If you follow me on twitter (no? Let’s fix that!), you might have seen me gabbing on about a furniture company a few weeks ago called Lovesac. The folks at Lovesac invited me to their Moving Day promotion kickoff in Boston to take a peek at Lovesac SACTIONALS. What’s a sactional, you ask? In a nutshell, it’s an incredible versatile lightweight couch that you can re-arrange so easily. Great for college students who move on the regular, but, you know what, equally great for families.
Great for families for a lot of reasons actually. Let me tell you why.
- Easy to Add New Sections.
The sactional can grow with your family. It’s easy to order another section that matches.
All sactionals come with WASHABLE slip covers. Apple juice spill on the middle of the couch? No problem. Pop them off, wash them, and put them back on. Super easy! Want to change the look of your house? No need to invest in another couch or deal with the hassle of getting rid of the old one. Just order new slipcovers and POOF!, you have a new look for a fraction of the cost.
- Lightweight and Easily Movable
The individual pieces of the sactional are very lightweight. At the event, I saw an entire couch carried down a circular set of stairs and put together in under 10 minutes. I could easily lift each piece with no problem. This could be so wonderful for families. Need to move it to different room, no problem. How about movie nights on the lawn? Forget those uncomfy lawn chairs, take the couch out! Also…BEST FORT BUILDING EVER!
Sactionals are guaranteed for life. Seriously! Lovesacs are not inexpensive, but they are very much an investment in a piece of furniture that can grow with your family.
In addition to sactionals, Lovesac also has other cool products including the original lovesac (think really awesome beanbag) and a blanket called a footsac. I left the event with a footsac like this one to try.
I’m now a big fan of these footsacs. In fact, they are already on my Christmas list to give to friends and family. So soft, just heavy enough to feel absolutely luxurious, and the foot pocket is ingenious. No more blankets slipping off your feet!
Lovesac also has a great founding story. We got little bits of it at the event from the Founder Shawny D. Nelson who made the first lovesac in 1995 as a teenager. Watch this video for the story.
Stop by Lovesac’s retail locations to check out the sactional in person.
Disclosure: I attended an event to learn more about Lovesac and their sactionals and left with a footsac blanket to try. All opinions (and warm, cozy feelings) are my own.
