Scandi style. New York energy.
We’ve teamed up with our favourite Big Apple designer, Apartment Therapy Founder and CEO Maxwell Ryan, to create a unique new collection of furniture legs. Guaranteed to elevate your sofa – literally – this vibrant four-piece collection joins Bemz’ existing range of furniture legs – taking our signature Scandinavian style, and infusing it with a bold, cosmopolitan spirit.
So, what’s the big deal with changing legs on furniture?
“Legs are the shoes of the furniture world. It’s funny, because people always think that because shoes are way, way down – that nobody’s paying attention. But when anyone walks into a room, the shoes are always the thing that make the impression.”
– Maxwell Ryan, CEO & Founder, Apartment Therapy
Contemporary yet classical
Our Maxwell Ryan x Bemz by Apartment Therapy collection draws its inspiration from the familiar – taking classical forms and exaggerating them for a look that’s contemporary yet comforting. Building on Bemz’ signature Scandinavian aesthetic – with its natural lines, geometric shapes and subtle organic tones – the new range adds a layer of drama and versatility – offering voluptuous curves, rich colour profiles, and vibrant character.
Winston: a taste of the past
Inspired by classic furniture designs like the English Chesterfield or rolled armchair, the round Winston furniture leg has a mannerly stoutness – giving you a modern take on the traditional English country club. Available in timeless white and natural wood, it takes its name from Winston Churchill – a strong-willed character that can’t fail to make an impression on your space. An elegant addition to almost any sofa, we think Winston carries this IKEA Karlstad beautifully.
Terence: Bibendum is back
A bold new take on a classic 20th century icon, this sculptured wooden furniture leg borrows its bubbly silhouette from the boisterous form of the Bibendum. Inspired by the work of legendary designer Terence Conran, this curvaceous leg adds a playful touch to your sofa – drawing the eye, instantly. Available in two heights – 14 cm and 18 cm, Terence comes curated in grey, black and white, and in Apartment Therapy’s signature colour: a deep, evocative red.
Basil: bashful baroque
Featuring a playful pointed tip on the bottom, this contemporary sofa leg pays homage to the ornate style of Baroque furniture, but with a simplicity that’s totally Scandinavian. Measuring 10 cm high, the small, round Basil sofa leg has a shy, almost flirtatious style. Perfect for creating a sophisticated, low-slung lounger look, it provides a soft and alluring contrast to IKEA’s modern utilitarian style.
