How to Set Up Lovesac Bean Bag? – Step-by-Step Guide

Lovesac bean bags have taken the world of comfort furniture by storm, providing a cozy and stylish seating option for homes and offices alike. But when you receive a new packed sac at your home, it does require some technique and effort to assemble them.

Setting up your Lovesac bean bag is a straightforward process that can be accomplished by anyone at home. Whether you’re a first-time owner or looking to refresh your setup, this guide will help you make the most of your investment.

How to Set Up Lovesac Bean Bag? – Easy Process to Follow

Let me walk you through the assembly steps of the sac to ensure you have your Lovesac bean bag up and ready for relaxation in no time.

Received Package

I received the Lovesac in shrunk form, packed in a duffle bag. Along with the sac, I received a cardboard box containing the removeable cover packed in a plastic bag. The removable cover makes it easy for maintaining the bean bag, which ensures you have invested in the right option.

Choosing the Right Location

I selected a suitable location for my Lovesac bean bag. My chosen location was a  spacious area where I was able to enjoy the comfiness and relaxation of using the bean bag without disturbance. Also, for a giant-size sac like Lovesac, you do need a big space to assemble it safely.

Step 1. Unpacking My LoveSac Bean Bag

Firstly, I carefully unzipped the duffle bag having the sac in shrunk form.

Step 2. Pulling Out Inner Sac

Then, I took help from my friend to pull out the Shrunk inner sac from the duffle bag. The inner sac is covered in plastic and has Durafoam filling in it, which makes it a premium bean bag. Just a quick tip, Instead of pulling the sac, turn over the duffle bag and pull the bag towards the outside.

Step 3. Expand the Sac

Then, I removed the plastic from the sac and waited for the bean bag to expand. Sac took about an hour to expand fully. In case you want to speed up the process, you may break the foam by punching, kicking it, or even letting your kids dance on it, but it will take a lot of your energy.

Step 4. Fluff the Bean Bag

Once the sac was fully expanded, I fluffed the bean bag by tossing it around and constantly rotating it clockwise and anti-clockwise. You can fluff it any way you like. The best way is to grab the sac from the bottom and roll it up. Repeat the process till the sac is fluffed enough.

Fluffing a sac to its full capacity can take up to a week. Though you don’t have to wait for that much time to put a cover on it.

Step 5. Unpack Cover for Sac

Now, it was time to put the cover on the bean bag. I opened the cardboard box and removed the plastic from the cover. Before proceeding, I inspected the bean bag cover for any damage. It’s essential to ensure everything is in perfect condition before assembly.

Step 6. Unzip the Entire Cover

Next, I unzipped the complete zipper of the cover.

Step 7. Tie Up Laces of Cover with Sac

At the end of the cover’s zippers, I found two shoelaces-type strings. And on both ends of the zipper on the sac, I found two weaving loops. To attach the cover with the naked sac, I tied the strings with the loops. I passed the strings through each loop and tied both of the strings separately at each cover’s zipper corner.  

Step 8. Toss the Cover

Then, I tossed the entire cover on the sac.

Step 9. Close the Zipper

Now, I need to zip up the cover. For that, I located the head of the zipper and slowly started to zip up the cover on the sac. I rotated the sac and pulled the cover together while I slowly closed its zipper. I kept on rotating the sac away from me and closing the zipper till the whole sac was zipped up.

Just to let you know, removing the cover for cleaning and other reasons is as easy as putting the cover.

Step 10. Shake and Fluff the Sac Again

Once I had put the cover on the sac, I gave it a shake and fluffed it a bit again. And now, I was ready to enjoy using my giant bean bag.

How to Wash Lovesac Sac Removable Covers?

Your LoveSac bean bag covers deserve some TLC, and we’ve got you covered with this simple cleaning guide. Your LoveSac deserves the best, and with these steps, you’ll keep it looking its finest.

Step 1. Unzip and Remove the Sac Cover

I begin by carefully unzipping and removing the cover from your beloved bean bag. I took extra care to avoid damaging the filler material inside.

Step 2. Pat or Wipe Away Dirt and Debris

Then I dust off my cover to remove any unsightly debris, dirt, or dust before washing. This DIY approach doesn’t require any fancy cleaning agents or washing machines. I zipped the cover shut before I started patting or wiping.

Step 3. Remove Stubborn Stains

For visible stains, I wash them with a high-quality washing soap. I started by blotting the spill with a dry cloth, then I applied the soap generously to the stain. I allowed it to work its magic for half an hour before gently scrubbing the area with a clean, damp cloth.

Step 4. Vacuum for a Finishing Touch

After the initial dusting, I gave my covers a thorough vacuuming. This step left them looking fresh while they were not on the furniture yet.

Step 5. Washing Machine Magic

If some dirt and stains refuse to budge, it’s time for the washing machine. I placed the covers inside, added cold water, and selected the gentle wash cycle. A reliable laundry detergent like Gain or Tide pod did the trick, but I was cautious with chemicals that might not be suitable for all cover materials.

Note: Avoid liquid fabric softeners at all costs, as they can harm your covers irreparably.

Step 6. Gentle Air Dry

Once my Lovesac covers were squeaky cleaned, I hung them up to air dry. I never consider a dryer, as it could lead to unwanted shrinkage, turning my covers useless for my furniture.

Remember, intentional shrinking might have its uses, like during transportation or storage, but unintentional and permanent shrinkage will only cause you headaches.

And there you have it—pristine LoveSac covers ready to adorn my fav piece of furniture once more. Before reassembling my bean bag chair, I ensured the covers were completely dried to avoid any potential furniture mishaps.


Well, that was all about the process of assembling a sac. Setting up your Lovesac bean bag is a breeze, and it offers unparalleled comfort and style for your living space. Embrace the joy of relaxation with Lovesac today!
