Considered to be the hybrid sofa that’s somewhere in-between the immensely popular Karlstad and Kivik sofas, the IKEA Norsborg doesn’t live up to the expectations created by its successors. Super deep seating makes it a bit uncomfortable for those shorter folk.

Nevertheless, it a an extremely modular series and can be made into any number of configurations depending on house space.  If you’re after a very Scandinavian looking sofa and wish to impress friends without them staying too long in your home – this is the sofa to get ?

The legs themselves are hackable and can be can swapped out for slim mid-century inspired sofa legs which for a whole different look.

Also at Comfort Works, we made custom Sofa covers  in long skirt for one of our customers giving the IKEA Norsborg a complete new look, check it out below:
