New Flexsteel Sofa on Cork Flooring?

Has anyone replaced their gaucho with another sofa on top of a floating floor...such as cork or bamboo. Do you anchor the new sofa to the floor...keeping in mind that the floor is to be a floating floor. Any luck getting a sofa from Flexsteel? We are in the planning stages and appreciate your thoughts. Thx!

Bob

Me too!

I'd also be very interested in replies to this question. The 'cork and sofa' plan is precisely what we've just recently decided to try.

I bought a red Flexsteel sofa for my Sovereign. We love it. You can see a pic of mine on my blog.

Regarding the floating floors, I don't have one yet. But I'm planning on installing one in a year or so. If I recall correctly, those who have installed a floating floor make their holes slightly larger to allow for floor movement. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Mike...I've heard about overdrilling as well; however, there is still the weight of the sofa/gaucho on the floating floor. I don't know how much the floor would be free to flex with weight on it. Maybe someone can weigh in with how they installed a floating floor under their sofa and how it has held up.

I would be interested in an answer to this also, come on people someone has installed a laminate floor is their Airstream. What did you do about the cabinets, go around or under them? What about the furniture, drill bigger holes for the screws? How much does a laminate floor move if laid length wise?
