I constantly have so many questions on my sofa, so I figured having everything in one spot would be useful! and I appreciate you sending me your inquiries so that perhaps I won’t overlook anything you would find interesting!
interior define cushion fill
I really had another couch in mind when we visited the Interior Define store three years prior to purchasing the current couch. This couch was huge, and at first I thought, “Hey, that’s a pretty large couch, fantastic,” but after sitting on it, we soon discovered it was our favorite. The cutest baby, Arlo, also really enjoyed it. I never saw this sofa before the showroom, but since then, I’ve seen a lot of people on Instagram acquire it, so it’s not like I sparked the trend.

my thoughts after 3 years of living with our couch
interior define cushion fill Visually, I still adore the couch. Despite being current, it seems like it will never go out of style. size- and comfort-wise, as well. When the sofa arrived the first week, I must admit that I was a little anxious since I ordered a size too big, but once you get used to it, we might never go back. Nowadays, regular couches feel so small and claustrophobic.
interior define cushion fill The back-down cushions do require a lot of TLC to look good, but the fabric has held up well (I’ll go into more detail about cleaning care below). I enjoy how squishy they are now, but I’m not sure whether I would prefer foam. I’m rather pleased with the sofa overall, and I definitely suggest it!
What fills it?
The back cushions are down, while the bottom cushions are their regular foam.
is that a pet-, stain-, or child-friendly fabric?
interior define cushion fill It’s true that there were fewer stain-friendly fabric options available when we purchased our couch, but today there are a ton! Although we chose this light grey, my ideal hue would have been a softer beige. People frequently inquire about if I have a white sofa, but it’s actually more of a light gray, so I’m perplexed!
What are the exact dimensions?
120 across 72 at its deepest,
with a seat height of 17 and
a height of 32
have you removed covers to wash?
No, it really didn’t occur to me that you could for so long. They appear to be removable for cleaning and feature zippers!
how do you clean it?
interior define cushion fill In fact, I merely use a damp towel to wipe up little spills before fanning (spreading) the water out with the towel. If I omit this step, the water stain is generally obvious, which is incredibly tacky. I’ve tried using soap and mild cleansers, but everything appears to show, so I simply use water.
interior define cushion fill Although it was pricey and might not even remove deep stains, I’ve had it professionally cleaned. If the stains are severe enough, you may also simply have new cushion covers from Interior Define; the costs are about the same.
interior define cushion fill Honestly, it seems worth it to maybe invest in a machine like this and be able to do it much more frequently for the money you pay someone to clean couches and carpets. Although I don’t possess one, if you do, please let me know!
Does it pill?
interior define cushion fill Yeah, the cross weave is tightly woven, which helps to prevent pilling and snagging, but it still pills a little bit—I’ve definitely experienced worse. I occasionally use a fabric shaver, which actually helps a lot and is something you can do while watching TV, so it’s doable.
Does Gid like it since he’s tall?
Naturally, he likes the depth, but because of the lower profile, he stacks pillows behind him to support his head.

Does it feel comfortable without a pillow?
Would you want a higher back?
We can push ourselves up against cushions on ours, so it’s been OK despite the low back height. However, I’m not sure how comfortable it would be if your couch were farther away from the wall.
Do you enjoy how profound it is?
I adore it because, even while seated, I’m one of those people who always enjoy having their legs up, so this allows me to do that.
Are you okay without arm rests?
interior define cushion fill I don’t because I prefer being able to simply scoot or slither off either side of the sofa due to its depth. I don’t mind because I also never actually sit on the edges!
Is that truly two beds, or is it a couch?
Yes, well, two beds, to be exact. Who wouldn’t want mattresses strewn around their home?
Do the rear cushions go saggy? How frequently are the cushions fluffed?
Yes, no matter what, they are always lumpy once we sit on them. They require constant zhuzhedding in order to appear good. It’s unavoidable, of course, with down cushions this lengthy.
Although it’s a bothersome process, I don’t believe I would alter the cushions since, as I mentioned, I adore how comfortable they are.
Is it soft or firm?
Though I wouldn’t describe the bottom cushions as firm, they are firmer than the back cushions. They’re a lot more structured, although they’re still rather frothy.
Would you buy it again?
I think I would! I still really like the sofa and have no plans to swap it (just hopefully it fits in our future living room if we ever move)
How was your experience working with interior design?
That was really enjoyable. The experience in the showroom was excellent, and even Baby Arlo had a fantastic time. Though it took us hours to make a decision, the salesmen were really helpful and kind.
How long did it take to come?
The most difficult element took months to complete! I must have visited their website fifty times to track its progress, but when it did come, it was like Christmas morning.
Is it weird to sit on it since its so deep?
It definitely takes getting used to it. I love that I can plop down with my computer anywhere on the couch, and it’s like a big, giant surface for me to have my legs up on.
How do you get off of it?
You kind of have to crawl off if you’re in the middle and little like Arlo and I are, or you slide out to the edge and put your feet down.
Do they slide apart?
No, sorry! They keep together nicely because of the hardware on the underside.
know of any good dupes?
This is the closest I’ve seen, I would say! However, the wood foundation on this one gives it a similar appearance.
what would be your second choice for couch?
Although it’s been a while since I went sofa shopping, I’ve found you a few pretty beautiful options, some similar and others not!
what do you not like about it?
As I mentioned before, if they had offered more kid- and pet-friendly materials when we purchased our couch, I might have chosen a somewhat softer fabric with a lighter or more beige tone. Although the cross weave is a nice, typical-type cloth, it isn’t supple, in my opinion.
How frequently we need to fluff the back pillows is the only other concern. This is obviously a result of their length, but I don’t see how it could be fixed given how much I adore the way the long pillows are designed. Perhaps if the filling had been more of a down/foam hybrid?
How strong is the base?
feels quite robust. We’ve built many forts and jumped on them with the entire family, and everything appears to be working well!
Does Poppy complain about it?
Yes, he does, but what exactly is he not complaining about? He refers to it as the “sleep-inducing sofa,” but really, I’ve seen him nod off on every couch in the house, so I don’t really trust him!
To help you get a feel for the enormity, I also chose to share some pictures of the two of us sitting on the couch. It’s time to take a brief walk down memory lane!
On the day it came, I noticed that our house had suddenly become smaller. Hehe
Ok, sorry for the photo dump. So many memories on this sofa! I hope this helped sway you. Good luck couch shopping and let me know if you have any additional questions.
I truly like everything in my life to be enjoyable and attractive.
perhaps even you?
