There are many names this sofa goes by cloud sofa, cloud couch, Cloud sectional, tiny piece of heaven, top of my wishlist; you get the idea. Whether you want to call it a cloud sofa, you can't deny the charm or the relaxed vibe a cloud sofa brings. Want to learn more? We'll tell you more; Read on to learn everything you need to know!


What Is A Cloud Sofa?

A cloud sofa is just what it sounds like! Essentially, they are exactly what you think of them being! Dreamy, soft, feathery oasis without sharp edges but with everything you need for complete comfort. As a result of its low frame and almost invisible legs, it makes it appear as if it is floating in your living room. Usually, this type of sofa tends to be upholstered in white or cream, but you can also find these beauties upholstered in black, gray, brown, navy, etc.! The cushions of a cloud sofa tend to be larger than any ordinary couch cushion. Since there will be fewer breaks in the cushioning, it will be easier to get comfortable when you're napping.


How Do I Style A Cloud Couch? 

In addition to the fact that a cloud sofa comes with built-in pillows, another benefit of the cloud sofa is that you can skip purchasing additional cushions. Just throw on some throws, and you are all set! If you are pairing it with a coffee table, we suggest picking something that doesn't have too much height. The shorter coffee table helps to keep the sofa as the focal point of the room since a taller coffee table would throw the room's proportions out of whack. 


Clients have requested the cloud sofa continuously. On paper, the 100% down feather-filled cushion covered by your "custom" choice of upholstery may sound lovely. However, it does function as delightfully as it does on paper in practice. The clients are often drawn to how the Cloud is designed using its relaxed and modern look. Even though there is nothing wrong with modernity and a comfortable setting, the way this sofa is built creates a lot of stress in the home. As for the first, more straightforward issue, the oversized frame makes it difficult to install into homes - so you need to double-check your door widths to ensure it will work in your home. 


The oversized depth of the sofa is often an attraction for tall clients or those who like to watch movies on their sofa. RH is known for its deep cushions. The Cloud may seem cuddly to you and wrap around you like a hug, but your grandmother or great aunt might think differently. This sofa is comparable to a bean bag chair in that it sits very low to the ground and is very difficult to get out of.


This problem is also not helped by the cushion filling, which is made up of 100% down feathers. Like your down feather bedding, the feathers relax and compress when you sit on it, similar to when you sit on a cloud. The only issue is that since so many feathers are used to fill it, its weight compresses it and prevents it from fluffing back up after you sit up. The result is that each sofa cushion should be regularly fulled after every use to ensure it keeps its fluffiness. Even if that wasn't enough to irritate you, try lifting one of those cushions yourself. Whether you believe it or not, you should visit an RH nearest you and test how much these feathers can weigh. Trust me; you will not be able to lift that every day. 


These are things that salespeople won't share with people who are willing to spend $14K on a couch, in my opinion. I should also let you know that 100% linen upholstery is also a nightmare. Because the sofa does not bounce back after sitting on it, the fabric remains depressed and wrinkles with every touch. In addition, linen attracts stains for children as well. 


In summary, keep in mind that bigger is not always better for size. Please ensure that your cushion fill is the right balance of synthetic materials and down so that you have a comfortable sleeping experience. There should be noted that the exact percentage will vary based on the individual's preferences. If you are going to place a custom order, make sure you bring home a sample of the fabric before agreeing to the terms of the order. If you rub it on your dog, you will be amazed at how much hair it collects. Let your two-year-old play with it for an afternoon, and you will be surprised at how hard it is to clean - you will not regret it.
