A green option: here is a solution that allows you to restart and restyle your IKEA furniture.

was started by Lesley Pennington when she went on maternity leave and decided to do something better with her work life afterwards.

Named after her four children (four!), Bemz sells removable, washable slipcovers for sofas, armchairs and cushions which fit most IKEA models. All covers are 100% cotton and prewashed so that they won't shrink. There is a wide variety of colors AND patterns, but you may be surprised that the covers cost half as much as your sofa itself. Still, it's a not a bad investment if it gives your piece a new lease on life.
