Good Questions: Can I Replace With Non-Ikea Legs?

Elizabeth sent us a good question: I'm thinking of getting the Karlstad IKEA sofa with the ullevi gray cover (dark gray wool/felt-like) like the pic. Has anyone ever tried to replace the legs with a non-IKEA leg?

I know that IKEA has a few options for the legs, but I'm not fond of any of theirs. I'd love for it to have more mid-century modern looking legs like the ones to the right in the photo. I haven't gotten down to IKEA to look at how theirs are attached. Any help or information would be appreciated! Thanks.

Can anyone share any experience or advice with Elizabeth? Please let her know in the comments...
