How to know when it’s time for a new sofa

That beat-up fabric sofa followed you from your parent’s place to your first place. Then it made the cut when you moved in with a partner. But now your sofa isn’t ain’t it anymore. 

Your sofa is usually one of the first pieces of furniture people see when they enter your home. It sets the tone for your fresh, modern style. But how can your living room feel alive when the couch should have been put to rest a few years ago? 

Maybe the sofa has been overlooked for the past few years, making do in the meantime. But believe us when we tell you that nothing beats getting that new couch smell and comfort that sets the scene for your home. 

If you’re feeling seen… it’s might be time to say ‘out with the old, in with the new sofa’.

Your sofa has creak that isn’t cute

Your living room couch should be a wonderful place to put your feet up and relax, not to very slowly sink into with the fear that it might collapse at any moment. Trying to relax carefully is one big red flag that it’s time to retire the lounge. 

If your sofa is made using outdated tech like hinges and screws it’s probably ancient. The question isn’t can you repair a leather couch, but rather: is it worth it? Since the cost of repairing structural damage is usually higher than just buying a new sofa, the best course of action is to replace it. And better yet, replace it with a screw-free sofa that will never creak in the first place. 

Our sofas (like all Koala products!) are assembled tool-free so you’ll never have a stray screw again. Never compromising on comfort, our Lounging Sofa is the most snuggleable, nappable, sink-in-able fabric sofa you’ll ever own. Plus if you can’t handle one more squeak or creak, we can have this sofa ready for you to lounge on in just 4 hours in most metro areas. 

There’s a smell that you can’t out-spray

Unless your old couch has been wrapped in plastic, it probably has an aura that everyone is too polite to tell you about. You could try to spray the smell away or start regularly vacuuming to buy you some time, but that stubborn stink will eventually win. 

If you’ve been busy Googling “how to clean a fabric lounge”, “best way to clean a leather couch” or “best Dyson attachment for pet hair on couch” – safe to say you might be in the market for a new sofa. 

Before you go searching for “Facebook Marketplace sofa”, consider the benefits of investing in a brand-spanking, life-proof design. Our Getaway Sofa is upholstered in exclusive Koala fabric that’s built to last. Plus, our lovely Choppy Waves and Penguin Parade fabrics take it a step further, boasting strain-resistance that can handle whatever life throws at them
