Going to Ikea when you live in the city and don’t own a car can sometimes be harrowing. But, despite any challenges, we all press on because a) Swedish meatballs and lingonberries mmmmm, and b) they have truly great, affordable designs. I’m excited because I saw a little preview of upcoming spring products via Jan of Poppytalk on Babble, and this creative Duken bed was included. The Duken actually comes with padded textile covers for the headboard that you can swap out at will. Ikea, you’ve done it again!

You could change the headboard whenever you get bored, or seasonally, or if it’s the guest bed and you want to impress company. It also greatly expands your bedding options, because you can justify buying more sheets to match or complement the different covers. (Or at least I could. I’ll take any excuse!) The Duken doesn’t come out until April, so in the meantime, I’ll just be sitting here trying to mathematically calculate how many different, awesome bed looks I could make by swapping everything out repeatedly.

    I have to say, I enjoy assembling IKEA furniture. I go into a sort of zen-state and find it very relaxing. Plus, it's usually made of somewhat sturdier materials than that Sauder stuff you get at Wal-Mart, so you feel better about your purchase while you're assembling it.
