October 4, 2016 – Bemz , the company known for custom-designed covers for Ikea sofas and chairs, is very proud to introduce a new and exclusive collaboration with internationally acclaimed design house Romo. For the first time ever, Romo’s contemporary textiles of exquisite quality will be available as covers for Ikea furniture as Bemz launches fourteen of its Linara fabrics. 

Romo’s ethos of creating exquisite quality, exceptional design and contemporary colour come to life in its best-selling Linara line of linen blend fabrics. Classic Linara – a linen-cotton blend with a super soft, peach-skin finish and antique, washed look – will be launched in ten exciting solid colours at Bemz . Cubis, a stylish display of simple interlocking squares printed on Linara will join this collection in four colourways. All the textiles are 63% cotton and 37% linen and machine washable.

A UK-based family run business in its fifth generation, Romo has showrooms around the world offering a diverse range of designer fabrics, wallcoverings, trimmings and accessories. 

“We are thrilled to work with Romo – one of the most exciting design houses in the world. Romo’s in-house team of talented and experienced designers have built a world class reputation for offering excellent designs and products. Each designer plays a key part in the creative process, with expert weavers designing innovative woven qualities and talented artists creating original prints. They are a perfect fit for our growing customer base, who look for sophistication in design,” says Lesley Pennington, founder and CEO of Bemz.

“I believe Romo and Bemz share the same passion for design, quality and sustainability. Bemz believes in using 100% natural materials created in Europe that are machine washable and made to fit to perfection. We are very excited to see our best-selling linen union Linara, in the Bemz range – a quality that combines a beautiful look and finish with durability and practicality…in true Bemz style!” says Joacim Stigson, MD of Romo Sweden.
