Lovesac Review 2023 Update

The Lovesac Sactional is the most versatile couch I have ever owned. It is also the most durable. I bought my first Sactional back in July of 2013. Just recently I bought another back and seat to expand it as my family is growing. Although this furniture isn’t cheap, you definitely get what you pay for which is quality that will stand the test of time and kids.

How Much Does the Lovesac Cost?

A lot! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful, versatile couch and will last year and year but it to get a Lovesac you will want to lounge in for movie marathons will set you back at least $5,000. A delux setup will be easily over $15,000.  That’s why it’s so important to wait for a LoveSac sale and study the LoveSac warranty like the bible. Look, if you’re tired of Ikea furniture and want to upgrade to something more adult, this will last from when your kids are in diapers to when they are ready to take the keys to the minivan. So in this regard, the construction and warranty justify the lovesac cost.

Unboxing the Lovesac Sactional

After placing your order, your Sactional should arrive in a couple of weeks. Mine arrived in 8 days after ordering. You will get a tracking notification when it ships and an estimate of when it will be delivered. No need to be present on the delivery day either.

I ordered 1 back and one seat as I am expanding my existing Sactional. Here’s what that looks like in terms of packaging.  The big box is the base and the medium size box is the back and the small box is the cover.

How to Setup the Lovesac Sactional

If you have put together legos, then setting up your Sactional should be a breeze. The video below shows all the pieces needed to get started.

All the pieces come wrapped in plastic so they don’t get wet during delivery.

Sactional Cover

The back and seat cushion can be found tucked underneath the base as seen in the picture below.

Sactional Base cushions

The covers are easy to slip on. To secure them you just velcro them to the bottom. In the 4 years I have owned my sactional they have never come loose and are easy to detach if you want to wash them.

Sactional Side Attachment

The seat cushions are made with quality zippers that will hold up through multiple washes.

The next step is to connect the base to the back. You get the following pieces to do this. A metal collar that holds the pieces together at the middle as seen below.

Sactional Metal Connector

A wooden base connector where the feet of two different bases can attach to secure the bottom. If you have hardwood floors, there are some wool pads to put on the feet so that you don’t leave any scratches.

Here’s a look as I am setting up the sactional.

Sactional Setup

Here’s another picture of what it looks like all complete. The blanket in the photo is also a Lovesac blanket. These blankets are super soft, machine washable and even have a foot pocket to keep your feet cozy.

Completed Sactional

There are lots of ways to configure your sactional which is why it is so valuable. If you move frequently or just grow tired of your current configuration, you can switch up the look easily. Not only that but you can also buy different covers.

Below is a picture of some of the many configurations for a lovesac with 5 sides and 5 bases like mine. If you go to their website and choose the number of bases and sides you can get a configuration guide for your number of pieces.

Does the Lovesac Ever Go On Sale?

Absolutely! Just about every month you will find a Lovesac sale. If you are paying full price for a LoveSac, you are paying the sucker price.  The best time to buy a lovesace is Black Friday, Memorial Day or 4th of July. This is when you will find the best Lovesac prices. 

As much as you want it, there is no lovesac available at Costco. Costco does not sell the Lovesac. 

Lovesac Return Policy

Acording to the Lovesac website, you get 60 days to figure out if you want to keep your Lovesac. However you will not be reimbursed for any shipping or delivery fees. 

We believe in Total Comfort, and a big part of that is making sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. But if you’d like to make a return for any reason, you can return it by contacting Customer Love to coordinate your return authorization.

Custom merchandise, floor model, and clearance item sales are final, and returns cannot be issued. Any shipping and/or delivery fees are non-refundable. Gift Card purchases cannot be cancelled or returned. Merchandise is eligible for a one-time price adjustment within 14 days of the date ordered. Floor models and clearance merchandise are not eligible for price adjustment. Financing terms cannot be adjusted after a purchase is made. Proof of purchase is required for all returns, exchanges, warranties, and refunds. 


My Lovesac Sactional Recommendation

I have had my original sactional with 4 bases and 4 sides for over 4 years now and it has held up extremely well. I have configured it different ways many times in order to use it as a bed when guests come. Over time some of the legs have broken but I was able to get free replacement legs, no problem. Other than that the couch has held up perfectly after multiple washes and kids climbing and jumping on it.

The Sactional is an investment as their entry-level configuration with 2 seats and 4 sides currently retail at $1,700 however this couch has held up longer than any other couch I have owned. We have bought Ikea couches and sectionals in the past but the fabric on them was not machine washable and faded quickly. I also found that the cushions on the Lovesac are of better quality and last much longer. If you have pets that climb on furniture this would make it worth it alone.

In 2021 Lovesac Introduced the StealthTech technology which adds Harmon Kardon speakers inside your Lovesac couch for the ultimate surround sound experience that you can feel and hear but not see. It’s a great way to get surround sound without ugly speakers and wires everywhere. Check out this Stealth Tech video below
