This is us

We are Rabea and Steffi. Two friends who met over 20 years ago at a dance class in Cologne. Rabea was a controller at an international cosmetics company, while Steffi worked as a senior brand manager at Europe's largest telecommunications company. At some point (we can't remember exactly when), the idea of setting up and founding something of our own matured. To decide for ourselves how and why we work. We were ready for a new adventure, all we needed was a brilliant idea.

It all started with a MALM chest of drawers

You can't look for an idea, it comes to you. This was also the case with the idea for Limmaland. Steffi was standing in front of her plain white IKEA MALM chest of drawers. Practical, inexpensive but somehow far too boring - and it didn't really match the rest of the furnishings either. Together, we thought about how we could upgrade the chest of drawers, searched for ideas online and suddenly came across a whole cosmos of people who spice up IKEA furniture.

We were inspired by how much love and creativity there was in the DIYs. There were already some suppliers on the market who offered customisations for IKEA sofas, kitchens or shelves. Everything for adults - but why wasn't there anything for children? The simple children's furniture from the Swedes is the perfect basis for colourful hacks in the children's room.

And so the idea was born: We develop accessories for IKEA hacks in the children's room.

In the Klebefieber

Which IKEA piece of furniture does everyone have at home? Of course, the simple LACK side table. And it was precisely for this table that we created our first product in 2014: the street play table. Instead of playing uncomfortably on the play mat on the floor, we wanted to bring the street to the table. And that's when the custom-fit decal came into play - and with it, numerous ideas for a creative children's room. The decal for the IKEA play kitchen has been one of the most popular products in Limmaland right from the start. Most of you get to know us when looking for a children's kitchen idea.

However, when the first adhesive products were ready, we still lacked a name.

Our good friend Svenja laid the foundation by throwing "limma" into the room, which means "glue" in Swedish. And we turned it into Limmaland. It was just perfect. A short time later, Svenja became one of our first Limmalanders.

The journey through Limmaland

Today, Limmaland has grown from a start-up to a company. It's been an exciting journey, during which we've laughed a lot (sometimes at ourselves) and cut our teeth on some things. In addition to our beloved decal, products made of different types of wood, fabrics, leather and silicone have moved into our shop - a portfolio of currently more than 500 products. A wide variety of IKEA furniture is embellished, optimised and repurposed with clever accessories. We are proud of over 100,000 Limmaland orders, which have already transformed numerous children's rooms. And we are excited to see where the Limmaland adventure will take us in the future.

The people at Limmaland

The team consists of wonderful Limmalanders with whom we have built up a creative workspace in the centre of Cologne-Ehrenfeld. This is where ideas are forged, tinkered with, crafted and shot. And we often come up with the best ideas at the long table during our lunch break!
For production and logistics, we have a great partner in Germany with whom we maintain a friendly relationship.

Everything at Limmaland is done under our own steam - we have no investors and are not part of IKEA. From the idea to your home, we work together to create a wow experience for young and old in the children's room.

Clever. Simple. Lovingly.
