No one does affordable furniture as well as IKEA, and that includes their sofas! But you may be wondering… are there any vegan IKEA sofas?
None of IKEA’s sofas are currently certified as vegan-friendly. However, the majority of IKEA sofas contain no explicit mention of animal products in their composition (when non-leather covers are chosen). These include sofas from the PÄRUP, VIMLE, KIVIK, SÖDERHAMN, VRETSTORP, ÄPPLARYD, BACKSÄLEN, LANDSKRONA, SMEDSTORP, LINANÄS and VISKAFORS ranges.
I have made several attempts at contacting IKEA for them to confirm which of their products were 100% vegan, but these were unsuccessful. To me, making the best decision with the information we have fits in with the definition of veganism (text bolded by me):
Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment.the vegan society
At IKEA, each sofa comes in quite a range of shapes. I’ve included options for every budget and links to the rest of the range:
The PÄRUP range of sofas is simple and elegant. I love that it comes in different shades of grey. If I was looking for a versatile 3-seater sofa, this would be high on my list!

Now I’ll be honest: this sofa is quite simple and it isn’t the item that will wow your guests. However, if you like bold artwork and colourful sofa cushions, the VIMLE range could provide a great neutral backdrop. It could also look nice and peaceful in a coastal-inspired home.

The SÖDERHAMN range of sofas would complement a home decorated in a more modern style. I like the colour and sixties vibes in the image below, but I believe it would also suit a more neutral and minimalist look if that’s what you were into.

The U-shaped version of the KIVIK sofa in this bold green colour would be great for the midcentury “conversation pit” that has seen a resurgence lately.

This classic range of sofas would be great in a more transitional or traditional home. The photo below illustrates this well, creating a comfy vibe through moody neutrals and jewel tones, paired with traditional shapes.
VRETSTORP 3-seat sofa-bed, in Totebo light beige
This sofa would look great in a mid-century modern room, a bit like the image below, or in a more industrial / modern home.
ÄPPLARYD 3-seat sofa, in Lejde grey/black
Now, I’m not going to lie, this sofa style is giving me strong bachelor-pad vibes. But if you’re happy with a more casual look in your home (and hidden extra storage), then this might be the sofa for you!
BACKSÄLEN 3-seat sofa, in Blekinge white
Now we very nearly chose this sofa for our lounge, but it was a smidge too big and would have made the room proportions look odd. (Pssst, here’s what we’re going for instead!) I love the buttoned seats and wood legs in the LANDSKRONA range – the sofas look a lot more expensive than they are!

This sofa is the perfect mix of neutral and yet interesting. The legs and shape create visual interest, but it would fit in with many different decor styles.

This sofa is the cutest little thing! If you have an awkward space in your home, it might benefit from this compact seating solution… And it’s small enough to fit in your car!

And to finish off, a new classic! Is that a thing? I don’t know, but in any case, this sofa would add a touch of class to any home. By the way, has anyone else noticed the trend towards more sculptural sofa legs?
