Karlstad anyone?

Okay, okay… before I even start this post I have to fess up. I was really IN LOVE (you know, the teenage, 1 month romance that I thought would last forever, that type of love) with the Darrin sofa from this post here.

I still really like the sofa, I love the style, the color, etc… but when it came down to it, we have decided that we need something bigger, like a sectional. Okay, so not just a sectional but a low back, clean lined, AFFORDABLE sectional.

As you’ve probably already guessed, we have decided to go with the Karlstad. To be exact, we have measured out our space and the love seat with two chaises will be our pick.

After following YHL for a few years and loving their style and most of their design choices, the hubs and I decided to go to IKEA and check out their sofa selection (YHL has a huge Karlstad sectional and they really like it). To our surprise, we loved the Karlstad. It has a 10 year warranty and it’s just around $1000 for a big sofa WITH the slip cover. And might I add that I love the idea of being able to change out the slip cover if we want to change up our look.

Some thing I didn’t like about the Karlstad were the pine legs and there are a lot of them! It was a little overwhelming. I’d like to add some sweet, contemporary legs to the sofa eventually. Something like these:

Or there are these metal legs that IKEA sells separately but made specifically for the Karlstad sofa, so these may be of interest too… just not sure yet. We shall wait and see how the couch looks in our living room and then go from there. Looks like we are 99% on board to purchase this sofa (holla!).

Here are some insperation pictures of Karlstad in other homes:
