So you like Mondrian? Here are a few IKEA hacks inspired by his art form.
Giovanni’s Mondrian LACK side table
This is Giovanni’s version of the LACK side table, using Mondrian’s famous grid.
Cristina’s Mondrianization of the EXPEDIT
This “Mondrianization” was done to EXPEDIT units but can also be done to the new KALLAX or to almost any piece of furniture. Cristina added doors to the EXPEDIT unit and then grid lines to the doors. The art of Mondrian is perfect for the boxy EXPEDIT. See the tutorial.
Lee does a Mondrian-Mosaic
Lee used mosaics to formed the grid style of art on a LACK coffee table. I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon. More.
Anat’s smart grid of shelving
Anat used LACK shelves and the colored TUTEMO open cabinets (from the kitchen range) to configure a library for his many books and collection of old records. Besides holding loads of stuff, it also has an amazing modern Mondrianesque vibe. Read more.
Brian’s gorgeous grid media station
Brian pulled out all stops for his version of a Piet Mondrian/ Mid-century modern inspired EXPEDIT media stand. The grid lines and colored squares are all hand painted. The EXPEDIT unit is then sandwiched between 2 Aspen boards. See the full tutorial.
Rob & Hannah upgrades the JEFF
Rob and Hannah thought the two plain and simple foldable JEFF chairs they had sitting in the garage for the longest time could do with a splash of colour! They laid out a simple Mondrian style pattern in masking tape and sprayed on the blocks of colour. Click to see how it’s done. (The JEFF chair is discontinued, but you can do a similar upgrade on a FEJAN outdoor chair)
What about you? Are you planning to Mondrian your IKEA?
