Make a flexible mattress sofa

Are you just as comfy spread out on the floor as you are lounging on a sofa? Check out this quick tip. This sofa’s made from mattresses. Its flexible backrest can be easily unhooked and taken down when you’d rather head for the floor.

To make the backrest, cover the two mattresses, add buttons and sew them together while attaching hoops. Then secure your hooks and hang it up (here are instructions). The idea is from our Square Metre Challenge living/dining room (check it out here).

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
