Ikea Ektorp Sofa Makeover with Comfort Works

Ive got a pink sofa!!! Well, it was only a matter of time wasnt it? and the great thing is, this isnt even a new sofa, its my old Ikea Ektorp given a fabulous velvet pink makeover, I was contacted by the lovely people over at Comfort Works to style their Pale Pink Velvet sofa cover, ermmm the words, Pink & Sofa in the same sentence?..hell yes! I may have spent way more time than I ought too just running my hands over the fabric, its so luxurious and soft and I couldnt wait to snuggle up on it. I had 2 options regarding fit, I could go with Skirted like my old sofa cover or the Snug fit, I went with Snug to show off the the shape of the sofa and give it a more modern look.

So here’s my sofa before with the old Ikea slipcover, as you can see the snug fit has really transformed the look of the sofa.

Comfort Works make Replacement Sofa Covers for Ikea, Pottery Barn and Muji sofas and chairs, if your sofa isnt in any of those categories, no problem! you can choose the custom service and have a slipcover tailored to your specifications and browse through the many fabric options available.

The cover I have for my Ektorp 2 seater sofa is Rouge Blush, a beautiful pale pink which is sure to soften your living area and give that luxury edge with the plush velvet fabric.

I styled the sofa simply by adding a couple of geometric cushions and fur rug, I wanted to see as much of the sofa as possible, its far too gorgeous to be overloaded with too many soft accessories.

My boy Reggie is clearly a fan, though im not sure if he’s licking his lips at the cupcakes or the pure enjoyment of having his fluffy butt on a velvet sofa. Whatever it is, it took me a while to coax him off it ♥  So if your tired of your old Sofa but you dont want the hassle and expense of buying a new one, pop over to Comfort Works and check out their slip covers, its all done online, the ordering process couldnt be easier and you could have your new look sofa in no time, for further Slip Cover Inspriration check out their Instagram
