Since it’s an old armchair, the DIY route is worth a try. You don’t even need to know how to work a sewing machine.
Good luck and happy hacking! If you do make a cover, we’ll love to see it.
#2 Mystery IKEA armchair
Bought this armchair about 10 years back and although the frame is sound the fabric covering is in a really bad state!
Wanted to know if IKEA still make covers for this or if anyone else does but can’t identify the armchair so finding it hard to research.
Apologies for the terrible picture!
Hope you can help!
Readers have chimed in and said it could be a TOMELILLA (pictured on the catalog cover below) but I’m not convinced. It looks similar in many ways except for the arms and the cushion seat is shaped as a “T”.
I think the styling is closer to a STOCKSUND except for the backrest. But the STOCKSUND was not in production in 2005, so that strikes it out.
Unfortunately, IKEA will not continue production of slipcovers for discontinued sofas or armchairs. So, no luck there.
What to do?
Follow the no-sew video tutorial above and make yourself a chic cover. We’ll love to see it.
Others with better sleuthing skills may be able to identify these IKEA armchairs? Do let us know in the comments below.
