Hi Lauren, I think you’d have a hard time combining the loveseat/chaise with the sectional just because of the arms. I’m thinking it would look awkward. The slipcovers fit because we bought the slipcover for the loveseat/chaise not the one for the regular sofa. You can’t tell in IKEA’s picture, but the slipcover for the loveseat/chaise has a continuous skirt all the way across the front that doesn’t stop in the spot where the chaise would normally be.
ReCover your sofa with a beautiful replacement cover for your discontinued IKEA sofa. Our custom sofa covers are kids & pet friendly, with 2 year guarantee. We build replacement covers for many current and discontinued IKEA sofa models. Our beautiful slipcovers are all handmade, machine washable and super durable with a minimum of 25,000 rub counts. Choose from a selection of premium linens, 100% cottons, natural blends, heavy duty, soft velvet and our bycast leathers - whatever floats your boat. You might want to get fabric samples first! Don't see your sofa in the list? We can build one from scratch; click: Custom Sofa Slipcover
I found this review on pinterest and am so glad I was looking for Ektorp Sofa. We are about to purchase two loves seats this weekend, and my husband is quite unsure about it. He loves the ugly one that we have, but I hate it! I have been trying to convince him that with the dogs, a sofa from Ikea is the best way to go. I spent over $100 on a Surefit Slip cover, and it just does’t fit properly on our sofa, and it always gets mussed when w sit on the sofa. Witht he Ektorp, we don’t have to worry about the slip cover not fitting. And because we have dogs–who are ALWAYS on the sofa (they are family afterall), I was glad to hear that the covers still look good with dog slobber and whatever else bring to the sofa. We are getting the white because I want a bright living room. Everything is so dark right now and its depressing. Fantastic review! I wrote down some of your pros & cons so that I can work my magic on hubby
dear liz, i just discovered your blog and it’s beautiful. thank you for sending it out into the world! regarding the ikea slipcovered furniture, you may not know that there is a firm in sweden (established by an american lady) which creates slipcovers for many, many pieces of ikea furniture. it’s called bemz.com. you just fill in the ikea name of the furniture item, and then there is a visualizer so you can see each of the many fabrics (heaps! patterns and plains) as if they’re on that furniture. so far i’ve purchased a badalen headboard cover. it arrived promptly (all the way to australia) and the quality is good. more pros = they send free fabric samples AND will make up slipcovers for many of ikea’s discontinued pieces as well.
Love this idea. I can’t find this information anywhere online and I’m four hours away from an Ikea store. Is there any way you could tell me the seating length? I know the exterior measurements are around 96″ long, but how much actual space do you have for bottoms? I want to go with the Ektorp loveseat/chaise for our smallish living room, but some in my family of five are concerned it will be a tight squeeze compared to some bulkier and less timeless (to me) options like Kivik. I especially love the idea of removing the chaise attachment if I get tired of it!
This is so very clever I have the same sofa and having just moved into a cottage the chaise style doesn’t fit well with the room, I was planning to sell it and buy the normal 3 seater, I love the Ektorp range for style and comfort and the ability to buy a new set of slip covers and of course they wash soooooo well in the machine. We have 2 sets of covers as with several spoiled indoor cats I need something I can wash when they get too furry. I can wait to try this and what is great is the choice to recreate the chaise if I move everything around. We also have a single Ektorp chair and footstool which I have used next to my fireplace to create a big cosy reading/relaxing spot…..well that was the plan, it’s become a giant cat bed for 6 cats to snooze now
What a great idea! I would never have thought of it which, is why I love Pinterest. After shopping around and putting our backsides on a number of sofas we continued to return to Ikea and the Ektorp sofa series. It was always the one we were drawn back to because of it’s style, cozy look and size. The depth was perfect for those of us a bit shorter in stature! Purchased both units and the covers in a brown during Ikea’s buy one and get the other for 1/2 price. Moved them to our retirement home and love them. Now the search is on for a sofa bed for our narrow den.Enjoy,

Great review Liz! I am also an Ektorp owner….I have the sofa with chaise and a chair with ottoman in medium brown. I also have the white slipcovers but I haven’t used them yet. We’ve had them for about 4 years now. I like the look, the fact that I can wash & change slipcovers, and the price was great. They have held up well and I have 3 kids! It’s kind of ironic that I came across this post earlier today because my 6yr. old daughter vomited all over herself, the middle seat couch cushion, and her sister’s foot. As I type this I am washing the slipcover. Ugh! So not what I planned for my cozy Friday night!! Really it’s the best furniture to have with kids and pets. It makes me think back about a year ago to when my son literally emptied his bladder on the couch after falling asleep during a movie. I would definitely buy an Ektorp again but I do have a few Cons to add….for some reason the seat cushions constantly slip forward and have to be fixed, limited slipcover colors available, discontinuing slipcovers so if you need a replacement you’re SOL, and non-existent IKEA customer service if you have a problem. I enjoy following your blog and welcome back to Michigan.
Hi Liz, love,love,love your style and Blog! As you know from being a blogger the world is full of negative and insensitive people. Thankfully however there are also as many that are caring and encouraging. I try to always work on being the latter. My husband and I are in our 60’s and purchased the IKEA sofa in white last year and I love it!! We keep our only grandchild who is a VERY busy energetic 3 year old girl. We also have two very spoiled Shih Ztu’s. I so loved the sofa that I wanted to purchase a second before Christmas to provide additional seating. But……waited to late for delivery before Christmas so I located a used one on Craiglist. This sofa fell out of our truck onto the side of the road TWICE on the way home. (We finally tied it down after the second fall….who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks LOL) when we got it home the cover was grass stained and had road marks all over it and thread bare corners. Threw it in the wash with Oxyclean stain remover and it came completely CLEAN!! Flying out of the back of the truck did bend a bar in the frame and my hubby fixed that! I ordered the white covers immediately and they arrived on Christmas Eve!!! I would love to send you a picture. PS This gave us one of the best stories to share at Christmas. I pray for you and your sweet hubby to be blessed with the family you so desire.
Wow! This Ikea slipcover sofa review has been coming for almost 3 years now. Everyday I get questions about our slipcovered Ikea Ektorp sofas & whether or not we like them. I think I kept waiting to review them because I wanted a substantial amount of time with them before I gave my honest review. Before I get into the pros & cons I just want to say that I am obsessed with these couches. All of the pros outweigh the cons for sure for us. I purchased these when I was 23 years old & they allowed me to have the “Pottery Barn” look I wanted for less & I’m so thankful for that. 3 years later & 2 moves later these couches are still going strong & I’m actually sitting on them right now writing this post. We sit on these couches every single day & they still are like new. Please don’t mind these photos in our unfinished lower level living room. Ever since we have moved in two months ago we haven’t done too much to this space, & actually we just set the clock on that ledge & never centered or moved it so that will be changing soon too. But today, alas, it’s all about those sofas.
