I Love Slipcovered Sofas!

Pin It Now!

I'm still loving my Ikea sofa that I've had for almost 2 years now!  Although I  love the white slipcovers I can now change it out to blue once in awhile! As you can see, they match my shutters perfectly!  Click here to go over to my product review page to hear (and see) more about these amazing slipcovers that were sent to me!

It's great to know that you are so happy with the sofa, Cindy! I have been thinking about buying the same one! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

Victoria said...

That looks so good, it looks like a beach cottage now with the blue and white!

Elsie said...

Cindy I have been looking for a new one also. I don't think I could have a white sofa, too many men in camouflage and mud, but I do
love yours and that is exactly what kind I would get. Thanks for
sharing, I going to check them out.

I agree, slipcovers are great. When we finally made the decision to buy our sofa I decided to get an extra color. Since that time the slipcovers have doubled in price so I am more than happy I did . I love your blue and white one. It looks great!

These are beautiful Cindy! I just did a post on space saving and frugal furniture called "Living With the Space You Have" and was promoting IKEA. There furniture is so streamlined, space saving, and can be frugal too. Really, their prices are so reasonable!

Their slip covered sofa is the best idea yet! I've recovered furniture but I haven't made a slip cover yet. I will though. The fabric yours is made of is so pretty!

Your ikea sofa looks great! We have looked at them but they seem small in the store, though it looks great in your home.~Cheers Kim

Sandy said...

I just got my new Ikea Sofa with the white slip but seeing your new blue striped I need to get another for a spare.. let me go see who gave yours free... I love it!

I love your sofa, Cindy, white or blue. Your style is perfection. Sooo inspiring.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hi! I looked on the IKEA website for your sofa. They have 3 different prices listed. Do you by any chance know what the difference is? Did you go buy it or have it shipped? Sorry about all the questions...I just love the way your room looks and I'm looking for a sofa. Best Regards...

I just love my Ikea sofa! How I wish it looked as good as yours though, with 2 kids & a dog it does get a little bit of wear. I have the white sofa but I throw a big quilt on it, which I take off for company.

I can't fathom paying close to the same price (as the sofa) for a slipcover at this moment, but it sure looks beautiful. I love the little accent pillows too :-)

Susan said...

Cindy your sofa looks wonderful! I love the blue slip cover!

NanaDiana said...

Cindy- It looks great. I can't believe how closely the color matches that of the shutters. LOVE the slipcovers...LOVE it~ Hugs- Diana

I love slipcovers too and have slipcovered sofas from Ikea. So easy to keep clean. In the machine, out on the line, a bit of an iron and you have sofas looking fresh as a daisy.
Have a great week,
Anne xx

How wonderful you sofa looks -- both ways!

Rachel said...

Love the color of the cover! So relaxing!

Bohemian said...

Very pretty Cindy... it makes me think of a lovely Seaside Cottage retreat!

Sarah said...

The slips look great! Fun to be able to change the sofa color on whim. ;-)

Elizabeth said...

Gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful. They remind me of the ocean and Summertime and Victoria Magazine. :)

I gave you an award on my blog, if you are interested. It is in today's post.

Take care,
Elizabeth

Connie said...

Dear Cindy,
I am not a blue person but your new slipcovers are simply awesome. The white ones look great but these blue ones are "icing on the cake" for a change. Thanks for sharing them.
Hugs,
Connie

I love that sofa and its versatility! Looks sooo cute in blue in your place Cindy! Vanna

I love my Mitchell Gold sofa and chairs with white slipcovers. However, I have been reading that that look is so 90's! I don't care, I plan to have and enjoy mine for many years to come. Does anyone else think they are outdated?

Junker Newbie Stephanie said...

So glad I saw this post today - this is the sofa I'm planning to buy in a couple weeks! I'm going to try it with the white cover for a while and see how it works (with a 4-year-old boy, hubby and dog!) but will probably get at least one other cover. thanks again for posting this!
