New Beginnings

Bemz can help to give your shabby Ikea pieces a fresh start. They sell ready made slip covers for Ikea's popular pieces such as the Tullsta, Klappsta, Ektorp, and Karlanda. If you don't have one of these chairs, scour Craigslist (don't pay retail) and then start clicking away on Bemz! Here are a couple of my favorities:


Klappsta in Symmetry - $115

What a smart business idea!

awesome find. i have to Tullsta chairs in my living room and am getting really tired of them. not to mention that they're beige and started to show lots of wear. i was planning on attempting slip covers myself by these prices are pretty reasonable and there are adorable fabric choices

Once again an excellent idea. Only your link to Bernz is not working and I can't find them on-line. Do you know how to track them down?
