Prettypegs is my favorite kind of find. So simple, so genius.
How do you make that so-so couch or bed you bought at Ikea - you know, the one that everybody else knows by heart - into something special?
Well you can change out its legs, for one. Swapping those dull stumps for something a little more colorful, a little more curvy, a little more refined, or simply unexpected is all it takes to give a drab piece of furniture personality.
Kudos to Stockholm-based Mikael Söderblom and Jana Cagin who spotted this simple solution and did something about it. They launched Prettypegs last February and have already been noticed around the world.
Last week at Formex I had a chance to see Prettypegs for myself and meet Mikael. What a range. What lovely quality. Even the packaging is beautifully made for display. All around, a smart retail idea.
This splurge is a no-brainer for me- for just the sofa maybe. If only they didn't cost about $30/peg, I'd be buying a lot more.
