We love this ingenious hack which is to turn an everyday Ikea Kallax shelf into a bench with *cubby storage. We crafted one of our custom foam bench cushions to fit the top surface of this shelf-turned-bench in our High Performance, stain proof, Toulouse fabric and think it turned out beautifully!
This premium 2.5" thick foam seat cushion will fit the Kallax shelf exactly and the favorite classic stripe in off white-cream with black will go with everything!
The removable cover will zip right off for easy washing however this amazing fabric is so stain resistant that you can scrub out red wine stains or even black Sharpie marker!
Already have this shelf or plan on buying it to use as a bench for your front entry or family room? Just add to your cart, allow us to make it in-house (made to order, allow for 2 weeks manufacturing time) and sit on your hands while you wait for your new foam cushion and cover to arrive in the mail (or choose the "Pick Up" option in the check out process if you're local).
If you want a foam bench cushion in a different size or fabric that's no problem, you can easily get a custom quote here.
