We often take for granted that there's an Ikea so close to our home, but it wasn't long ago that outposts of the store were few and far between in the US. So we feel for Heather Moore of Skinny Laminx who, based in South Africa, has only the catalog with which to sate her love for the Swedish brand. But sometimes out of deprivation comes inspiration, as proven here...

The designer sketched a wish list of items she loved from the catalog, and voila! A new print was born. You can get it in either cushion cover or tea towel form at the Skinny Laminx Etsy shop.
