IKEA Ektorp Sectional

IKEA Ektorp Sectional

I have been looking for a white sectional for our sunroom for some time now.  I envisioned white, cozy, and comfortable. After all, living in Vermont requires cozy rooms three quarters of the year... So I searched and I searched.  And the one sectional that kept coming up was the Ektorp Sectional from IKEA.  It is under $1,000 (+ about $200 to deliver it to our area in Vermont), comes with washable slipcovers, along with many other slipcover options that you may choose from if you ever want to change the color or replace the originals.  What's the gotcha?  You have to assemble it!  And this made me soooo nervous, as I've never purchased anything from IKEA before, and am well aware that all their furniture requires assembly.  But for the price and all, I decided to give it a go.  And I want to share this experience with you here on the Blog.


The IKEA Ektorp White Sectional took about 3-4 weeks to arrive.  They called me in advance to schedule a time and mentioned it was on a pallet, however they would deliver it to any room in the house.  The delivery arrived on time and I had them leave it in our garage.  It looks pretty intimidating does it??





I started to un-package the pallet and to my surprise, it didn't look that challenging after all.  I share a lot more of the un-packaging on my Instagram Highlights under IKEA Ektorp  It came in three large boxes on the pallet, which included three parts of the sectional, which were already assembled, along with the pillows!!  The only thing we had to do was attach the arms on the end of each section and screw on each leg, which is plastic and not wood by the way.  Once this part is assembled, you simply attach each section and put the slipcovers on, which are just as simple.  They fit perfectly.  The total time to put this IKEA Ektorp Sectional together was about 20 minutes plus the time it took to fit the slipcovers.  I was thrilled!


All the paperwork states that it is a two-person job.  So could I have done this myself?  YES, I could have assembled this IKEA Ektorp Sectional myself if I had it delivered into the house, as I don't think I could have carried each sectional into the house from the garage. 


You may see the entire assembly here: 





Now I'm off to decorate this beautiful white Ektorp Sectional that is now in our sunroom and to make it as cozy and comfortable as possible!!  Which to me means lot's of blankets and pillows!





It is definitely a super comfortable sectional and the slipcovers are of very high quality.










I'm so grateful you stopped by today and please let me know if you have any questions regarding this Ektorp Sectional!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
