Pimp My: Ikea Sofa and Chair

Tired of looking at your Göteborg sofa's bland, boring color, but less than inspired by the Ikea slipcovers available to you at the big blue Swede? Then check out Bemz for ways to improve your sofa's look without spending your entire paycheck.

Bemz offers slipcover solutions for a variety of Ikea sofas, chairs, and cushions, and you can request up to five free fabric samples mailed to you, so you can decide what will look best on your Ikea furniture.

All of the patterns and designs for Bemz are overseen by designer Katarina Wiklund, who, in my humble opinion, has done a lovely job of offering the international public an easy way to pimp their initially humble Ikea goods. The prices are really reasonable, too: To recover that raggedy Göteborg, it'll only set you back $306.61, and recovering an armchair is only a little over $100, which is a lot less than paying for a reupholsterer.

Is it worth buying an Ikea couch? I'm thinking about getting one since a regular couch can't fit up the narrow stairs to my apartment.

Yeah Ba-by!Love the color/print slipcovers... Although I love the white sofa as well. That's always the issue isn't it? Trying to make Ikea purchases not seem so generic!
