Hey friends! The IKEA Kivik sectional is obviously a hot topic. It’s my most popular pin on Pinterest and I get questions about it all the time. So with that in mind, I created a video review to give you even more info!
Considering the Sectional
Purchasing a sofa is a big deal. We are just like most people and spend a lot of time on our sectional. Between watching movies, reading stories to grandkids, and overflow beds for sleepovers, our sectional gets used continually.
After I spotted the Kivik Sofa Sectional at the IKEA showroom, my wheels began to turn!
We had the Ektorp sectional for over three years and actually loved it. You can read that review here.
Modern Farmhouse Style
However, I had in mind something a little larger with deeper seating.
The square arms of the Kivik appealed to me for a more Modern Farmhouse aesthetic, which is my design style here at the cottage. I was inspired by the Pottery Barn Square Arm Comfort Sectional. But the Pottery Barn price was not inspiring!
The IKEA Kivik sectional was looking like a great option.
Just Let Me Know!
I was pretty sure I wanted to go ahead and purchase the Kivik sectional. But I did what most of us do these days and went searching online for reviews!
Let me tell ya, at the time, there just wasn’t much out there. I really wanted another blogger’s honest opinion, and I wanted to see it styled in a real person’s home.
The one review I did find was at the blog Dysfunctional Ever After. I appreciated her honest review.
But I wanted more!
That’s Why I Made the Video!
We’ve had the IKEA Kivik sectional for about eight months now. First it was in our living room and now it’s moved upstairs to our bonus room (where we put an insanely large tv).
If you want the written review with photos in our living room, you can take a look at that here.
Below is the video review. The sectional is now in our remodeled loft, that we’ve turned into a bonus room/family room kind of place.
Hey, in small homes, you have to use every bit of space. Nothing is “strictly decorative” in a cottage!
If you want to check out the before and after of the loft, you can find that here. I’ll be updating the photos with the IKEA Kivik in there once I get it styled. I’ve been thrifting some things for in that space, so stay tuned for the reveal!
I hope you enjoy the video and the written reviews on the IKEA Kivik sectional sofa. If these help you out in making a decision, then I’ve met my goal!
If you have any questions at all, let me know in the comments here on the blog, or on my YouTube channel.
Thanks for reading and talk again soon!
