Ikea Stockholm Sofa Review

So let’s talk about classic sofas, literally, this sofa will make you feel less of a human. The way it stands and the way it stands is almost as if it’s challenging your ability to stand tall and proud. 

Ikea Stockholm Sofa

Dressed in soft velvet this sofa comes extra deep and wonderfully spacious. It is the perfect sofa for families because if it’s the spacious attribute. At the same time if you just want to add a tone of class to your home then this sofa is exactly what you need. The look, the accent, and even the style says it all about this sofa. Disappointment is far from reach with this sofa. 

The velvet touch is part of the deep expensive look and is all you need for this sofa to make your home into a lavish castle. It also has a lot of loose cushions that give comfort and support, for however you prefer either to sit or lie down. This is the sofa to long for and enjoy for years.

It comes with a sandbacka cover that is made of velvet which, through a traditional weaving technique, gives the fabric a warm, deep color and a rich surface with a dense pile and light, reflective shine.

You will find that the seat and back cushions provide comfortable support for your body and easily regain their shape because they’re filled with high resilience foam and polyester fibers. 

Pros 

  • Comes with reversible cushions
  • Is very easy to clean and maintain
  • Has a beautiful classic look that will style up your home

Cons

  • Color may start to fade from the cushions
  • Is not waterproof or stain resistant

Aesthetics

Coming to you in two colors; the dark blue and the light grey, this sofa has definitely won a spot in my heart. The velvet reflects light in a characteristic way which may make the color appear as if it changes. Small fibers may appear on the velvet. 

It happens naturally and they disappear over time and can also be removed with a lint roller. You can even turn the back cushions so they wear evenly and last longer, as they’re reversible and have the same fabric on both sides. 

What is so inspirational about this sofa is the different ways you can use the sofa and the places it can be put. The generous size with all the pillows and the big seat cushions make it easy to adapt the sofa as needed.

So get this sofa, change your home and be able and ready to lie down, sit down and put up your legs, sit alone or with others, eat, sit with the computer, or just rest. It’s all up to you. 

Sizes

This sofa is generally big and I would say it fits perfectly in big rooms like a tv room or a reading room in your home. If you have a big hall room in your house that you may just want to use for relaxing then this sofa is definitely for it. Or a tea room for your guests. 

This sofa would work perfectly because of its spacious attribute. So if you have a small hoe or you want to fill up a small room, this sofa is too big in terms of size and aesthetic to place in a room. Its look and size would overwhelm everything in that room. 

Check the following measurements and you will understand what I mean. Width: 89 3/4 “, Depth: 44 ⅛ “, Height: 28 3/8 “, Armrest height: 28 3/8 “, Seat width: 74 3/4 “,Seat depth: 38 1/4 “,Seat height: 18 1/8 “

Feel

After such a sight, how would you think this sofa would disappoint when it comes to its comfort. This sofa is not only comfortable when it comes to sitting and lying down. But the smooth velvet feel on your skin would be one to die for. Trust me when I say that there is definitely more than just looks when it comes to this sofa. 

You will find that this sofa will follow through with your body no matter which position or posture you decide to take. The cushions made with high resilience foam will not give in easily so don’t worry about the sofa losing its shape after you sit on it.

Of course, like anything you buy, it needs time to break so the first days the sofa may tend to be a bit stiff, but after about a week it will definitely change. 

Durability

Well, when it comes to durability I have to say that you may find some marks that may appear on the velvet usually disappear in time. With your hand, you can gently stroke in the direction of the pile or use a clothes brush. You can also use the vacuum cleaner with the soft nozzle. 

The felt pads underneath protect the surface below against scratches. This sofa comes with a 25-year limited warranty. So I guess you know what that means. It will definitely last you a long time.

The velvet cover that I have come to love has the ability to resist abrasion and has been tested to handle 35,000 cycles. 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture used every day at home. Over 30,000 cycles mean a good ability to resist abrasion.

Price

Going for $1 699, this sofa could be a life-changer for you. From everything I have seen about this sofa, I would love to say that this sofa is defined as worth your money. Of course, if you are on a tight budget it isn’t a do or die case. However, I believe that saving up for such a sofa would be a great idea. 

Verdict

All in all, I would say that this sofa is a great idea if you plan on extending the furniture in your home. This sofa has proven to be that one sofa that will change so many things in your home.

The Velvet look, the classic feel, what else could you possibly want in your home. Though pricey I think it has proven to be worth such a price. 

I mean with a 25-year limited warranty I think this sofa will do more good than harm any day in your home.
