Our Design Philosophy
Designed for Life means so much more than building a product strong enough to withstand the test of time. Products must be Built to Last and Designed to Evolve so that they never go out of style and never become obsolete.
We estimate that for every sactionals setup you adopt into your life,
You're Saving 4 Couches From a Landfill*
Creating a Designed-for-Life product is a difficult thing to achieve and we understand that it will take some time to truly live up to it. But we work every day to ensure that we’re taking the right steps towards achieving this design philosophy. From the raw materials we use to our packaging and shipping practices, we’re committed to the responsible consumption of resources and working with partners that share our same vision.
*Calculated based on the average purchase rate of couches and their expected lifespan.
In addition to saving 4 couches from a landfill, Sactionals use upholstery fabric made from 100% Repreve certified recycled yarns.
In 2019, we estimate Sactionals will remove 30+ million plastic bottles from the waste stream. Here's how:
Post-consumer bottles are collected and cleaned
Repreve Flake & Chip
Bottles are chopped into flake that is melted into chip
Chip is spun into yarn that is woven to make Sactionals upholstery fabric

Sactionals were designed and packaged to maximize shipping efficiency. Recycled kraft cardboard is used to lessen the use of bleaches and dyes, further reducing our total environmental impact.
Built to Last
Buying furniture is a major investment. Rather than trying to sell you as many couches as we can throughout your life, we build our products to be with you for the rest of it. And to us, that means so much more than just durability. When you purchase Sactionals, we make sure it’s the last couch you’ll ever need to buy.
The ability to add features after purchase is the key to extending a product’s lifespan.
Rather than creating a product, we built a product platform. Sactionals Seats and Sides were developed using our proprietary Geometric Modular System, giving them dimensional relationship so they can be easily rearranged and added on to at any time.
Create a more classic look with Roll Arm Sides, add a curve to your couch with a Wedge Seat, or accommodate house guests with a Guest Rest Bedding Kit. That’s the beauty of Sactionals, you’re never tied to one look, style, or usage – your couch can be upgraded to meet your changing needs.
If an item can’t be maintained, it’s likely to meet its demise much sooner than it should.
From the outset, Sactionals were intentionally designed so that, should wear and tear occur, specific pieces can be replaced or maintained. You’ll never need to buy a brand-new couch. It’s this design methodology that sets us apart.
Sactionals Inserts are thoughtfully engineered with standardized parts and replaceable components to make restoring and repairing easy. Because of this, most Covers are machine washable. And if something should happen that’s beyond repair, each piece or Cover can be individually replaced, extending the life of your couch.
Products that are truly Designed for Life should come with a guarantee to back it up.
We practice what we preach and we want our customers to know it. It’s important that we establish and cultivate long-lasting relationships based on quality and trust. In order to accomplish this, we set the bar high for manufacturing and quality control.
We guarantee that Sactionals hard Inserts can last a lifetime. But if our manufacturing practices don’t live up to that promise, we’ll work to replace those hard Insert pieces at no cost to you. We want you to be completely satisfied with your Sactionals.
Designed to Evolve
Your life is always evolving – your desires, tastes, and circumstances change over time. Doesn’t it make sense that your furniture adapts to those changes? You should never have to toss your old couch because it doesn’t fit size or style, or because it fell behind the times technologically. Your couch should evolve with you.
You should be able to change your furniture with the seasons, your taste, or just because.
We understand that styles and times change, and we believe that your couch should be able to change right alongside. That’s why we developed our Covers to be easily swapped out. And not just for the cushions or pillows, for the entire couch.
Because Covers are fully changeable, you never have to be married to one style. Changeable Covers have additional benefits too – like being machine-washable and easy to replace should one become damaged, extending the life, and look, of your couch.
The living room serves so many purposes. Our furniture should be able to meet every need.
With its Geometric Modularity and Segmented Bi-Coupling Technology, Sactionals were designed with the ability to reconfigure to any new shape and fit together perfectly – without tools. Our Shoes and Clamps keep everything held together tightly and securely.
Sactionals truly are the only couch that’s “one size fits all.” You can go from a loveseat to a Movie Lounger, to a multi-piece sectional that lines your entire wall. Moving to a new space also becomes a lot less challenging.
Your furniture should be able to upsize, downsize, and customize along the way.
Families grow, children leave for college, and people move. That’s why we built Sactionals to adapt and expand with you. With our patented interlocking design, it’s easy to add Seats and Sides as you need.
You can start with a two-seater sofa. Then later on down the line when your needs change, just add a few more Seats and Sides to turn that two-seater couch into a configuration that fits everyone in your family – and then some.
Whether it’s one room to the next, or to a new home, your furniture should be easy to move.
We know the pain that comes with moving a couch, especially when there are stairs and tight turns involved. That’s why we designed Sactionals to come apart into easy-to-move individual pieces.
Tight stair cases, cramped elevators, and the trunk of a compact car are no match for Sactionals. No matter what your move throws your way, or how many of your friends bail, you’ll be able to break down your couch, transport it, and set it up easily and without tools.
