Klippan Corner Sofa Conversion and Longer Oak Fence Post Legs


Materials: KLIPPAN sofa x 2

Firstly, I cut the arm off one of the sofa’s. This made a very comfy place for two to stretch there legs out across and still have enough space for one person at each of the ends.

I then decided that the sofa was far too low on those metal legs, and my local pub was having a new fence, so I used the old oak posts to raise it by the same again. This transformed the sofa making it the perfect height to get on and off and sit comfortably on. I always thought they were a bit low!

I later ordered some replacement covers from eBay as you can see in the photo.

Perfect compact comfy sofa, that can simply be refreshed by some new covers every 5 years or so…

    hi. so, you removed one arm. could you show some photos of this? and maybe some close-up shots of how the cover now fits where the 2 klippans come together?

    i have a 4 spot klippan and a 2 spot klippan + stool. new covers would be an option, but only if it is really easy and comfy to transform it into a corner sofa.

    thank you.
