Koala Studios: 10 Koala Studio Design Advantages

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

 

1. Assembled in the USA

 

About Koala Studios

All Koala Studios are assembled by American Craftsmen in the USA. They are beautiful in their design and appearance and are built with the best materials and utmost care, providing a lifetime of enjoyment.

 

2. Rounded Beveled Edges

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios feature rounded corners and beveled edges, enhancing the Studio’s appearance and eliminating corners that snag fabric.

To achieve this, each board is precisely shaped with a computer-controlled diamond tip router, eliminating the need for saws that leave sharp edges.

To incorporate this advanced design features, the wood core must be made from a dense, high-grade 3/4-inch fiberboard with no imperfections.

 

3. Rich Elegant Veneer

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios are available in eight elegant finishes and will enhance any decor.

Each studio is finished in the same rich veneer and color inside and out and top to bottom, making it as beautiful opened as it is closed.

The veneer is applied through an advanced process called thermo-forming, which encapsulates the entire board and eliminates the need for edge banding.

The finish is a thick vinyl veneer that is hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, water-resistant, and easy to clean.

 

4. Remote controlled G3 Electric Glide Lift

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios’ innovative lift design enables the operator to effortlessly position their machine at any level with the push of a button. The user has a choice between a hand-held remote control and a built-in toggle switch.

The Koala G2 Lift has been designed to support all machines and provide a stable platform at every position. Two solid rails extend the full length of the lift platform, and the direct drive rack and pinion system moves your machine smoothly and quietly.

For the largest, heaviest machines, Koala’s optional G3 XL Lift provides extra space and support. The XL Lift is available on several studio models.

 

5. Large Capacity Full-Extension Drawers

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios feature full-extension drawers that glide open and close softly. The silent soft-closing hydraulic cushion makes the drawers impossible to slam.

The 5/8-inch framed drawer boxes combined with the steel drawer glides are weight tested to hold up to 120lbs. fully extended.

 

6. Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors- Notion & Fabric Palettes

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios provide flexibility to minimize or maximize the Studio’s designated space by using or removing the Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors.

If space is minimal, the doors can be folded flush to the sides of the Studio, or the doors can be easily removed.

If room permits, usable surface space or storage can be added to the left or right by attaching Notion & Fabric Palettes to the weight-bearing doors.

The Palettes can be positioned withing a 270-degree radius, providing usable surface areas where needed to support a variety of projects.

All studios are designed to pair together and if needed, the Bi-Fold Doors can be removed and stored.

 

7. Customizable Options in Width & Height

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios based models are built in widths of 27, 36, 53, and 70 inches. Each model’s footprint can be minimized or maximized depending on the Studio’s designated space.

Choosing the ergonomically-correct height of a Studio is a personal decision based on the individual’s desire to create while sitting, standing, or both. Koala Studios have options in heights of 29 1/4, 32 1/4, 35 1/4, and 38 1/4 inches.

At 35 1/4 and 38 1/4 inches, Koala Studios can be used comfortably while standing for cutting and placement of fabric. The taller height studios can also be used comfortably while sitting with the adjustable Foot-Control Rest and adjustable Koala Sew Comfort Chair.

 

8. Customizable Options in Shelving, Storage & Accessories

 

About Koala Studios

The surface and storage areas of your Studio can be maximized with an outback leaf extension, outback shelves and storage boxes. This is ideal when the Studio is positioned toward the center of the room, allowing access from every side.

A custom matching machine insert allows the Studio to be used by any brand or model of machine and enables the fabric to glide over the Studio surface.

 

9. Top Drawer Delivery

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios Top Drawer Delivery Service is a premium in-home delivery option that delivers the Studio into the owner’s home and room of their choice. The Studio arrives assembled and after the delivery team positions it, the owner only needs to attache their palettes, adjustable shelves, and accessories.

    I have a 20 year old Koala cabinet that I love! It has a roll out cabinet on the right side with a surface area that I use for my serger. The casters have all fallen out of the bottom of the cabinet, plut I have lost one of them, somehow. How do I purchase another caster, and any suggestion for getting the cabinet repaired. Thank you.

    My husband and I purchased a Koala Dualmate Plus IV June 21, 2018. It was purchased through Sierra Sewing Center at a quilt show held at the Reno Convention Center. Gladys Tan was the Koala representative at the show. I was looking for a cabinet for my Janome Horizon 15000. When I saw the Dualmate Plus IV I was impressed since the rep. said it would hold my Janome and my serger, and I’d be able to store my embroidery hoops in the cabinet, too. The product was delivered September 20th.

    I have not been thrilled with this purchase since it was delivered. It is basically a very large furniture piece that holds my machines. I had asked Gladys if the space between the footwells could be used to store my hoops. Gladys assured me this could be done and wrote it out on the order form. At NO TIME did Gladys tell me I would need a taller cabinet than the one I was looking at. That would not have been a problem. (The hoops for my sewing/embroidery machine are much larger than any Baby Lock hoops.)

    When my initial inserts arrived (lucite inserts) the insert for the sewing machine did not fit my cabinet with the Janome in place. Eventually the cabinet matching inserts arrived and they fit around my machines. However, neither insert is worth the $99.99 I paid for the large insert and the $74.50 I paid for the serger insert, and the $198.99 I paid for the embroidery hoop set up is not right since the cabinet does not accommodate my hoops at all.

    Please let me know how these items can be returned and a refund of the $373.47 for these items will be processed.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Sincerely, Jill ingram

    I need a replacement top for my Koala Cabinet. I called once and was told that it would cost 100$ plus shipping. Can you advise me on how to get this ordered?

      The caster wheels on my Koala cabinet are bound up with hair and thread. I have pulled out as much as I can with tweezers, but there is still some caught up in the axle. Some of the wheels do not move freely.

      How do I take the casters apart?

    I purchased an Ash white Artisan collection cabinet on 9/5/18 from Lakeshore Sewing, Wyoming MI. I have a Pfaff Creative Sensation Pro sewing machine. How is it 6 MONTHS LATER. I am STILL waiting for my matching wood insert that I paid 199.00 for????
    I always thought Koala cabinets would have top of the line customer service? THAT HAS NOT BEEN MY EXPERIENCE, and no one can tell me when I will get it. I spent 4,000.00 plus for this cabinet and would like my matching insert. I was sent an Acrylic Sew Steady insert until I can get the one I ordered, but no knows when that will be?
    I am beyond upset and would like an answer!
    Please contact me with a solution
    Thank you

    I purchased a Koala cabinet 14 yrs ago (I don’t think you make this anymore) it is the Quiltmate 111 serial number 608110 it has 2 slide drawers on the left side my problem is that one of the little screws that holds the “slider” to the drawer broke or came loose and got lost (they are soo small) I would like to see about a replacement screw? I have checked all hardware store and they do not carry anything that small.

    I have a Koala (I think) Quilters Delight cabinet. It has the number 432514 on a plate on the inside of the cabinet. Can you confirm that this is a Koala cabinet and if so how or whereI can get a insert for the cabinet to fit a Bernina 1030 sewing machine. Thanks in advance
