At one point, I thought the Trofast Studio was the sure winner, but the Expedit Bar ran ahead in the last few days of voting garnering 28% of votes. The Trofast Studio comes close at 23%.

As for the Upside Down Lamp, it was a clear favourite from the start with 25% of votes. The Magnetic Curtain tie-back trails behind with 18% of votes.

Thank you very much for all your votes. It was another fun year picking the best of the best. I look forward to seeing many more fabulous ones in 2014. Keep them coming!

Congratulations to Dan for sharing with us your excellent Expedit Bar hack. And Kun for your smart idea of using the lamps upside down. Well done!

    I need help finding panels for the Framasta media unit. I have the chocolate brown and wanted white or the frosted glass however they don’t make them anymore?

    I’ve heard that IKEA is opposed to “hackers.” Why? It seems that that would increase sales.
