“I mean, I never liked being told what to do. It’s one of the reasons I dropped out of school. Give me something to assemble, I won’t look at the directions, I’ll try to figure it out by myself. It’s why I love Ikea furniture.”—Dave Grohl (via saveyourselffromthelies)
No, submissions are off ! (for now :p) sooo I posted a few days back a photo with a 'skurar' vase (beautiful by the way) , and follow a website called designoformDOTcom where if you look in "tags" you find one of "IKEA" with some nice pics of ikea stuff.. spotted! :)
I’ll have to check that out when I’m not busy busy busy. Thanks for the heads up!
Submissions seem to be working on my end. I have it turned on and I just added a link to the sidebar. If it still isn’t working, let me know. Maybe it just takes a bit to activate after turning it on….??
since it's not possible to send direct links to you, if someone 'spots' photos w/ ikea stuff, how could they send it too you (in case you liked it) ? love the blog btw! keep going!
You can do one of two things. You could send me the link in an ask and take out the forward slashes and dots like ikeaspotting [dot] tumblr [dot] com [slash] ask or something like that. Ooooor the easier way is to submit the photo! I think I have submissions turned on. I’ll check right now.
And thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying my IKEA nerdiness!
Hey folks - just wanted to alert you to a new IKEA-focused design resource: PANYL. It’s a system of interior architectural finishes specially designed to be applied to IKEA furniture. Please check it out.
I’ve decided to dedicated this new blog - tentatively named A.C.H. Design Blog - to the images, quotes, and the like that inspire and shape my views on design - architectural, interior, graphic, urban, fashion, and more. Posts found here will be about anything from analyses of the social…
Hey guys and gals! Another non-IKEA related post here, I know, but I wanted to let you all know that I have recently started a design blog. It’s tentatively called A.C.H Design Blog (I wasn’t feeling especially creative that day… clearly). I’m moving all of the design-related content from my personal blog over to A.C.H as well as posting new content. I’d love it if you guys would take a peek at it (and follow, if you’d like)!
Thanks tumbl-dudes and dudettes! Now back to the IKEAness…
Hey friends! I know this post isn’t actually IKEA-related, but I wanted to tell you about a few of my friends who have recently opened Etsy stores where they sell a bunch of great original draftings and illustrations. Their names are Elena and Matt and they used to be my flatmates! (Fun fact: All the photos from the IKEA SPOTTED: Angela’s Home Edition are from our apartment back in Rhode Island.) Seeing as you guys, my followers, are clearly fans of design and Elena and Matt are talented designers themselves (graphic and architectural, respectively) I thought you may like to check out their work!
If you’re interested, click here or on the link in the title to see the post I made about them over on my personal tumblr and for the links to their Etsy stores!
