As you can see in the picture, this is one lovely amalgamation of classic design and modern looks. With firm back cushions support and wide seat space, it is surely an ideal pick for users looking to buy a comfortable yet beautiful sofa that could blend into any guest bedroom or living room décor effortlessly.

Having a low back and high seat ensures that the user gets enough support in his/her lower back and doesn’t feel any kind of discomfort after sitting for long hours on this couch.

The one we bought is a 3 seater version with chaise add-ons, which means you get an extra set of cushion leg space for your guests when they come over for a sleepover.

Another notable feature of Nockeby sofa is that, you get four individual cushions instead of two big ones which ensure that the user can easily wash or clean one of these while making sure that the others are useable.

Being an IKEA product, this model has limited choices for material. Only two material types are available for this model. One, the PU leather and the other one, the fabric. These materials come in multiple shades but you can’t really get a combination of both these shades on this particular sofa range.


  • Perfect for people who love a cozy and soft feel in their rooms.
  • Made using best quality materials and thus is quite sturdy
  • Compact style makes it perfect for smaller rooms too
  • Low maintenance


  • Limited color options available on the website
  • Only two material types to choose from
  • Has no waterproof cover
  • Not Stain resistant

The design, as you can see, is quite sleek and compact. Nockeby ikea couch doesn’t use an extra furniture frame to make its arms. Rather, it uses a thick material with buttons on them to hold the armrests which are positioned above the backrest of this model.

This design has been widely appreciated by many customers all over the world and is used to model out other designs as well.

The Nockeby couch uses four cushions instead of two big ones which can be easily shifted around to achieve a comfortable seating posture every time you sit on it.

IKEA Nockeby Seat Cushions And Comfortability

As far as cushioning and comfortability is concerned, we found that Nockeby didn’t disappoint us either.

The firm seat and the soft cushions ensure that you don’t keep adjusting your body posture in order to get a perfect feel of comfort. As an IKEA product, it is surely overpriced but when looked from its quality perspective, we can see why Nockeby costs more than most other sofa models in the same size and material.

Overall, we think it is a solid 8.5/10 when it comes to comfort and ease of use. So, if comfort is what you usually go for, this sofa should be on your next home interiors update checklist.

Durability of The Nockeby

This particular sofa model has been in the market for quite some time now and so far, no major durability issues have been reported by customers who have bought this range.

Nockeby is made using hardwood legs which ensure that it stays in its place even when constantly used by multiple people.

Some customers complain that Nockeby is too soft and gets deformed when used regularly by multiple people. However, we found that this was a non-issue for most customers and is only reported by a handful of people who have used it on a daily basis.
