Got young kids but also want a stylish living room? What you need is the elusive sofa with a removable, washable cover that can be easily cleaned. Here’s where you can find them in Singapore…
If you’ve been getting a case of home envy after getting a peek at the pads of lifestyle blogger Charlie Cameron of Lottie is Loving and super stylist Hong Henwood of Affordable Style Files, and know that buying a fab new rug is not going to fix your current living room situation, listen up. When you have dirty paws, fingers, feet and drooling, drippy, messy little mouths on your sofa, day in, day out, you need a sofa with removable covers. Period.
We learnt the hard way, and had to replace our newish sofa after a few short months, as a beige linen sofa without removable covers is a bad choice if you have little people in your house (note to self). After coming to terms with the fact our sofa was never going to be beige again, we hunted high and low to bring you the shortlist of where you can find the best washable, removable sofa covers in Singapore (and yes, we treated ourselves to a new couch).
Where to buy sofas with washable, removable covers in Singapore
We love this store for its stylish yet affordable pieces that transform our living space. And luckily, the good people over at Castlery know all about how important sofas with removable covers are when you’ve got littlies at home. We have the Pebble collection on our radar, which comes in on-trend forest green (also perfect for finding marks). If you’re on the fence about green, soften the look with some pink pillows (trust us, it works, check out the pics on the online reviews for more fab inspiration!) The range includes chairs, as well as two and three-seater sofas. The three-seater has plenty of space to house all the fam without you getting booted off. It always gets rave reviews from customers, too, so you don’t have to just take our word for it!

2. IKEA and Bemz (for covers!)
Oh IKEA! Is there anything you don’t do? IKEA will always be our go-to for practical staples for our home at purse-friendly prices. So, it’s no surprise that they’ve ticked the box for sofas with removable covers, too, yay! Opt for the Ektorp range, which is comfy and affordable. It’s more of a traditional style in terms of sofa, but is made to last with a 10-year guarantee to boot! It comes in a selection of neutral colours, as well as a few jazzier options! We say opt for muted, and if you get bored, you can always buy additional covers.
Or, even better, if none of the covers suit your style, hop online to Bemz, who are masters when it comes to making tailored covers specifically for IKEA sofas. Choose from a whole host of pretty colours and fabrics – we love their cord options at the min! Heads up: this brilliant online service is actually based in Sweden but delivers to Singapore!
Where: Online or visit IKEA Tampines or Alexandra. For IKEA covers, visit Bemz.com
3. NOA Home
If you’re looking for ultimate flexibility for your sofa set up, look no further than the Flow Sectional range at NOA. Perfect for small and large rooms alike, you can choose from left and right-facing sectional, U-shaped sectional, and even the XL sofa (which is BIG!). So whether there’s 3 of you, or 8, you’re well catered for! It also gets rave reviews for being super soft and comfy and comes in stylish cream, grey and charcoal, with a fancy chrome-plated finished on the bottom. And yes, the covers are removable – hooray!
Another favourite of ours, Originals also offers clever sofas with removable covers. We love the weekend range for a sofa built to last, with the added benefit of removable covers. Bonus, you can even choose your material – we are all about the 100% linen blend for hot climes of Singapore. Check out the showroom in Bukit Timah; we’re sure you won’t leave empty-handed…!
Where: 1 Bukit Batok Street 22 Level 5, Singapore 659592
If you’re looking for the ever-popular L-shaped sofa with removable covers, then the Ross L-shaped sofa over at Cellini might be the one! We love that there are over 17 fabric options to pick from and the choice of left or right configuration to suit your space. There are the all-important removable covers, so it’s kid-proof too; you just might have to fight them for who gets to put their feet up on the chaise longue part!
