How Do You Feel About Ikea?

Where I live in the midwest, not many have shopped at Ikea (or know how to pronounce it)...nor do they know what they are missing. To some of my friends here, I am the Ikea Queen...just because when I moved here I brought my stuff with me and had a sofa shipped etc.  I used to live a few minutes from the Burbank location and took my babies there as outings.  Luckily, last September we got an Ikea in Kansas City, which is approximately 3 hours from me, and that made going to KC even more fun (ie. Trader Joe's, Wholefoods, CPK). 

I was just reading on Gizmodo that Ikea will soon be offering a new line of solid wood pieces, available in the US in February. Now that's cool! The thing I like most is that the unfinished wood pieces can be totally transformed into a beautifully waxed or chalk painted piece to go with your decor choices. 

This piece will never replace my beloved Expedit (no longer available), but it's cute.

I adore this orange bench...and I need a few at my new table!

What are your thoughts on Ikea...do you love it or hate it? I love it for the bright colors, the shopping experience (European?), and the meatballs.

  1. Love it! We used to take our grands on outings as well when we lived in Phoenix! I loved it and always came home with a treasure or two. Sadly, we sit between the one in Portland and the one in Seattle and have never been to either due to distance. Maybe I will make it this year! You just can't go wrong with their stuff!
