Do IKEA Couches Come In Boxes? [All You Need To Know!]

If you are looking to purchase a couch, sofa, or lounge set from IKEA, you may be wondering whether or not they come in flat-pack boxes. Here is everything I have managed to find out on the topic!

Do IKEA Couches Come In Boxes?

Typically, all IKEA couches and lounge sets come in boxes that require assembly by joining the parts together. For a 2-seat IKEA sofa, this will usually come in 2 boxes that include the sofa base, cushions, legs, and supports. Customers can also see the “Packaging” details on the IKEA website to see how many boxes the couch has.

Do IKEA Sofas Come Assembled?

In almost every circumstance, IKEA sofas will not come assembled unless you are to purchase a used display unit in IKEA. Just like all other IKEA furniture items, IKEA sofas come in flat-pack boxes which require assembly.

To see the assembly process of making an IKEA sofa from the boxes, you can see the below video! P.S. It is a lot easier than it sounds!

How Many Boxes Does An IKEA Couch Come In?

Typically, IKEA 2-seater sofas come in 2 boxes, while 3-seater sofas come in 4 boxes. For larger corner and L-shaped lounges that can seat up to 6 people, these units come in 8 individual flat pack boxes.

How Are IKEA Couches Delivered?

IKEA does offer a sizable and flexible delivery service that will deliver to a great distance. In order to have an item delivered, simply request the service upon purchase of whatever items you have.

If your IKEA couch comes already constructed, then it will be delivered as such. So make sure to measure the sizes of your door frames.

If your IKEA couch comes flat packed, then it will be delivered as a set, with all of the necessary boxes.

Where Are IKEA Couches Made?

IKEA is a Swedish brand, with all of its products designed in-house by predominantly Swedish designers. However, the vast majority of their furniture is actually manufactured in Asia, in countries such as Vietnam, China, Malaysia, and Myanmar.

Does IKEA Furniture Last?

IKEA offers very low prices for their products, so it may be easily assumed that their products are of low quality. However, if users treat their IKEA furniture with a basic level of care, then IKEA furniture can last for many years before it will ever wear out.

If customers wish for top-quality furniture, perhaps even hand-crafted, then they may be better off at an independent furniture store or a high-end furniture retailer.

Why Is IKEA Furniture So Cheap?

IKEA prides itself on offering highly competitive prices and great value to its customers. IKEA is able to do this for a number of reasons.

IKEA furniture is flat packed, which means that IKEA do not have to hire craftsmen who specialise in constructing sofas, as they can easily be constructed by the customer at home.

IKEA flat-pack furniture also makes delivery far cheaper than average, because an entire variety of IKEA furniture can be delivered in just one shipment.

IKEA furniture also makes use of recycled materials as opposed to specially sourced woods or other more rare materials, this keeps costs down, and is also great for the environment!

Conclusion – Do IKEA Couches Come In Boxes?

Depending on which couch you purchase from IKEA, it may come in a series of boxes or may come already constructed. IKEA couches tend to come in multiple boxes due to their size and in order to make delivery a lot easier.
