Shoe cabinet? Nope. So much more.

13 March 2017

Shoe cabinets have amazingly versatile storage powers. In another idea, we’ve turned TRONES into a headboard, an entertainment centre, a dog station, a bar area and a mushroom planter. Check out how we use it to make a focal point while making space for records, books and more!

In this room, TRONES follows the side and top lines of the wall’s floor cabinet to frame the record player and charming portrait art. Inside, TRONES can hold almost anything—like your favourite records. Outside, the top has a tall curved edge, so you can display things without worrying about stuff falling off (unless that kooky-eyed cat comes to life). 
Did you know? This idea came from our IKEA IDEAS short film, where two lamps become friends and ‘try out’ some looks in their living room. Check out the film!

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 guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
