A Floral Velvet Ektorp Love seat and Chaise lounge | Comfort Works

Remember our  UPCYCLE YOUR SOFA COMPETITION? Well, Viki is our grand prize winner and this was her Ektorp 2 seater, chaise lounge ! Viki pleads;

UPCYCLE MY SOFA COMFORT WORKS! Two years ago we bought a lovely white IKEA sofa…NOT a great idea when you have young kids :p To cover hundreds of stains we drew all over it We REALLY need a new slipcover 🙂

Nature can be one of the best places to find color inspiration, and fall is is a great time to look for it. Rich reds, golden yellows, and deep greens are everywhere. Viki, a fashion and graphic designer, choose from our premium Augustine Range , a lush, bold velvet for her Comfort Works slipcover.

 

Here are the results:

What brings you joy in your home? How do you keep it fresh? Where do you keep the objects that speak to you and bring comfort?For Viki and her 5 year old daughter’s artworks, we’ve actually upcycled her OLD Ektorp covers into cushion covers. That way, the art work wouldn’t go to waste and will forever be on display!

 

 

Isn’t it amazing when something comes together perfectly? We have done some bolster cushions for her other drawings, so fingers-crossed, pictures will be up soon.

On another note-Do your find your kids drawing on your sofas? What do you do when “accidents” happen on your slipcovers? How do you get a stain of your sofa? Are you a fan of white slipcovers , only because you can bleach it? We’ll love to hear from you 😉
