The new IKEA Delaktig sofa bed is a collaboration between the Swedish flat-pack furniture manufacturer and Tom Dixon, the famed British furniture and interior designer. According to Dixon and IKEA, the sofa bed "explores notions of adaptability and future-proofing" with a modular design that can change as consumers do.
Part of the appeal of the Delaktig sofa bed is that it can be adjusted with additional pieces. IKEA plans to offer a "network of sub-suppliers that will feed into this platform," according to Dixon. That means that, with the addition of things like cushions, ottomans, and more, the Delaktig can be the piece of furniture that people use throughout their entire lives, from the time they furnish their first apartment all the way to when they've moved into a house of their own.
