Renovating a house is a funny thing… you start one room and in the midst of that project, you start to cast an editing eye around to the other rooms. Or at least that’s the trap I keep falling into! Lately I’ve been feeling like the living room needed a bit of a refresh, especially since I haven’t changed that room much in almost a year. One major change we made recently was to get an IKEA couch and then increase the drama with a new slipcover from Bemz; the effect is quite dramatic, but also very livable and comfy!
When Bemz initially reached out to partner, I was really excited to work with them because I have always wanted a linen sofa. The thing is that I could never actually afford a linen sofa! Thankfully, Bemz is known for making stylish covers for IKEA pieces. Once I’d selected a sofa with clean lines, I ordered free swatches in a variety of colors and stripes. It was really easy to order them — the hard part was picking just one!
I was really pleased to find out that not only is their linen dreamy and the perfect weight, but also machine washable. When the cover arrived, I couldn’t help but bury my face in it. It’s not hyperbole when I say this: I want every surface in my home to be linen. I love it that much.
I was also delighted to find out that these high-quality sofa covers are tailor-made, meaning that each one is custom made for you as soon as you order it. This ensured that each corner of my sofa was perfectly covered, no awkward sagging, draping, or adjusting after you have a movie night. The new slipcovered sofa looks so sophisticated… my dream.
Before this experience, I was definitely someone who groaned at the mention of a slipcover. I grew up in a house where my mom always draped these unwieldy, slippery slipcovers over our sofas that were just constantly disheveled looking. There was no way to get comfortable without totally messing up the slipcover! I think I was a bit traumatized, to be honest. This experience with Bemz was so positive though that I think I’m on Team Slipcover now!
