Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review from a Dog Owner We have the green sectional version of this couch and have owned it for about 3 months. We bought this couch for a few reasons: 1) Our dogs (2 GSMD's; 100lb each) stained and tore our Restoration Hardware couch and we didn't want to buy another expensive couch that would just get ruined. 2) Before we owned the RH couch we had a KIVIK that stood up to the dogs, was quite comfortable, and looked great. I loved the fabric the KIVIK was upholstered in. 3) We needed a 'build your own' sectional option for our awkward space that wasn't available in the KIVIK and was much more expensive at other stores (Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, etc.). Pros: -Definitely cannot beat the price. -The green color is really beautiful and we've received so many compliments on it. I was worried the pictures online made it look better than it was but that was not the case. -Removable covers that are machine washable. -Replacement covers/pieces are not crazy expensive and definitely better than paying to reupholster a couch. - Designing your own configuration is nice and the tools on the website really easy to use. I also love that it gives you whatever dimensions you ask for. -The shipping was quick and the service they used for our area was very professional (we live in an area without an IKEA). Cons: -Cushions are very firm and not super comfortable. -The RH couch we owned before this was 40" deep and it's been an adjustment changing to the 26". -The fabric. This is definitely my biggest gripe. It shows and traps every. single. hair. The color is probably the culprit for showing hair/dust that accumulates on it but the fabric traps the hair and makes it really difficult to get out. Trust me when I say I tried every cheap option before finally breaking down and buying the dyson cordless. I can't even use the upholstery tool that came with the dyson- it requires the spinning brush which isn't good for the fabric either. There are couch protection covers you can buy but only in standard sizes and they are very expensive. I just bought a couple flokati rugs to cover it and hopefully that will be the fix. Conclusion: I would definitely buy this again if given the option. I love the color and being able to design my own was great for my really awkward space. BUT with the extra stuff we had to buy to make up for the fabric we maybe could've just spent the extra money on a more comfortable C&B sofa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I bought this for my basement with no idea exactly what it would be like. I was blown away. It was really easy to assemble it was very comfortable (certainly a little on the firm side but I like that) and despite having to be assembled it was very sturdy and the material to cover the couch was great quality as well. I just wanted a cheap couch for my basement but now it I may get one for the living room too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish, simple, convenient, & comfy LOVE how easy it is to purchase replacement cushions and cushion covers. It has a modern/traditional look. Very comfortable! My two year old son prefers to nap on this sofa instead of his bed. Had a slight concern about the cushions fitting into the cushion covers, had to switch them out a few times until I figured it out. I purchased the gray sofa, threw a bunch of colorful throw pillows on it and it’s gorgeous. It’s cushy, and durable at a price you can’t beat. Make sure you use steamer to iron out wrinkles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One cushion is different than others Great couch overall. Easy to assemble. But the one cushion is much smaller and softer than the other two. Not sure why, need to contact Ikea for more details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I bought this when it finally came back in stock. I thought it was going to be a pain to assemble but i was able to do it myself in about 5 hours and that is considering I had 2 kids running around and taking care of them. This couch is huge! My back cushions aren't as fluffy as i want them but i did get an email from ikea that they knew they were damaged in transport and they are sending replacements. I laid down and promptly fell asleep on it. I love that the covers are removable to keep the beige fabric clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am returning this couch ASAP I bought this couch and was very excited about it. Unfortunately my excitement stopped at the assembly of the couch. The holes did not line up and the screws I was able to line up made the couch look crooked and nothing like the picture. I was extremely disappointed and asked for a full refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Deep, Cushy IKEA Sofa The VIMLE Sofa from IKEA is, in my opinion, the best value sofa you can buy from IKEA. It's deeper and cushier than any of their other sofas, and it looks much more expensive than it is. I love the Gunnared Gray – it's a heathered gray fabric looks like it will hide dog hair pretty well and in the meantime looks crisp and trendy. Putting the sofa together took me (29-year-old female) about two and a half hours going at a very leisurely pace. It came in 12 packages and no one of the packages was too heavy for me to lift and handle. The instructions were fairly straightforward – the only thing that confused me was whether to put the fabric on the back portion of the sofa before putting it together (but I figured out that you put on the fabric afterward). I wish IKEA would let me upload an image of the finished product alongside my review – couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it Bought this last week and had it home delivered because it comes in 12 different packages. Spent yesterday putting it together - for the most part assembly was super easy btwn my husband and I (easier than expected for sure!) but did take an entire afternoon into early evening to do. Not a ton of building and it's all very simple - there were no instructions on attaching the arm rests but it was easy to figure out. My only really negative comment would be the back cushions.. they are much larger than the covers and came out very lumpy and uneven. Hoping over time this works out but felt really bummed that everything else came out perfect and then we had to throw lame cushions on top! We chose the beige cover and while it looks great and we love the texture, it's definitely a lot cooler than the images online. I would say this is actually a light grey couch, very silver toned. So far it's extremely firm, there's no sinking into this couch, but we did try a floor model out and it was a little softer so expecting this to break in over time. Overall, this couch is definitely worth the price and I would recommend it so long as you know what you are getting into!
