Buyer bewareI chose this couch (and loveseat) because of the design and washable covers.
This is one of the few couches that isn't "dry clean only". With kids, you need washable covers (spills, potty training, sickness).
**Beware** you have to disassemble the couch to wash the arm covers. *** They will need to be washed because the arms are flat and wide and often used as another seat (which has been fine so far for us, as it's clearly strong enough)
The cushion covers come off easily enough. The cushions do slide out, and I find myself pushing them back in place every other day or so. It's not a huge deal, they don't slide off the couch, just hang over a couple of inches and the back cushion subsequently falls lower, behind where the back cushion should be and then sags a bit in the middle.
Overall, these couches work for our season of life (kids are 8, 6.5, 5.5, 4, 21 months and 3.5 months). I do wish I got a darker cover, so I don't have to wash as often. The isunda grey cover needed washing after 2 months, and that was just from regular wear, and no spills. It does show dirt. Also, Maybe I should have gotten a couch with a cover that can be removed completely without disassembling the couch. I wish IKEA specified that in the description/ further info. I can see the chance of losing some of the bolts and washers while the cover is in the wash (lay flat dry, no dryer). Hoping the kids don't find them and run off with them.

awesome couch but...we have this couch for a year now, very sturdy, nice comfy support for the buttocks but the back cushion is too bulky. It should have been a little bit thinner. One more thing, my husband and I are the only people who uses this couch but the fabric kinda looks like a rug now after having it for a few months, it started to wear out.

Kivik Chaise and ChairI purchased 2 chaise lounges and 2 individual chairs 4 yrs ago but did not purchase any arms. Modular pieces I can switch around are just what I needed . Since no sofas would fit in my small home 2 arm less seats side by side are a sensible option. The fabric which never wrinkles was the most expensive KIVIK fabric cover at the time - a mix of wool & linen. 3 different fabrics at varying prices in a selection of trendy colours which change every couple of years is a great option to change things up a bit.

Bought this a few months ago along with the loveseat - is great for our family. Washable covers are the way to go when you've got a baby!
Comfortable, especially for the price. Drawback is the unsecured cushions move around and get wrinkly.
