Koala Cushy Sofa Bed

The pleasures of spending a sleepover with your special someone! You can watch your favourite movie; afterwards, you can snuggle up close and get cosy.

Your furniture will affect how comfortable this experience is, so you’ll need to invest in a quality sofa bed. 

For this reason, we conducted the necessary research and assembled an in-depth assessment of the Koala Cushy sofa bed. 

If you’re acquainted with the Australian furniture market, you’ve probably seen the Koala brand and its extensive selection of multi-award-winning furniture pieces and mattresses. It’s difficult to be dissatisfied with this brand because of its emphasis on dependability and quality.

Koala Cushy Sofa Bed Review

We want to cover several of the most intriguing aspects of this sofa bed before we go into more detail. Here are some things that most other Australians and we adore about the Koala Cushy Sofa Bed.

  • Flips and folds quickly
  • Backrests with the ideal angle and padded armrests
  • Built with polyurethane foam that has CertiPUR-US certification
  • Free of VOCs and formaldehyde
  • It has a 120-night trial period
  • Includes a five-year warranty

How Comfortable Is The Koala Cushy Sofa Bed?

The plush, pillowy cushions allow you to enjoy a delightful sitting pleasure with the sofa mode. Additionally, you can lounge or sit on the Koala sofa the whole day thanks to its inclined backrest and armrests. The adequately quilted sleeping layer makes the bed mode just as pleasant for sleeping on.

The Koala sofa bed switches between modes rather quickly and offers a uniform feel devoid of bumps or other imperfections. The sofa’s adaptability and practical design allow you to turn it into a cosy mini bed quickly.

The lack of creaky joints or hinges on the Koala sofa bed is another feature we enjoyed. It won’t make any unpleasant sounds, even if your kids jump on it.


The materials used to make the Koala sofa bed will be the first topic of discussion as we explore the product specifications. After all, the bed’s durability and comfort levels are determined by its materials.

The Koala sofa bed’s general longevity is increased by using 100% polyester in the surface fabric. The foam in the bed comprises polyurethane components to provide the most outstanding comfort level.

More specifically, the bed’s polyurethane foam is divided into two layers: a support layer made of polyurethane foam and a comfort layer made of polyurethane. The first layer ensures the couch bed is solid enough to support loads. 

On the other hand, the second layer (encased in a layer of polyester wadding for added support) improves user comfort.

In addition, 30% urethane foam chips and 70% polyester fibre fillings are used in the seat inserts and backrest cushions. This offers sufficient amounts of resilience and padding without feeling overly unbalanced.


Koala features three sizes — single, double, and queen. You may choose the single option if you sleep individually, while the queen-size sofa can accommodate three people, making it ideal for families.

Nevertheless, we’ve listed the measurements for each size below to help you make an even more informed decision.

  • Single (1.5-seater): measures 75.5 by 116 by 103 cm (the length is 217.6 cm when the bed is open), weighs 50 kilograms
  • Double (2.5-seater): measures 75.5 by 162 by 103 cm (the length is 217.6 cm when the bed is open), weighs 58.7 kilograms
  • Queen (3-seater): measures 79.2 by 177 by 103 cm (the length is 221 cm when the bed is open) and weighs 69 kilograms. 


Below is a list of the prices for the various Koala Cushy sofa beds.

  • Single: $1,399
  • Double: $1,849
  • Queen: $2,099

Although the Koala sofa beds are slightly expensive, it is a worthwhile purchase, given their qualities. If you spend a little extra, you can buy extras like bedding and an ottoman stool to get the whole set.

Protection And Care

Like every other sofa bed, it requires routine maintenance to stay clean. We advise using a vacuum at low suction to eliminate any loose particles. Additionally, keep it out of direct sunlight to prevent harm to the polyester fibres.

The spot-cleaning technique can be used to get rid of loose dirt, stains, and other unpleasant blemishes. To quickly clean up spills, use a moist towel to wipe the soiled area and for the most remarkable results, use warm water with mild detergent.

In that regard, refrain from using steel brushes since they can harm the polyester material. Additionally, avoid using too much liquid because it could create a watermark. 

The best place to test the water-detergent solution is in a concealed part of the fabric. Don’t use it if there is any discolouration. Anyhow, after cleaning, dry the Koala sofa bed inside a room with good ventilation.

Additionally, owing to regular wear and tear, you could detect occasional fibre pills on the sofa bed’s surface. In that scenario, you can use a pilling tool to extract the pills carefully.


Although it feels firm and supportive, the sleep surface should be comfortable enough for short-term sleeping scenarios. Partner disruption shouldn’t be a big issue if you share the bed. 

The Koala Cushy Sofa Bed feels cosy but firm when in “sofa” mode. Compared to the sofas we tested at major department stores, we considered the Koala sofa comfier.

Warranty and Shipping

You can easily order the Koala Cushy Sofa Bed online on the Koala site, and the product will be delivered to your home in four boxes.

The shipping cost may vary based on your location and the nature of your purchase, but delivery is offered across Australia.

Most Koala items are in stock and available for delivery to your doorstep. They provide advanced slots and three daily delivery periods, so you can choose a time that works for you.

The company offers a five-year warranty period for the Koala Cushy sofa. 

Sleeping Style

The Koala Cushy sofa has a firm feel and is, therefore, best for stomach sleepers. However, remember that long-term use of sofa beds is possible but not recommended. A bed frame and mattress made exclusively for sleeping will always be preferable to a couch bed.

Overall Comfort

We adore the generous padding and cushioning on the back and armrests. However, some users find it uncomfortable that it is a little low when you pull out the sofa bed. It should be slightly higher off the ground, though kids adore it.

Best Suited For 

There are three sizes of the Koala Cushy Sofa Bed. The 1.5-seater is excellent for kids or a solo sleeper as it unfolds to a single mattress, while the 2.5-seater extends to a double-size mattress and can be used by couples. The 3-seater unfolds into a queen mattress and has a larger sleeping capacity, suitable for a family.

Sleep Temperature

The Koala Cushy Sofa is built with breathability in mind, so hot sleepers will find the experience comfortable. 

Final Verdict

We concur that this sofa bed is somewhat expensive. However, if you have the money and want a cosy sofa bed, go ahead and order a brand-new Cushy sofa bed without blinking an eye.

You have 120 nights to test it out, and if you’re not happy, you can choose to get a full refund. Additionally, along with most Koala products, the company guarantees free shipping.

You have a lot of alternatives because it is available in four colours: tinny, gum leaf, ink, and vanilla. Additionally, it is pretty simple to put together compared to other sofa beds, which is a plus.

This concludes our evaluation of the Koala sofa bed. Hopefully, you’ve been able to decide.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Are Koala furnishings cosy?

Yes, we heavily used the sofa for a few months and found no signs of sagging, discolouration, pilling, or creaking, so we can comfortably say it is durable. 

What Are Klik Klak sofas?

Klik klak sleepers are essentially an improvement on futons, except they are much comfier and typically with extra bedding storage. These couches have a nice, albeit somewhat contemporary, appearance, and one person can easily pull out the sleeper option.

Is Koala a trusted brand?

Koala received ratings of 4 or 5 stars from more than 93% of its clients, which is excellent feedback. Those who didn’t like their initial Koala mattress typically complained that it needed to be more firm or that there were infrequent problems with long-term comfort.

Why does my sofa feel so uncomfortable?

Uncomfortable couches, both new and old, are frequently the result of their materials’ poor quality. The cushions of couches from brands like IKEA and some internet merchants are usually filled with cheap material.

Are there any cosy pull-out couches?

These days, couch beds are not only attractive but also comfy. Couches with memory-foam mattresses, velvet sofas, and sectional sofas are also available. There needs to be a justification for not having a sleeper sofa in the den, kids’ playroom, or living room. 

What qualities distinguish a high-quality couch?

Better-quality products have batting-wrapped foam that is encased in muslin. Knead the frame’s arms, corners, back, and rail to identify if the sofa is comfortable. 

You can tell when the padding is inadequate if you encounter rough or sharp sides.  The sofa bed’s back should also have padding for finishing aesthetics.
