Perfect couch for our home
We got the black colour, which looks great. It’s the perfect couch for our dog and wine loving home. Super easy to clean. Surprisingly comfy too! Best couch we’ve had.
Purchased in June 2021.
Glad we took the plunge!
I'd been umming and ahhing about the prospect of trying the Cork Sofa, but the EOFY sale gave me the incentive I needed to take the plunge.
As much as I loved our existing aniline leather couch, I was finding it was not the best choice for a household with young children. I wanted to find something with more stain resistance and durability so I didn't have to be so precious about the kids being kids! The thought of a fabric sofa was not really appealing, so I was interested when I stumbled across the Cork Sofa. It seemed to tick all my boxes, ...with the added appeal of its sustainable origins. It was delivered as per the estimated delivery date, and I could manage the assembly myself, with some "help" from the anklebiters. (Bonus for the kids is the entertainment provided by the empty boxes!) I'm very pleased with the overall style of the sofa. I've found the fabric to strike the right balance between being unique but not being too showy or sticking out in the room. The nature of the fabric (we have the Yarra colour) is such that some of the 'flecks' catch the light, giving the effect of a subtle glimmer that gives the fabric a pleasing depth and prevents it from having a totally matte finish. No complaints on the comfort level either, initial impressions are that it will be comfortable and supportive, and the dimensions are generous. I'm pleased that we opted to get the matching ottoman to increase the loungeability!

Questions & Answers
Hi there, just wondering how durable the cork material is to withstand scratches from pets? We have a kitten who absolutely loves scratching our fabric sofa and am wondering whether the cork sofa would be a better choice? Thanks.
Great question - thanks for asking!
While our Cork Sofa is probably a better choice than a fabric sofa for kittens who love scratching, no material will quite stand up to being a kitten’s scratching post!
We've made it super durable to withstand day-to-day wear and tear and although it doesn’t have threads for your fur baby to pull out, the surface can be damaged from little kitten nails and paws!
If you like, we’d love to send you some swatches so you can get a feel for the material? Just give us a buzz on 1800 575 337 or pop an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org and our awesome Customer Care squad will hook you up :)
