Slipcover For My Ottoman

I have an ottoman in our sitting room/closet/changing area, which is basically one big open area.   I got a white slipcover last year from Ikea for one of our Ektorp chairs, which is in this area.  Love it!  For $25.00 what’s not to love?

The ottoman is on wheels and the fabric has a green stripe.  Very soft and comfy, but I wanted to tie it in with the chair.

Browsing on the Ballard Designs website I came across this ottoman slipcover.  I couldn’t resist for $45.00!   It’s a little bigger than my ottoman, so it’s going to be more of a “loose” slipcover look.

For the money, I think it’s an update that will work!

Kathy,
Thank you so much for posting this! Joni Webb at CDT turned me on to Ikea slipcovers as I was looking for a budget friendly alternative for my huge PB couch. The PB white denim slipcover was close to 600 smackeroos! Yikes! That's more than what I paid for the couch 10 years ago but a testament to the PB quality.
Anywhoo, I ordered 2 (I have 2 teens & a black Lab) Ikea Ektorp white denim couch slipcovers @ $25 each, the quality is every bit as good as PB and they fit perfectly!
I've wondered about ordering a couple of the Ektorp chairs and ottomans & wondered about the quality of those also. Would love your opinion too!

Hi Kathy,
Your chair and ottoman look wonderful together!
That little corner looks so comfy and I bet you spend time there with a good book and a glass of wine!

I like it! Perfect place to curl up and read a book! Or sit down and slip on your shoes!

Kathy, The slip covers look great. It's amazing how you can change the look of a piece so reasonably. I have been debating back and forth on buying the Ektorp sofa from IKEA. I keep hearing good things about it.

The set looks awesome and I think can go in any room in any decor. So clean and fresh looking!

Kathy honey these covers look really nice. I love that kind of look. Just me I guess or how I want to live.
I would love to see your whole room because I have no closets in this ole farm house and I have been seriously thinking about turning one end of the huge master bedroom into a closet, dressing area but not sure how I could do it so it would look good
Hope your having a great weekend
Love
Maggie

The chair & ottoman look casual and cozy - the perfect spot to sit back and relax with a good book :-)

There was so much to see at IDS, I know I missed a lot of great things. It really was quite overwhelming!

Hi Kathy...love the slipcovered look. I'm thinking that this is a great comfortable place to read a good book.
