Behind the Curtain
Just came back from Ikea tonight. I forgot how ridiculously massive this place is. What other furniture store has has a small grocery store, cafe and sit down restaurant? This place has it all, couches, drapes, pictures, lighting, storage, flooring, and so on and so on. If you have never been then you need to take an entire day to comb over this place. I got lost when trying to leave, it was most upsetting. But to tell you the truth the quality of the furniture is... well... made of press board. The furniture is made with nicer cabinet door but the rest of it is pressed sawdust with a sticker to look like wood. Then you have to build it yourself, I think you can have them put it together, but who wants to pay for that. I do like some of the styles and they have wonderful storage solutions. However, I did leave with a box of cookies and a full tummy of Swedish meatballs and ribs.
My blog is all about the design process, design in general (mainly set design),designers I love and architecture. Take a look behind the curtain!
