Mykea – updated

Materials: Vinyl

Update: 31 Oct 2010. Gert of Mykea sent me an update to what was published (previously submitted by an enthusiastic student) to tell us a bit more about their vinyls especially designed for Ikea furniture. ~ Jules

Furniture by IKEA is good priced and well designed. But we don’t like the fact that we see the same Ikea interior everywhere around us. We came up with the idea to make your Ikea more beautiful, unique and personal. MyKea makes it possible to ad a layer of unique en beautiful designed vinyl over your Expedit, Malm bed and billy bookcase.

How it works is easy: select your IKEA furniture, choose one of the many designs and personalize IKEA in your own style!

Not really a hack, but perhaps nice to show on this site anyway. We started a project a while ago to personalize Ikea products without physically altering them. We are now selling stickers designed by the community. The designers make money when we sell the sticker for them.
