Ikea’s Ektorp sofa is the newest addition to the sunroom! Since we live 5 hours from the closest Ikea, I ordered though Blue Bag in New Orleans. They charged $100 for shipping versus $330 that Ikea was going to charge. We still have a 2 hour drive to New Orleans but we just made a day of it and enjoyed ourselves!
It came in two boxes and fit in the back of our extended Trailblazer.
The sofa itself came in one big box. You can see the seat cushions above and the cushions for the back were vacuum packed. The slipcover came in a small box. We had to assemble the sofa but it was super easy. It took us about 20-30 minutes from start to finish including the slipcover. I had read about others having a hard time getting them on but we didn’t have a problem at all.
On the way home, we stopped at Pottery Barn and cashed in my gift cards from Christmas! I chose the ticking stripe and Inspire pillows.
A couple of months I found this knitted throw at Dirt Cheap. Instead of paying about $80 at Pottery Barn, I paid $5!
The Inspire pillow is prettier that it looks on the website. The website picture didn’t clearly show the different blues used in the writing.
Did I mention that I LOVE my new sofa? I do and the price was fantastic! I’m just hoping that it holds up well. I’ll keep you posted!
