High-End Design on an Ikea Budget


If you’re looking to create high-end design on an Ikea budget, take inspiration from Japanese artist and architect Takayoshi Kitagawa, who renovated his parents’ 38-year-old apartment and studio in Osaka and transformed it into a dynamic, modernist living space. Kitagawa worked primarily with Ikea’s KALLAX shelving units, which come in multiple models and configurations.
