lee’s ikea basement studio hacks

lee sent me photos of his basement studio and i thought i went to ikea hacker heaven.


the table is a severed drafting table top with what i think are vika curry legs.


the beauty on the left is an alex drawer unit, originally with casters but lee matched it perfectly to an herman miller aluminum group base he cut down. the one of the right is an ikea bas shadow box finished in black stain with a sheet of eames office stationary as backdrop.


and the skinny hairpin legs look gorgeous on the ikea attityd (can’t find it on ikea website).

lastly, the ikea ps cart with a the larger top shelf to accommodate the monitor and speakers. and please note the speakers! from the front, you’ll probably not notice that they are made from ikea planters! (discontinued, i think)

you must hop over to lee’s site for details of his ikea basement studio hacks, while i wipe the drool off my face.
