My new couch cover... what do you think?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
At Ikea I bought a couch that has interchangeable covers. Yesterday I found this one:



It's bright and cheerful... perfect for spring and summer.

So, what do you think?

Ohh, I like! Very cheerful. And it matches the gumball machine!

Edit - oh it's a Jelly Belly one? Even better!

Uhm, not my style at all, it's a bit loud, but as long as YOU like it, that's all that matters.

I have this one too, so I can make it a bit more sedate.

EDIT: it's the one at the top of the pick list.

The grey one? Now THAT one I like. You'll just have to use that one when I'm coming to visit you.

Like I said, though, it's what YOU like that counts the most. I'm glad you had fun shopping for yourself!

It is an eye catcher! I don't think anyone would be able to sleep on it - too bright and would keep you awake

Now that I absolutely LOVE! Bright, noticeable....definately something I need!

Very nice!! I also like the Ikea coffee table
post #13 of 29
yey, that is so fresh and lively, certainly brings Spring into mind - and I notice you have a Ikea cat-nip butterfly on the coffee table !!

Heres Teddy with one a little bit more chewed up

I love it!!
post #15 of 29
Yes, it's bright - reminds me of the 1960s. And 1970s. (Gawd I feel old right now. )

I wonder how it will look once it gets covered in cat hair.

Wow, that is so fun! What a great couch! I love Ikea.

I think it's really cute! It wouldn't match ANYTHING in my house but it looks so cute in yours!

I'm definitely not afraid of color: our bedroom walls are a dark burgundy and our bedspread is made of Indian sari material with golds, blues, purples, reds, greens.

It's alittle too loud for me, but I like it when people exhibit their own style Fill up that dispenser!
post #22 of 29
I think it's cute. Not what I could do in my house, but very pretty and bold.

And I agree, fill up the Jelly Belly dispenser!

Ditto! It is cheerful

Ah, don't you love Ikea? Good quality stuff at prices you can handle without pain. To tell the truth, I'm not crazy about some of their textiles -- Scandinavian tastes are more pop-arty than mine -- but by golly, they're guaranteed to wake you up, eh?

And Ikea may have the only slipcovers in the world that actually look good. With cats, of course, you try to use slipcovers... we have quite a collection... but it usually looks better just to throw a sheet over your furniture!

But your sofa looks great, and I know that densely-woven fabric is not likely to appeal to little claws, so that's good.

Scratch has taken a nap on it, and to be honest it doesn't look that bad. When I bought it I thought that I'd be lint brushing it twice a day.

Oh I love that - so bright and cheerful!! I love Ikea - so much choice and such good value!!!

We have the little coffee table too!!
post #27 of 29
I think it'd look much better with 3 kitties snuggled up on it! :p It's awesome though - a fantastic spring cover!

We have those same Ikea couches all around work and I LOVE them! There's always people having meetings on them, napping on them, or just hanging out on them - they're so comfy!

The Almas grey green/biege one or the large green floral print one that is similiar to the one you just bought?

I like both of them. It's kind-of retro from the late 60s. My mom used to wear sundresses with patterns like that. Very cheery.
