Review: Ikea Stocksund

Miss me?  I miss blogging and sharing- but life has been busy...

I promised a review of the Ikea couches, so here it is.  My sofas are from the Stocksund Collection and we have had them for almost a year now.  Our family room has very little wall space and needed plenty of seating that was small enough for the walls we do have.  

We purchased two of the loveseats, one side chair, the ottoman, and bench.

The Highlights:

  • The sofas are comfy, I'd say a 4 out of 5.
  • Wide choice of colors 
  • Washable, zip-close, cushion and arm covers
  • Choice of foot color-dark or light
  • The bench has storage (toys, blankets, etc.)
  • Nicely priced


  • Can't reverse the lower seat cushions
  • Not stain resistant
  • Legs loosen easily (maybe it's the jumping kids)

Overall, I would say they've held up great, considering we have had a lot of traffic on these babies!  I let the kids eat on them and of course the dog sleeps up there once in a while ;)

Since my purchase, Ikea added a red velvety cover and I WANT these for winter, if only on the chair...
