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.
Your final product will end up looking really puffy and overstuffed, but the fill will start to settle after a few weeks, so you want to pack it as full as you can. Next, move on to the seat cushions. Remove the cover and set to the side, and vacuum the cushions to get rid of any deteriorating foam.
This isn’t a sofa hack per se, but sometimes you can completely update a piece simply by changing what’s around it. Try some new art on the wall over the sofa, some new wallpaper on the wall behind it, or even new side tables and lamps on either side of it. When it's surrounded by different and beautiful things, your sofa might just look a little different and beautiful too!
