Ikea’s furniture has become so ubiquitous that it’s difficult to make it stand out.
To deal with this problem, several new businesses are offering add-ons that make furniture look like it doesn’t come from the Swedish mega-chain, reports Katarina Gustafsson at Bloomberg News.
Here are a few businesses that are dominating the quest to upgrade Ikea furniture.
Bems sells coverings for Ikea beds, couches, and chairs. The brand is somewhat pricey — a slipcover for an Ikea sofa costs about $US800.
This brand sells unique furniture legs compatible with Ikea. In most cases, four pegs retail for $US75-$100.
Superfront makes new interfaces and tops for Ikea cabinets. So far, it looks like the affordable decor is only available to customers in Europe and Great Britain.

This Melbourne, Australia-based company lets customers design slipcovers for Ikea sofas and chairs. The sofa slipcovers cost around $US200.
Mykea sells stickers for customising Ikea furniture. Stickers to cover a Malm dresser cost about $US40.
