[IKEA] Up to 40% off* GRÖNLID sofas

Personally, I don't have experience with the GRONLID series, but I figured this may be of interest to people looking for a couch.

An example, this sofa with a chaise is $380 off (Reg price $1099 -> $719): https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/groenlid-s ... s19256067/

In that link of the sofa with chaise, it has an average 4.7 star rating (out of 5) in 5 reviews. There is a 1 star review though. Not sure which review you're referring to.

The problem with buying sofas is you can spend $4000 on a $1000 sofa and $500 on a $1000 sofa and $500 on a $150 with the lower quality and overpriced being the norm. I would rather buy a car and deal with a dealership than deal with any furniture store. There is so much variance in quality and who is selling them. Even Costco seems to be more miss than hit. Looking for a sofa right now and Ikea is the only one that at least offers a relative value for the price.

Some reviews mention the fault in design. Buying lots of other stuff from Ikea, I would definitely pay attention to the reviews.

Landskrona are discontinued this year. Hoping for a +50% off sale on them like last year.

I made a post about this a while ago, you might find it handy:

In short, just find out what foam they use, what frame they use, and what fabric they use. See it if you can, pick up the cushions, pick up a corner of the couch. If the cushions are really heavy (firmness is irrelevant), the frame feels welded together without any flex, and the fabric is tightly woven (personally I also prefer synthetic due to stain resistance), then you might have a deal.

I never buy sofas from ikea anymore. While they seem engineered well, the materials they’re made with are absolutely terrible. We had one that used a steel tube for lateral support because it was packed full of pressboard/mdf and shit. The problem is, once something goes wrong with it (and it will) it becomes very hard to fix. No gluing will help it and it will eventually breakdown even more. At least with a hardwood framed sofa you can repair it if some how it broke. IKEA is fine for
other things that don’t bare a lot of weight.

I am still waiting for Strandmon Armchair (grandfather chair) GREY Color to go on sale. I think last year it was $149, but it was one day sale. Regular price is $299. I would be in for 2 qty for sure.

I ended up going with a Kivik instead, which has been great so far.

In general, with Ikea you get what you pay for. The midrange or most expensive stuff tends to be good quality relative to other brands, even more expensive items, while the cheapest stuff is crap that will often disintegrate even as you assemble it. They also have a really good warranty policy, and you know that Ikea isn't going to hassle or try to fight you if you have any problems.
We have 3 kiviks in the house. Sectional, and 2 sofas. For the price of the kivik you can't go wrong. I went to many stores including the Chesterfield shop and the kivik delivers the most bang for your buck imo. It's a bit more than this one but well worth the upgrade imo.

The sun is the only star that supports life that we're aware of so far, so this checks out.

Down the road I may think about this Kiviks Sofa. The Kiviks Loveseat, I would assume it is too small. Two Large Seat sofa would be a better option. My question is Kiviks sofa has different Fabric if you look at the picture very closely. Dark Grey Sofa (I think has lot of loose strand) where as Light Grey Sofa (compacted strand fabric). Which one would be ideal for the person who has itching problem. (Hypoallergenic). I would think light grey sofa would be better option. Or am I wrong and all fabric are same.

Color wise which one is better Dark Gray, Dark Blue, Red, Beige, or Light Gray.
I am leaning toward Dark Gray but for my need would be Light Gray.

Leons = the brick = $500 sofa, regular price $1500 on sale for $750. There may have been good deals on BF, but I gave up on Leons and the Brick. The quality for most of their items is the same as the hole in the wall furniture stores and their 'sale' price is the same sale every week. Why pay more for the same quality when you can go to a small furniture store and get the same thing for less.
