Everyone knows the Ektorp sofa. Pleated long-skirt, round arms, a classic look. Is it too dated and unfashionable? I say ‘Yes’, but it doesn’t have to be! But first…

But how?

With minimal work, that’s how. Simply obtain a set of customised slipcovers, or sofa covers for the non-US, for your Ektorp sofa. We are unashamedly the best (read: only) option for these custom slipcovers 😉

The covers will arrive at your door in a nice waterproof bag. Inside said bag will be both your covers and the other half of a velcro reel. Replace the loose covers with our tailored slipcovers and flip your sofa on its back. Grab a staple gun and staple the velcro to the underside of your Ektorp, you can adjust the placement of the velcro for a better fit if you wish.

We’ll have a nice video up for you soon on this – but in the mean time, here’s some additional shots of our snug fit Ektorp sofa covers in woollen Shire Rust!

Enough teasing, show us what it looks like

Sure thing! But first, let me remind me of what the standard Ektorp 3 seater sofa looks like when it’s fresh off the truck from IKEA.

And here comes the moneyshot.
