FROM IKEA TO MYKEA

One of my favorite scenes in Fight Club is where IKEA catalog graphics pop up all over Ed Norton’s apartment while he talks about a home full of IKEA being the ultimate satisfaction of 90’s yuppy desire.

It’s no secret that we, here at the Decor Experiment laboratories, are big IKEA fans.  There is no greater single source for affordable furniture basics, BUT nobody wants their place to look like an IKEA showroom.  Fortunately–the most exciting aspect of IKEA, however, is the adaptability of its product line.  There are tons of ways to modify IKEA products to adapt them for their needs.

Now–there are even companies that specialize in helping you customizing the look of your IKEA furnishings.

The savvy seamstresses at Knesting.com offer tailored slip covers in specialty fabrics for many IKEA chairs, sofas, footstools, and pillows.

The crafty kids at Panyl.com sell vinyl veneers custom cut to IKEA door sizes so that you can customize your casegoods.

Two great ways to escape the IKEA showroom living room dilemma and create smart looks at reasonable price points.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I
    stumbleupon every day. It’s always exciting to read through content from other writers and use
    a little something from their websites.
