I love the new Eivor Cirkel Rug by Ikea. It is a White & Blue low pile rug that is part of their new 2012 collection. Its dense, thick pile creates a soft surface for your feet and also dampens sound. Heat-set polypropylene; makes the rug soft to walk on. The best part? Its only $149.00! Such a steal!

Ikea Hackers!

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

I came across a very unique design blog a couple of days ago “Ikea Hackers“. Ikea Hackers is a site that is dedicated to the re purposing of Ikea products. This site is about taking traditional Ikea furniture and personalizing it. It can be as simple as adding an embellishment to an existing piece  or as complicated as using power tools to redesign a piece. The cool thing about this site is that people from all over the world send in pictures and descriptions of their “Hacks”. I have to say Im a huge Ikea fan, so this website is right up my alley. I have included a couple of my favorite “Hacks” below. Check out all the original ideas and projects at www.ikeahackers.net.
