I need to buy two sofas. I'm dabbling, have been for ages, between Ikea Landskrona and a Sofology Hetty. Both are plain and minimalistic which is what I want.
I'm a bit reluctant with the Landskrona as the back cushions are velcro attached, meaning it cannot be reversed to even out wear. I've often bought before at Ikea without any problem, though looking through their current sofa offerings I'm wondering if the quality is a bit reduced? Never bought at Sofology and have seen some horror stories online, as well as the 8+ weeks for delivery, advantage with the Hetty is all cushions can be flipped etc.
Anyone got either of these and can comment on quality durability? And the Sofology experience?
I'd rather put buying off but can no longer as current sofas are shabby.
Thanks for any help.

£716 Ski fund (cash back and interest only).
The whole package at that time came to £810 including delivery. Which felt like a lot, then but we haven't regretted it.
Obviously, M&S furniture may not be made in the same way now or last as long - manufacturers obviously don't want that or they'd go out of business - but we have been thinking, instead of replacing them, of having them re-covered since we are a bit fed up of the same colour. But that's the only reason. They are very well made and very good quality. No way are they shabby.
So, that is just my own experience and my own opinion, obviously. But you could do worse than to just have a quick look at their website.
I hope you find exactly what you are looking for, I know it's a minefield out there.
Sure some will say theirs was fine but I won't be going near them with a barge pole
