<p><span class="xn-location">STOCKHOLM</span>, <span class="xn-chron">June 22</span> /CNW/ -- Bemz (<a href=""></a>), the Swedish company that allows customers to personalize their IKEA sofas and chairs, announced a partnership with Designers Guild, one of the most innovative textile design companies in the world.  Select Designers Guild textiles from the new <span class="xn-location">Barcelona</span> Collection will be available as slipcovers for over 70 sofa and chair models on the Bemz website beginning today.</p>
<p>The <span class="xn-location">Barcelona</span> Collection is Designers Guild's latest collection of painterly, eclectic, Spanish inspired prints in a variety of bold, modern colorways and patterns. All of the textiles are 100 percent cotton and machine washable - factors that are extremely important to Bemz and their requirements in the use of textiles for slipcover production.  And, Bemz offers a flat <span class="xn-money">$20</span> shipping rate for all orders to the <span class="xn-location">United States</span> and <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>.</p>

"Our motivation at Bemz has always been to encourage personal expression. Trica Guild and Designers Guild have mastered the "mix" with new ways to use color, patterns and textures in a free, artistic way."</p>
<p>Designers Guild textiles are the latest addition to the Bemz Designer series - a collection featuring patterns from high-profile designers, which include Scandinavian design pioneers such as Marimekko, Stig Lindberg, Viola Grasten, Gota Tragardh and Bemz's own in-house designer Katarina Wiklund. The styles mold perfectly into a wide range of home decors and stay true to Bemz's goal to offer the best design alternative for IKEA sofas, chairs and cushions.</p>
<p>Designers Guild was founded in 1970 by <span class="xn-person">Tricia Guild</span>, who has been responsible for the iconic, eclectic style, which they have come to represent.
