New Living Room Furniture
Finally. A new, beautiful sofa and a couple armchairs. I’ve been waiting a while to replace our living room furniture, and we finally pulled the trigger. I loved my old couch so so so much, but it just didn’t fit the look I was going for in our space anymore. I am super picky about couches. I think it’s mostly the fabric that I don’t love on most of them. I wanted something light, but not that would get dirty quickly, so slipcovered couches were the route we decided to take, and I am so pleased with the ones we chose!
Our new couches and armchairs are from the Ektorp line at Ikea. They have so many pretty choices in slipcover colors, but we went with the Lofallet Beige ones and they are so pretty! To be honest, I had some reservations before we bought them (were they too light, did the slipcovers wrinkle easily, were they big enough…etc), but I’ve heard how much other blogger friends of mine highly recommended them, and you guys, they are super affordable, so we gave them a shot. We’ve had them about a month, and I’ve got no complaints just yet! I think I’ll circle back around at some point and do a full review on them later, but for now, I think they will work pretty perfect for the farmhouse look I love.
What do you think? Do you like them?
Hello Ashley, You have Beautiful Collection of Sofa & Couches,
Informative Post, please keep updating it
I love your taste, maybe it’s because it’s the same as mine…lol…Anyway, I have been looking at the ektorp sofas online and I love them.! Could you tell me is that the ektorp 3.5 or the original ektorp sofa? And are the seats on it deep enough? I also notice that the sofa looks so much better in your home than it does online which is nice to know. Thank you for taking the time she read my comment. I will definitely be following you from now on. Thank you so much for sharing!
What sizes and where are the frames from?!!
Hello! I’m curious…how has this held up in a years time? This is the exact style I wanted and it’s in our price range. My husband thinks ikea furniture doesn’t hold up well so I’m curious to know if you use this daily and if it’s held up well? Like the seats aren’t sinking and still look nice?
I’m interested in knowing about the frames as well. I find it awkward styling above a sofa but this looks fantastic!
Can you tell me what size frames you used above your couch? I love how that looks.
Your design style beautiful !!!! All room furniture is so lovely . Thanks for sharing
Everything is so lovely! We also have IKEA slip covered chairs and I adore them. Your pillows on your new couch look so inviting, would you mind sharing where they’re from?
Hello Ashley, You have beautiful sofa and couches. I love your room decoration. You have nicely decorated it. It is affordable and comfortable to sit. I really want same for my home. Thanks for sharing your blog.
Ashley, very pretty and love your crates around the room. The Magnolia wreath is a super touch
Beautiful! Would love to have that couch, yummy.
Ashley, your design style is beautiful. I am new to your site and have bookmarked you as a new favorite =) Thank you for sharing. I love the new sofa, half chair and ottoman.
My husband and I purchased the sofa, loveseat and armchair this weekend from Ikea in the lofallet beige and we love it as well! Like you said, it’s so affordable and the slipcovers make it so easy to clean and maintain! Love your living room style. 🙂
Hello Ashley, we have loved our Ektorp sofa for just over a year now, and everyone who sits on it remarks how comfy it is! The sofa is used daily. I have the white covers and was worried about how quickly they might look dirty. Aside from using a lint roller every other week, I have only needed to wash them twice so far! I’m amazed!! We are so happy that we are now looking at the sectional for our family room.
What I love most about your living room is the crate side tables you have made. I have pinned your plans and hope to make some of my own soon!
Have an awesome day 🙂
