Way too much furniture is being wasted, although it's in perfect condition. Today, the challenge is not to design a sofa, table or toaster that will last for 20 years. The real challenge is to make people WANT to keep it. At Prettypegs, we're convinced that by letting you add a bit of personality to your IKEA furniture, you might want to keep it a bit longer. And for each week it's being kept, your're doing something great for the environment!
The Movement stems from the great response we’ve got from thousands of people, our customers and IKEA customers that shares the idea: It’s fun to personalize and extend the lifetime of IKEA furniture.
We believe that the world can flourish if we would all consider giving a little TLC to some of our old belongings. And because we love a good makeover. In our endeavours communicating our products and concept we got an overwhelming response from people across the world - that’s how the Upstyle Movement was born.
Imagine you can have a home that tells a story. Your story. And everything inside it hold the dearest memories since nothing is lost, all is repurposed.
- Through a few tools and forums outlined below, we are consistently doing what we can to make the movement grow. Nuff said - you are more than welcome to join us!

Limited edition collections
Last time we made a collection, a limited range of products promoting the Upstyle Movement, it was called Pretty Mini Clowns. The collection won a Swedish design price, for best kids products 2016. We teamed up with Mini Empire’s creative illustrations, and created a special range of hand painted pegs to help raise awareness for a specific cause, with all profit going to Clowns Without Borders important work.
