IKEA has been hacked. Not in a scary way. In a really, really good way, actually.
We're not saying that IKEA needed to be hacked. Our affinity for their minimal, Swedish pieces will never fade. The simple pieces fill crucial needs in our apartments and homes. BUT, there is room for a tiny bit more creativity from the furniture mecca. That's where the hacker comes in — Norse Interiors.
A New York design studio, Norse is making unique and artistic, custom-made replacement pieces for IKEA storage cabinets. With Norse's touch, these everyday works of furniture are turned into bespoke works of art. The Scandinavian-inspired studio makes use of the clean edges and simplicity of the IKEA cabinets, and adds playful patterns to the face of the pieces. With just seven different semi-sheen colors, the design studio can create 1000+ unique cabinets and TV stands using the IKEA "Besta" as a base.
Oh, and we ALMOST forgot the best part — each of Norse's patterns are named after important women who changed the world and pioneered the way for generations to come. There's the Eleanor, the Rosa, the Frida, and a few more... Head to Norse Interiors to see their wise array of possibilities, and let us know which design you want to add to your home!
