Product details

10-year limited warranty. Read about the terms in the limited warranty brochure.

A yarn-dyed fabric with natural hints of flax that gives the cover a texture that both looks and feels crisp.

Pocket springs that follow your body. The big seat cushion and the generous dimensions make the sofa comfortable to sit on alone or with others - for as long as you like.

The cover is easy to keep clean since it is removable and can be machine washed.

The tall legs in solid wood make it easy to vacuum or reach toys and other things hiding under the sofa.

The velvet reflects light in a characteristic way which may make the color appear as if it changes.

Small fibers may appear on velvet. It happens naturally and they disappear over time and can also be removed with a lint roller.

Press marks that may appear on the velvet usually disappear in time. With your hand, you can gently stroke in the direction of the pile or use a clothes brush. You can also use the vacuum cleaner with the soft nozzle.

Didn’t live up to the hypeAmyI was so happy to see that our local IKEA had this sofa back in stock. I’d seen it posted on various decor blogs and loved the look and price compared to similar sofas from PB, RH, etc. Unfortunately, I’m not pleased with the cushions or cover. The back cushions are seriously lacking in filling. The instructions mention waiting a few days for them to expand- ours barely expanded and do not begin to fill the slipcover. There is little to no support and our less than one month old sofa looks years old and shabby. The bench cushion remains seriously wrinkled despite steaming, smoothing and anything else we could think of to try. You’ll definitely want a steamer if you decide to purchase. I consider returning mine on a daily basis,1
Comfy and EasyALEXANDRINAThe Farlov sofa is sturdy and easy to put together. The only update I would like to see is a little more space on the seat cushion cover to actually line up with the insert.4
Back cushions inadequateRosemarie S.We bought the sofa for its clean lines and large seating, it came highly recommended by friends, however it seems the small cushions as well as the back cushions have changed since they purchased this sofa in previous years. Theirs are great quality and fill out more, mine little pillows are cheap stuffing and so not even fill out the pillow cases. The back cushions laid flat in a room for 72+ hours as recommended and they are small as well and not great quality so obviously they have started to cheap out on this design. Sad as it’s a beautiful sofa but we are considering returning it and looking for more long term comfort as you cannot even buy additional inserts. The cover is also not super pet friendly as the previous sofa covers we’ve had from Ikea.3
back cushions now lackingGwynne W.I have bought 5 of these sofas. The first three were/are fantastic. I recently assembled 2 more of these sofas for my latest project and the back cushions are not nearly as supportive as the previous farlovs I have bought. I'm not sure if they have changed the manufacturer but I am now researching how to add stuffing to them. They are not nearly as comfortable and the back cushion seems quite thin. Bring back the old cushions.3
Wish They Still Sold The SectionalHeather W.Love the Farlov sectional. Finished out basement and wanted to get one. It's the comfiest couch and it's such a beautiful one that looks really upscale and expensive!5
Comfier and larger than expected!DianaThis couch exceeded my expectations! I love the velvet slipcover and the seat depth of the couch is super deep. It definitely gets comfier over time, but I've had some friends crash at my place and they swear that it's the comfiest couch they've ever slept on. I haven't tested that out yet, but I definitely would recommend it!5
FirmCharlieToo firm for my liking.3
MOST AMAZING COUCHAllisonY’all when I say this is the comfiest couch it really is. It’s the perfect size for my apartment living room and so easy to clean. Buy it now!5
Love it!PaulaI absolutely love my new Farlov Sofa. The material is a tad bit scratchy but not bad at all.5
Good sofaHilaryBUT the fabric is awful !! What's wrong with a plain cotton canvas slipcover instead of the weird stuff?4
Love itAnn S.I love my sofa. It’s a napping sofa. I’m 6 feet tall and it’s long and deep. Love it Can’t wait to get another slipcover.5
Best decision ever!Katherine R.This sofa, bought online, is the best! So comfortable, perfect for lounging and the velvety slip covers are great - and so far the cat has not been interested in using the arms as a scratching post. We had to hire someone to assemble it because the pieces are quite heavy.5
Comfy and WashableCouchSurferWe love Farlov for its size! My husband and I are both 6 feet tall and chose this couch for its ability to fit both of reclining comfortably. It has served us well as our primary seating to watch tv during the quarantine. The construction is solid, it’s built like a mattress; our cat destroyed the interior of our last couch while Farlov looks pretty much unchanged since we assembled it six months ago. This couch has a washable slipcover, which is a must for me. After the first wash essentially moved the dirt around I changed my strategy for wash #2. First I attacked the worst sections of the seat cushion with stain remover. I left it to soak in my washer (let it fill and then turn it off) in warm/hot water with Dr. Bronner’s. Five hours later I ran the wash cycle on the hottest setting with two Tide pods and a cap of Oxiclean White Revive in the bleach dispenser. The dirt stain is gone and the streaks of bleach are much less visible. If that sounds too arduous for you, you can replace the slipcover with something from Bemz or ComfortWorks!4
Great Sofaangie526Very well made and comfortable sofa, the shape makes it look high end for the price. My only complaint would be the selection of slipcovers. I wish they came in the same fabrics as the ektorp and some of the other styles. The fabric on the farlov is a little scratchy and the weave of it easily catches pet hair.4
Great value and styleSarah810We purchased two of the Farlov white sofas, a armchair and ottoman. They were appealing to us because the covers are all machine washable but they’re so much less expensive than restoration hardware or pottery barn. They arrived quickly but we had an issue with one of the couches not getting the ends and a slip cover. I contacted ikea and we received one within a few days! We love how deep the seating is, it allows plenty of room for other pillows and throws without having to take them off every single time you sit down like smaller couches. We love that we can wash them because we have dust and pet allergies so beyond the need to wash if they get dirty, we know they can be cleaned at any time to help with allergens. The covers are not the most comfortable but they sell replacement covers and different companies sell some to fit the farlov as well. Overall, we have had them almost a year and we love all of them. Pillows are still in great shape, cushions are in great shape too! We did have one pillow get a hole in it when the cover was off to be washed but that hasn’t caused an issue when taking the covers on and off at all.5
Best couch EVER!sarahpbI bought this couch in white, and when it arrived it was even better than I expected! It’s super cute and soooo comfortable, and it fits my shabby chic style. I opted to cover mine with bleached drop cloths bc we have dogs and kids. It looks amazing!!! It totally looks like a much more expensive couch, just like the ones in Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn (which I considered buying when I was looking at couches, but they were waaaay too much money) at a fraction of the price. I can’t recommend this couch any higher; it’s even better in person than it was online. We have gotten SO many compliments, and I would totally buy it again. Thanks, IKEA!5
Looks amazing for the pricePlanogalFor this price it looks amazing in the living room5
Only had 1 day - but SO SO happy with this.Lindsey3305I was worried about buying this sofa because of a few bad reviews here, but I couldn’t be happier with it. Assembly was easy if you followed the directions in the booklet and in the review in this thread about lining up the holes and snugging the bottles before making them super tight. Here are a few points: 1) Shape: just beautiful. Looks like Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn. The arms are lovely and the back is great. We have 9ft ceilings, and I love the scale of this sofa in the room. Not squatty looking at all. The seat cushion being one piece is so great. Nice to know nothing will get lost in the cracks 2) Depth: really like how deep it is. I’m 5’7”, and it’s fine for me. Just sitting on it without throw pillows, if my back is on the back of the sofa, my calves hit the front edge of the sofa (rather than the back of my knees). I’m a leg curler so I do not mind at all having extra space to cozy up to my husband and kids. The depth is so nice for nap taking. This sofa is the best!5
LOVE this sofa!farlovFanI bought a Farlov sofa for our living room and after two years, I bought a second for our TV room. Great quality. I like the deep seating because it’s cozy and allows for curling up. My husband and I and our two Irish Setters all pile up for movie night. We have the white cover and the slate velvet. I love them both. I highly recommend this sofa.5
Great SofaLindaR1140First off, we get lots of compliments on our sofa. Most people think this is a pottery barn or arhaus sofa. It is super comfortable. Works really well as a twin bed for guests as well. HERE is my biggest problem. We bought white for the style. We bought this one because you can wash it. NOPE do not wash it. It comes out wrinkled and with dirt circles I now cant seem to get out. So I will just once a year buy new covers. It is still worth it. We love the sofa. Just dont wash it. Which defeats it purpose.4

Our take on cotton

We use cotton in many of our products, from sofas and cushions to bed linen and mattresses. It is a soft, durable and renewable fiber that breathes and is good at absorbing moisture. All these great qualities make cotton one of our most important materials, but it isn’t without its challenges, much having to do with conventional farming methods that negatively impact the environment and poor working conditions for farmers. With our size and production volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry. By only using recycled cotton or cotton from more sustainable sources, working with partnerships and initiatives on the ground and prioritizing compliance, we believe that we can make a positive impact in the world of cotton.

100% cotton from more sustainable source

Since 2015, all cotton in IKEA products is either recycled or comes from more sustainable sources*. This means that we only source cotton grown using sustainable farming practices that reduce the use of fertilisers, pesticides and water, improve working conditions and earnings for farmers, and benefit ecosystem health and biodiversity conservation. We have set up a system that enables use to trace all our cotton and ensure that the final product is from approved, certified sources. *Cotton from more sustainable sources commits to the following schemes: Better Cotton (as defined by BCI, including their equivalence in various geographies), cotton from farmers working towards the BCI standard (TBC).

Working together to drive change

Each year, IKEA uses around 0.5 percent of all cotton grown around the world. This may not seem like a lot, but the number is big enough to drive change in the industry. For many years, we have been working with partners and stakeholders globally to transform conventional large-scale cotton farming and set social and environmental standards for cotton production. As an example, we helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who runs the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Today, more than 110,000 farmers have adopted more sustainable farming practices within IKEA projects.

Ensuring compliance throughout the value chain

All IKEA products are produced in accordance with the IKEA IWAY Standard, our Supplier Code of Conduct. It sets out the minimum environmental and social standards expected from our suppliers, including compliance with local laws. We do not accept any form of forced labor, child labor or treatments in breach of our supply chain requirements. Our cotton teams across the globe ensure that all cotton used in IKEA products meets the demands of compliance in our supply chain. By having teams on the ground in areas where it has previously been challenging to work responsibly, we can challenge the traditional ways of working and improve the industry. If we discover that we are acting in places where we cannot ensure our requirements are being met, we follow-up on the ground and drive change.

What is cotton?

Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibers. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and water.
