Remember the days when ordering a new sofa meant a 6 week wait? And when that said 6 week wait, was wracked with anxiety over whether the sofa would fit through the front door?!
Well, things have changed a lot since then!
This week, I took delivery of a brand-new sofa (in a box!), delivered to my front door, less than three days after ordering.
Snug are the Sofa in a Box Company, specialising in high quality, easy to assemble sofas, that get delivered quick. They are perfect for delivery to homes with tight spaces, as there’s no trying to squeeze a fully built sofa through tight doorways or through narrow staircases.
This week, we were sent a new sofa design from Snug’s latest collection – The Big Chill, in Blush Coral. The new sofa design features a wider, more modern arm, than its predecessor, The Rebel Collection, as well as straight metal legs.
My first impressions were that it’s incredibly easy to build. I knew from the website that it was going to be easy, but how easy it really is surprised me!
I had the sofa out of the box and fully assembled in less than 10 minutes. I didn’t need to read the instructions and needed no help whatsoever. That means, 5 foot 6 me me is able to carry and build a 3 Seater Sofa, no questions asked. There are no tools required, with sections simply sliding together, firmly in place.
The fact that the sofa is so easy to assemble, did leave me with a few questions over how stable the design might be, but it’s rock solid and feels sturdier than our old, pre-assembled sofa. Here’s Elodie testing it out below as proof!
In terms of comfort and compared to our previous sofa, sitting on The Big Chill is like floating on a cloud. The sofa cushions are slightly on the firm side on first assembly, but 2 days in and they are beginning to soften a little, as you would expect.
As we’re in the middle of a heatwave, the sofa has been put through its paces earlier than expected! Last night, I spent the night sleeping on the sofa downstairs, rather than sleeping in our sweltering attic bedroom. I have to say, it was more comfortable than expected and felt more spacious than sofas I’ve slept on in the past (not that I make a habit of doing so!).
This is the first fabric sofa my husband I have owned and I only wish we’d made the jump from leather sooner. Leather sofas have a creaky, sticky (in this heat!) feel to them, whereas the Snug Sofa easy-care fabric feels really comfortable. So far so good on the keeping clean front and to be honest, I’ve heard so many people say how stain resistant their Snug Sofa is, that I’m not worried about this at all.
Snug sofas can be ordered in a variety of colours, including Navy Velvet, Forest Green Velvet and Rich Teal. Free fabric swatches can be ordered from their website and if you fancy popping into a shop for a closer inspection, they have showrooms in Enfield, Old Amersham, Walton-on-Thames, Wilmslow and Manchester.
