New material looks cheapKathrynIKEA changed the material from mostly cotton to mostly polyester and its looks much cheaper looking.
Great Couch!Marthacomfortable, sturdy, all around super buy
Hallarp Beige Cover Is HorribleHenryThe Hallarp Cover is completely bally and ruined after minimal use, practically since getting it. DO Not Buy the HALLARP BEIGE. This is a waste of money. It is hard to believe that such a big company would produce such a bad product.
Uppland SofasSusanThe couches were easy to put together. The slipcovers were not. Because the covers are so tight, they appear to be ill-fitted and too small. I've been told they loosen up as cushions settle in but I'm skeptical. Wish they made slipcovers for Uppland sofas in stretchier fabric or looser in design.
Fabric requestAdamIkea, can you please provide the fabric from the Ektorpt sofa cover—Lofaleet Beige— for the Uppland sofa covers? I have 1 Ektorp and 2 Upplands and would love to put the Lofaleet Beige cover on my Uppland sofas!
Uppland chairJudiI love it. So happy with my purchase.
Itchy and low qualitySusanI’m so disappointed with these UPPLAND covers. I’ve always had the nice cotton Ektorp cover and loved them. I have the gray, which is like polyester with a horrible feel to it. Hate it, not soft at all. I also have the white one which is not stark white like the Ektorp one, but it looks like a white that’s been sitting around for a long time and yellowed. The fabric is more like a cotton though, so it’s better than the gray. Like so many others, I wish they kept the Ektorp sofa and covers.
Upland sofaDon B.Nice soft couch.
Great productJayeLove my Uppland sofa. Being able to remove the soiled cover and put a new one on is very convenient
Slipcover is awfulNoreenLongtime IKEA fan, replaced our Ektorps with 2 Upplands. They’re comfy enough, but the quality of the slipcover fabric is very lacking. Pilly, gets thread pulls easily, and the seat cushions can’t be flipped because they used a less expensive fabric on the bottoms. Really not up to IKEA’s usual quality.
Upland coverDeborahI bought this Uppland Couch because I really Liked my Friends that she has. I am disappointed that my two covers I ordered isn’t like the one she has. My covers are more rough (like outdoor material) and VERY WRINKLY, so I am hoping IKEA will bring back the older material (like what’s on my friends Uppland Couch) so I will REALLY LOVE THIS COUCH! I am going to make do with it in hopes IKEA will see all of these complaints and do the right thing by getting the other covers back in. It’s very cozy to lay on except the roughness of the cover. I do love it because I have two cats and I can wash when needed. I have washed my covers and dried and Ironed them AND STILL WRINKLY!!!!
Big Bang for your buck!!Emily A.I had been hemming and hawing about buying 2 couches for many thousands of dollars that I knew would get dirty and worn out quickly with all the family/traffic in our home. Also, many of the couches I was considering had months of lead time and I really wanted my couches NOW. I thought Ikea couches looked and felt good in the store but I was hesitant that they wouldn't be too good given the vastly lower price than all the other couches we were considering.
Well, I went and picked up 2 of the Uppland couches with white slipcovers and hauled them home with my 16 year old's help. I hired a fantastic task rabbit guy to set them up and VOILA!! my living room is now perfect. I'm sitting on the couch as I type this review and I'm 100% thrilled with these couches. I think I will buy an extra set of slipcovers, either another set of white, or many a different color for fun. Run don't walk, to get your Uppland couches!! The Uppland chair looks really nice too!!
Terrible coversJaimeI’ve had many Ektorp sofas over time so was disappointed to see it discontinued. This is a reasonable replacement and the quality of the sofa is fine but these covers are terrible. It looks like cheap outdoor fabric. It pulls so easily and it takes forever to press it. I made the mistake of washing it (nothing comes out when you wash and then you have to press it again and again and it just looks like a wrinkled sloppy mess). The material of the cover not only looks cheap and ugly but it’s not soft to sit on. If IKEA could just change the fabric back to what they had with Ektorp covers, this would be great. Until then this is just junk. I wish I never bought this. If you are considering buying this, you may want to look at the covers in store first as the online photos are very deceiving. I thought I was getting a taupe color that was solid but whatever this cover is is just not that.
A Dream Come TrueFranComfy, cozy and washable. Perfect for kids and dogs. Good looking and practical. I bought two Uppland couches, one armchair and one ottoman. Will probably buy a second ottoman. Highly recommend.
Solid CoverPamHave a 40+ year old great quality sofa that needed a new cover. Looked at measurements for Uppland and seemed close. They fit GREAT!!! Guessing that they will need to be washed in cold water to avoid shrinkage. Have no idea how long they will last since these are new and I have a dog.
Doesn’t fit!!HeatherThe slipcover does not fit the couch! It’s not even close 😩 For the love of God, PLEASE bring back the Ektorp!!!!
Uppland covers pill horriblyCathyI had my Uppland couch for under a year and the polyester cover looks 10 years old. It is very pilled on the seat covers, very disappointing. Couch is great, make canvas or denim covers that last, please! My Ektorp covers that are 10+ years old look much better than the one year old Uppland.
100% Poly Just Isn’t Good QualityKimberlyThis cover was faded and pilling after just two washes, and also holds onto lint and hair terribly. We truly had to toss it in the garbage. Definitely not the quality of the cotton covers. I so wish Ikea would release some NEW cotton print covers as the red one is just not very current.
Fits well but low quality fabricAzaleaI'm not sure if we just got a defunct set, or if it's the specific color, or if in general the quality has dropped across the board. This cover hasn't even been on our furniture for a week and it's already covered in little pulls/loops on the fabric just from occasional use. Like the pocket on denim pants catching on the fabric. It's a super loose weave and just generally very disappointing.
Love the colorAbbyI absolutely love the color but unfortunately it doesn't cover my entire couch. I really just needed cushion covers but I will still use it since I paid for it
