Picture the scene: you have spent weeks picking the perfect sofa, you've ordered swatch after swatch to find the right fabric, you've marked with tape exactly where it will go, you've bought cushions, rearranged the living room, planned the set up of next year's Christmas cards – you've based your future around this sofa. Delivery day arrives and... in one fell swoop, your hopes and dreams are shattered when you realise that your new beloved sofa isn't going to fit through the door, or up the stairs. Life over.
Maybe a tad dramatic, but it is a familiar scenario for all us small-door, thin-hallway flat dwellers. But, thank God, someone has clocked that while the whole 'pivotttt!' thing is hilarious on TV, in reality, it totally sucks. But fear not, new furniture brand Swyft are here to save the day with their flat-packed, no tools needed, one-person job, delivered in just 48 hours, sofa in a box.
Keep scrolling for more of the low down on this cool new launch, and make sure you check out our round up of the best sofas too.
So how does the whole sofa in a box thing work? Well, it doesn't exactly take a genius to get to grips with the concept, but it means that instead of having a bulky piece of furniture delivered to your door, your new sofa comes in a slimline box that has no trouble getting through doors, down narrow corridors or up stairs.
The geniuses at Swyft have gone one step further, though, and not only do their sofas come in handy boxes, but they can also be assembled in minutes with no tools and by just one person. All it needs is old-fashioned gravity and friction.
And don't think that just because it comes in a box and can be delivered in just 48 hours this isn't a gorgeous, super comfy sofa. Swyft sofas are made with the highest quality fabrics and triple-layered cushioning and are backed up with a 15-year frame guarantee. Plus, you get a 100-day money back guarantee if you aren't happy with your new sofa (which we are sure you will be).
