What's special about us

Bemz is a Scandinavian design company that lets you give your IKEA furniture a personal twist and a new life.

Style + sustainability made simple

Bemz launched in 2005 by making covers to fit the most popular models of IKEA sofas, armchairs and chairs – even the discontinued ones  with the idea of extending the life of a product in a customised way. There's no reason to throw away a perfectly good piece of IKEA furniture if the original fabric is damaged or no longer suits your taste. We also have a complementary range of other home textiles such as curtains, bedspreads, bedskirts and cushion covers  all sold online to 42 countries around the world - to help you create a personalised, coordinated look at home.

Maximum personalisation, minimum waste

We believe that a home is a reflection of who you are - that's why we offer hundreds of fabric choices (including some from famous designers), almost all of which can be made into any one of our products. Bemz is about personal choice: you select the product you want, find inspiration and advice on our website or by contacting us, and try out your favourite free fabric samples. You decide how to mix and match our fabrics and products, then we make it and ship it home to you. We're not interested in stockpiling a warehouse full of unsold goods - that's why all of our products are sewn to order (and why it takes up to 4 weeks for you to receive them). What's more, all of our products are machine washable - extending the life of your furniture for years to come.

Shop with confidence

Our focus is and always has been quality, design and sustainability. We focus on 100% natural materials in a variety of fabric qualities, created with care in a European factory where we personally know the seamstresses and their working conditions. All of our products are durable, machine washable and made to fit beautifully. That’s why we offer a quality guarantee on all of our products for 3 years. If for whatever reason you change your mind, you can send your order back to us within 2 weeks for a refund.
