This Coogee Outdoor Modular Lounge Sofa by Dreamo is, at first sight, a bargain. Offering space for four sitting as well as a coffee table and a side table, it’s a modular outdoor sofa that brings the comfort of your living room to the patio or yard. But as we all know, just because outdoor furniture looks good online, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily such a bargain out of the box. Let’s take a look at various aspects of the Coogee Outdoor Modular Lounge Sofa and consider whether it’s worth your money.
Pros and cons
+ Contemporary modular design
+ Fantastic value for money
+ Very comfortable
+ Appears well-made
– Not the easiest to assemble
– Cushions looked a little on the thin side
It has to be said: this modular sofa looks great. It’s available in both grey and black, with both shades being neutral enough to suit most outdoor spaces. Its design is contemporary and very similar to other rattan-style outdoor sofa sets seen on the market, so while it’s not going to stand out as a designer piece, it’s also never going to look out of place no matter what style you’re going for.
Each element of this sofa set looks well-made, and without any nicks or defects in the hand-woven wicker. The paintwork is good, and the sofa’s modular design means that it can be adapted to fit various different spaces, making it a great choice for a wide range of yards.
Overall, this modular sofa set was neither easy to assemble nor especially difficult. It took quite a few hours to assemble, and if you’ve never assembled a piece of flat-pack furniture before you might struggle. However, once you’ve learned to decipher the product’s instructions, it does fit together reasonably simply and most of the sofa’s elements are perfectly sized for assembly.
This is one to ask for help with if you’re inexperienced, but seasoned flat-pack assemblers shouldn’t struggle too much with it.
This Dreamo Outdoor Modular Lounge Sofa set, once it’s finally assembled, seems very sturdy and well-made, especially for the price. There’s no doubt that it will withstand the weight of anyone who sits on it, and it looks like a fine set for families with rambunctious kids or boisterous dogs, too. It’s clear that each individual element of this sofa set is durable and built using high-quality materials, which bodes well for its longevity in the long term. Having used this sofa set for a short time, I’d have no worries about its stability years down the line.
Of course, no sofa, outdoor or indoor, is worth buying if it’s not also comfortable to sit on. When first unpacking the box, this sofa’s cushions looked a little on the thin side, which was a concern. However, once the sofa was assembled and ready to try out, it proved to be a very comfortable experience.
This sofa’s cushions could be thicker, but actually, they’re more comfortable than they look and don’t need replacing. Customers who want a little extra padding could accessorise with additional outdoor cushions, though for most this shouldn’t be needed. Overall, it’s a very comfy set.
Probably one of this sofa set’s strongest selling points is its relatively low price point compared to similar sets, which makes it excellent value for money. Considering it’s comfortable, well-built, and attractive, buyers looking for an affordable outdoor sofa set could do a lot worse than the Coogee. It might not break any new ground but it’s a solid example of a contemporary wicker style sofa set that won’t look outdated in your yard in five years’ time.
Dreamo offers a wide range of outdoor furniture options, some of which might be better suited to buyers with bigger yards wanting a sofa set that accommodates more guests. Their Lizard modular sofa set seats six, while the Bali outdoor dining set is a better choice for buyers wanting to host outdoor dinners and grills.
The final verdict
The Coogee Outdoor Modular Lounge Sofa set by Dreamo is a great product considering its low price point. There are no doubt better modular sofa sets on the market, but for under $700, customers can’t do much better than this. It’s a comfortable modular sofa set that looks good and will no doubt last for years, although buyers must be aware that they’ll have a few tough hours of assembly in store before they can enjoy their new sofa with the Coogee. Overall, this outdoor sofa set comes highly recommended to buyers looking for excellent value on a tight budget.
