This week, we’re debuting the Shipley Chesterfield Collection. It’s a gorgeous set, featuring a sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman. Made from recycled leather with eco-friendly rubber wood legs and a beautiful brass nailhead trim, the Shipleys are sure to please. But they’re more than just a good-looking bunch. With cushions that contain spring bags encased in six-inch thick high density foam, the Shipleys offer luxurious comfort at an unbelievable price.
We decided to do some quick comparison shopping at IKEA, which is often the go-to for budget-minded furniture shoppers. The Shipley Loveseat is on sale on our website for $499, so we wanted to see what $500 could get you at the Swedish home emporium. Here’s what we found:
It’s a cute chair, but the quality isn’t up to par with our Shipley Collection. The back cushion is made with hollow polyester fibers, and the fabric upholstery is polypropylene. Compare this with our Shipley Loveseat, which has 6-inch thick high density foam cushions with springs. We guarantee the Shipley Loveseat is 100x more comfortable than this IKEA one.
You don’t always get the best bang for your buck at IKEA. The Ektorp Loveseat costs as much as the Karlstad, but is made of polyester upholstery.
The Kivik Loveseat is slightly cheaper at $429. In terms of comfort and lifespan, the Shipley still wins. The Kivik’s seat cushion is made of only foam, while the Shipley cushions contain springs encased in foam for an ultra-luxe and pliant seating experience.
Check out the Shipley Collection now. Sale ends Sunday, September 2.
