For reasons that are boring even to me, I find myself on the brink of buying a flat pack love seat from Ikea.
Okay. I’ll confess – the reasons are:
- we don’t have enough mess and turmoil in this house where only 2 oldsters live
- we think the challenge of bolting a piece of upholstered furniture together will be good for our marriage
- it will be good practice for trying to zip up a handrail cover that has only 1/8″ of fabric beyond the dimensions of the rail itself
- we have faith that a love seat that costs $359 will be a quality long term investment
I am at the point where I have to admit that this might be the only option for me. I never had anything from Ikea and know only only college students or people in their first solo apartments who have had. Does anyone here have experience with upholstered furniture from Ikea? Or the longevity of any of their furniture? Comments appreciated.
