18 ways to turn an old carpet into something new
Made of STOCKHOLM is a collection of 18 new IKEA products that you can make yourself. All you need is an old carpet, for example the iconic STOCKHOLM. The aim of the collection is to find new uses for things that are in danger of being thrown away. We have even reused the STOCKHOLM name!
Some of them are less realistic and practical than others, but some are actually pretty neat — as far as we’re concerned. Some take a lot of work, while others take next to none. Do you have an old carpet that you’re thinking of throwing out? Before you do, see if you can find some inspiration in these manuals.
It is not always easy to find a smart way of reusing textiles. Instead of throwing them away, recycling is a good alternative. At IKEA you can hand in all kinds of used textiles. You find the containers in our parking lot. Clothes and shoes are ok too. UFF helps us give the textiles new life. Who knows, maybe they end up as a whole new product at IKEA in the end?
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial warranties and your right to return the products will be lost.
