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).

Other Options:

Lovesac makes it possible for you to customize different parts of the sofa including:

• Upholstery
• Arm Style
• Cushion comfort
• Configuration
• With or without a storage unit
• With or without a speaker immersive sound and charge system


• 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.

Offer 3 types of cushion filling:

• Standard Foam high density foam (no extra cost)
• Lovesoft - synthetic fiber (extra cost)
• Down Blend - duck feathers and down mix (extra cost)


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.

Their sofas are expandable, rearrangeable, moveable, and changeable.
