I am often asked what I think of Ikea furniture as an interior design blogger. My answer is always: I like Ikea for it democratized Scandinavian design and made it appreciated and affordable all around the world. But as with any other brand I do not like interiors that are solely equipped with furniture from one store or brand. It is the individual mix and match that makes a home unique and adds character. I also like when people get creative and tweak their Ikea furniture to make them different. Currently, there are a few companies out on the market supporting interior fans when they want to individualize their Ikea furniture. One of them is the pretty new Swedish brand ‘Superfront’, founded in March 2013 by Mick Born, Sander Aarts and Monica Born.
‘Superfront’ designs fronts, side panels, handles, tops and legs for some of the most favorite Ikea cabinets like Bestå sideboards and cupboards, Faktum and Metod kitchen cabinets and Pax wardrobes. Interior design fans can combine Ikea’s furniture with etched patterns and details in robust classic materials like brass, copper, marble, birch wood and leather.
One of the founders explains the inspiration for ‘Superfront’: “We noticed a very clear pattern among our friends and acquaintances. Almost all of them had some sort of cabinet base from Ikea that they had pimped with specially made doors from a local carpenter. Many of them even added marble tops. It was a bit like seeing Ikea dressed in Prada”, says Mick Born.
The wide assortment of fronts and accessories enables almost endless combinations. And all this comes with a very reasonable price tag. Thus, your Ikea furniture will not only become individual but will also look way more expensive than it actually is – a good deal for both, your design loving eye and your wallet.

I absolutely agree, Ilaria! That is why I think Ikea is a good idea when you add a bit of tweaks here and there you can make your very own design piece!

Danke für den tollen Einblick. Es gibt ja noch eine IKEA-VEREDELN- FIRMA: Saustark-Design.
SUPERFRONT ist aber viel edler.
