I'll update his post with my experience, some pics and how they sit and wear over time.
As for where to put food and drinks, I bought 4 of the deep You-drinks that slide over the arm and 1 You-Table, all in Grey Ash. I'm also planning on building or commissioning a sofa table to go behind it. Something similar to the bars and the Stickley Gathering tables.
And, I'm going to explore installing some bass shakers in the seat bases.
Ok...time to update my posts now that I've got my Lovesac Sactional. I've attached pics of the process from start to finish. The Lovesac videos and instructions are great, and when they mention invite some friends....they mean it!
I enlisted the help of my 3 kids to get all the boxes from the garage, in the house and down to the basement. I would've gone around back, but it had been raining for days and I didn't want to track thru the wet grass/mud. Between the 4 of us, we were able to get all the boxes downstairs and in the main room outside of my theater room.
The sactional parts are very well packed and held up well during shipping. The only feedback I have is that they need a handle/hole if possible. They're a bit heavy and bulky.
I'll provide a description of the pics below, but overall I absolutely love my new Sactional over reclining theater chairs. I get to lean over, get under the blanket and hog the entire thing! Plus, it's great for the family to pile into. I can't wait to finish the rooms walls and get new carpet.
