carrie bradshaw lied home


Last summer we rearranged our den with an upgraded sofa (more about that here) and added the Ikea Ektorp chair and ottoman to our den.  Christian always starts out sitting on the sofa, following by halfway lying down, inevitably followed by fully lying down with limbs over my lap or something equally… frustrating.  After a while I knew I wanted to add something just as comfortable so that when the Sunday football + nap ensued, I had somewhere to sit and work or read.

This chair and ottoman is so comfortable and a great price, and we’ve had the white cotton Ektorp slipcover on it since we purchased it.  So when Comfort Works reached out about working together to design a custom slipcover for the set, it was music to my ears (check out all their Ektorp varieties)! Each slipcover is made to order, allowing so many unique, customized options.  They actually specialize in current and discontinued Ikea models, but also create slipcovers for any brand – if you send a picture, they’ll work with you to figure out what will work best for your piece.

I wanted to have some pleats on the chair skirt, and I am still over-the-top in love with how it turned out! After receiving multiple swatches to choose from (I shared a sneak peek of this here), I chose Liege Biscuit and am beyond pleased. The fabric is nano-coated which means liquid and dirt run off the service because of the coating of the material (demo with red wine here). With two pets and lots of red wine in my life, it’s a no-brainer.

Thank you so much for reading! If any of you are looking to expand your Ikea sofas or chairs, Comfort Works can definitely fix you up and transform your piece.  I am still so in love with how ours turned out! XO –

  1. Kathleen – I absolutely adore your home decor. It so classic & timeless but with fun twists and personal touches! I must admit I find myself copying a lot of your style in my own home. You could easily be a professional decorator in my opinion!

    1. And your chair made me want this chair – HA! But your new chairs are so pretty!

  2. That last pic with Lulu is precious, I was so happy to hear the good news about her health. As fur mama of two (with issues) it’s always such a relief when we are blessed with good news!

    1. Aww my heart goes out to you and your pets! I tell you, I thank my lucky lucky stars that Lu is doing well. She has put a spell on my heart, that’s for sure. Sending love to you and yours!!

  3. Kathleen- all of this is gorgeous, your style is amazing. Do you know where the mirrored side tray table in the second to last picture is from?

    1. Thank you Nicole! My mom got these for me about 10 years ago, so sadly I have no idea where they’re from but I linked a similar tray side table!

  4. In love with this photography. Truly that chair is the perfect addition and is such a great little revamp of the Ikea chair!

  5. Love it so much! I might even be tempted to try out a pleated skirt like yours, eek!
