They even Pimp up Billy (the world’s most famous bookshelf). It would be cool know what Kamprad the father of Billy says about this Pimping of IKEA. I think its cool, did wrote about it in my latest book and I do think a lot of brands are missing market shares because of they don’t see the blind spots (where the fans are dancing with their wallets).
To improve their offer they are searching for designers. IKEA started a lot of their success with copying master pieces and now are the IKEA copy extension are looking for their own designers.
They got links as Pimp it up and PIMP FOR FREE (yes in capitals). Is not what I think is IKEA corporate style, but big corporations needs a lot of passion so I think they can hire a lot of good talent from this fans.
