Zinus Jackie Modern Upholstered Sofa Review with DIY Installation

Since the sofa set in my house is wear and tear after almost ten years of using it, I have been hunting for new sofa offered in the market. Several factors for me to consider in buying a sofa, including shape, size, price point, style, colour and fabric. Recently I came across reading one of my friend's good review on Zinus Sofa, therefore I visited Zinus website to search for more information. 

Zinus brand has been in the market since year 1979. This global mattress and furniture brand is available in more than 15 countries and now is available in Malaysia's market. 

The strong points offered by Zinus are:

Built To Last
Strong frame wrapped in supportive foam cushioning and durable woven fabric.

Tool Free Assembly
All parts and instructions are packed into one box for easy assembly, without needed to use any other tools.

Easy Care
Affixed cushions are easily cleaned with a clean, damp cloth and mild detergent.

Since Zinus Showroom is not too far away from my house, I decided to pay a visit to the showroom so that I can touch and feel the sofa's fabric and to feel the sitting comfort on the sofa.

Josh Contemporary Upholstered Sofa, Beige

Zinus Designer Sofas are available in 3 series:
➡️ Richardo Designer Upholstered Sofa, Dark Grey
➡️ Jackie Modern Upholstered Sofa, Soft Grey Weave
➡️ Josh Contemporary Upholstered Sofa, Beige

All series come with 2-Seaters and 3-Seaters options.

Check my video below on my visit to Zinus Showroom.

I decided to choose Jackie Modern as I love its nice fabric with soft grey colour. After the satisfying checking and touching and sitting on my chosen sofa, I placed the purchase order via Zinus Website, since Zinus is offering FREE DELIVERY for all Zinus products within Peninsula Malaysia, as well as 1-Year Worry Free Limited Warranty on Zinus Sofa.

Do not worry on the self-installation process, I can assure that it is very easy indeed (check my video below and you will know that I am telling the true^^), plus it is Tool-Free, we can just install all parts without using other tools! The self-installation option is actually preferred by those who is living in apartment or condominium with limited space on corridor and lift. The compact size packaging box delivered by Zinus suits perfectly for the mentioned concerns.

Check my video below on this very easy DIY installation process.

The Zinus Jackie Modern Sofa arrived fast after ordering, within 3 to 4 days. The sofa was packed compactly in a packaging box with bubble wrapped and plastic wrapped for secure packaging. Everything arrived in one box, including two back pillows, two sofa arms (each marked with L for left, R for right), a box filled with five screw-on sofa legs, all these packed inside the sofa seat plus a sofa back.

4 sofa legs and 1 middle leg

No tools are needed for assembly. All we need to do is to twist the sofa legs into the holes underneath the two sofa arms and one sofa middle leg underneath middle of sofa seat, then to lift the sofa seat and to slide its brackets (two on either end) into the matching brackets on sofa arms. Next, to fit the sofa back into the remaining brackets on sofa arms, and to zip the gap between sofa seat and sofa back. Lastly, to place the back pillows and that is it.

Despite its light weight and taking just minutes to assemble, this sofa is very sturdy. It has a strong frame wrapped in supportive foam cushioning and durable woven fabric, with pocketed spring cushion and S-spring underlay, provides comfortable seating for up to three persons (for 3-Seaters option which is selected by me). Seat cushions are secured to the frame and are not detachable, while back cushions are detachable.

Jackie Modern Upholstered Sofa

In terms of style and design, I like Jackie's minimalist style with modern and chic feels. Jackie's soft grey fabric with its minimalist design can easily complement with any colours of walls in living room. While from a comfort perspective, the tall sofa legs that make the back and sides of this sofa slightly taller, visually, this is a design plus.

Polyester fabric with foam and fiber cushions

Zinus sofa provides easy care and maintenance too. Its polyester fabric with foam and fiber cushions can be easily cleaned with a clean, damp cloth and mild detergent.  

Besides the 3 series designer sofas, Zinus also offers mattresses, bedframes and cool pillows. Visit Zinus website to check for more information.
