Cloud Sofa Customisation
Cloud Petite Option:
We offer a petite cloud option that varies slightly from the standard module size for each cloud modular piece. The standard size of each module is 110cm x 110cm, and the size of a petite cloud module is 100cm x 100cm.
- Linen: Our linen has a unique basket weave look that offers both a pleasing texture, as well as natural variation throughout the multi-colour threads, for a fabric that's as one-of-a-kind as it is durable. Produced with a jacquard loom, this fabric is an outstanding textile designed for an outspoken sofa, the central part of any home, big or small.
- Polyester: Liverpool is a strong fabric offering clean structure and chic durability. The angular geometry of this weave is balanced by a clean yarn texture that offers an element of softness without giving up form. If you like a clean-finished feel, with texture and depth both visually and sensually, this fabric is for you.
- Lifeproof (POLYESTER): The Lifgeproof Performance Weave uses a garment-inspired twill weave to exude sophistication and is designed for larger format seating cushions, particularly feather-style sofas. The multi-layered yarns produce a heathered effect against a saturated colour palette that’s very soft to the touch, and in fact, liquid-resistant, inviting warmer white and lighter tones.
- Leather: Renaissance Full Grain Leather employs the vintage look of well-worn equestrian gear. However, contemporary tanning techniques create an inimitable warm patina. Each top grain hide is intentionally selected - to showcase the natural look of genuine leather with a light protective top coat that helps resist spills and stains.
We're an almost entirely vertical company, which allows us to be very deliberate about the vendors we work with. Our distributor only uses non-live-plucked down feathers, which they obtain as natural byproducts of the food industry. They're audited and inspected by the Feather and Down Association every year, and their certification is renewed annually. Of course, we understand that Feather Down isn't for everyone. It's why we put so much effort into making our Poly Fill as similar in feel as possible.
Our Poly-fill consists of small, curled polyester fibres that are man-made. This option is referred to as the down alternative, they’re designed to mimic the soft, lightweight qualities of down fill. This alternative is suitable for people who experience allergies when exposed to true genuine down.
Our manufacturing period is usually 12-14 weeks. Your sofa does not exist yet, it will be built from scratch and handmade by our team over 10 weeks. The current Estimated Time of Arrival in Australia is approximately 16 - 18 weeks from the date that you place the order - this is an estimation only and may be subject to further delay.
It is important that we let you know at this early stage we will be doing everything we can to get your order shipped and delivered to you as soon as we can, although due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, any dates and times we provide are estimates only and are subject to delay.
Whilst you can work off the ETA we have provided you as a guide, shipping times can change at any time, this has been a common narrative since March 2020. We do expect your order to ship in time, although in the event of a delay, we will notify you as early as we can.
Our advice and tips:
- Delivery times and ETAs are estimate only, and may be subject to change.
- Do not get rid of your old sofa until our delivery agent confirms directly with you, as delays can occur at any moment, especially in the last stages of shipping.
- Keep an eye out for your inbox (and Junk folder) for updates to let you know how your order is tracking.
- Deposits on custom furniture cannot be refunded after 21 days. Please express any 'must have in my home by' dates so we can give you an honest expectation of the likelihood of this happening.
- Changes in fabric, configuration, and covering may not be available after 15 days.
The good news is, our workshop is still producing on time and we expect no delays in the production of your order. If there is anything else you need between now and then, please feel free to reach us on (03) 9500 0799, or send us an email , or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Linen can be trickier to wash compared to polyester, as the covers can only be washed on a cold cycle, we also recommend using natural cleaning detergents with linen as more harsh detergents can stiffen or damage the fabric.
Did you spot a stain? Don't panic! Immediately blot the stain with a clean, dry white cloth. Please do not rub. If the dry cloth doesn’t do the trick, use a damp white cloth to blot the stain. Please do not use any detergent and make sure to use distilled water to reduce the risk of water stains.
Your item is not a big fan of direct sunlight and heat. So do your furniture a favour and keep it away from sunny spots and radiators as much as possible.
Keep it clean You can easily clean your furniture with a vacuum cleaner on low power, using a soft brush.
From time to time, your couch and chair cushions need some tough love to keep them in shape. To start, simply punch and bang at the seat and back cushions. It's ok to be a little bit aggressive here, but be careful with sharp nails and jewellery. Continue punching from one end to the other end and make sure you don't miss a spot. Once you're done, find the centre of the seat and smooth the fabric from the centre point to the edges.
We understand the challenges of buying a sofa online, without having the opportunity to sit on it or feel the fabric first. Which is why we try to make the decision easier with our fabric swatches. You can order a $15 express swatch kit, which includes all of the fabric options available for our cloud sofa/bed range. Alternatively if you are interested in specific colours, you can contact our sales team and they can arrange to have up to 4 swatches posted to you. The $15 swatch kit can be ordered here: https://www.bananahome.com.au/collections/swatches-colour
Cloud Build Info
Our furniture frames are constructed with kiln-dried timbers,* solid wood that provide for exceptionally sturdy, long-lasting furniture pieces.
We include engineered wood which is made from layers of laminated wood to further reinforce the hardwood frames, increasing structural integrity. Our furniture frames are secured with corner blocking, industrial strength staples, and heavy duty furniture glues. All of our frames are backed by our limited frame warranty, applicable to the original owner and original delivery address only.
The kiln-drying process avoids frame warping & the creation of mildew in climates which are humid, such as North Queensland. Majority of our sofas are tailored with a slight 'pitch'. This creates a slight angle in the seat/back section of the sofa and allows your body to comfortably sink into the sofa. The pitch is not visible on a sofa, and it engineered into the frame.
The cloud modular sofa has a premium, dual layered high density foam that covers the entire frame. Foam is the most expensive component of a sofa, and is the first thing a manufacture will attack to reduce cost. We pride ourselves on using High Density foam seating, which is costly, yet an essential component to ensuring our pieces last structurally, and remain comfortable for many years to come The foam is the perfect mix between firm, and soft and is what our customers define as 'very comfortable'.
Foam cores will soften by 10-15% with usage, this is a natural property of foam and will bring out the best of your couch with usage. Our foam is compliant with the current safety standards for flammability, and are safe for all families. Our products are proudly formaldehyde free, with each material carefully selected to ensure low VOC content.
