Jonathan and Tiphany Walker are loving married life and expecting their first child together. They would love to entertain in their home, but the only space suitable is their tiny living room with outdated furniture and limited seating options for their guests. The Walkers dream of a comfortable and flexible living room where they can watch TV, host friends, and enjoy time together as a family.
Thanks to the IKEA Home Tour Squad, Jonathan and Tiphany’s small living room has been transformed into an expandable space where they can hang out alone or entertain a large group of friends. For the Walkers’ entertainment system and shelving, the Squad chose the BESTÅ storage system featuring soft-close doors, plenty of drawers, and integrated lighting. To replace the Walkers’ decade-old couch, the Squad selected the FRIHETEN sleeper sofa, which has storage underneath for linens and is super easy to convert into a bed for overnight guests. For even more seating, the Squad thought of the EKENÄS chair with matching footstools that double as seating for another 3 guests — and they can be stored under the BESTÅ storage system when not in use. Jonathan was so happy with the makeover that he broke into his happy dance —and the Home Tour Squad joined in!
