Introduction: IKEA Hack: the Persian Lounge
With a need to create a chill out area, we asked the talented Danish design duo Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen to give us their finest spin on a cosy area using only IKEA products.
The result is a cosy ‘Persian lounge with Scandinavian bones’ that you’ll find hard to leave again.
Watch the hack come together below and learn to master their act in 8 moves. We’ve made it a quick and easy one, so you have more time to chill afterwards.
What you need:
10 TÅNUM rugs3
1 INGO table
5-7 INGEFÄRA flower pots
Your choice of plants
Tools: a jigsaw, screwdriver, a stapler, sandpaper and some duct tape
Pull the sofas' sides, backs and seats apart.
Measure and cut the rugs so it fits the sides, backs and seats of the couches.
Wrap it up with duct tape and staples.
Assemble the couch again.
Unscrew the legs from the table top. Then draw a large circle(two pencils and some thread will do the trick) and a smaller in the middle with the same size as the large pots.
Cut the circles with a jigsaw and polish it off with some sand paper.
Gather it all in a nice formation and decorate with plants and books.
Finally, throw yourself on the couch and hang around for a while.
Good luck and please give us a nudge if you give the hack a shot.
