My New Ikea Slip Cover from Comfort Works

Yep, you are seeing that correctly....a pink sofa, in my house!!! I never thought I would have colour in my house let alone pink.... but here I am today sharing with you guys my new gorgeous slip cover in the most beautiful pink...or should I say "rose" tone, that even Curtis loves! I wanted to dedicate a post to this company and the quality of their covers in hopes it helps you decide to give your sofa, arm chairs, even dining room chairs some new life too!

*This blog post is in partnership with Comfort Works, but all opinions are my own.

I have been looking for a new cover for my Ektorp 2x2 sectional for a while. Sadly this sofa is no longer available at Ikea, but instead now goes under the Uppland Sofa series. I mean to me it looks exactly the same as the Ektorp, and it's even the same price, but some how it's suppose to be different, possibly it's a bit bigger?? We bought our sectional from Ikea in 2013, and have loved it ever since. For a review of our sectional, you can see that here.

I have a beige, a dark grey and a white cover for the sofa already from Ikea, but they have all shrunk and are a total pain to get on after being washed so often. So I was ready for some new life and hopefully better quality material to bring to our much loved sectional.

I found an incredible company online called Comfort Works. They are based out of Australia and have slip covers in SO many different popular sofas, arm chairs, dining chairs and more! I was so pleased to see my Ikea sectional on there and immediately ordered 8 samples. It's always hard to tell online the true feel and colour of a material unless you see it in person, so to me it was a no brainer to order a few shades to choose from. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly these arrived!

My gut told me to order a fun colour this time as I've been riding the neutral train for sooo long and was ready for a change. I still ordered some of the neutral samples, but I was really leaning towards the fun rose and teal tones. After many days of trying to decide, I eventually chose the Claw Proof material in the colour Velvet Rose.

The Claw Proof material sounded just like what I needed! A strong fabric that is resistant to our dogs sharp claws and material that will also feel soft and luxurious at the same time. I couldn't wait to get my order in and it was so simple to do so! I also went with a classic style, which includes timeless piping, and a slightly loose skirt with subtle corner and end pleats.

Ordering a new slip cover is super easy in a few simple steps.

  1. Pick out your sofa or arm chair, etc

  2. Select your fabric

  3. Choose your style!
