I'm so excited to be showing you our new offish redesigned living room! This was an especially fun lil project for me because I didn't buy any new furniture to create this new look - that's right, this is actually the same Ikea sectional we've had for years. The secret is these fab replacement slipcovers and wooden sofa legs from Comfort Works. Yaaaaaaas! If you need a refresher on what the space used to look like, take a peek below.
As you can see, our sofa was a dark grey color. Our new house is so light and bright, this dark sofa with metal legs just wasn't vibing for me in the space. That's why I was so happy when Comfort Works reached out to me about trying their Soderhamn sofa covers. They sent me a bunch of fabric samples to choose from and I fell in love with one called Liege Biscuit. It fit perfectly with the look I was going for, and Eddie loved it too.
Initially I was a little nervous about how much work it would take to disassemble our couch in order to put all the pieces of the cover on, then reassemble everything - but it was actually very simple and easy to do! I did it all by myself in under 2 hours.
Each piece of the cover had a color coordinated tag that told you very clearly which part of the sofa it was meant to cover. Couldn’t have been easier, honestly. They slipped right on no prob and fit perf, not too big or too small.
After I placed all the slipcovers onto the sofa, I realized that our current coffee table just wasn’t the right vibe for our new look. The dark wood and metal sides weren’t what I wanted to pair with our new light, cheerful sofa - plus it’s just so big and bulky! So for now, we’re using our banana fiber poufs as an interim coffee table, while I look for a new one. I love how much more space there is now without that large coffee table taking up all the room!
I also decided to take the arm rests off the sofa - I feel like that made such a big difference! The space feels so much more open & airy without them. I also don’t feel as boxed in when I’m sitting on the couch.
When I found out Comfort Works also provides wooden sofa legs, I was super excited. I’d always hated the steel legs that came with our sofa! These round beech legs were what I had wanted all along.
So what do you think of the new look? Have you ever tried using slipcovers to change up a space? Let me know in the comments!
