Worthy Mentions of 2012

Though they did not make my shortlist but I love these amazing hacks as well. They are among the most interesting, functional and well-crafted in 2012. Hope you like them as much as I do. Here goes:

Condo Perfect baby changing table – collapses to hide behind a door, flips open for a full sized changing table.

Lack shelf into coffee table – Great new use of the ubiquitous shelves. And nothing is wasted.

Besta photobooth – Out of the box, out in the field. And it takes photos.

Expedit reshuffled – Just a little tweak but it made the Expedit so much more gorgeous.

LEGO dining table – Two of my favourite brands together. Love, love.

A serious table for kids – Adjustable table for the would-be Frank Lloyd Wright.

Customised glass splashback – Kitchen magic from Rationell glass shelves and wallpaper.

Remove control storage Lack – A hack every home seriously needs.

Blanda Matt sings – Sexy speakers with all the right curves.

Work in a Box – Opens into a workstation, closes to hide everything.

Mandal LEGO storage – A fabulous storage system and so easy to do.

Space age TV – Because I love The Jetsons.

    The Lego storage is awesome! Keep up the great work, Jules! :D I really hope Ikea would stop bothering you & start to realize how much value you’ve brought in for the brand.

    Wow what an awesome site to stretch my imagination further. Sad to see that Ikea is taking over your hard work. Instead they should take you on. I only just found this site too so ikea you have put a damper on this :( and changed my view of you as a company.
