IKEA believe that everyone has the creativity to make their home look beautiful. But sometimes even the best interior designers need help. The challenge was to create the tools to allow people to be inspired by the possibilities.


Just as you use tearsheets in brainstorming sessions, so IKEA encouraged visitors to the site to ‘tear’ images and pages from the online catalogue and upload them into their own personal inspiration guides. Other visitors could comment on the ideas – and the guide itself was mailed, free, to the family who had created it.

There was also the chance to win €500 of IKEA goods by taking part.


10% of all participants visited the store and bought more than the average. There were 220,000 visits to the site and 187,000 unique visitors. 16,650 inspiration guides were created leading to a 10% increase in brand awareness and a 4% increase in ‘products I am proud of’.
