EKTORP Leather Sofa Construction
When buying a sofa, no matter how expensive or inexpensive, the most important thing to consider is the internal skeleton and the cushion materials. The leather, which is dyed through, top-grain leather with a treated, embossed and pigmented surface, is also key to a long-lasting piece and one that is also extremely family friendly. Expect to pay roughly $700 for the EKTORP leather sofa.
Some basic construction features of this IKEA classic are:
- Seat surfaces and armrests in a soft, hard-wearing, easy-care grain leather
- Seat cushions filled with high-resilient foam and polyester fibers that provide excellent seating support
