TOTAL TIMEFRAME: 10 Weeks to make it, 6–10 weeks to ship it from Sweden.16–20 weeks

The price to make the Liljevalch Sofa is $14,878.93 plus the fabric which is $283.56 per meter and we would need 20 meters of fabric. So the entire cost of the couch would be $20,554.39.

Shipping the sofa: It will take between 16 and 20 weeks to make and ship the sofa to us (from Sweden and will cost $3,080.85, plus $400.00 in customs charges.

whenever you pick the fabric I can order for you! 🙂 xox
