Sitting Room & IKEA's STOCKSUND Sofa Review

I wanted to share a little review on IKEA’s STOCKSUND sofa today.

I do not think they have this dark gray fabric cover anymore but a lighter version and some other designs.

We bought this sofa before Weston was born. In February 2018. We have had it for over a year now and we really like it. It is deep and comfortable and I like how you can remove the covers.

We had a smaller sofa here before and we are always in here so we went for a larger sofa and this one fit well in this space.

I did finally take the wall art off. I’m not sure if I will put it back up or do something different.

Although I do not wash the covers often. it is a lot of work. I prefer to keep a blanket on top and vacuum the cushions and under them about once or twice a month. Sometime I just wash the bottom cushion covers. They take a long time to dry and they need to air dry.

My husband put the sofa together and it did not take him long at all.

The rug was purchased from Target online. I do regret buying it. It does not look like this anymore and you can not see the design at all and it looks matted down. The IKEA rugs I have held up better. Eventually I will be buying something better. You can find the rug here.

Here it is all put together for the first time. Harper was excited to test it out.

We ended up taking the tall shelf out and replacing it with a smaller, shorter one. The TV is now on the wall also.

Here is real life after having a baby. It is much cleaner now minus the toys and books everywhere and we did get a ceiling fan for this space. You can see that post here.

We are very happy with this sofa. If you are on a tight budget and need a good sized comfortable sofa this is a great one. It is also nice to take naps on.

I will share another post on some updates on this space and about our new floors soon. I still need to finish the gallery wall by the TV and the area above the sofa.

Thank you for reading!
