Dear SOFACOMPANY Customers

Our Response to COVID-19

Please visit the official SA government website for COVID-19, call the hotline number 0800 029 999 or join the WhatsApp support line at 0600 123 456

To help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, both our showroom in Cape Town and our showroom in Kramerville, Jozi are closed during the 21-day lockdown period. During the closure, we are paying our teams, while working to provide additional resources to help staff members who might be impacted during this challenging time.

We are open online 24|7 and we are working around the clock to help you shop seamlessly via our website. Our Customer Service and Sales team, as well as our talented Designers and Product Professionals working behind the scenes are all working from home and would be delighted to hear from you via web chat or e-mail. Connect with us anytime with any queries that you may have and let's discuss your home interior design project remotely. Mail us at [email protected]


While we are unfortunately prevented from being able to delivery during the lockdown period; with our delivery teams will be adhering to WHO safety protocol and going the extra mile to keep our facilities and vehicles clean and sanitised, we have put all the necessary measures in place for our teams to resume deliveries the moment government permission is granted. While these times are unprecedented and circumstances are fluid, we also know this is temporary. Thank you to our incredible Sofacompany family for their commitment to serving our customers. We are inspired to see our people and communities come together. Please take care of yourself, your families and the ones you love. We look forward to serving you and seeing you again in our showrooms very soon.

Batten down the hatches and create the ultimate Cocooning Experiences

Date: 17. Mar 2020

We find ourselves in strange and unfamiliar times. The world has gone into lock-down safety mode with a viral outbreak, creating fragmented and uncomfortable experiences for all of us. People find themselves in panic-mode as they stock up on sanitisers & toilet paper due to the constant information overload that is streamed 'at' us from every direction and at an alarming rate. The most confusing of all is that we are unsure as to what is fake news and what is factual these days.

But what if we subscribe to the philosophy that life is always working out, and that there's an interconnected intelligence far greater than any individual, and that a virus like one we're facing is here to reset us, and allow us to remember what's truly important.

Reconnecting with family and community | Reducing travel so that the environment, the skies, the air, our lungs all get a break | Parts of China are seeing blue sky and clouds for the first time in forever with the factories being shut down.

Working from home rather than commuting to work (less pollution, more personal time), and reconnecting with family as there is more time at home. An invitation to turn inwards, to reconnect with self — what is really important to me?

Hygge(pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah) is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone at home, with family or friends, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.

SofaCompany lives this hygge 'lifestyle' and suggest you do to:

1.Spend quality time with friends and family

2.Avoid multi-tasking

3.Remove stressors

4.Adapt, pivot and work more from home

5.Wear comfortable clothing

6.Bring the great outdoors indoors with plants

7.Soften and simplify your home with hygge decor

8.Designate a hygge nook

We recommend that you relax, breathe, stay positive and create happiness
