Our Review.

The IKEA Nikkala was introduced in the early 2000s and discontinued in 2007 and frankly – a lot of people out there are actually wondering why it was discontinued especially when it was such a sturdy and comfy couch.

One thing to note: the IKEA Nikkala slipcover has 2 versions – one with a Hard/Hook velcro, and the other with a Soft/Loop. This gets confusing at times, possibly a reason why they discontinued as the slipcovers didn’t match the sofa.

Although the Nikkala 3 seater sofa has been discontinued in IKEA stores, Comfort Works is still producing replacement slipcovers for the IKEA Nikkala. Our Nikkala slipcovers also comes in the original IKEA snug version, as well as our very own long skirt version.
