Emma revamps an old IKEA sofa with the help of a sustainable BEMZ cover – look what a difference it made!
Thinking twice before buying new is a lot kinder to the environment and it’s a rule that I try to stick to at home. All furniture gets the same treatment, how can I give it a new lease of life? Moving house is stressful enough without having to hunt – and pay for! – a new bed, table or sofa.
Promising to make your sofa look like something from an interiors magazine, Bemz offer over 250 different fabrics to revamp even the most tired of old Ikea chairs and sofas.
Their Respect collection is made from recycled cotton which makes it all even more eco-friendly. I ummed and ahhed over the 17 colourways in this sustainable fabric but in the end I went for a super tasteful Melange Silver Grey. All the covers are machine washable – hello and goodbye baby puke – so even if you pick the colour of your dreams you can guarantee it’ll stay looking fresh.

I for one am loving the new look, so does Stella the dog – even though she doesn’t look it!
