Slipcovers are the tailored suits of the furniture world, and legs are the fancy shoes. Put them both on and you’ve got one chic sofa that cuts a dash! Bemz—the premiere maker of beautiful, washable slipcovers for IKEA sofas and chairs, all made to order in Europe—is giving one reader’s sofa a makeover with the slipcover of their choice plus four replacement furniture legs designed by our very own CEO and founder Maxwell Ryan.

Maxwell Ryan x Bemz by Apartment Therapy

Available exclusively on, the Maxwell Ryan x Bemz by Apartment Therapy collection of legs transforms the sofa that everyone has into the sofa that no one has ever seen. The collection includes three styles: Terence, Winston, and Basil.

Maxwell shared his inspiration for the collection and gave us a sneak peek into what the design process was like:

“I’ve been working for the past six months with our friends in Stockholm on this new concept, and now it’s ready for its official debut!

“When looking for inspiration, I start surfing my favorite websites, trawling for images and adding them to a Pinterest board. Since many modern legs can be a bit boring, I went back to look for older legs to learn the language of the traditional, turned wood leg. I also thought that this older perspective would cross very nicely with IKEA design.

“Then I began sketching, simplifying older designs, but also giving them a stronger gesture. My inspiration quickly developed into a fantasy: I was taking IKEA out of Sweden and introducing it to some dashing European personalities, from England to Italy. By the end of the process, we’d boiled it down to three final shapes, two heights and a lovely color palette.”
