Save, Spend, Splurge: Slipcovered Sofas

As I mentioned last week, I'm on the hunt for a new sofa for the living room. We're doing a little switch-a-roo with the living room and den, making the larger living room the more casual of the two (an idea that is sure to horrify my mother).

I want this sofa to be able to withstand, wine, mud, you name it! That's why I'm looking for one slipcovered in white duck, so I can wash it and even bleach it if necessary. Here are three options at three different price points.

Ikea ~ Ektorp Sofa ~ $399

Number Four Eleven ~ Rachel Sofa from Best Slipcover Company ~ $1998

Windsor Smith Home Collection ~ Windsor Sofa ~ $5650 

My favorite is the Windsor Sofa, but it's out of our price range unfortunately. I think I've decided to go with the Rachel Sofa, which I'll customize with a mini box pleat skirt similar to the Windsor slipcover. It's the best of both sofas, don't you think?

  1. We have the Ikea Ektorp and love it. Just Scotchgard it, throw a few fun pillows on it and you are all set!
