Superfront's products include marble, limestone
and lacquered tops, to be combined with nine
differently patterned fronts, eight handle and
leg options in twelve different colours, for IKEA's
Faktum, Bestå and Pax cabinets and wardrobes.
I avoid decorating a room entirely with pieces from a big box store, but I think it's perfectly fine to throw them in here and there, according to the "save and splurge" philosophy.
What I really like though, is when a big box store find is tweaked and renewed with the help of a few new components, creating unique and highly personalized pieces.
That's the business idea of the brand new Swedish company Superfront. The firm offers a wide range of fronts, handles, tops, legs and sides for existing IKEA cabinet bases. I visited their Stockholm showroom this summer and was very impressed by their versatile pieces, and how a basic IKEA product can look so exclusive and stylish while still maintaining a sensible price.
Let's hope we can buy Superfront's pieces here in Canada soon!
Untreated brass and copper, leather and lacquered steel are
some of the materials used in the company's door knobs.
