The Best $500 Couch: Ikea Ektorp
We are always on the hunt for a great couch for clients, family and friends. After searching high and low we have concluded that this is the best around.
It also comes with a 10-year warranty, considerably better than more expensive brands that come with little warranty or none at all.
Not only does this couch beat competitor couches, we think it is also the best value in the Ektorp Series.
The 3-seater sofa is $399, 85″ long, and comfortably seats 3 people. Our favorite sofa is 99″ long, and has a chase which can easily handle 4-5 people for just $100 more.
The sectional is $799.00. It only offers only a little extra seating than our favorite and is $300 more expensive!
Obviously, the size and shape of your room dictate what sofa you need to purchase. But if you have an option, the loveseat + chaise combo is the biggest bang for your buck.
Color is also another huge factor in sofa shopping. Although, I love this gray color, the white is the only color that is machine washable. This was a huge selling point for me. We are hoping for babies and puppies at some point so wanted something that could be thrown in the washer. The white is at least $100 cheaper than the colors, and you can never go wrong with a blank canvas! No matter how much you change up the color scheme, this couch will always work.
We bought this couch and are more than happy with its looks and comfort. It may not last a lifetime, but we are more than happy $500 got us a machine-washable slipcovered sectional with a 10-year warranty!
Have you got a piece of furniture you love that was a great buy? We’d love to hear.
