IKEA sofas are tested to comply with strict standards for quality and durability as well as the highest standards for domestic use. They come with a minimum 10-year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship covering frames and cushions.
Finding the perfect sofa could be considered an art form. Size, material, color, upholstery, shape, accessories, and overall design – they all need to be considered. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a couch that doesn’t fit your space, match your overall interior, or is really uncomfortable. The choice can truly make or break the look and feel of an entire living room.
That’s why we have a wide selection of sofas, to make sure you can find your perfect piece of furniture. No matter if you’re on the lookout for a sectional, a sleeper sofa, an ottoman or accessories; you’re guaranteed to find it here. And to help you even further, we've put together a quick guide to assist you in your choice.
First you should consider what you’ll be using your sofa for. Without a clear purpose, it’ll be hard to make a well-founded decision. And a sofa isn’t something you’ll want to be changing anytime soon.
Is it to be an elegant centerpiece in a modern living room? Or a place where the entire family can gather for the Friday pizza dinner and movie marathons? Then you should be looking at the sectional sofas. That way, you can put together the pieces just how you prefer it, to make sure there’s enough room for everyone.
If you’re living in a smaller space, you might be considering a sleeper sofa. And you should! It’s the perfect solution to a tricky problem: it’s a chill place to hang out by day, and a soft and relaxing bed by night. Simply fold-out the mattress when it’s time to go to bed, and then tuck it away behind or below the cushions in the morning.
Wondering what to do with the cushions and duvet when you’re not using the sofa as a bed? No problem, get yourself a couch with a storage solution underneath, where you can place everything when you don’t need it.
Make sure to measure your room properly, so you can find a balance between your sofa and the rest of the furniture. You want the area to feel calm, not crowded because of the lack of space and air.
Here, you should also decide on the shape of the sofa. Do you have enough room for an L-shaped or a U-shaped sofa? Or should you opt for a rectangular 2- or 3-seater?
Once you’ve decided on the size and type of sofa, you need to choose a style to accompany the rest of the room and its interior. For example, if you’ve got a modern look going, get yourself a sofa that’s in the minimalist style. It’ll create a well-balanced impression.
But if you’re more of a bold type of person, why not try a patterned fabric? It could be the perfect addition to really make the room pop. And if you’re going for a complete look, don’t forget to match with beautiful curtains and nice, soft rugs.
