I bought one of the Tic Tok couches for my family room a few months ago. This couch replaced a much larger pleather sectional that had begun peeling. We placed our order through Nebraska Furniture Mart over the phone and had the couch delivered a few weeks later. To be completely honest my husband got the measurements wrong in his head and thought this couch was the same dimensions as the couch it was going to replace. Not quite!
Upon delivery, we realized this new couch was much smaller in size and the chaise was on the wrong side. Thinking we made a mistake we called Nebraska Furniture Mart to see why the wrong side was sent and was told it was their error. The couch was advertised as being a left chaise but is only manufactured as a right. The company did refund one hundred dollars for their false advertisement. After debating whether to keep the couch or return, we decided to keep and rearrange the family room to make this new couch fit against the wall.
Yep we read that right. I wasn't sure if I would like the smaller size but after two months of use, I do. I like how the smaller size opened the room up and allowed more space. The room seems bigger and more functional. We had our family Christmas in the family room for the first time ever. We had gotten to were we rarely used the family room because no one wanted to sit on the peeling couch. To date, we have spent several nights a week watching TV or playing games in this room. There have been a few instances were the bigger sectional would have allowed more seating but normally we don't typically have that many people needing a seat at once.
Makes into a bed
With little to no effort, you can pull out the extra piece of couch and make a bed. The size seems comparable to a full size bed. Many of nights I will pull out the extra piece and have a dog or husband laying beside me watching TV. Who doesn't love cuddles? I did sleep on the couch for an entire night and found it to be quite comfortable. I would have zero issues offering this couch to an overnight guest.
The chaise opens up to allow storage under the seating. I am going to place a change of bedding in the bin for those instances where someone may need to use the couch as a bed. For families with small children I could imagine filling with toys or board games. The area is quite large with endless options for it's use. The chaise is on springs and is easily lifted up and closed. The closures is slow and controlled. This eliminates any worry of anything getting smashed as it closes. If I didn't already have an oversized basket to keep throw blankets, I would be using this storage area for those.
I wanted something to replace the peeling couch I had in the family room but didn't want to spend a fortune on something that wouldn't get used much. Funny because now that we have the new couch in the room we spend all kinds of time in the room. We were able to get a lower price when ordering than what was listed online, add in the hundred they took off for the wrong side chaise, and it was almost a no brainer. Final price for a new couch was five hundred. We usually take advantage of Nebraska Furniture Mart's 30 month interestCons:
I know, wishy washy right!. I do like the smaller size but also liked the larger size I had before. This couch honestly sits two maybe three comfortably. Myself and a dog seem to fit perfectly but add in a husband and it becomes a tight squeeze.
I would have rather had a darker color fabric but this couch only came in light gray. I have much anxiety that my lab dogs will come in from outside with muddy paws and jump on the couch.
Definitely worth the price we paid. I don't plan on having this couch for a lifetime so whatever the life ends up being will be fine with me. I have come to accept the light color and smaller size. The room we added this to looks more updated and trendy, so that was a huge win.
