Sharing My Review on Our LoveSac Sectional–what I like and what I don’t like
We were in need of replacing two of our sofas in our main family room. We decided instead of buying two new sofas to instead buy a large sectional. Our children are getting big and becoming young adults, so enough seating for the whole family was very important to me. I searched many sites to decided which sectional to go with. I came down to this sectional or this sectional. I love the style and the fabric choices. I wanted to go with a lighter fabric, but my husband said no way! No more white sofas! I don’t blame him though. We have four children and a dog that sheds. Our white sofas have been thrashed through the years. I have spend hundreds of dollar getting the sofas professionally cleaned, and hours with me spot cleaning. But at the same time I love the clean, bright look of a lighter sofa. You can match rugs and pillows much easier with them. They are perfect for seasonal decorations. We decided to get a Lovesac sectional because their fabric is washable. The sectional is definitely an expense, but really not much more than the other two sectionals I was looking at! I know buying any large piece of furniture is an investment, so I thought I’d do a Lovesac Sectional Review to help those make a decision and decide whether a sectional would be good for their family and home life.
LoveSac Sectional Review
I’ve been wanting to get a LoveSac sectional, or sactional as they call it, for many years. One of the things that I love is that it is modular, and you can move it around and configure the cushions so it works with your space and family lifestyle. I have been wanting to buy one for our basement. I love the idea of a family-home theatre room with a giant sactional. Well, the home we moved in actually already had a home theater room, so I put the idea of the sactional for our basement in the back of my head. When the need came up to replace our two large family room sofas (my boys did WWF wrestling on it and split the sofa in half (no joke)), I thought a sectional would be perfect for our space. We finally settled on a LoveSac with the covers in their Sky Grey Corded Velvet. For our set up we purchased 6 bases and 8 sides. One side of the sectional is a deep seat, which you definitely want! We didn’t think we would want a deep seat, but the traditional Lovesac seats are just not as deep as most other sofas. Once you get the back cushion on, it doesn’t leave enough leg room, so four of our cushions (bases) are deep seat. Then the other two are traditional seat. This was one negative aspect to the Lovesac is that the traditional seats aren’t deep enough. You almost have to purchase some of the seats as deep to make it really comfortable and to lounge. But if you get the deep seat, it sits great. The downside is that it is an extra charge!
The Lovesac is very comfortable to sit in. We purchased the traditional standard foam fill cushioning. While it is comfortable, I do wish it was just a little more cushiony and wasn’t quite as stiff. My husband agrees. But the Lovesac employee said it will become more comfortable the more you sit in it. I did want the structure of the sectional to hold up, so I wouldn’t have to fluff it every night. That is why I went with the standard foam fill. But if I was to reorder it again, I probably would purchase it in the down blend fill, which I hear is more comfortable and has the structure and the cushy seat. Either way if you opt for the standard foam fill, it is still really comfortable.
I love the Sky gray corded velvet fabric we choose. It has been so easy to clean up any marks! I haven’t cleaned the fabric yet, but I love that I can! I know having this capability to remove fabric to clean will keep this sectional looking new. Our dog loves to lay close to the sofa and his body rubs up and dirties up the bases of the sectional. That part is also removable, which is awesome!
So just to recap on my Lovesac Sectional Review:
- Love that it is modular and you can change the configurations! Perfect if we ever move to a different house
- Invest in the deep seat option! It is worth the extra cost. The traditional seat is just not deep enough.
- If you love cushy sofas, then consider purchasing it in the down fill cushion. Although the standard foam is still really comfortable, just more structure.
- Love at I can clean the removable fabric on my sactional by throwing it in the washing machine!
- I forgot to mention–putting the sectional together was quite a process! It arrived in many boxes. Definitely grab a friend or a family member to put it together. It’s a workout!
See how I put my Lovesac sectional together on my Instagram!
Loved this in depth review! It looks so comfy and I love that you can change the configurations up if needed.
It really is a great feature!
LoveSac Sectional is so comfy!! My brother in law it and it made me wish that’s where we got our sectional!
They are so comfortable!
It sounds so great, I love that the fabric is washable! I shy away from white couches (like your husband haha) but with a washable fabric I might need to get one!
It makes it must easier buying a lighter sofa with you can wash it.

Always a perk for larger investment pieces to have option of washable fabrics. Great review, thanks for sharing! xoxo, Sarah
Totally! That is what sold us.
I had no clue that LoveSac offered couches like this. That’s amazing! I only knew about their original, bean-bag design. How neat to have a modular sectional like this. It sounds really awesome and it looks amazing!
Yes! They are amazing and so versatile!
Yes it is so great! Love their modern style and practicality!
I like that you can put it in the washing machine! I have two dogs and they get my couch pretty dirty!
yes! it’s so great and that was the selling feature for me.
It looks so comfortable! I love the velvet! Great review!
Thanks Stephani! We love it.

This sectional looks great, I hope it works out for your family! That is awesome that it’s easy to clean, that’s a must!
Definitely a must!
I have been so intrigued by loveacs – thanks for the review!

Thanks for the review. They told us that you just rotate the seat to make it deep. Is that not the case?
Yes that is true, but you have to get a “deep seat” back cushion, because the seat will be a little bit shorter in width when you rotate it. Hope that makes sense!
We actually just ordered the same configuration and fabric! Love your coffee table. Where did you get it?
Hi Kellie! It’s sold out. :(. BUT here are similar styles:
I love it! We are considering ordering one soon. I see you posted this back in January. Now that you’ve had it for a while, do you still love it? Have you washed it yet? I am wondering how well it actually washes. Machine washable covers are what attracts us to this the most!
Hi Jen! Yes we still love it. It is holding up. I haven’t washed it yet, but have spot cleaned. We have a dog and he likes to lay his body right next to the sectional, so I like that I can wash the base part of the sectional. Will probably wash certain sections after summer. I like that I have that capability of washing a couple seats that are used the most, instead of the entire sectional.

I’m getting this couch and based on the swatch it seems to change color with different lights and angles. Sometimes looking more white than grey. What color are your walls?
It is a light gray for sure, which is one of the reasons we liked it but might now work for some. The walls are White Dove Benjamin Moore.
Can we not rotate just one seat to make it deep by purchasing the standard 6+8 ?
If you want to set it up as an L-shape sectional with deep seating, you will need at least 3-seats that are deep. Definitely check out their website virtual assistant to learn more.
I have a small TV room. I like the idea of an L shape configuration. Are there smaller sizes available?
Yes there is! Look at Lovesac website to see their different options.
I love the color of the corded velvet in sky grey. A Lovesac associate recommended the padded velvet since we have dogs. Are you concerned your dog’s nails could snag the corded velvet? I’m also concerned about that type of fabric pilling. What are your thoughts? Thanks
Hi Kristin! We don’t let our dog on our furniture, so we don’t have that problem. Also the corded velvet does not pill.
Thank you for this review! Do you mind me asking what kindof of dog/color he is? I have a dark brown colored hound so wondering how dog hair shows up on the couch. I have a swatch of the color and it doesn’t feel “velvet-y” like I thought it would (which is a good thing!). Do you also find this overall that its not velvety feeling?
He is a white-colored dog. I don’t let him on the sofa so we don’t have dog hair on it. It’s definitely not velvety!
You’re commenting on deep vs standard option, but I don’t see that on their virtual website. They only give the option to flip the seat to make it “deep”, but it doesn’t match up correctly when choosing all deep (and the pillows) are off. Did you have an option for deep or was it a matter of flipping the seat 90 degrees?
Apologies for the delay! Okay yes it is a matter of flipping the seat cushion BUT you need the the deep back pillow. I believe that is not an option online and you’d need to order the deep cushion set in the store or through their customer service number (that is how I ordered mine). Hope that makes sense!
