Pre-cut decorations for IKEA furniture

Property & Construction

Swedish furniture giant IKEA has already spawned at least two feeder businesses, as we’ve noted before: Bemz, which sells slipcovers for IKEA sofas and chairs, and Parts of Sweden, purveyor of various add-ons. Now consumers have yet another ready-made way to make IKEA furniture their own thanks to a new line of decorative surface coverings. Sydney-based Grippiks sells adhesive sheets in a variety of bright colours and patterns for use on the surfaces of many models of IKEA furniture. Grippiks Surface Accents are pre-cut to just the right sizes for some of IKEA’s most popular items–including its Billy, Benno, Expedit and Effektiv storage solutions, Lack tables and Malm drawers. Made from a plastic-based film that grips surfaces using micro suction rather than sticky adhesive, the sheets are easy to position, reposition and remove without bubbles or sticky residue. They work on almost any smooth surface—including timber veneers, melamine, fiberboard, plastic, acrylic and corrugated board (unvarnished timber or plywood and brushed surfaces are the main exceptions), and feature a satin finish that’s both durable and easy to clean. A Grippiks sheet for—for example—a 90cm Lack coffee table is AUD 14.95, and Grippiks ships anywhere in the world. Whether it’s shipping services for eBay users or applications for the Facebook world, there’s no shortage of opportunities to feed—or feed off of—some of the world’s biggest businesses. Help them or their customers, and help yourself! 😉 Spotted by: Martina Meng
