Love my Ektorp


Had my first Ektorp 10 years but wasn't aware of feathered cushions when first purchased being vegan so replaced lounge with new Ektorp sofa with foam cushions. Nothing wrong with first one using washable white and grey covers alternating. Sofa I have now is a few years old and is the most comfortable lounge ever as to why I purchased second one About to move house went sofa hunting and Ektorp still the king of castle so decided to keep. Also great for lying down as well. May update to Ektorp modular for a modern look perhaps......

Absolutely Love!

Utter rubbish


We bought this sofa 10 years ago but it was in the a room where it was rarely used. We moved it into the main lounge three months ago and it has literally fallen to bits: there’s only two of us and it’s only occasionally sat on in the evening. Made of particle board and soft wood it was never built to last. So it’s off to somewhere else for a replacement; I will never buy ikea again. It is cheap rubbish.

Ektorp sofa cover is made of very cheap material and is getting pills (little material balls) all ov


I love my Ektorp sofa but I am very disappointed in the fabric. It is cheap and looks terrible already. I've only owned the couch for a few months and live alone so it's not getting much use. Pills are developing all over it....careful about buying this product.

Please read this review before you part with your money


My Ektorp two seat sofa was six years old and I decided to upgrade to a three seat sofa. Unfortunately, I gave my two seat sofa to charity but now wish I had kept hold of it. The three seat sofa I bought only three weeks ago is vastly different in quality to my old sofa. The cushions are SO uncomfortable, the cushions are so thin giving no support at the back and therefore since I had it assembled only a week ago, I have endured constant backache. How IKEA have let people down due to them cutting corners for profit and providing a sofa that is not at all comfortable. How the quality has changed in the last six years.

15 year on it's still a great sofa


I purchased a 3 seater Ektorp sofa in 2004. I bought 2 sets of removable covers in white. This meant I could bleach a whole set (in the bath) when the kids spilt stuff on them, while having the other set on the couch. It's big enough to lie down on and the cushions are only just starting to lose their shape.
It's the perfect soft for a young family - you can upgrade when the kids leave home.

Top quality


The Ektorp armchair and sofas are superb quality and great value for money. Comfortable and durable. You can remove the covers for washing or even buy new covers. The are also stylish.

Low grade cushions decompose. Squeaks in the middle


Bad cheap cushions after 1 year have perished. Squeaks in middle seat. Cheap sofa, called ikea, they sent someone to look. He took photos, agreed there was a problem. Next day ikea called said because i lost the receipt i should shut up. Very rude and unapologetic or sympathetic. Shame on the business ethics code for repeat business.

3 seater chase and 2.5 seater


Purchased in July.
Now November and the cushions are completely flat.
Disappointing considering the chase was 900 dollars and the 2.5 seater was 6/700.
Washable covers are the only positive

Date PurchasedJul 2016



bought an ektorp sofa bed, the bit at the front under the cushions which hides the metal bed frame from view won't stay in place, as soon as you sit on the sofa it falls apart under your weight revealing the bed.

Hi, I have the ektorp corner sofa. I seem to remember being told when I bought it that you could buy a bed-part, that would turn it into a sofa bed as well. It would be stored under the sofa I believe, and the pulled out when needed. Is that still possible to buy, can't seem to find it anywhere. Thank you, regards Anna.
