New White Slipcover Ikea Couches

We finally got our white Sofa & Loveseat from
Ikea this past week! We have been
wanting this set for quite some time now,
but we loved the couches we had & wanted to
do lots of research before we sold our set &
bought the new Ikea set.
Our first dilemma was that we do not live
right by an Ikea…
{The nearest one is Charlotte, NC which is about
4 hours away from us.}
After researching which would be cheaper, it
turned out that it is cheaper to order in the store &
have it shipped to your home, rather then to order them online
& have it shipped. We were taking a trip to
Charlotte anyways for Mr. LMB’s college baseball
game this past week, so we decided to go to Ikea while we were in
Charlotte. It was my first experience at Ikea.
Ikea is amazing, & I can’t believe it took me 24 years to get there!
After sitting on the couches & making our final decision,
we picked our couches out & had them sent to our house.
Shipping was so quick {5 days!!} & putting them
together when they arrived was very easy {Video of
us putting them together at the end of this post…}

I love them! I have not tried to get the wrinkles out yet, but
I do not mind them at all.. I think the wrinkles will fall out
with time & I might try steaming them to help them fall out.
In all the reviews I have read, I have learned that after washing them
& putting them on the couch when they are damp, the wrinkles fall
out very nice.


The one thing I was surprised about when we got the couches set
up was how short the sofa & loveseat were compared to other couches.
I was a little taken back at first, but now I can’t even tell the difference.

 I still need a rug, but I did finally pick one!! Ordering
soon.. It only took me 2 years to finally pick the right one haha

  I really love our Media center, the shape & storage are amazing,
but the paint finish will be changing very soon.

 & that chair you ask? Well, I blogged about it before {here}
but in short… It’s a chair I purchased off of craigslist
& bought an Ikea slipcover off of ebay to put on it..
yup.. I cheated a little.. but it still fits in perfect :)

 You can see the changes we are making to our living room post
{here} & I am very happy with our progress & enjoying the
ride of all the changes…

What I love about the couches….

– Washable slipcovers
-Very comfortable
-Replacement slipcovers are only $49.99!
-The white goes with everything
-They are pretty much my dream couches

We set up my computer in the living room while we assembled the
couches & recorded all of the fun… Here is the 45 minutes of us
putting the couches together… don’t worry it’s only 5 minutes long 😉
Don’t mind us staring at the TV in the background, It was opening
day for the Detroit Tigers.. we are pretty big fans haha…
Enjoy!!

  1. I am thinking of getting the Ikea Ektorp sofa and loveseat. I’m not sure if they will fit comfortably in our narrow living room 16 3″ by 12 2″. What are the dimensions of your living room? You have lots of room, they look very nice!

  2. Hi Liz Marie, did you choose the Stenasa White color or the Vittaryd white? I am thinking of going and get this sofa too. Not decided about the two different white colors yet. Thank you!

    • Hi! I am also curious about the differences between the two white colors! Which is the one you purchased and which is machine washable? Vittaryd or Stenassa?? Thank you!

      • I’m also curious if the Vittaryd White is actually white. I can’t get any of these blog owners that have posted reviews about the Ektorp furniture to answer.

        • Just purchased Ektorp sofa and armchair in Vittaryd white. I love them and I describe the color as snow white…I hope this helps…Now, if anyone has tips on washing and drying these, I’d love to know!

  3. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
