Bemz – ‘up-cycle’ your Ikea furniture
Bemz – not exaclty a second hand store but it does allow you to upcycle & reinvent your existing furniture. I love intrigue & that is something this store definitely has – so much so that I made a special trip to Bemz to speak to an extremely helpful sales assistant exactly their store was about.
Whether it is new furniture you’re after or you want to give a new lease of life to a well-loved Ikea favourite, this store has the answer. They offer a wide range of made-to-order covers (for everything from stools, chairs, sofas & even beds) from your choice of what seems like hundreds of plain, patterned, designer & vintage fabrics.
They don’t create covers for the entire Ikea furniture range but do have covers for the many of the most popular styles (including some lines which Ikea don’t even make anymore – so definitely worth a look). Prices vary & depending on what you have, it could be a fairly thrifty way of upcycling some of your old furniture.
(As they ship to over 40 countries, you don’t even need to be in Stockholm for this one!)
