    Question: I have the Ektorp 3 seat sofa and loveseat in leather. I would like to change it up during the summer. Is there any way to put a slip cover on these couches? The bottom cushions are attached. Ugh…

    I am looking for a slip cover in the following dimensions Ektorp sectional.
    3 cushioned couch is 91.5 inches long , 30 inches high, Cushions are 29″ deep x 24″
    2 cushion couch is 57″long end arms are 37″
    do you make slipcovers in these dimensions.

    From what I understand this is an older style of the Extorp 5 cushion total.
    Thank you

    I purchased an ikea ektorp cover to fit my old (what I thought was ektorp) loveseat. It almost fits, but doesn’t make it. The loveseat is just a bit deeper, like maybe 3 or 4 inches, than the cover. Other than that things seem right on. Has ikea changed their sizing of the emptor loveseat in past 10 years?

      Hi Leah!

      It seems that IKEA did mention that the Ektorp Sofa Bed might have changed, but the Ektorp 2 seater should have been the same throughout the years so most likely your sofa might not be the Ektorp after all. Typically when an IKEA sofa model changes, the name changes with it as far as we know 🙂

      If you’re interested in a custom fitting cover we can make it for you, just shoot us a photo to

    I bought an IKEA Ektorp 3 seater sofa in 2000 and when I bought a replacement sofa cover from Ikea it no longer fit. Do you happen to know the dimensions of that sofa in 2000 (it didn’t have a chaise lounge – was a 3 seater, not sofa bed)?

      Hey there Bronwin!

      As far as we know it should be the same as IKEA never changed the Ektorp 3 seater sizes; is yours not around these dimensions?

      Width: 218 cm, Depth: 88 cm, Height: 73cm

      Do drop us an email at and we’ll help you out!

    Do you know if the Ektorp loveseat slipcovers will fit the 2 seater Ektorp sofa bed?

      Hi Claire,

      Unfortunately they wouldn’t fit as the sizes are completely different – the Ektorp 2 seat sofa bed is larger than the regular loveseat.

      Hope this helps!

    I have an Ektorp 2 seater (not sofa bed) that needs a new cover. The measurements are approximately. Sent pictures to Ikea who confirmed this was Ektorp…not year.

    62 width across the back
    33.5 height from the floor
    40 depth along the side

    The cushion seat is 31.5

    The replacement cover I purchased does not fit. Not sure of the year. Any guidance would be appreciated.

      No problem Donna,

      Just send in a photo of your couch to us at and we’ll be able to confirm whether or it is the Ektorp 2 seater 🙂

      For the most part though, the dimensions don’t seem to fit with any Ektorps we know so it’s quite possible that it’s not an Ektorp altogether.

      Hope to hear from you soon nevertheless!

      Of course you can get covers for it Vivian,

      But if you’re not entirely sure if it’s an IKEA Ektorp model – kindly send a photo to us at firstly, just to be doubly sure what sofa it is 🙂

      Based off the measurements you’ve provided it sounds like a 3 seater but best to send us that photo first.

      Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hopefully you can help us. We purchased a Pottery Barn basic 2-piece sectional off of Craigslist about 5 years ago. We are looking to replace the slip covers, but in our research we have found that our 2-Piece L-shaped sectional (a Right Arm Return sofa and a Left Arm Love Seat) is approx 96″ x 96″ which is closer to the dimensions of the Ikea Ektorp than the PB Basic. We bought the Ektorp slip covers from Ikea and they almost fit, but there is a difference in the quality of construction, the chsuoons are all snugger, and there is a detail in the “shoulder” where the arom meets the back. There are no labels or identifying marks on the sofa anywhere so we can’t tell if it’s a PB Basic, an Ektorp or something else entirely. It does have round plastic legs like the Ikea, and the dimensions match the Ikea, except for those corners. Also, the Ikea has one slip cover for the entire L but we have seperate covers for the loveseat and the sofa.

      Hey Jeff!

      Would your sectional be either of these?

      If not, do send us a photo to and we’ll help you get the right slipcover for your sectional 🙂

    We have an ektorp 2+2 sleeper. Is it a different cover than the ektorp 2+2?

      Hey Chris,
      The Ektorp Corner (2+2) Sofabed/Sleeper Sofa is indeed different, so their covers aren’t interchangeable. It’s available on our website here:

      Hope this helps 🙂

    Does the older style ektorp sofa come apart? It was purchased 10 years ago.

      Not too sure actually, John!

      Do you have a picture of it that you can send to us at This way we might be able to narrow down exactly which model and version you have – we’re definitely sure that the more recent Ektorp (5-7 years) can be taken apart as they come flat-packed.

    I saw you answered that a 2-seater Ektorp sofa cover won’t fit a 2-seater sofabed. Will a 3-seater Ektorp cover fit a 3-seater sofabed?

    Thanks so much for having all the answers!

      Chuck at | | Reply

      No worries Liz,

      Unfortunately the measurements for the Ektorp 3 seater sofa bed and Ektorp 3 seater are completely different despite having a similar shape;

      At the largest width, the 3 seater sofa bed is about 10cm larger than the 3 seater meaning the covers aren’t going to fit for sure.

      Hope this helps!

    Hi, I have 3 of the Ektorp Bakamo 2-seater sofas purchased around 2000, they are definitely Ektorp. They were originally styled with 4 large back cushions and 2 smaller ones, (1 each end) I have since had 2 new back cushions made for each sofa (as is the current style of the 2 seater Ektorp)
    The measurements for these sofas at widest points are: W 196cm D 93cm H70cm.
    I sent for replacement Ektorp covers from Ikea, but they were far too small.
    I notice, looking at your measurements for the 2 seater Ektorp sofa, that these measurements are also much smaller than my sofas.
    Would I have to have new covers made to measure?

      Hi Cheryl,

      I think you might have mistaken a couple of models together – the Ektorp and Backamo are two different product lines from IKEA so our slipcovers will only work for the original model that you purchased at IKEA itself.

      Having said that, it’s best to send a photo to us at so we can determine exactly which model you have and whether we already have existing template for it to provide you covers with.

      Otherwise, you might need new covers made-to-measure instead.

      Hope this helps!

    I just wanted to confirm that the Ektorp 2 seater with chaise dimensions from 2010 are different the same chair now?

      Hi Michelle,

      As far as we know, the Ektorp with chaise dimensions have remained the same but if you want to be a 100% sure, you can always send us a picture of your sofa firstly followed by measurements to confirm.

      Hope this helps!
