Ikea is about to make your dream bedroom a reality because the Swedish furniture store is releasing a modular, fully-customisable king-sized bed.

The flatpack favourites have teamed up with British designer Tom Dixon to create a second covetable product in the hackable DELAKTIG range. Last year, they collaborated on a modular, customisable sofa with an aluminium frame and mix-and-match cushions.

The DELAKTIG modular bed will also feature a recycled aluminium frame, this time using production methods from the aviation industry to make the design extra lightweight yet durable.

You can customise it your way by adding different headboards - there's a black one, or a cool rattan style if you prefer a more minimal, open aesthetic.

The bed can also be switched up

with an attachable side table and lamps - perfect for storing snacks, creams and books. SOLD.

Dixon says: 'I’m fascinated by the bed as a kind of primary unit that everybody needs. It’s essential; we spend more time in contact with our beds than with any other piece of furniture. So why not make it do more?'

The original DELAKTIG sofa is also getting an upgrade. New neutral cushion covers will be available in dusty pink, soft beige, and stone grey. All three promise to have high resistance against abrasion and colour-fading, which means more wine and tea and less panic-scrubbing after a spillage.

The DELAKTIG modular bed and sofa cushions will be available in store, and online, from February.

Ikea's spring offering is their best yet for gadget geeks. Earlier this month they announced a range of budget-friendly smart voice-activated blinds.
