For years, many consumers have adopted the process of "IKEA hacking," or transforming basic products from the Swedish furniture retailer into highly customized, stylish solutions for the home. To help consumers make DIY modifications to IKEA's adaptable furniture designs, some businesses have made a name for themselves by offering various kinds of tabletops, legs and hardware accessories.

With Scholten & Baijings, IKEA recently acknowledged the popularity of the IKEA hacking phenomenon by reimagining two of its most popular furniture pieces—the Klippan sofa and the Poäng armchair, for the colorful, personality-packed Lyskraft collection.

As IKEA's creative leader Michael Nikolic notes, "the hackers are an inspiration to us, and with Lyskraft we feel it's our time to show we got inspired by them."
