LILLBERG Sofa at IKEA

Looking around at sofas, we recently came across this one, The Lillberg, and felt that it was in the offing as another IKEA classic. Designed by Nike Karlsson, the sofa is part of a complete set of seating, including a rocker, sofa bed, armchair and sofa. While we worry about durability, we see Ikea hacks galore to spruce this baby up with paint and pillow covers...

In the new IKEA sofa catalog, the writers reveal the true spirit of the Scandinavian giant, a democratic love of affordable design: Designer Nike Karlsson set out to make seating that would cost less than what you buy at a flea market! With a $279 sofa, they're just about there.
