Ikea Norsborg Sofa

The Norsborg series has certainly become an obsession recently. Replacing the Karlstad what we have here is a sofa that has managed to size and shape to fit your space, and create a favourite spot for each family member. It comes with handy pockets on the side that keep remote controls from getting lost under pillows and throws.

Okay, that’s not the only thing those pockets are for but at least now you have an idea of what to use them for. So what we are looking at here is a 3-seat sofa that comes with chaise longue. Sort of like an extra seat, mini table type of thing. Big or small, colourful or neutral this sofa will still serve its purpose in your home. 

I figured that this sofa comes in many shapes, styles and sizes so that you can easily find the one that suits you and your family best or maybe you and your pet best. What you are getting from this sofa is a  soft and comfortable sofa filled with high resilience foam that supports your body and quickly regains its shape when you stand up. 

The armrests are higher making the sofa extra comfortable to curl up in the corner of the sofa. Imagine a winter night on this sofa next to the fireplace. What could you possibly need? The chaise lounge is versatile that means apart from it being multi-functional you can also place the chaise longue section to the left or right of the sofa, and switch whenever you like.

Pros

  • The sofa comes as modular sectional which you can rearrange 
  • It is a very comfortable sofa
  • It is easy to clean and maintain 

Cons

  • The sofa is easily stained and is not resistant to sharp objects

Aesthetics

Well, the Norsborg series does have a talent when it comes to style. It generally comes in 5 colours that is  Edum Dark Blue, Edum Light Blue, Finsta Dark Grey, Finsta Red, and Finsta White. Pretty generic colours that can blend in with almost every style. From top to toe this sofa oozes a great sense of style which normally cuts across all design lines that you know. 

However, because of the shades in color you may have a hard time trying to pull off a vintage look. The legs come in a cylindrical shape and manner. The Norsborg sofa offers these modern-looking rounded wooden legs as well as the grey cylindrical ones.

This makes it the perfect fit if you are looking for a sofa that can fit in a modern home. So if you are looking for a sofa that can cut across so many designer lines then this sofa is definitely the one you have been looking for. 

Sizes

When it comes to size this sofa cannot classify as small at the same time we can classify it as big. It’s just one of those middle and medium-sized sofas that you can put in a normal sized living room and get a comfortable look. It comes with a deep sitting which as a short person you might find very uncomfortable. 

However, this sofa is generally a good space cozying up on a winter night. Looking at the following measurements I think you will have an idea of what I mean.

The sofa comes as follows; Width: 231 cm, Height: 85 cm, Min. depth: 88 cm, Max. depth: 157 cm, Seat depth, chaise longue: 129 cm, Free height under furniture: 18 cm, Seat depth: 60 cm, Seat height: 43 cm, if you have a medium to large room I think this sofa would work pretty well for you. 

However, if you have a small room, don’t lose heart, the good thing is that you can rearrange the chaise lounge to different positions so you can make it work. 

Feel

Comfort is one of the first things we look forward to when it comes to a sofa. I have to say that this sofa managed to cut across all those lines and you will be pleased to know that it will serve well in that area. The sofa. 

The armrests are high meaning you can easily lean back and relax with your whole back and arms supported. The cushion has high resilience foam which makes them quite firm and best believe that you don’t have to worry about that sinking feeling that most sofas bring. 

Durability

However just to ease your mind I am going to tell you a bit about this sofa’s construction and hopefully, you’ll understand why I am telling you to not worry about it at all.

The legs are made of solid wood and extra high so that you can easily vacuum under the sofa. The cover is easy to keep clean as it is removable and can be machine washed. All the cotton in these products comes from more sustainable sources. 

This means that the cotton is either recycled or grown with less water, fewer fertilisers, and fewer pesticides while increasing profit margins for the farmers. Which means that it will definitely last longer. Frame for the armrest is made from Fibreboard, Solid wood, Polyurethane foam 30 kg/cu.m., Particleboard With the legs being made from solid birch, tinted clear and acrylic lacquer. 

Price

Coming to you with a ten-year warranty I really don’t think that durability should be one of your worries when it comes to this sofa. Coming at a price of $1 039 this sofa definitely deserves to be termed as expensive. It is a good sofa and it will definitely provide more than just comfort in your home.

Verdict

What I love most about this sofa is that nothing about it is exaggerated. What you see is what you get and clearly just by looking at it, you can tell the amount of comfort it will give you.

It has a fluffy look but once you sit on it it doesn’t give in that easily. With plywood and solid wood, this sofa is definitely going to grant you the comfort you need. 

However, when it comes to it’s pricing it is a bit too high for a three-seat sectional. I do recommend it though, it got my favor from its durability to its aesthetics, I have to say I was really impressed by its outlook.
