Even famous designers need a good old-fashioned IKEA run every once in a while. Case in point: Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent just decorated their vacation home with a chic corduroy couch from the iconic Swedish home goods retailer.

Brent recently took to Instagram to share a peek at a corner of the living room of the couple’s new Portuguese farmhouse, which they’re currently renovating.

“Quiet scenes from our in-progress house in Portugal (Yes, the sofa is from @ikea!),” he wrote alongside a photo of a cozy-looking green corduroy couch. The couch features ribbed lining and deep, plush pillowing.

More specifically, it’s IKEA’s Jättebo seat module (retailing for $510), which can be combined with other seat modules, chaise lounge modules, and armrests to create custom seating for your space. The seat and chaise modules come with built-in storage space underneath the seat, so you can store blankets, board games, or anything else that you’d like to squeeze into your living room.

Although Brent and Berkus went with the color dark yellow-green, the modules are also available in beige and grey shades. The seat module covers are also removable and washable, a major plus for families like Brent and Berkus, who have young children.

As if working on a new Portugal home weren’t enough, Berkus also just launched his very own home decor line called Nate Home, “a collection of bed, bath and organization items featuring Nate’s signature style and inspired by his travels and over 25 years of design experience.”

You can shop the collection on his official website now.
