Ikea Ekebol Sofa Review

Are you looking for a sofa that can take care of yourself and your needs as well? I mean most sofas we come by can only grant comfort and luxury right? Well, what I have today is the Ekebol sofa from Ikea which comes with a shelf just below it. This sofa can take care of yourself and your things all at the same time. 

This beautiful sofa has storage shelves on all sides and wire mesh for you to hang your items. You can just place the sofa in the middle of the room and the mesh back becomes an attractive detail. You get a 10-year limited warranty when you get this sofa so you really have nothing to worry about. 

The shelves for storage come on all sides of the sofa so you don’t have to worry about which angle to set your sofa in. The steel mesh can be used to store things by hanging them up. The sofa can be placed as a focal piece in the middle of the room since the steel mesh at the back will add a nice decorative touch to the room. 

The sofa is made of separable parts and thanks to smart packaging it’s easy to take home. Again the corner of the sofa can be placed to the right or left, so you can choose the position that best suits your home. 


  • Is very comfortable 
  • Comes with storage space and storage shelves
  • Is very aesthetic 


  • Is not as big
  • Is not resistant to stains or proof to water



The design of this sofa has made it a unique piece of furniture to any image that looks to it. It is easy to place and so easy to use for various needs. Because of its design, you will find that it is very easy to match with other furnishings as well so you know that it will definitely blend in with the surrounding. 

It comes in a simple offwhite color that is neutral and all in all, will create a bright accent in your room. It has a modern line that easily cuts across contemporary and classic interiors so basically you can’t go wrong with this sofa in your home. This product may have traces of rust. 

It is part of the expression of the product and does not affect the quality of the material. Each part of this sofa piece has a unique personality since natural marks and traces from the production are fully visible and part of the industrial expression. So yes this piece will definitely set a difference to your home. 


This sofa is not as big as you might think it is. At the same time, you cannot classify it as a small sofa. It is medium-sized and would be the perfect addition to any home whether big or small. What I love most about this sofa is that you can never have trouble when trying to fit it in a room and through a door. 

It is perfectly built and designed to give no one trouble upon delivery so you don’t have to worry about your door at any point.

However, it is always good to specify in the designing and sizing of a product before you buy it so here goes. This sofa comes at a width of 180 cm and a depth of 92 cm not forgetting a height of 88 cm so as you can clearly see it’s not that big of a sofa. 

Under the sofa, you will find a clearance of 12 cm which is enough if you ever want to sweep under it or find space and allowance to lift it. The armrest is at a height of 80 cm with the seat width resting at 157cm. The seat depth which is usually the most important is at 68 cm hence making the seat height 46 cm. 


You are probably wondering what such a sofa feels like right? Well, let’s look at what the sofa is made from so that we know how it feels. 80 % of the sofa is cotton and the other  20 % being linen. So imagine that soft comfort that you will get from this sofa. 

Back cushions are made from Polyester fiber balls, Non-woven polypropylene, Polyester wadding. With the seat cushions Polyurethane foam 2.0 lb/cu.ft., Non-woven polypropylene, and Polyester wadding as well. 

The wire mesh and frame are made from epoxy-polyester powder coating to give it this cool shine that makes your sofa look so good. The shelf has Birch plywood and clear acrylic lacquer with the bed having birch veneer and adhesive resin as a coating. Definitely it’s going to be a strong and comfortable bed and if you think otherwise you might need to look this up. 


The best thing about this sofa is the cover which is what people normally worry about. The cover is easy to keep clean since it is removable and machine washable. It has a lightfastness level of 5 which is referenced to a scale of 1 to 8. 

And just so you know according to the industry anything that is at scale level four is perfect for home use. This sofa is made from clear-lacquered steel. Since the raw steel is not hidden under a fully covering surface treatment, each sofa will vary in look and each piece will be unique as well. 

This cover’s ability to resist abrasion has been tested to handle 25,000 cycles. A cover that withstands 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture that should withstand everyday use in the home.


Well, sitting at 329 I would say this sofa may be too small for such a large amount. But given everything else said about this sofa I think if you are down for it, you could be buying yourself a lifetime cozy spot. Considering the durability and the practicality this sofa could definitely be what you need and what you want. 


In conclusion, let me first just say Woah! Secondly, that’s all there is to say. I mean this is a great piece for your home especially given that it has a shelf and all.

However, for such a price you could get a bigger and better piece elsewhere. Besides that this sofa is a great piece and I am certain once you have it you can’t regret the choice. Be sure to check out the IKEA Landskrona Sofa Review.
