- maker of one-of-a-kind doors for IKEA kitchens – is pleased to announce the launch of its REDO line of doors, tops and legs for Fall 2011.
While Semihandmade focuses on kitchens, the REDO line addresses the rest of the home with custom kits that quickly convert those same IKEA base and wall cabinets into bookcases, credenzas and media cabinets.
Says Semihandmade founder John McDonald, “In the year since we launched Semihandmade, we’ve gone from purely Southern California-based, to shipping entire kitchens everywhere from New York and Philadelphia, to Milwaukee, Seattle and San Francisco. We live in a DIY world where there’s clearly a market for customization. With REDO, we figured we’d take things a few steps further – literally out of the kitchen and into the rest of the home. The fact is, people have been ‘hacking’ IKEA boxes for years. REDO makes it fast, stylish, and easy.”
Choices include Semihandmade staples such as sequenced real-wood veneers and colored laminates-on-
multiply, to a wide selection of reclaimed lumber. “Reclaimed lumber was an obvious inspiration for the REDO name,” says McDonald. “But also the fact that, with kitchens, because the jobs are so specific to each space, there’s usually a fair amount left-over per job. We’re able to recycle a lot of that material for the REDO line. That keeps our price-point down and the savings passed along to the consumer.”
