If you’ve been following for a while, you may know it was only this time last year that we bought our IKEA Norsborg sofa; the dark grey covers fitted in with our decor, I loved the mid-century/scandi style birch legs, and much as we love dresses with them the same, it had POCKETS. It fitted within our budget, so whilst the material wasn’t the most comfortable (not bad, either!), we loved it.
Fast forward to a year later, and it was looking a little different from it’s brand new condition. A few months into owning it, Ada found a red lipstick down one of said pockets and proceeded to draw all over one of the arms, which despite hours of scrubbing, still showed as an orange tinge. And after our kitchen/dining space being out of bounds for close to a month with the kitchen renovation, the sofa replaced that eating space, and ended up with one too many cheese triangle stains to mention.
So when Comfort Works offered to kit us out with some new Norsborg sofa covers, we jumped at the chance!
First up in the process was to receive some fabric samples; Comfort Works have a huge amount of replacement slipcovers and lots of different materials, but immediately I was drawn to the velvet blends. One of the samples we received was actually a pink velvet, although unsurprisingly Kane wasn’t too keen. There’s cotton blends, wool blends, linen blends or more heavy duty options.
After selecting our covers, 2-3 weeks later they arrived.
The covers arrived in a canvas bag, all attached with handy little labels marking which part of the sofa it’s for; it was easy to take the old covers off and quickly pop on the new ones. They are a really good fit too – not so tight that you’re having to force them in, but a nice tailored fit.
Comfort Works specialize in IKEA sofa covers, but also create covers for other sofa and designs. Even better, you can contact them with your sofa measurements and they can create a custom cover for you.
They also included something from their new range, the Noelle Knitted Throw that just fits in with the sofa so perfectly. I didn’t think I’d love my new covers quite as much as I do, they have completely transformed my living room and has made a massive difference to not only the look, but the comfort of my sofa – although it is a lot harder to peel myself off it in the evenings now!
I am absolutely thrilled with them, and how much more expensive does it make my sofa look?! It doesn’t look like IKEA any more, and definitely no more storing lipsticks in the pockets or cheese triangles allowed!
