How To Put Together A Sectional Sofa

2018-11-14T17:24:50+00:00

We know you’re not afraid of a little self-assembly; that’s why you chose Nabru – it’s our speciality. So when it comes to putting together a sectional sofa, it’s just another step along the road to lazy mornings, cosy evenings, and maybe an afternoon nap, all on the great new sofa you will always have the satisfaction of putting together yourself.

Our sectional sofas are available as a simple Chaise Sofa for you to stretch out on, right up to our six to nine-seater corner sofas. You can also design your own variant on the corner sofa, with symmetrical shapes and L-shapes, or you might opt for an armless ended sofa, which we find really easy to jump on at the end of an exhausting day. But more of that later.

Whichever design you choose, of course you need to create as much space as possible in your room to put it together. Our self-assembly instructions and videos are really straightforward and we know that the comfort you will feel on your sofa is a major motivation when getting your tools out to tackle the self-assembly process. Well, the same applies to putting a sectional sofa together, and you don’t even need any tools.

Connecting your sectional sofa

Don’t worry too much about having the sofa in its finished location, let’s just get it together first and we can shuffle it into place later.

Once you have assembled your sofa, before you add the seat and back cushions, tilt the main section of the sofa on its back. It is much easier to slot each section together in this way as you can see the connectors more clearly and you are able to manoeuvre the sections into place easier.

If you have a number of sections, it may require two people to fit each part together, and if you have a longer section, for a six to nine-seater for example, you may need to lay the sofa flat in its normal position to add the final section.

Positioning your sectional sofa

The connectors are designed to be easily locatable and very secure, and even if you can’t see it, it is clear when you have connected the sections properly as you can feel the solidity in the sofa where it is inter-connected.

And that’s pretty much it – you can now manoeuvre the sectional sofa into its proper position. There is a bit of an art to this, however, and you might need a couple of people to help you. Even dragging a sofa that only has two sections a few inches can damage the connections, so you need to have someone lifting each section, so that the sofa moves ‘as one’ and the connections remain secure and not strained.

You can now add the seat and back cushions and get comfortable on your new sectional sofa!
