Kramfors Leather vs Kramfors Fabric Slipcover

Decisions decisions.

There are three types of options when it comes to slipcovering your Kramfors sofa : Fabric slipcover, Leather slipcover and Replacement seat slipcovers only. Which would you prefer?

Tired of your leather sofa during the cold winters?  The big advantage of a custom slipcover is that if you want to add seasonal looks and feel to your living space, fabric slipcovers are the easiest solution. As long at the fit is tailored, the look isn’t sloppy at all. Best of all– You don’t have to commit! You can get many different colours and textures and change the style of your room at a whim 

A fabric slipcover can also be used to protect your upholstered leather sofa and easily removed for laundering.  Fitting your slipcover is simple. Just think of it as putting on a jacket.

Pricing will depend on fabric preferences, with our Gaia 100% Cotton range sittin on the most affordable end of the scale. The fabric covers pictured above in the Nomad Grey .  Click here to get some free fabric samples

I have the fabric Kramfors version- Will a leather slipcover work?

If you have pets with a habit of shedding, a leather slipcover will be the best way to pet proof your sofa. A leather slipcover takes the worry out of living with light coloured fabrics since you can wipe clean  with a damp wash cloth when life happens. It also looks great in your husband’s den.

However, many people gasp at the cost of upholstering your sofa with leather. At Comfort Works we believe that you don’t have to sacrifice personal style because you are on a budget. Heres how:

At the time of writing, an upholstered leather sofa from IKEA would set you back $1,899 (Kivik Three seat Sofa). But if you opt for a Kivik Three Seat Sofa in fabric ($699 ), throw in a Leather Kivik slipcover from Comfort Works and you’ve got yourself a leather sofa for $1096. That’s a massive savings of $803, 42% cheaper than getting an upholstered sofa and 100% interchangeable between fabric and leather slipcovers 😉

If you are a little more savvy, there are plenty of  pre-loved IKEA sofas (or try the AS IS section of IKEA) where you can easily get 80% savings.

I have a Kramfors leather slipcover – Can I replace just the seat cushion?

Replacement leather seat cushion covers for the Kramfors are an option at Comfort Works. If you have the Kramfors Frasig leather version, our Urbanskin Kramfors leather should be a 95% match. Order a leather sample to see for yourself. For more information on our Urbanskin Kramfors, check out our previous blog post.

Please note, our standard leather slipcovers do not come with the baseball stitching as IKEA does. We find that it weakens the leather over time. However, if this is something you would like to add, please let us know.
