This is what it looked like when I arrived. As you can see, it actually had frown lines and wrinkles. What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.
IKEA furniture tends to be considered more functional than luxe, but this deep gray sofa is undeniably glam. The velvet portion is actually a cover, making it a cinch to keep clean. A tufted seat and two round bolster pillows add an air of sophistication to this sofa, while the mahogany legs keep it grounded.
One of the downsides of some low-profile couches can be the lack of space between the bottom of the couch and the floor. While this legless aesthetic works beautifully in larger rooms, smaller rooms need a visual separation—a.k.a. actual couch legs—to keep the space airy. Joybird's Hughes Sofa pulls this look off wonderfully. The couch remains low enough to keeping the ceilings feeling sky-high, but isn't so blocky that it crowds smaller living spaces.
