Pimped Haparanda stools

Ikea stools “Haparanda”, Ikea fabrics and industrial wheels

Description: The Ikea stools almost went in the trash after 15 years of basement storage, but with some new fabric (from IKEA’s collaboration with design students at Beckmans school) and a few large industrial wheels – they immediately feel like 2012 ;-)

    I´m really satisfied with this recycled stools. For many years I was supposed to throw this in the garbage, but after a few hours of tricky sewing with this local designer fabric ;-)

    4 sale? Yes, everything has a number ;-)
