Thank you Nicole -
I have had this sofa for at least five years and been able to wash the covers with no problem (not putting them in the dryer of course) but lately one of my cats has begun shredding the cover and it has also gotten pretty old and sun faded after all this time. Washing no longer refreshes it that much.
I have not been in an Ikea in a while as we moved pretty far away, but my researches show that this sofa has indeed been discontinued - probably towards the end of 2006. Searches for the precise cover name produce even fewer results than the sofa name -
- so I have stuck with the sofa name.
I understand that discontinued slipcovers can be available on a store by store basis, but that info is not available online. And apparently store personnel do not necessarily dig around if you are not there in person - so I feel stuck. I can not drive 250 miles one way on the off chance a cover will be there! LOL.
I started to ask Bemz, but thought that sounded like a slow solution. Have others found them to be quick?
Thanks much Nicole - I appreciate your reply!
