The furniture maker IKEA has a new range of products - gaming furniture. Gamers can buy desks, chairs, sofas and other items that make them more comfortable when they play computer games. IKEA made more than 30 products. One unusual thing is an accessory that is like a big wooden hand that holds your headset. There is also a pillow with pockets for you to put your hands in to keep them warm. IKEA spent many years on designing the furniture. It got expert help by teaming up with the gaming laptop maker Republic of Gamers.

IKEA said furniture for gamers was a "natural step" for the company. It wants to attract millions of gamers to its stores. The company said it created, "relevant, functional, beautiful, and affordable products and complete gaming solutions". It added: "The needs of billions of gamers around the globe are very diverse...46% of gamers are women." It said: "Now we take the first step on our gaming journey, and we do it by presenting affordable, high-performing gaming products and complete solutions that we hope reflect people's personalities and taste."
