All-white walls and clinical hospital furniture often makes the experience of being in a hospital room all the more uncomfortable, which is why furniture brand IKEA Canada stepped in to bring new life to these spaces.
At Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital, IKEA transformed suites for high-risk pregnant women into spaces that are furnished with comfortable home decor. Some of the items that IKEA provided includes everything from couches and tables to beds and wall art. In order to adhere to the strict hospital regulations on quality and safety, each suite was designed in collaboration with hospital departments.
As a brand that aligns itself with comfortable home life and family, this is a perfect initiative for IKEA to take up. Since Mount Sinai is a regional high-risk hospital, this means that families travel from across the province for a stay. These comfortable suites will make the hospital environment feel like home.
