I came across this blog this summer and was truly impressed with some of the projects posed on IKEA Hacker. It features projects by people who came up with creative ways to transform IKEA furniture or cabinetry into something more specific to their needs. Some of them are simply re-upholstered chairs, but the most interesting are the case goods. I thought this might spark some ideas for exploring an inexpensive alternative to custom millwork.

This one was the most memorable: kitchen cabinetry turned dining area banquette. Click on image to read about how this was installed.

If anyone is looking for innovative ways of living, especially if you are working with smaller Chicago lots, this site, WebUrbanist, is geared towards urban artists and architects.  This is a fun article about collapsible furniture if you are interested.  I personally like the couch that turns into a bunk bed.
