Ikea just released a cookbook in Sweden titled Hembakat är Bäst, meaning Homemade is Best, in which the recipes are two images: one of the ingredients and one of the finished item.
Here are some words from agency Forsman & Bodenfors:
As part of IKEAs kitchen appliance campaign we made a book about baking. It was the perfect way to ensure a connection between IKEAS kitchen appliances and one of the best things you can do in a kitchen: baking. Biscuits, buns and cakes from great traditional swedish recipes. The fact that we let ourselves be inspired by high fashion and japanese minimalism rather than ordinary baking photos with a chequered table cloth in the background just made the project more fun.
Check out all the photorecipes.
Pieter Bostoen made this original lamp called Bäsil by using 15 BÄSTIS dog/cat food bowls, 7 lamps (also from Ikea), lamps sock and wiring.
To make it, is really easy. I drilled a hole in the center of the bowl, put two together and connect them with the lamp sock (screw system). The whole is finished by a single bowl at the top where all the wiring comes together and makes a fixation on the ceiling.

As you may already know the new Ikea Catalog 2011 is finally out.
I have to admit that at first I was a little bit disappointed since I expected more new products and more inspiring interiors…
But after looking at the new catalog closer I found myself really excited and inspired!
I can’t stop browsing through the new catalog!!!

Three of our readers commented on the New: KULLA Table Lamp post expressing their disappointment on KULLA’s touch dimmer system. It turns out that most of the KULLA buyers have the same problem and keep the lamp just because they LOVE it.
After giving an advice on the comment section (not sure if anybody tried out my suggestion), I found this article where Nick from Portland decided to replace the old burned out dimmer for a new one.

Here is a clip from the episode Less Than Hero of Futurama where professor Farnsworth orders a supercollinder from πkea.
As you can imagine, πkea is a parody of Ikea.
About a month ago Comfort Woks launched custom covers for Ikea’s EKERKOG Sofa, NIKKALA Sofa and KLIPPAN Sofa.
Now I really want an Ikea sofa just to buy some of the lovely covers, I would even buy one for each season!
As promised, we have found a solution to the Kramfors Problem. We are now able to make covers for the leather Kramfors, without destroying the original upholstery. We have also made the covers non-slip by pre-attaching Velcro to the slipcovers.
