Choosing Your Sac

How much space do I need for my Le Sac™️? 

Use the dimensions provided on each product page to measure the space requirements on your floor.

The Sacs are actually a little smaller than our guidelines.  We have taken into consideration foot-room at the front of the item and that the Sac will slightly expand under compression.  If you have a lot of other furniture items in the room - choose carefully - because if the Sac is too large it can make the room look small and overcrowded.  Ideally you don't want the Sac to obscure pathways in or out of the room, and you don't want it pressed up against anything.  As with the various recommendations below, this is simply a guide.  Ultimately space dictates much of the decision process.

What Sac is best for two people? 

The Lanren is the best two-seater.  It provides optimum comfort while maintaining an individual's personal space.  However, as it takes up a lot of room, you may prefer the Duette.  It’s an ultimate single-seater, but it’s possible to seat two as well - only in this case there's a little less elbow room.  Strangers may feel a little uncomfortable at the proximity, but two friends gaming or a couple curled up to watch movies will have no issue.

What's the difference between a XP, Meuse and Repose? 

The Meuse is simply the size up from the Li'l Buddy.  It’s ideal for teens, and smaller adults if you’re looking at the more traditional shape with a little extra support.  The Meuse is the middle ground - a blend of both the XP and Repose assets.

The XP is the same size as the Meuse, only it’s in a square shape.  The construction allows the person to sit more upright and forward, like a chair.  The person also sits higher up off the ground.  It is possible to recline on the XP too, however you need to angle it more like a diamond shape, punch in the lower corner and then sit in that groove.  The XP is for more active, upright use.

The Repose is narrower than both the Meuse and XP, however it is longer.  It’s ideal for tucking into corners when not in use.  It is actually a giant rectangular pillow that is placed on its side with one of its corners tucked in.  When sat in, the person will sit lower than the other two, however get more horizontal support.  The Repose is for more of a relaxed vibe.

What's the difference between Microsuede, Plushsuede & Corduroy? 

Microsuede:

is a synthetic suede made to feel authentic.  It is soft and durable.  It is cooler to the touch than Plushsuede.  Microsuede is very tough.  When sitting on a Sac in a Microsuede cover you sink deep into the item as the air billows through the item, moving the foam around you.  

Plushsuede:

is literally a double layered version of Microsuede.  The result is a thicker, wrinkled aesthetic which looks a lot more like a leather.  It feels the same as Microsuede on the skin, that is until you pinch or press into the fabric where it begins to feel softer.  Because it is thicker it has more ‘give’.  Plushsuede is a slightly warmer fabric.  When sitting on a Sac in a Plushsuede cover you're placed more on top of the item as the heavier fabric creates more of an even spread - like a giant day bed.

Corduroy

is a polyester/cotton blend designed to be soft, supple, and supportive.  It hugs the Insert with a firm fit, pulling the item up into a plump buoyant shape.  This allows the sitter to be supported with a bit of spring under their seat.  The only Corduroy colour available at present is Forest Green.  It brings an element of nature to your space with a hint of its retro heritage.

Do different covers alter the Sac experience? 

They do, though it's not easily noticeable unless you were to try one after the other and the difference is negligible. 

In short: Microsuede allows the person to sit 'in' the Sac more, whereas Plushsuede allows the person to sit 'on' the Sac more.  

To elaborate: as Microsuede is thinner, when a person sits down it allows the air to rush through the foam and push the air through the billowing cover.  Plushsuede is heavier so there is less air contained within the item prior to sitting.  Therefore, when a person sits down, the foam doesn't have the same amount of force or room to move; it's more contained.  The result is that Plushsuede can be a slightly firmer seat, and Microsuede can be more of a buoyant seat.  Corduroy on the other hand, provides the sitter with some bounce.  It has a sponge-like quality that allows the sitter to feel buoyant.  All of our covers will envelop you in a luxurious hug.

*Please note that the difference between fabrics are negligible.  Our choices above merely reflect an opinion of our own, which is no more or less valid than yours.  Every day our customers make their own decisions - usually based on colour*

What cover would you recommend for kids? 

You could choose Plushsuede as it is a thicker fabric, and arguably it could wear better over time.  That said, both covers are equally durable.  By the time it took to wear through the panels of a Microsuede cover would be similar to the amount of wear a Plushsuede cover would have over the same period.

Can I exchange a colour or cover that I don't like? 

Yes, you can.  You have 14 days to exchange the cover.  It will be inspected for signs of wear and tear.  It must be in a new condition fit for resale.

Can I buy extra covers? 

Yes, you can.  Simply click || here ||

What's the difference between your Ottomans? 

The Soft Ottoman is a mini version of our larger Sacs.  It has an inner liner that protects the foam.  They are our soft plushy option for a footrest.  

A Firm Ottoman doesn't have an inner liner and is a firm block of foam; though you can still remove and wash the cover.  Firm Ottomans are firm enough to act as a little side table to hold your favourite drink or snack.  They can also be used as secondary seating for those under 50kgs.

    Can Le Sac manufacture custom-made covers? 

    Absolutely.  You can provide your own fabric or send us on a mission to source it for you.  We also cater to businesses interested in purchasing multiple items with specific colour and logo requirements.  Please enquire via hq[at]lesac.com.au
