A living room fit for movie marathons

There’s no shame in being a binge-watcher. See how you can make your living room fit for movie marathons. A comfy sofa bed, tv bench and integrated lighting make it feel like you’re in theaters.

IKEA BRIMNES black tv bench with an open shelf, with integrated lighting inside.

Just like lit aisleways at the theater, you can put your own LED light strips inside drawers so you can see what’s inside (especially when it’s dark during a movie). The lights click on when you open them.

Lighting inside a cabinet brings your items into the spotlight. Glass shelves are transparent, and allow light to shine through other shelves.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Add extra cushions to the sofa so you can feel soft anywhere you sit. A secret storage compartment in a seat module is great for holding blankets...or snack packs.

A sofa bed is great for overnight company — or if you’re too lazy to get up after a movie binge. Reach under the couch, pull out the mattress, break out the sheets and boom. You’re ready for round two.
