Pimp my Ikea

A sure sign of any company's success is when derivative companies based on the main company's products start showing up. For instance, companies like Griffin Technology have made a business out of making add-on products for the iPod.

Ikea has now picked up one of these ramora-like companies. A company called Parts of Sweden offers add-on items for Ikea's most popular shelf and cabinet systems. Right now they're a European company (you think Ikea is popular here in the US, go to Northern Europe. Yow.) but there's no doubt that they (or someone else) will open up a U.S. operation.
