My Favorite Slipcovered Sofa

I have to share one of my FAVORITE budget friendly finds!  The Ektorp Slipcovered collection from IKEA.

If you are like me, and like things that look great, wear well and are easy on the budget then you will love this.  Having a house filled with boys (and their friends) I did not want to spend a lot of money on my furniture knowing that in a few years no matter how much I spent it would most likely get trashed.  I took a chance on the Ektorp collection from Ikea.  The sofa looks very similar to many popular slipcovered sofa's on the market but at a fraction of the cost.

The slipcovers come in a heavy denim or a linen type material.  I have the khaki colored denim slipcover and have washed it several times.  It still looks great!  However, I do not put the slipcover in the dryer.  I always lay it out on the patio to dry.

 If you are not keen on the slipcovers Ikea offers you can check out Comfort Works or Bemz and order a custom cover.  These companies make slipcovers that fit all the Ikea furniture.  The styles range from a loose shabby chic cottage fit to a more tailored fit.

So, the bottom line.... After 3 years of use I still really like my Ektorp furniture.
Way to go Ikea!
