Which Koala sofa is right for you?

Sofas are never just sofas. They’re where you want to face plant after a long day, snuggle your SO (or fur baby), binge watch Netflix, hang with your mates or offer a friend a place to crash.

From sofas that move with you to statement pieces, the Koala Sofa Range is jam-packed with beautiful and comfy sofas designed for the Aussie lifestyle.

With heaps on offer in different sizes and different colours, the hardest choice ahead is deciding which one is right for you?

We’ve broken down our sofas so you can find your perfect match.

Koala Lounging Sofa: Australia’s #1 rated sofa

Koala Lounging Sofa in Icy Pole

Our first love in the sofa world, our Lounging Sofa was made with the same approach to our mattresses; a timeless design made for real living rooms (not showrooms), keeping the environment in mind, and ridiculously comfy.

Designed for those laid back Aussie arvos, our Lounging Sofa is built durably, easy to assemble and disassemble, and is reasonably priced. The outer fabric is scratch- and stain-resistant and easy to clean but oh-so-soft to touch.

Available in a 3-seater or 2-seater option with ottoman, the Lounging Sofa is now available in four colours: Brushtail Grey, Bonnie Doon Blue and our newest additions Grey Nurse and Icy Pole.

The Getaway Sofa: Our most comfortable yet

Koala Getaway Sofa in Penguin Parade

The best seat in the house, our Getaway Sofa combines all things you could ever want in a sofa.

Storage? Check.

Stain-resistant fabric? Check.

Comfortable? Biggest Check of all ✅ 

The family-proof fabric is stain-resistant and made from recycled fibres. It’s tough as nails but ridiculously soft to touch.

We’ve got storage sorted, with two generously sized timber drawers to give you that extra toy basket or linen closet, without taking up extra space.

The Getaway Sofa is made for families, featuring oversized covers that create a relaxed, wrinkled effect over time and feather-like microfibre fill that sits heavy so you can sit pretty for hours on end. 

Don’t forget to check out the Getaway Luxe edition: Made with luxury in mind, enjoy cloud-like comfort, solid ash timber draws and premium linen.

Available in a 3-seater or 2-seater option, the Getaway Sofa is now available in two colours: Penguin Parade and Choppy Waves

Koala Modern Sofa: great for growing and going with you

Koala Modern Sofa in Blue Heeler

It’s clear that people want two things: options, and to put their feet up. Our answer? The best-selling Koala Modern Sofa. It’s not only our first chaise lounge—it’s also our very first modular sofa. If you ask, we deliver. 

Modular sofas are great for adapting with you as you change spaces or grow in numbers throughout life.

As we expand and grow into our ideal homes it makes sense to have a sofa that can grow with us and fit within our lives as we live them.

The modular nature of this sofa gives the freedom to configure it to suit your needs so you can stretch out or curl up with your partner, kids, friends, family and fur-babies.


But we did more than create a versatile furniture piece—when applying Koala principles to a modular design, we wound up reimagining the tired modular formula altogether.

The modern is soft and cushy with a classic, sturdy silhouette, can be delivered in four hours, and has a quality designer aesthetic without the modular’s usual hefty price tag.

There’s three colours to choose from that go with everything, and the beauty of this style is that even with fixed modulars, you’ll get extra seating capacity and can make use of wasted corners. 

The Modern Sofa comes in three colourways: Arvo Storm, Hawky and our newly released colour, Blue Heeler.

The Compact Sofa: for contemporary apartments

Speaking of tight spaces, the Compact Sofa is your go-to for contemporary, urban, apartment living, but also fab for granny flats or additions. Read: this is the three-seater that’ll fit in a studio.

It’s designed around the ethos that a small space doesn’t need to lack style or comfort, a philosophy that shouldn’t be rocket science. Yet somehow, finding sofas for compact homes where style is not an afterthought has been tough (until now, obviously).

Sleek and minimal with super soft upholstery, ergonomic comfort and timber feet, the compact sofa comes in a creamy tan (Trusty Willow) and warm-washed charcoal grey (Tucker Bag). 

The Coastal Sofa: for those who know lounging is serious business

Koala Coastal Sofa in Nomad

This sofa is inspired by the salty sea spray of Byron Bay. Comfy as sin and easy on the eye, once you’re in, you won’t want to leave your soothing spot. 

The proportions have been pulled low, deep and wide to ensure that whatever position you sit in is the right position to stretch out and sink in.


In three quintessentially beachy colours (billabong blue, milk-bar white and now, sandy Nomad) and with a beaut matching armchair and ottoman, the Coastal Sofa set practically begs you to get down low and take it slow.

Functionally speaking, all our sofas—which range from 1 to 4.5-seaters—will easily make it to any living room of any home as they’ve been built to navigate tight turns, low doors and narrow stairways. Once inside, you won’t need any tools for assembly or disassembly and you’ll get a 120-night trial and a 5-year warranty. Plus, they’re FSC® and CertiPUR-US certified.

The Cork Sofa: for those who don’t want to trade style for sustainability

The perfect couch for wine lovers and animal lovers alike, the cork sofa will pave the way for leather alternatives as Aussies look to more sustainable homeware options.

The Cork Sofa features a timeless design with sophisticated finishes and the natural, textural look of the cork material, so you can enjoy the finer things in life without the guilt. Using only animal-free and eco-friendly dyes and coating materials, the Cork Sofa is available in two colourways—Yarra Cork and Jenolan Black—to suit all tastes and spaces.

And the best part? Like all Koala products, all of our sofas comes with fast and flexible delivery, and our risk-free 120-night trial. With every Koala sofa you buy, you also make a symbolic turtle adoption through Koala’s partnership with WWF-Australia.

It’s all a bit of a sofa dream with enough options to suit everyone and every home.
