Hi Ian, we went to absolute first and then into Ikea, ( it's almost next door) I did like the Ikea Sofa's but we had bought by then, I have bought lots of stuff from Ikea but never tried to get anything delivered as it usually fits into the car, from experience with larger items like my bathroom cabinet if it's not in stock they wait for the next delivery and the cabinet was 2 months, don't know if this is usual timescale. I have also ordered stuff not in stock and reserved it for my next visit which in some cases has been 2/3 months and this has worked out ok.
Good luck with the Sofa hunting, if Ikea can't sort you out try Absolute, they were great,I was due to fly home in 2 days time so they delivered the next day even though it was a Fiesta and the store was closed, can't get much better than that for service and the prices are very reasonable.
