We found this crazy, but very captivating design on IKEA Hackers that we just had to share further.IKEA’s Dalfred Stool was given a new fresh look with an addition that could probably puzzle some. After all, a saddle is not the most comfortable seating unit in the world. However, according to some people who experienced the chair, it is as smooth as it gets. In case you are wondering about the complexity of the building process, here is a statement from the project developers: “We replaced the nondescript seat of the Dalfred stool with a beautiful, broad, bouncy Brooks B135 leather bicycle saddle. This required grinding away some plastic at the top of the mounting post to expose metal of the right diameter to fix the saddle to. That’s pretty much it.” We really enjoyed this simple and out-of-the-box idea and are curious to see you reactions.

In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
