7 easy steps: How to assemble a flat pack sofa

7 easy steps: How to assemble a flat pack sofa

Whether you need a refresh to your sitting room or bedroom, our sofas and armchairs are just the trick. With seven colour options available, from green velvet to grey linen, you can create a matching set or simply an accent to your existing home décor.  The challenge of finding the perfect couch 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 think is the future of furniture design. Our sofas are super comfortable, have a beautiful modern design, are stain resistant, durable, delivered quickly and can fit into any space because they are flat packed into 2-3 boxes. There’s also the peace of mind that comes with a 100 day trial period.

It is so easy to put our sofas and armchairs together that you can do it by yourself in minutes, using one of the oldest forces in history – gravity. No tools are required… Not even a hammer.  Here’s how to build a Swyft armchair, two seater sofa, or three seater sofa (the only difference is the number of cushions that need to be smushed into place):

  1. Open each box in order (each box has a name 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 at each step of the process so all the packaging is biodegradable. Learn more in the footnote.*
  2. Screw the four legs into the base.
  3. Turn over the base to reveal the Swyft-Lok clips and slide in the back until you hear that satisfying ‘click’ sound.
  4. Slide the arms into place and push until you hear the Swyft-Lok ‘click.’
  5. Place the seat cushions on top of the base.
  6. Add the back cushions.
  7. Take a load off! You’re now ready to enjoy your new Swyft Sofa or Armchair.



Here at Swyft we believe in quality furniture with an innovative twist.  Our head office and manufacturing teams are furniture veterans, from our craftspeople to management, we all have a passion for innovation and design. What brought us together was the dream of creating a beautiful and functional sofa that could be delivered direct to your door, be light enough to assemble yourself and be agile enough to fit in the tightest of spaces.

Swyft is an English sofa company with design and back office teams in the heart of London. So we built our own factory in Porto, Portugal. The Swyft-Lok technology is our proprietary invention that makes the assembly of our sofas and armchairs a snap!

Don’t just take our word for it!  Here are some of our friends putting together their own Swyft sofas and chairs:


* Our packaging is made from recycled materials that are biodegradable. Including the plastic which has d2w added that over time with the presence of oxygen turns the plastic into a material with a different molecular structure. At the end of the process, it is no longer plastic and has become a material which will biodegrade in the open environment in the same way as a leaf. Learn more here.
