      I purchased IKEA’s Vreta line (sofa, loveseat and ottoman) in black leather three months ago. I read reviews that the cushions were hard (which I like) and that the furniture is child friendly. BUT you may want to consider carefully before purchasing this furniture.

      IKEA’s service was, well, IKEA. The website reported that the furniture was not available in the store, yet when I ordered the items they were shipped from our local


      store. The delivery fee isn’t that bad and no one died, just check in store first if you want to save the delivery fee.

      When the furniture arrived it looked good though the leather was dry (parched, actually) so I gave it a good coat of IKEA’s leather treatment. The seats were very firm, but wore in quickly (too quickly as I would have preferred that they stayed firm). The furniture is comfortable ...


      • and wipe-and-wear child friendly.

        PROBLEM: As the cushions “wear in” the leather either stretches, or is loose due to the cushion compressing. I am not overweight, so this wear is not the result of a large rear or excessive use (I don’t sit in the furniture all day every day). As the leather becomes loose, if you do not sit on both sides of the sofa and loveseat (rotate where you sit on

        the furniture), they develop an uneven appearance which may annoy more fastidious people. This problem is more evident on the loveseat than on the sofa. The ottoman is fine and I tend to sit on that more than anything else.

        Overall, the furniture is attractive and if you are looking for non-fussy looking black leather in a world that seems to favor brown, IKEA’s Vreta line may be the best option for the price.

    The Vreta sofa is beautiful, but I would be very cautious since it is such a light color. I have a Beige Ikea Vreta leather couch and it does not clean as well as I thought it would. Simple things like juice and food will wipe right off, but dirt and sticky residue (particularly from candy covered hands) cling to it.

    I went and purchased a set of Better Homes and Gardens Slip overs for the couch from my local Wal-Mart (400 Shallowford Rd NW, Gainesville, GA 30504) I paid about $ 100 for the fitted ones so the shape of my couch would still come out, but I love them. It really helps to protect my couch from the kids and our pets.

    I am disappointed that I cant see the leather, but I still love the shape of the couch. If you do buy it I suggest purchasing some good slip covers.

    Did you have any luck purchasing Vreta slip covers? Now that the line is discontinued I can’t find them anywhere.
