CB2 vs. Inside Weather

Inside Weather


Our Verdict
2.5 / 5 STARS

Love them for their wide offering of both classics and trendy styles at a fairly reasonable price point. Expect long lead times and impersonal service but you’re buying the brand and the look you want.

Our Verdict
4 / 5 STARS

Design lovers and craftsmen rejoice—Inside Weather has the most custom product out there (probably too many options tbh). They seem to be the only brand actually producing in America and have impressive sustainability initiatives and materials across their catalog (e.g. The water bottle sofa).

Total # of Swatches: 25+ [not all fabrics available on all sofas.]

# of Upholstery Types: Fabrics, velvets, boucle, leather, etc, but only a few colors per type, hard to tell since there isn't a list showing all

Other Options:

Total # of Swatches: 110+

# of Upholstery Types: 20

Material Features:
• Performance
• Pet & Kid Friendly
• Liquid Repellent
• Commercial
• Oeko-Tex® Certified

Overall, a wide variety of color options and not just your typical grays/browns. Nice variety of textures as well.

Other Options:

Inside Weather allows you to customize most features of their sofas.

Bondi Collection:
• Upholstery
• Wood finishes
• Cushion comfort
• Configuration

Custom Sofa Collection:
• Upholstery
• Wood/metal finishes
• Pillow/cushion shape,
• Leg style
• Tufting
• Arm style
• Cushion comfort
• Configuration

They have by far the most customization out of all brands we've looked at, so if you want a ton of control, take a look at their options.


No comfort options. Materials used varies depending on sofa collection.

• Deluxe Memory Foam Blend - sink-in comfort
• Classic Plush Blend - firm yet cushy

Even though you can purchase either cushion type for both the Bondi Collection and the Custom Sofa Collection, the Bondi sofa cushions are 12 inches deep where as the Custom sofa cushions are 6 inches deep.
So we rank the Bondi as having more overall comfort because of it's above average depth.


"Build our own Sectional" tool - visual way to build your configuration so it's super clear what you can make based on the individual pieces you opt for

The chaise on sectionals can be put on either side so you can change it at any time and don't have to worry about choosing the side upon purchase.
Their Bondi Collection allows you to remove the arms or back panels to then turn say a 3-seater sofa into a 2-seater sofa with a chaise.

Special Features

• AR

• Removable cushion covers
• Pillows and cushions are reversible
• Air-mesh interior covers -- breathable material adding durability
• Throw pillows and bolsters available
