I like the Cheshire (in caramel) and Albany (in ivory) from They have removable washable covers and you can buy a replacement cover in a different colour for £110 (for a two seater).

Or if you aren't bothered abour washable and want something contemporary looking, their Livorno 2 -seater (I like the slate and cranberry colours) is only £269 and looks really smart.

I have 2 albany's in taupe colour and have just sold them on gumtree as soooooooo uncomfortable even in a little tv room off the kitchen just hopeless!Ikea are better

I do like the look of the Albany sofa - we will defo sit on the sofa before buying as couldn't hack an uncomfortable one. Am wondering if leather would be more practicle seeing as any spillages could just be wiped off We have leather at the mo but they will be going in the main living room of the new house.

whatever the neighbours palm off on me.

Bodycolder - Ahh interesting about the Albany. Why so uncomfortable? I have a Cheshire it's very comfortable and lasting well as it's prob 7 years old now.

I don't like leather sofas at all.

I don't know its the first 'cheapish'sofa I've had and cushions are too soft but not in a good way it has really sagged and wasn't used to excess only bought last xmas and have already got rid and am going to buy another!Disappointed as lovely colour etc pic on profile but just prefer feather i think

We have a red Ikea Klippan sofa in the playroom. It has been abused used by 3 enthusiastic boys for 5 years and still looks great (won't tell you we went for the red leather one at the time wink as you are not so keen on leather, but I have to say the amount of food/drink/bodily fluids that have been wiped off it is impressive and I would get fed up with wrestling removable covers on and off it for washing).
Anyway, v good value for money IMO.

bodycolder - you don't seem to have a profile. btw I don't like feather seat cushions at all. I like feather back cushions but prefer something firm for the seat bit. grin Could you not have changed the seating material easily enough?

PacificGuywood - Oh I'm quite a fan of Klippan sofas. I love their shape and they are v reasonable aren't they?

PacificGuywood Mon 02-Nov-09 16:34:21

Yep, great shape for little monkeys to climb on and fall off wink.
The standard one with removable fabric cover is currently 129 pounds. I thinks our leather version was @ 300 pounds but cannot really remember.

We have a Klippan from Ikea - its fab, and there are lots of differentm covers available at the moment - inc a woman on ebay that makes them in just about every fabric known to man.

The covers are a bit of a pain to get off, but apart from that its fab. - Especially at £120 or whatever.

Wow the Klippan sounds such a good price & am glad they do a leather version. Haven't been to Ikea in years so definitely due a trip. Thanks!
