It’s no secret that here at Apartment Therapy we’re big fans of IKEA. With an assortment of stylish, budget-friendly furniture, it’s hard not to be a fan of the Scandi superstore. (I mean, we all have at least one IKEA find in our homes, right?) That being said, while we love the mega-retailer’s cozy couches and chic chairs, making these popular pieces your own can feel like an impossible task. What’s a budget-conscious style lover to do?

Say hello to Bemz. Founded on the idea of rejuvenating (and extending the life of) your IKEA furniture, this Swedish company sells custom fabric covers exclusively for IKEA sofas, armchairs, and more, as well as sofa legs that will fit on just about any IKEA sofa. Home to dozens of options in almost every color imaginable, putting your unique spin on that classic IKEA piece has truly never been easier.

AT’s Founder & CEO Maxwell Ryan is such a fan of Bemz, he collaborated with the company on two collections: a line of chic, eye-catching legs and a corduroy slipcover collection. And starting this Black Friday you can shop these collections (as well as the rest of the company’s offerings) and save 20 percent through Cyber Monday. However, dear reader, you don’t have to wait until then to take advantage of the savings: Bemz is giving AT readers an exclusive 20 percent discount (with free shipping on orders over $150) now through 11/25 with the code ATBF21.

To help you get a better idea of what these legs and slipcovers actually look like on an IKEA sofa, we rounded up a few examples you can shop below. Need more incentive to take part in this early-access sale? This is one of the last times you can order with guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery, so if a Bemz product is on your wishlist (or your holiday checklist), this is your sign that the time to shop is now.

Looking to jazz up your KARLSTAD? Apartment Therapy's Winter Moss sofa cover is a gorgeous option. Like the rest of the corduroy collection, the fabric features thick, wide channels that have a slight sheen for a glam look that screams anything but IKEA.

The Terence leg is the perfect way to add a classic yet contemporary touch to your IKEA sofa. Inspired by the work of legendary designer Terence Conran, this curvaceous leg comes in two sizes (the one pictured above is the taller, 18 cm option, but it’s also available in 14 cm) and is surprisingly versatile for such a bold design. Use it to add some height to your sofa, or simply to make your IKEA sofa feel a bit more distinctive.

The curved, sloped arm design of the FÄRLÖV sofa makes it one of the most inviting and comfortable in IKEA's collection. To add some color and dimension to your sofa, try this cover in our own Peacoat color. The richness of the blue combined with the smooth corduroy texture makes it feel extra luxe.

The Winston leg has a distinctly English feel that will add a hint of old-world drama to your sofa. But while the style is definitely traditional, that doesn’t mean it won’t work in a modern space as well. In keeping with the timeless vibe, it’s available in neutral shades of white and natural.

If your VIMLE sofa has seen better days, this is your chance to give it a new life. For some sweet serenity, go with the VIMLE cover in Seagrass. It's the perfect way to add a muted touch of color to your living space, in combination with the corduroy it's just made to be loved.

Suffice it to say, the Basil leg is one of the most playful options you could go for. Inspired by the ornate style of Baroque furniture (but with a simplicity that's totally Scandi), this round wooden furniture leg comes with a pointed tip on the bottom for a touch of elegance.
