2 Multifunctional furniture
Folding chairs, a bench with drawers, children’s transforming tables, sofas with storage compartments for linen and shelves at the head of the bed — all this is undoubtedly an IKEA feature. But now other major brands also have compact multifunctional furniture. If there is a discrepancy in color, the elements can be painted independently. Also, there is always the option to make the model of interest to order — exactly in the size that you need.

IKEA has been actively promoting furniture and accessories in light colors on the Russian market for a long time.

Now, light furniture does not surprise anyone — it is sold everywhere and in a variety of variations.
