How to Self-Assemble a Flat Pack Sofa in 7 Easy Steps

Need to spruce up your living room? Our sofas and armchairs are just the trick! With seven stunning colour options available, from bold green velvet to classic grey linen, you can create a matching set or simply include an accent piece to your existing home decor. The challenge of finding the perfect sofa or accent chair is often the biggest hurdle in making your interior design dreams come true.

At Swyft, we wanted to make that decision as easy as possible. So, we created what we believe is the future of furniture design. Our sofas are super comfortable, have a beautiful modern design, are stain-resistant and easy to clean, delivered quickly and can fit into any space as they are flat packed into 2-3, easy to lift boxes.

Keep reading to learn all you need to know about flat pack sofas and how to assemble them yourself at home.

What are Flat Pack Sofas?

When it comes to buying a sofa, many people worry about whether it’ll fit through the door, how they’ll get it up the stairs (none of us wants to experience a Ross from Friends ‘pivot’ moment), the outrageously long wait times and how difficult it’ll be to assembly. Enter flat pack sofas! Essentially a sofa in a box, flat pack sofas are innovative, space-saving and guaranteed to fit in any room.

Here at Swyft we specialise in flat-pack sofas and have made it our mission to make buying sofas a fun, easy and hassle-free experience. Delivered to your door in 24 hours, you can choose a sofa today and lounge on it tomorrow! Our sofas arrive in a series of light boxes that are easy to lift and will fit through even the tightest of entranceways. The 3 and 2 seater sofas are shipped in 3 boxes while the flat-pack armchairs are shipped in 2 boxes.

What are Self-Assembly Sofas?

Self-assembly sofas are sofas that you can put together yourself easily at home, meaning you won’t need to struggle getting a bulky sofa through a door, up some stairs or around corners. The flat pack sofas will come in a series of boxes which you can easily carry through to the room you want the sofa to be in, then all you need to do is follow the instructions and build your own sofa.

All Swyft sofas are self-assembly and feature a Swyft-Lok fastening technology for a quick and easy installation. Our Model 03 Modular sofas, however, don’t lock together and are instead kept separate so you have extra flexibility of movement.

How to Assemble a Flat Pack Sofa

It’s incredibly easy to put our sofas and armchairs together. You can do it completely by yourself in minutes! No tools are required...not even a hammer so it’s ideal for those moving out for the first time.

  1. First, open each box in order (all of the boxes are labelled clearly to make it as simple as possible). Each set of components has been carefully packed with sustainable and protective materials. We believe in being eco-friendly so all the packaging is biodegradable.
  2. Screw the four legs into the base of the sofa.
  3. Turn over the base to reveal the Swyft-Lok clips and slide in the back until you hear the satisfying ‘click’ sound.
  4. Slide the arms into place and again push until you hear them click.
  5. Place the seat cushions on top of the base.
  6. Add the back cushions.
  7. Sit back, relax and enjoy your new Swyft sofa or armchair!

How to Assemble Modular Sofas

For our Modular sofas, as there is no locking in place required all you have to do is place the modules where you want them to create your sofa. We’ve designed a unique foot for these sofas to ensure that our modules don’t move about. The rubber on the foot creates a form of suction when pressure is applied so if you have wooden or laminate flooring you won’t need to worry about your sofa sliding around or separating.

Our Modular sofas are ideal for those with a small space and need extra flexibility to play around with. It’s also great as you can purchase as many modules as you need to create corner sofas or chaise sofas with ottomans to provide a comfortable footrest or more seating options if needed.

Take a look at our stylish and contemporary flat-pack sofas in our Model 01, Model 02 and Model 03 range to find your perfect sofa.
