The Manstad is probably the most practical sofa ever made by IKEA, though must say they're not exactly the most comfortable! i think IKEA came up with a new series called the friheten now

Get guys, check out this lady's method to refluff her Ektorp - she basically cut them open and reorganise the cushions inside, here's a link http://ittakestwoblog.com/fluffing-up-our-ikea-ektorp-sofa/

Have a very different experience with the Kivik, i got a pair of the chaise lounge for the TV room and they're extremely comfy; ok ok i have to admit they do 'sink' in a little bit after a few weeks, but we just rotate them around (yes, the zipper shows when rotated), but no biggie, we'll rotate them back again after few more weeks. Am now considering a velvet custom sofa slipcovers for the lounges from these Aussie guys.

I found some guys are selling the whole manstad sofa upholstery set these days, you won't have to DIY it it seems here's the youtube link i found www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndv2KePWbT4

Anyone ever tried it? seems easier to do than DIY every single piece?

Love the Stockholm couch, love the fact that IKEA does it smaller now compared to the monstrous 3.5 seater, too bad they don't do the grey velvet like this old IKEA ektorp http://prettypetals.typepad.com/prettypetals/2011/01/ikea-ektorp-sofa-comfort-works-velvet-slipcover-beautiful.html.

@fizzfizz i think the stockholm is considered the "premium line-up", but i'm totally with you where IKEA shouldn't be selling something 'premium' if everything else they sell is umm..for the lack of words.. inexpensive and lower quality?

Can't go wrong with the Ektorps, there's a good reason they've been the 2nd longest running sofa series after the Klippan. My advice is get 2 of those chaise lounge and put them together as a giant lounger and when winter comes, get a velvet slipcover like this lady did in her blog http://prettypetals.typepad.com/prettypetals/2011/01/ikea-ektorp-sofa-comfort-works-velvet-slipcover-beautiful.html its awesome!


Good Questions: Do IKEA Sofas Wear Well?

Great idea Fori, have you started doing the business yet?

I'm currently looking for a replacement for my Kramfors set, the old cover has officially bit the dust. And apparently ikea discontinued them like last month!!

I looked at Bemz but gosh it costs like 500US plus ship to SF?? I can get a whole new couch for that kind of money.

Raymie: any news on your cover with comfortworks?
