It fits the KARLSTAD like a glove and the cats are foiled … for now.
I made two boxes for two sofas. I just love it.
KARLSTAD is fairly sturdy. The frame just surrounds it. All of the stress remains on the sofa. I’ve had these sofas for about 18 months and see practically no change in the structure since I made it.
