Ever woken up shivering in the middle of the night to find your significant other hogging the covers on their side of the bed? Apparently so have the people at Ikea—and now they're launching a brand-new item to cure these kinds of relationship woes.
The “TOG-ether bundle” is a set of two personal duvets instead of one big one. The two-pack will include duvets of different TOG ratings—7.5 or 12—which will measure the level of thermal insulation in each. The bundle is inspired by the traditional Swedish way of sleeping, which generally favors two duvets over one, ensuring that both sleepers have their fair share of covers throughout the night.
"Many of us find that not getting a good night’s sleep is becoming a regular occurrence," says Carol McSeveny, Ikea UK & Ireland's textiles leader.
"This is why we have introduced this traditional Swedish sleep trend of using two single duvets instead of a double, in UK stores for a short period, allowing couples to select a duvet from the bundle that suits them," she continued. U.K. shoppers can buy the bundles in Ikea stores on January 27 and 28 for £40.
The Brits aren't only the only ones with sleep challenges. A 2015 survey by the National Sleep Foundation found that nearly one in four U.S. couples sleep in separate beds or bedrooms. A 2013 study from Ryerson University in Toronto also found the number to be about 30 to 40 percent.
Although sleeping in separate bedrooms could be triggered by a range of things (snoring, different sleeping patterns, even prenups), we have to think at least some of these couples just had one too many fights over the covers. Here's hoping Ikea brings the bundle across the pond—sleep deprivation is never a good thing.
