IKEA slipcovers upgrade: Kat’s office lobby gets a facelift
Changing out the dark blue IKEA slipcovers does wonders for this dark, narrow space. Whenever I walked into my bestie’s office, I think, “This place can look so much better.” The office reception is long and narrow. Not that I minded the size but the space felt dark, bare and unfinished. Almost like they ran out of decorating steam, pushed a couch against the wall and called it a day. So when Comfort Works reached out on a possible collaboration, I thought, “Yeah, why not makeover Kat’s IKEA KIVIK sofa with new slipcovers and update the space as much as we can?” Here’s the office reception before we got to work: From IKEA, they have a KIVIK two-seater in Hillared dark blue slipcovers and a NOT floor uplighter. Beside the sofa, a glass side table. And wall-to-wall carpet tiles in patterned grey. We didn’t want to spend too much on new pieces, so kept the lamp and side table. The goal was to style the place up to be brighter, more cheery and welcoming. Ordering new IKEA slipcovers First thing I did was to explore the fabric options for the KIVIK 2-seater on Comfort Works. There were so many choices, ranging from heavy duty fabric to wool to leather. I picked a few that caught my eye and ordered samples. Always order samples because you can’t trust the colour on your screen. And of course, you want a feel of the fabric. Soon enough, the samples landed in my mailbox. [...]
