Sarah asks:

Does anyone know if the Ikea Stockholm Sofa is comfortable?

I haven’t tried that particular one, but I bet it’s not.

IKEA is good for hard things: desks, tables, bookshelves, dressers, lighting, storage.

But their soft things are usually very bad: couches, beds, chairs, linens.

I suggest you get a couch from a “real” furniture store, and one that you can go sit on in person. I got mine from Raymour & Flanigan. They have a lot of great couches for similar prices as IKEA, and they’re all far more comfortable (and probably better-made). And you can easily negotiate free delivery.
