All over Italy, visitors stand gaping at the fluidity of the garments in classic statues. Similarly, it’s hard not to be astonished by the detail in these tables that Knibb has designed. You feel as if you will reach out and touch well-worn, soft fabric, yet instead your fingers meet with cool, solid marble. It’s as if opposites have morphed together into a single tactile contradiction.
Our enthusiasm for DIY projects involving Ikea products led us to explore a bit more the versatility of the Ikea Lack Table. There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
A vanity table or cabinet represent accessory furniture. It each has its functionality but it’s not a main piece. And while this detail could mean that it’s a perfect opportunity for this piece to blend in and to stay neutral, another option is for the vanity and its complementary stool to stand out and to serve as accent details. The stool itself becomes an accessory able to impact the room’s décor and style. The accessories which can be added to the duo are numerous, a mirror with lights being just one of them.
