Sofa & Chair covers Monte Dourado

Post by snowbirds » Wed Apr 02, 2008 8:27 pm

I wanted new covers for my sofa and chairs at MD and estimates for having them made ranged from €850 - €1,100 (including material). I recently found a great solution and purchased fitted covers from Ikea (Ektorp sofa and chair line) and it was €139.00 for the sofa cover and €99.00 each for the chairs - there are a number of colour and pattern options. The Ektorp sofas are identical to the MD ones. We went to Ikea in Seville but they are available in all Ikea stores worldwide. They are 100% cotton and are washable. The only area that doesn't fit perfectly is the seat cushion, but I think that is because the cushions have compacted over the years - some extra foam added on top of the cushion will work. The seat cushion is reversible too, whereas the original ones are not.

If you want a wider selection of covers www.bemz.com is a website that has Ikea covers available at somewhat higher prices and they will ship directly to you.
