Craigslist, however I prefer something new because of germs, etc., Especially with kids.

I see in this thread that quite a few periodically check back for updates as to whether others have any buyers remorse and the consensus overall appears positive. So now that it's close to 4-5yrs since the OP, I'm hoping to resurrect this discussion and gain some additional thoughts or guidance before I make a final decision. Time in which to make the purchase isn't very pressing because my kids and I can make-do with the bare minimum for now, however I am getting rid of the futon this weekend because my back simply can't take much more discomfort while I'm seeking therapy to help alleviate the problem.

I'll end there and thank everyone for at least reading my post and extend an extra verbal-token of my gratitude for responses and sound guidance.

Take care

The best discounts I've seen are during the Black Friday week. Last year I picked up a 6 series Movie lounger set with Taupe rhinoplush covers for $2800. As my theater room has to double as a guest room on occaision, I needed something that could also serve as a bed. When I put a 3" memory foam queen mattress topper on it, its perfect for that. In fact, we've found that its more comfortable as a movie lounger with the foam topper too. I'm planning on adding two more bases to effectively widen the movie lounger, which should then also be about the right size for a king memory topper.

Thank you for the reply. I've been scouring the internet for additional reviews, etc., and it does appear that Black Friday may be the ideal time to try and make a discounted purchase of some significance. Gives me time to shop around I guess.

We bought some of these about 6 years ago...we have 5 bases and they're very comfortable. The back cushions aren't as nice as we would like (or as nice as our friends' or the showroom) but they said they would replace it and it's so far from us we haven't done it

Regardless, I love the modularity, and the comfort level is very high. The covers are very expensive, we bought ours on Halloween 5 or so years ago because they did a 31% off for the first person in the store, then 30% for the next person...etc. etc. I waited in line and was the first one in so we saved a ton. Covering 5 full bases and back pieces was like $600+ with the discount.

Building a new home, our last with a completely custom dedicated movie room is sold after years of hard work.

New home will have more of a fun hang-out vibe but want a nice couch/movie watching space for teens to hang out.

Found love sac (funny, I remember seeing them way back on the show with Richard Branson or whatever his name is, that must have been 10 years ago or so..) in local mall and really like the modular/adaptable idea, but cost is high and not convinced material quality will hold up.

So I'm subscribing here because we have some time before house is built and so hoping some more long term feedback from those who own them.

Good, cheap, easy - pick any two.

Hi PAP,

We've been using Lovesac Sactionals for 4 years now. We currently have 17 bases and 24 sides. This is the only furniture we use in our house. We have a couch and chair in our family room, a sectional setup in our gameroom, and a sectional setup in our media room. Lovesac has been great to us as far as swapping out back cushions when we have had a few sag and fixing any other issue we have run across. The functionality of the furniture can't be beat as we rearrange often. We have he chocolate rhinoplush and the taupe rhinoplush covers. None of which has caused us any issues. We have a dog and 3 year old that is constantly on these. Super easy to clean. We also use 4 of the bases as a guest bed when needed. This is not cheap furniture and the quality has improved greatly since we started buying the product. Lovesac fits our lifestyle. If your willing to pay the price you won't find much better. Maintain a good relationship with Lovesac and they will take care of you for the long run. I personally can't recommend the furniture enough. PM me if you need further information.
