Our Verdict

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).

• Not much info on comfort for "The Sofa"
• "The Sectional" Info: The cushions are made of two layers of foam meant to minimize sagging and softening of cushions over time. The bottom layer is firmer and provides more structure, while the top layer is lower density resulting in a sit that allows you to sink in while providing ample support.

• 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.


"The Sectional" is designed to be modular and grow with you over time. You can start small and then add on or rearrange whenever needed.

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

• "The Sofa" frame can be in wood or upholstered
• Can add a chaise to "The Sofa"
• Can add a modular table, more seats, an ottoman, throw pillows, to "The Sectional"

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