Ikea furniture may at one point have had a reputation for cookie-cutter sameness, but a generation of DIYers, crafters, and "Ikea hackers" have changed all that.

That's where Brooklyn artist Kimberly Hennessy and her +Fliffa studio come in.

Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter, the husband and wife duo that brought us General Store in San Francisco, have apparently been very busy. They just opened the doors to a second store in Venice Beach!
You may be familiar with the scene: you've come home with flat pack furniture for your child's room and banished them so they won't hear you swearing while you try to assemble it. There must be a better way! Maybe even a way that will let the kids get involved.
