If you’re in the market for seating in your living room, but don’t want the hassle of in-store shopping, it may be time to consider Campaign Living and their Campaign sofa.
This sofa is available online, assembles in minutes without the use of additional tools, and has a sleek, mid-century modern aesthetic.
With an easy assembly that competes with the likes of IKEA, but a higher quality build and look that competes with higher priced showroom products, Campaign Living floats in the middle ground between these two.

The Bottom Line
The Campaign sofa was designed for people who are looking for simplicity with a mid-century modern design twist. The furniture collection is quick and easy to put together. Return policy isn’t great at 14 days, but it’s still something. Additionally, the Campaign Living collection includes an armchair, love seat, and sofa, allowing you to mix and match for a whole room design.
Campaign Living Materials & Design
The Campaign Living collection, has a few different furniture pieces in it, that use a similar collection of parts and pieces.
LEGS | The legs of the Campaign couch simple screw into the bottom of the sofa. They are made of solid American hardwood and then coated with a clear water-based finish. There are two available finishes for legs—maple or oak hardwood with a mahogany stain.
FRAME | The Campaign Living frame is made of laser-cut, powder-coated, cold-rolled steel. Unlike modular sofas like, the Burrow, which has a frame divided into many parts, the Campaign Living frame uses wide-span steel for structural stability and the absence of joints or weak points in the frame.
SEAT | The seat is made from high-resiliency, polyurethane foam. It is free of any flame-retardants and 100% recyclable. One unique aspect about the Campaign furniture sets is that they offer replacement furniture cover sets.
Using concealed velco tabs, these replacement sets allow you to change out the look of your Campaign sofa without the added expense of replacing the frame or structural components.
Campaign considers their seat cushions to be MEDIUM-FIRM.
All of the fabrics used for Campaign sofa upholstery are made up of 97% polyester and 3% nylon. To clean the fabrics, spot clean or hand wash and air dry. See our vacuum cleaner reviews for whole home cleaning or best handheld vacuums for spot cleaning in between couch cushions.
ARMS | The arms of the Campaign sofa are shipped separately from the rest of the sofa. There is only one height available and the box standard sized—29″ x 9″ x 38″. In total, the arms weight 42 pounds when they arrive at your doorstep.
Looking for low arms? Check out the Burrow couch review, which offers two arm heights for their sofa.
BACK | The backs of the Campaign sofa are made of polyester fibers. These cushions are also made of 100% recyclable materials. You can select from any of the standard Campaign sofa fabrics (17 colors currently offered).
Campaign considers their back cushions to be SOFT.
Similar to the seat cushions, back cushions are also included in the replacement couch cover sets. These covers can be purchased separated from the whole piece of furniture, which allows you to save some cash, but swap our colors as desired.

How to Assemble A Campaign Living Couch
Assembling the Campaign sofa takes between 15-20 minutes and takes two people. The table above outlines additional assembly times and people required for each piece.
UNBOXING | Actual assembly is also pretty straightforward. When your sofa arrives, it’ll come in two boxes. The smaller box (29″ x 9″ x 38″) contains the the arms while the larger box has all the parts for the actual sofa (25″ x 11″ x 88″).
ASSEMBLY | Once you have all the pieces, it’s simply a matter of sliding the pieces into place and locking them tight. No additional tools are needed, besides the tools that come in the box.
One important note – as you are unboxing your couch, loveseat, or chair, make sure you don’t destroy the box. In the event you want to return the couch you’ll need to send it back in its original packaging to get a refund.
Is the Campaign Living Sofa Comfortable?
Details and specifications aside, is the Campaign sofa actually comfortable? Buying a sofa online, it can be hard to tell, especially since the word “comfortable” means different things for different people.
What one user could find to be extremely firm, may be just right for another. That being said, there is a certain range of comfort that most people deem acceptable.
Based off of that Campaign Living says about their own products, they deem the seat cushions to be moderately firm and the back cushions to be soft.
Below are what users are saying about how comfortable the Campaign Living couch, love seat, and chair are:

Should You Buy the Campaign Sofa?
So we’ve done a full rundown of furniture startup, Campaign Living. Is the Campaign sofa the next big thing to hit the flat-pack furniture market? And more importantly, is it right for your home and your lifestyle?
I would recommend the Campaign Living Sofa for people who are looking for:
- Easy assembly: As a member of the flat-pack family, the Campaign sofa, love seat, and chair is inherently easy to assemble, with parts that require no additional tools for setup. Overall, assembly takes between 15-20 minutes for most of the pieces in the collection.
- Replacement fabric covers: Campaign is one of the only known flat-pack providers who offer replacement fabric cover sets. This makes it easy to swap it out, if you get a stain that’s just not salvageable, or simply want to mix up the color palette of your living room.
- Expanded fabric options: Unlike its competitor, Burrow, the Campaign collection offers 17 unique colors that you can specify for your couch, including Flat Weave fabrics (7 colors), Merino Weave fabrics (3 colors), or Brushed Weave (7 colors). Of the three types, Brushed Weave is the only selection that does not offer any stain-resistant capabilities.
