Anyone have stories, good or bad, about the Ektorp model, slipcovered sofa from IKEA? How has yours held up?

I'm hoping the covers wash well without too much shrinkage. Wonder if the cushions get cushier with age; it's a bit hard now.

    I have not...but being a custom furniture builder I tend to steer well away from mass produced particle board "disposable" stuff.
  • I have two Ektorps in my living room, as well as the footstool. We bought ours from the As-Is section, so I think they'd been softened for us a bit -- I don't think they're hard at all. As for the covers, as long as you DO NOT DRY THEM EVEN FOR A SECOND
