How to update your old sofa without buying a new one


Design updates in our home in France. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comHave you ever looked at your old sofa and thought…“argh you ugly thing I can’t stand you anymore!” ? Well it was pretty much how I felt about our old sofa in our holiday home in France. We bought it eight years ago and while it is still very comfy and serves a perfect purpose for our home that has often two or three families and lots of kids hanging out, in the past two or three years I had grown really tired of its sight…

I attempted several times to change its look by covering it with a white sheet, adding some blue cushions to give it a Summer vibe and even trying half-hearted to convince Steve that we needed to buy one but really, we didn’t need a new sofa, we needed a new cover and here comes Bemz which I mentioned here.Design updates in our home in France. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comBemz is a company that makes new covers for any pieces of furniture from Ikea, which I think is such a smart concept! So I ordered the Espresso Brero linen by Designers Guild which is very beautiful and stylish and I couldn’t be happier. This has completely changed and modernised the look of the room. Design updates in our home in France.

If you need a new cover for your Ikea sofa, give Bemz a go. They are moving warehouse and have covers at 50% OFF. Have a great Sunday xoxo
