There's a lot to like about Ikea furniture (the simplicity, the impossibly low prices), but the legs can be problematic. Solve the issue with Pretty Pegs, a new line of custom furniture legs.
Swedish couple Mikael Söderblom and Jana Cagin got the idea for Pretty Pegs during a couch shopping visit to Ikea: They were disappointed in the leg options, which spurred them on to create Stockholm-based Pretty Pegs, an online shop offering a leg collection that works as an alternative to the standard Ikea legs. The legs easily screw into the bases of Ikea pieces and come in a variety of shapes and colors. "Our vision is to create a new way of presenting rooms by adding color and personality to furniture," they say. "And just like your favorite pair of shoes, they complete the look."
