The Ultimate IKEA Hack

Unalibreria - Teste di Legno

There are websites upon websites out there showcasing clever hacks you can use to modify and personalise your identikit IKEA furniture, but this has to be a) one of the coolest, and b) one of the most simple ideas I’ve seen. These shelves are intended to be fixed to the wall, but with with a little creative thinking Italian design company Teste di Legno have turned them into a very cool freestanding bookcase.

The best thing about this (even considering the colourful brackets) is that you could disassemble and reassemble it in various configurations depending on the size and shape of the space you need to fill. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Which is indicative of good design, no?
