Armchair/Couch Pockets

Monday, January 16th, 2012

We are at the moment living in rented accommodation and we are provided with all the furniture. Our coffee table is not one of those with a lower shelf for magazines, and for space for reading/writing material. So we often had pens, paper, magazines, books…. around the place and our living room looked messy. I decided to do with fabric some pockets to hang from one of the armchairs in the living room for space for all these things. One pocket is large for magazines, and books. Another pocket is for papers, another for pencils and pens, another for things like usb keys and headphones, and another for various things like post its and scarp paper.

It was very easy to do, I bought

100% cotton fabric from IKEA and then I measured the length based on the length of my armchair. I wanted to be able to put heavy things in the pockets such as books and magazines so I made sure that the fabric was long enough to go from the floor up to the arm of the armchair and under the seat cushion. This length ensures that even if there are heavy things in the pockets the weight will be held.

It was very simple and you can customise your pockets according to the things you want to put in them!
