Let me begin by saying that I am a huge IKEA fan. I think they have raised the bar across the world for well-designed furniture at a great value. And I am positive that at some point or another, we’ve all had IKEA pieces in our collections—you may even have some now.
That being said, just because the chain carries great pieces at affordable prices doesn’t mean that’s where the conversation has to stop. It just so happens that I believe most IKEA pieces present the perfect opportunities for hacking. I say this because they possess all the qualities I look for when searching for a piece to tweak—they are easily available, come at a great price point, and provide excellent starting points due to their classic silhouettes and design.
