Very sad to see this piece go but are moving and it will not fit in our new place. Sofa is less than 16 months old and has been kept in a smoke free environment. Removable, machine washable covers. We do have a cat for those who are allergic.
It is a very comfortable couch, perfect for relaxing and watching movies or even for out of town guests. Since the back cushions are removable, one person can sleep on it perfectly.
Ikea doesn’t make it anymore but it still sells the slipcovers if you want to change the look. It looks like the link picture but in beige (photo from our apt shows the color): http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00183537/#/00183537
