Not long ago it was deep wintertime and I was roaming the streets of Stockholm with eight design blogger friends. It was one Stockholm evening that we were invited to the beautiful Bemz showroom in the Swedish capital. We were welcomed by a super friendly crew and the Bemz founder Lesley Pennington. Naturally, we made ourselves comfortable on colorful sofas with Bemz covers and enjoyed tidbits and drinks while we were introduced to the success story of the company and asked to accept a little design challenge: we had to create our own cushion cover.
The design challenge was really fun although I was totally out of space and had no idea where to start from and then I had too many ideas so that the end result was pretty chaotic to say the best. But I didn't mind because I was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, swatches and colours. Thanks again for a fun evening, Bemz!
Bemz is a fantastic way to freshen up the most popular Ikea sofas and chairs and style up your cushions. The custom covers for Ikea furniture come in all kind of colours, patterns and fabrics - it is up to you to choose and define your personal lifestyle. This idea really speaks to me - it gives you the freedom to decide what you want for your home and it enables you to update your furniture without being forced to buy new pieces and spend a lot of money.
Do you own an Ikea sofa or chair at home? And what about the cover? Would you consider changing your cover any time soon?
