Comfort Works: Great Day for a Giveaway~

This post is sponsored by Comfort Works.

Hello out there in blogland!! I am very excited to share a great company with you today!

Comfort Works is an Australian based company that makes custom slipcovers for IKEA sofas. I realize not everyone has an IKEA sofa, but never fear, Comfort Works also creates custom curtains, quilt covers and pillow covers! Yes, I said custom. But the great thing is that they are affordable as well.

Comfort Works contacted me a while back to see if I would be willing to review a slipcover for the Ektorp chair that is currently in my home office. Once I visited their website and saw all of the great fabric options, I was so excited, I jumped at the chance. Trouble is, there were so many great choices, I just wasn't sure what to do. No problem! They sent me a bunch of free swatches from my favorite fabrics so that I could make sure I was completely happy with my choice.

I ultimately settled on Elizabeth Green which was the perfect shade of aqua to go in my office. And once the slipcover arrived, I was amazed at the quality. The fabric was thick and soft, and completely washable. The slipcover went on like a dream. Overall, much nicer than the IKEA slipcover I had on the chair. Truly high quality for a great price. If your worried that the shipping from Australia might negate the affordable slipcover, you don't need to be. Just $25 flat rate shipping. Amazing, truly.



I really wish that the photos of my slipcover could do it justice. (That's what I get for having a home office in the basement - with no windows might I add.) But, trust me, it's lovely. And it's so nice to have an option besides the plain white cover I already had.

And today, you're in luck, because the good people at Comfort Works are offering $50 to one reader of the Shabby Nest to spend on anything Comfort Works has to offer. That means if you don't happen to have an IKEA sofa, you could spend it on a quilt cover, or curtains or a pillow cover.


So what are you waiting for? To enter simply leave a comment on this post. You can tweet, Facebook or blog about this giveaway for additional entries, but each entry must have it's own comment to be valid. Giveaway open until Friday, April 15 at 11:59 pm MST.


The legal stuff: I was provided with a slipcover in exchange for this product review. However, all opinions expressed in this review are entirely mine.


Good luck~

Peggy said...

This is wonderful! We are having an addition built and all decorating will have to be done on a shoestring. Which means some of the new furniture will be Ikea and the rest will be stuff that is "found" so it will be nice to have something that can be changed out and washed especially with 3 teen boys and a HUGE dog!

Thank you for this opportunity!

Love your new slipcover, Wendy! And that pillow on the chair too! I completely know what you mean about commenting! Lately I have been reading most of my favorite blogs on my phone in the morning while I snuggle with Lillie and my phone doesn't let me comment and of course I never get back on the computer to leave a comment later that day because I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off and then always feel bad! I love coming and checking out your beautiful blog ever morning, though!
