IKEA presents new KIVIK sofa range

Furniture giant IKEA has recently launched its new KIVIK sofa range. The Kivik series boast generous seating with a soft, deep seat and comfortable support for your back. The seat cushion is equipped with a top layer of memory foam, which is designed to mould to the precise contours of your body and regains its shape when you get up.

The KIVIK series boasts wide and low armrests with extra padding, which work both as extra seating and as comfortable support for your neck when you lie in your sofa. The sofa can be expanded with one or more chaises longues; removable armrests make it easy. Furthermore, the one-seat section can be used free-standing or together with additional one-seat sections or a chaise longue from the same series.
