Needs a New Sofa from
Incredibly UncomfortableIt is incredible how uncomfortable this sofa is. And it feels nothing like it did in the store. At first I thought it needed time to break in. Nope. The foam on the arms detaches and you have hard edges where you arm rests. It's hard to explain, but it's just ergonomically wrong in every angle. Worst piece of furniture I've ever owned. Side note: I have a lot of Ikea stuff I love, this sofa is just a bad product.

I thought it would get better, alas, it did not.I've been an IKEA shopper since the 80's, I've even bought and installed an entire IKEA kitchen, but this was my first couch purchase and I'm so disappointed. I bought the KIVIK after a lot of research and a lot of back and forth between this and more expensive couches, and while the couch has retained it's shape after a year, it is by far the most uncomfortable thing I've ever sat on. The cushions are like rocks. The fabric, while durable, it's not the least bit pleasant to sit on. I am looking to replace this thing already, and I've only had it a year.
I'm giving it a two star rating for the fact that it is indeed a couch, and it survived a year without falling apart. Also it was easy enough to assemble, but, like I said I've put an IKEA kitchen together so I'm not sure if that's a ringing endorsement.

Durable and comfortableI purchased this sofa 7 years ago for my therapy office, I bought a natural cover and two extra covers (the natural colored covers are not currently offered) expecting they would wear and soil easily. I have only used 2 of the covers and have washed and changed them out every three or four years. The cushions have maintained their shape and comfort. The height works well for everyone I see in my office. This sofa has been well used by adults and children. I have been so pleased with this sofa I am planning to buy two additional ones for my new office space to go with the old one...which actually still looks pretty new.

Great buyI bought a white Kivik sofa about 4 or 5 years ago when IKEA was giving a $50.00 store card as an incentive. Three moves after and the sofa is still in great shape. My grandson has slept on it when he comes visiting from the Navy, my younger son too. Except for a small tear caused by my puppy, the sofa still looks good, is comfortable, and proven a great buy. It’s modern lines loo’ great in my living and it’s amazing for relaxing with a book or good movie. I am planning to buy a new cover to repair puppy’s damage.

In love with this couch!This couch definitely exceeded my expectations! I was looking for a modern looking couch that was also comfortable and could be used to sleep on for guests, and this couch is exactly what I was looking for. It's firm but still cushion-y enough to be comfortable for sitting or sleeping and looks super chic in my living room. It's a pretty good size as well and it looks very high quality for the price. Assembly was relatively straightforward and took less than an hour! Super happy with this purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable modern-looking couch!

Good buy!Purchased as a basement sofa. Great couch for the money. I thought after reading reviews it would be uncomfortable, but I disagree, I think it's fairly comfy and has gotten even more so with time.

Ikea Regret from
Wow, the most uncomfortable sofa imaginableThis has got to be the most uncomfortable sofa I have ever owned. Trying out the floor model in the store it seemed pretty good, if a little bit firm. The floor model was very dirty, so I did not spend more than 30 seconds trying it out. I liked the deeper seat and thought it was the most modern looking of Ikea's sofas, so I ordered one online in the blue color.
Delivery was great, right on schedule. I put the sofa together in about an hour. No issues there. It feels very sturdy.
But, after sitting on it for just 15 minutes I now seriously regret buying this. All the cushions are way too firm. This is not the type of "comfy" sofa you can sink into for a movie night. These cushions are so firm it almost feels like the sofa is trying to push me off. My lower back is already starting to hurt, and I know I will probably never want to sit on this sofa going forward. Seriously, I am sitting on the sofa as I am writing this, and it is so uncomfortable, I want to get up and sit somewhere else.
The second complaint is the fabric cover. Do you like sitting on rough sand paper? Then maybe you will like this fabric. Seriously, this fabric is so coarse and abrasive -- it feels terrible against the skin. I had to put a blanket over the entire sofa so my skin won't get rubbed raw.
If this was a brand new sofa to the Ikea lineup I would be a bit more understanding, but this sofa has been around for a long time. They must know by now that the Kivik is incredibly uncomfortable, and just don't care to make it better.
So, to sum up:
-Easy to put together
-Looks modern enough
-Cushions are way too firm. Back problems will be inevitable.
-Fabric was created by a sadist.

Not comfortableIt took us over a month to chose between 3 Ikea sofas. Hours of sitting and deliberating. Unfortunately, once we put it together, the cushions are extremely hard and uncomfortable. It was nothing like the cushions in the show room, which were firm but giving. The cushion covers don't stay in place and have to be reset often with minimal use (there's two of us and we are rarely home). I have a lot of Ikea furniture that's been with me over 10yrs and still going strong. I'd hoped this sofa would last the same. We are disappointed to say the least.
