If we were any better at math we would have figured out that cats + baby = slipcover before spending so much on our now trashed sofa. Between the scratched arms and sticky upholstery we would happily board a time machine to instead buy a comfortable, no-frills Ikea couch knowing we could spruce it up (or change up the decor) with a Bemz slipcover made perfectly to fit many of Ikea's couches and chairs. To add insult to our already injured couch, we just read that iconic Finnish textile makers Marimekko are now teaming up with Bemz in a new line of slipcovers for Ikea products.

When we've looked at slipcovers in the past the fabric choices were usually bland chambrays in plain blue, cream and maybe green, but Marimekko is nothing if not bright, fresh and bold. Bemz will be offering eleven Marimekko prints as slipcovers for chairs and sofas. Even if the Marimekko collection isn't for you, Bemz has dozens of other colors and prints to choose from.

Who would you like to see Bemz team up with next?
