IKEA are making the power of Sonos speakers cheaper

IKEA and Sonos are working together to create a new brand of powerful yet ‘affordable’ speakers to be revealed soon. IKEA is the Swedish department store known for everything from flat pack furniture to authentic meatballs. They’re hoping, through an alliance with Sonos, that they can also soon make a name for themselves as quality smart speaker makers at a price that won’t offend your bank accounts. With the incredibly catchy name ‘SYMFONISK’, we have been waiting to hear more for a lo...

5 Companies That Make It Easy to Upgrade Your Ikea Sofa

Seven years ago, Izabella wrote about the “thrillingly transformative” Ikea-ready slipcovers from Swedish company Bemz. (You can read her story here.) Since then, more businesses have popped up to help customers upgrade their Ikea sofas, either with new legs or custom coverings. We rounded up our five favorites, starting, of course, with Bemz. Featured photograph courtesy of Bemz. Bemz There are so many reasons to like Bemz—and not just for the quality and uncommon stylishness of their slipcov...

Introducing Overallt: Ikea’s New Collection with Artists from Five African Countries

We’re going to be upfront: Overallt, Ikea’s new limited-edition collection, won’t hit stores until May. But it’s such a great, happy collection that we couldn’t wait to spotlight it. (Besides, it’s March and we figured we could all use a little color therapy right about now.) Overallt is the result of a collaboration between in-house Ikea designers and a group of architects, artists, and fashion designers spanning five African countries (Kenya, Senegal, Egypt, South Africa, and Ivory Coast).

The fluted gradient table does a wonderful job of self-creating its patterns

No matter what angle you look at it from, the Fluted Gradient Table looks slightly different, because it picks up elements of objects behind it and warps them into a pattern. This pattern helps the Fluted Gradient Table blend in, but also stand out. It’s purely transparent, and uses textured glass and a printed gradient film to really make a product pop. Designed by Bangkok-based Thinkk Design, the tables are part of a collection titled ‘Made In Thailand’ that is a result of collaboration with l...

California Classics: A ‘Made for Living’ Furniture Line by an LA Designer

Amber Lewis doesn’t have to work particularly hard to nail the whole California casual-cool vibe. A native of Malibu, the aesthetic is practically coded in her DNA—not to mention, since launching her namesake interior design firm, Amber Interiors, in 2013, she’s been handily helping clients achieve the same easy, beachy style in their own homes. We’ve recently been admiring Amber’s Made by Shoppe furniture line, which encapsulates her affinity for effortless style and natural materials. (The fou...

Vintage foot locker trunk turned coffee table

When I spotted a vintage foot locker at my local flea market recently, I couldn’t pass it up. It was in great shape and begging to be flipped into something new. It looked like the perfect size for a coffee table. After cleaning it up and lightly sanding it, I started on updating the metal pieces. I wanted all the metal on the trunk to be gold so I used metallic spray paint to cover it all, not worrying about overspray for now. In my opinion, it already looks better! For the side panels of ...

Man demonstrates the importance of karate chopping pillow inserts

Never buy a new pillow insert without first delivering a solid, forceful karate chop. If you're in a rush, my favorite chop is at 2:20m, with others at 1:00m, 1:30m, 1:50m ("it's made to be karate chopped"), 2:50m, and 3:20m. [via]

Work Softly and Sit on a Comfy Sofa

Vitra’s Soft Work modular seating system definitely has a soft touch: you can see it in the cushy, comfy, yet sublimely svelte upholstery; in the inclusive way it incorporates a variety of working styles; and in its intuitive incorporation of power infrastructure and rotating tabletops.
