I'm thinking of purchasing this sofa (the pic is someone else's house). I'm on a pretty tight budget and I'm wondering whether you think it would be possible to have it reupholstered in some of IKEA's decorator's weight fabric or will it look janky after 2 years?
Great question! We're not that familiar with Ikea's fabrics, but if it's an upholstery weight fabric then we say go for it. If it's not truly upholstery weight though, hold off. Reupholstering itself, the labor that is, can be pricey so it would be a shame to not have it last because of the quality of the fabric.
Anyone have experience with Ikea's fabrics for reupholstering?
