This sofa is very similar to the Ektorp by Ikea. Bemz does gorgeous striped covers to fit the Ektorp similar to this one. Hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Book Tour: 'Coastal Modern'
Beach classic. Clarke refers to the quintessential relaxed and rambling New England beach "cottage" when defining this look, recalling the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport, Massachusetts. To keep things livable and comfortable, Clarke recommends avoiding having too much stuff. Instead, he advises, "simplify to fewer larger pieces, arranged symmetrically to allow free movement." Clarke updates the beach classic look while paying homage to its traditional past, freshening things up with new (but still casual) upholstery, using natural materials like canvas, sea grass and glass. While he's careful to edit, he is sure to incorporate beloved items, from black and white photographs to favorite beach reads.
Rebecca Heane added this to Elements of Classic Coastal Style
Light neutrals and stripesPainting the whole room in varying shades of white makes a great background for showing off soft furnishings and accessories. Use striped fabric — particularly widely spaced stripes — for upholstered furnishings to create an instant coastal look.
Becky Harris added this to 21st-Century Looks for Shabby Chic Fans
Go coastal modern. Warm neutrals replace Shabby Chic's soft pinks and greens; while the sofas have deep, cushy upholstery, the thick stripes give them straight lines. For more notes on the look, check out more from coastal modern connoisseur Tim Clarke.
Natalie Myers added this to 11 Elements of the Perfect Sunroom
8. Decorations. If your sunroom has sealed windows and French doors, there is no reason to hold back from decorating it with your favorite home accessories. Framed prints, books, mirrors, candles, vases etc. will really kick it up a notch.
Swap out your light for a capiz pendant. Capiz shells have a slightly iridescent quality that gives them a luxurious but still beachy feel. Capiz pendants and chandeliers reflect the light in a beautiful way.See more about capiz shell lighting
