news: bemz’s serendipity slipcovers

if you have ikea sofas but don’t want to be stuck with the limited selection of slipcovers, then bemz is the place to go.

Bemz is a Swedish company that designs slipcovers for Ikea sofas and chairs. They recently released a new collection – Serendipity, inspired by Sweden’s 18th century Gustavian style.

“We noticed that Rococo themes are definitely in vogue right now, so we invited our designer, Katarina Wiklund, to create an update of traditional Gustavian Swedish designs,” says Bemz founder Lesley Pennington. “The new collections are available in 100 percent cotton and a luxurious linen and cotton blend from Belgium.”

the collection features rich, opulent, rococo-inspired floral prints and traditional swedish stripes and checks. i like the gustavian flowers on the tomelilla armchair best (pix below). i can imagine it looking really good in my reading nook.


but at €109.89, i have to settle for ikea’s slipcovers for the masses for now.

    Very expensive.

    Loved my sofa, hated the cover, so I decided to try a new cover from Bemz. Great decision! The cover fit perfectly and is very high quality. My sofa looks so much better now than with the original cover. They have a nice range of fabrics and colors to choose from. Do take the time to order samples, though. The colors can look different on different computer monitors and it’s good to feel the fabrics first hand. After getting samples I completely changed my mind on which type of fabric I wanted. I’m very happy with the result.
