I bought my 3 seater koala sofa at least 5 years ago and would love to change the covers as they are getting tired and piling. The website says the covers aren’t suitable for couches purchased before 2023.

G'day kateh123, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you here!

That's right, unfortunately the removable covers aren't compatible with Lounging Sofas purchased before 2023. This is because to make the covers removable, we had to make some adjustments to the sofa itself, so the sofas purchased in 2023 are a different version to the ones previously available.

We want you to love your sofa for years to come though, so feel free to reach out to our support team on 1800 575 337 or at support@koala.com to see whether there's anything we can do to help :)

Is it still possible to purchase a 2 seater in Woollomooloo colour for Koala Lounging Sofa

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Happy, Great question!

As much as we wish we could, we cant do custom colours or swap the fabrics from different products :(

The closest colour to Woolomooloo in the Lounging Sofa would be Winter Sky, although it's a little more grey than blue. Alternatively, our Modern Sofa comes in Blue Heeler which is similar to the Woolomooloo fabric on our dining chairs. We've popped a link below so you can take a peek!

We'd love to give you a hand to find your perfect sofa, and our team are here to help! Just give us a buzz on 1800 575 337 or pop an email over to support@koala.com so we can help get you comfy as can be :)

Is the lounging sofa a sofa bed?

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Lory, While the Lounging Sofa is a top notch sofa, it's not a sofa bed!

You want to check out our Sofa Bed, Cushy Sofa Bed and Stunner Sofa Bed instead, which we've linked below :)

Has anyone had any luck finding a couch cover for this model? All of the covers I have found online are a touch too small

Jason H.
Jason H. · Lounging Sofa

My cat (unfortunately) has taken a shine to the couch as well so I’m looking for something to protect it. Do you know of anyone who makes a cover to suit your 2 or 3 seater fold out couches?
(Have tried another but the fit is a bit off)
Cheers,
Jason

G’day Jason, We have another cat lover in the Koala treehouse who faced the same issue recently! They recommended a product from Pawezy (link below) to help protect your sofas from your cat’s claws.

Elle · Lounging Sofa

Hi, We're happy with the feel of our Koala lounging sofa (bought about 3 years ago); however the fabric has pilled a lot. Is there anywhere we can buy a slipcover or replacement cover? Or can you provide the specs so I might be able to have something made? Thanks

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Elle, We're stoked to hear you're loving your sofa, but let's see if we can do something about that pilling!

Pilling is natural and it's nothing to worry about, but it can take away from that schmick look of the sofa, can't it?

Luckily, we've got a couple of tips to help remove and reduce pilling:
- Vacuum your sofa once a week or so, using low suction to help remove dirt and cheeky fibres that like to mingle with each other to cause pilling
- Use a fabric shaver on the sofa every now and then to remove any pilling that's occurring and reduce the risk of more

If those tips aren't quite doing the trick, we're here to help! We just need a little more info so we can see how we can help or give you the specs you need. Just give our Customer Care legends a buzz on 1800 575 337, pop an email over to support@koala.com or hit the 'Chat' button on this page to be connected with the team - we can't wait to hear from you soon!

I'd like to know if anyone has had success washing the covers or getting a replacement?
I had a very sick child who got diarrhoea on the cover and I've had to wash it.
Just washing it now but would be willing to buy another cover if it is damaged

Koala   DM   

G'day aquitaine84, Oh dear, we hope your little joey is ok!

Your covers should be fine in the wash, but if not never fear - we're here to help and we're keen to make sure your sofa's in tip-top condition!

Are there any people who have owned the koala sofa for over 6 months? How does it hold up after a while? Does it start to get uncomfortable and droop in the middle?

My koala sofa started to Pill about 1 years after we bought it. The fabric is not as hard wearing as I thought it would be. I wish there were replacement covers you could get for it

Have had mine for almost two years unfortunately it does not stand the test of time. I constantly have to pull it at each side after sitting on it to make it look smooth. After only two years I'm considering buying a new lounge as I can't stand having to pull it into place after every use, would have expected a few more years at least.

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Nat, This doesn't sound right to us - at just a few years old your sofa should be keeping you comfy as can be and we're here to help!

You're covered by our 5 year warranty and we don't want to leave you with a sofa you just don't love. We're keen to chat and see how we can help, so we'd love it if you could please give our Customer Care legends a buzz on 1800 575 337 or shoot an email over to support@koala.com so we can get this sorted for you :)

Hi,

I'm contemplating purchasing a sofa (not sure which model yet), and I was curious as to whether the materials used are durable enough for cats who like to scratch

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Tom, Great question! We think long and hard about how our sofas can best fit into real lives and homes, to make your home purr-fectly comfy for your whole family - including fur babies.

While our sofa fabrics are durable and pretty resilient, none can can quite compete with a scratching post. We've called in the experts though (our product managers) who agreed that our brand new Cork Sofa would be the best bet! It's our version of a leather sofa, giving you long-lasting durability - but without nasties (like the chemicals often used in leather products) and peace of mind since it's super sustainable! Excuse the pun, but it's an absolute corker and you can read more here: external link

What better way to find out if you love it than by trying it in your own home? If you or any of your family members (again, fur babies included) don't find it the comfiest fit, you can simply return it within 120 nights, no questions asked :)

We hope this is helpful, but if you have any other questions we'd love to chat - so give us a call on 1800 575 337, or drop us a line at support@koala.com

Hi there

Reviews mention removing the covers for washing - is that machine wash ?

Emma.h
Emma.h · Lounging Sofa 3-Seater (2020)

Hi, I have purchased the 3 seater and 2 seater sofas. The firmness of the base cushion of the two are quite different however - the 3 seater is noticeably softer than the 2 seater and the material on the cushion is not as taut and 'gathers' a little bit. Is this expected?

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Emma, Thank you so much for reaching out to us and we would love to help! Our product design team is really interested in this feedback and we'd love to look into what you're finding. If you can please reach out to our customer care squad on 1800 575 337 or email us at support@koala.com, they'll be glad to find a way to make this better for you :)

Is there anyway to make sure the main seat cushion doesn’t keep sliding forwards during use. We are constantly having to push it back into place

Jebus Jones
Jebus Jones  

Mine came with a Velcro strip along the majority of the front base and I've never had it slip at all.

Jack M.
Jack M.  

Hmmm, just checked and no Velcro strip

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Jack, We can't have your chance to sit down and relax is getting interrupted. So sorry to hear this and we'd love to help get if sorted for you! After all, sofa's are supposed to be far more comfy than a slippery dip.

The velcro Jebus mentioned above should be on your sofa too (thanks for the tip Jebus!). It ought to be right at the front of the sofa base and cushion. It can be easy to miss as it’s got a protective cover on it that's the same colour as the sofa itself! If you remove the protective cover it’ll stay nicely in place :) Please let us know if you can't spot the velcro? Our customer care team is also here if you get stuck or want to chat it through over the phone as you go, just call 1800 575 337 or email us at support@koala.com. We're here to help!

I have this issue too, when the sofa is folded up into a seat, the whole middle section (where you sit and rest your back) starts to slip and constantly needs to be readjusted, were you able to find a fix for this?

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Katie, Sorry to hear you're having this same issue and we'd love to get this sorted for you!

We've found that if you remove the seat and pop it back in place, but this time leaving about a hands-width gap between the seat (or mattress) and the back of he sofa, this gives the seat more support and will keep it in place - no need for readjusting!

Give that a go and if it doesn't do the trick, give our Customer Care legends a buzz on 1800 575 337 or pop an email over to support@koala and they'll be happy to give you a hand :)

Open the zip and turn the last cushion over, it flips the back rest so it’s more upright

Fer
Fer · Lounging Sofa

Is the sofa supported enough in the back for tall people? Everyone here is at least six feet tall. I would like to think the person’s shoulders would be supported, but the frame looks a little low.

Koala
Koala   DM   

G’day Fer, Thanks so much for reach out on behalf of all our tall friends! Good question :) The sofa in fact sits 82cm high and accounts for the comfiness of those who are at the longer end of the spectrum. We've chatted with our product team and they’ve advised that the design is a standard height. Then we also put it to the test with one of the tallest Koalas in the Treehouse, who said he’d never had any worries and all the support he needs.

If there is anything else we can help you with, our customer care team is here for you if you’d like to call us on 1800 575 337 or email support@koala.com :)

Kagan R. · Lounging Sofa

Is it possible to use the lounging couch without arms attached? I’d like to use a 2 and 3 seater to make corner couch

Koala
Koala   DM   

G'day Kagan, We just love the way you think! Great question. Sorry to say that we don't have a sofa (so fa-r) that'll do the trick. We had a chat with our product development team for you though mate, and while the arms of the two and three seaters are needed to stabilise the whole frame and make sure the bolts don't buckle... Our motto is the more the merrier too, so here's hoping one day we'll create your comfiest corner yet :)

The Koala Dream Team

P.S. While we can't corner-couch we can vouch, for our sofa's good pal the Ottoman and it'll be happy to help you out with a little extra leg room :)

The cushions themselves don't Velcro, but they also don't move. They're quite heavy and seem to stay in place without interference.

Can you please tell me what the wait time is if I order the 4.5 seater with Ottoman Modern Sofa ?
Also your photo appears to be grey however the sample dot appears to be cream. Can you clarify this for me as well.
Thank you

Koala
Koala   DM   

Hi Colette, It depends on which state you are located. As you go though to purchase process it will advise when you can have your Modern Sofa delivered. This product has sold so well our stock levels are low so to get a sooner delivery time we advise you get in ASAP.

Hi. I have a dog who constantly sheds. I have to vacuum almost daily! I was wondering if the fabric is pet friendly? Will dog hair get stuck on it? And is the hair easily swept away? Thanks.

Koala
Koala   DM   

Hi Kevin Our fabric is very durable for everyday use and having some loveable pet friends, however like any fabric it will still need to be maintained because unfortunately pet hair could still get trapped between the fibres. Pet hair is easily removed with a lint brush and vacuum cleaning.

If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to reach out to support@koala.com

I have a cat that likes to urinate on lounges, which is why I'm in the market for a new one. If he does it again, do you sell individual components of your lounges, so that any parts he ruins can be replaced (rather than the whole lounge).
