The multi-functional wonder

No spare bedroom? No worries! A comfortable daybed transitions seamlessly from morning to night. No matter which space will become your new part-time bedroom, keep it nice and cosy with fresh flowers, textiles, and other decorative elements.

Find freedom in the details

If you don’t have space for much extra storage, consider under bed options. Clothes, accessories, and bed linens stay hidden away, yet close at hand. To make the space feel even more like a bedroom, create a room divider for privacy with the help of IVAR and your favourite textile. Give the space a more open and airy feel by hanging extra chairs on the wall while they’re off duty.

With smart storage solutions and flexible furniture you can create an inviting space that works for everyone’s needs.
