In this special episode of IKEA Home Tour, the Squad assists Melissa Williams, the founder of the lifestyle blog and brand Bubby and Bean, with a furniture makeover in her living room. Melissa and her husband Robbie purchased the furniture in their living room when they first started out but now that they have two children, they are feeling crowded and need an upgrade.
The Squad set out to help Melissa and family find a modern living room furniture setup that can grow with them for years to come. The Squad chose the SÖDERHAMN modular sofa and matching chair for the centerpiece of the room. This sofa features deep seating, big cushions with covers that can be removed easily for washing, and enough seating for entertaining a group of guests. Furthermore, the sections of the sofa can be rearranged to fit the family’s needs.
To accompany the sofa, the Squad selected the checkered LAPPLJUNG RUTA rug, as well as covers, tables, and other living room furnishings in an assortment of bold, eclectic colors to reflect Melissa’s style. With the Squad’s help, Melissa and family now have enough living room space to cuddle up together or host a party of guests, all with flexible solutions they can easily adapt to their future homes. Not only has Melissa’s living room received a much needed makeover, but she and her family now have a space that can grow with them for years to come.
