Ikea Vimle Review

What we have here is a Vimle series sofa that comes with a chaise. It can be arranged any way you like for your space at home. You can actually change the number of seats, design, and functions. So you will find that as your family grows you can add onto the sofa and let it grow with you. 

This soft and cozy sofa will have a long life as the seat cushions are filled with high resilience foam that gives good support for your body and quickly regains its original shape when you get up. It is such a good feeling when you stand up and realise that you didn’t actually leave a dent in the sofa right? 

With the sofa, you as well get a chaise, but it is not an ordinary chaise. The chaise lounge has storage under the seat so you can definitely store some movies or snacks before a movie gets down. The lid cand and will automatically stop in the open position so that you can easily pick out and put back the things that you are storing. 

You won’t have to worry about slapping it down or it closing down on your thumb. You can place the chaise section to the left or right of the sofa, and switch whenever you like. That has to be the other great thing about this sofa. You can design it how you want. Sectional sofas are just like that. So definitely you have nothing to worry about. Have fun styling your living room with this sofa.

Aesthetics

Just by looking at this sofa, you can fall in love with it. It has a beautiful shade of grey and the upholstery has this strong vibrant glow to it. It cuts across contemporary lines as well as the modern ones and would make the perfect to any room you have in your home. 

It is basically a sectional sofa which makes it all the more classic and stylish for any home. Its design is one you can easily fall for. Even without touching it, you can feel the energy it adds to the room and trusts me you will love that energy. If you are looking for something that will add flair and glare to your home then this is it right here. 

Besides sectional sofas just bring a homely and warm feel to a room, they are designed for bonding. They have generous amounts of sitting space and plus you can decide to lounge, sit, or take a complete nap altogether. 

Sizes

When it comes to size this sofa would be perfect for medium-sized rooms to big or even large rooms. As it is a sectional sofa I wouldn’t really recommend it for small living spaces as it could end up crowding so many things and make the room just a tad bit uncomfortable. 

So the height including back cushions is 32 5/8 ” with the backrest height at 26 3/4 “. The chaise has a storage space and sits at a depth of 64 5” and a width of 99 1/4 “. The overall depth of the sofa is 38 5/8 ” and the Seat depth of chaise lounge is 49 1/4 “. 

There is a clearance under the sofa of 2 3/8 ” not high enough for you to actually sweep under but it is reasonable given you to want to carry the sofa. Armrest width is 5 7/8 ” Armrest height at 26 3/4 ” the seat width sits at 87 3/8 ” and the Seat depth 21 5/8 ” and finally Seat height which is at 18 7/8 “

Feel

So basically for this sofa, we have Solid Wood, Plywood, Fiberboard, Particleboard, Polyurethane foam Non-woven polypropylene, and Polyester wadding. Part of the frame has metal parts such as steel. We have the seat inner cushions stuffed with High-resilience polyurethane foam and the Back inner cushion with Polyester fiber balls. All in all this sofa is firm, and comfortable and will definitely perform up to standard. 

Durability

This sofa has a  cover that is made from dyed gunnared fabric in polyester. It is a durable fabric with a wool-like feel, a warm look, and a two-toned mélange effect. The cover is easy to keep clean since it is removable and machine washable. 

You can adjust the headrest to extend the backrest of the sofa so that you sit even more comfortable with nice support for your neck. It comes with a 10-year limited warranty. The cover is pretty special as it has a lightfastness level of 5 measured on a scale of 1 to 8. 

According to industry standards, a lightfastness level of 4 or higher is suitable for home use. This cover’s ability to resist abrasion has been tested to handle 50,000 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

This is a high-quality sofa that comes with a chaise that has a storage space. You can adjust it do you sit more comfortably. You can take amazing naps at any given time and definitely you will not wake up with any neck or back problems. 

Let us add the fact that the sofa is a sectional sofa. Do I think that it’s a good purchase? Yes, I do. I really do. I mean the quality of the material is amazing and it’s guaranteed to last you more than 10 years with a warranty in the case it fails. So yes I think that such a sofa for the price of $699.00 is definitely worth it. 

Verdict

At the end of the day, it is up to you to make the final decision. I mean it is your money after all. However, do hear me out here this sofa can be adjusted and it is the best sofa to go for in the case that you are planning on growing a family or moving into a family home. 

Why not? This would be the perfect start-up solution for a family with pets and kids. Plus it’s easy to clean and maintain so you know what that means? Anyhoo enjoy your shopping. Don’t miss out on our Nockeby Sofa review.
