IKEA...what a concept! Have you been to one of these? They opened in Atlanta 3 years ago, just as we were moving over to Birmingham, so I never got the chance to go in there. So, me and my friend, Vicki, stopped by after the conference on Saturday, since we were down there anyway. Wow, is this place big...I mean huge...never seen anything like it, but I can see what all the hype is about. It looks to be a great place to furnish a home on a budget, if you like contemporary, that is. It's not exactly my style, but I had a great time walking around snapping some pics to share with all of you.
I took SO many pics that I did collages for all of them, then went back and posted some of my favorites so you could see them up close. Aren't I nice?? :) Really, this is a fun place to visit and I'd tell you to go if you have one in your area.
It's so overwhelming that you'd have to go back 100 times to see everything...not kidding.
There's everything from furniture, to storage, lighting, rugs, accessories, artwork, kitchen fixtures, bathroom fixtures, window treatments, and everything in between. You can even eat here and I've heard their Swedish meatballs are to die for. I didn't try them this time.
A few highlights...all sorts of storage containers, anything that you can imagine and more. Very reasonably priced.
Vignette of furniture and accessories
We both loved this little metal side table for $19.99...what a deal that is!
This wood table came in several colors for $129. LOVED IT! See all these colors? I can see using this in a lot of spots. It also comes in blue (check out one of the collages for that one.)
Storage units. Wouldn't you love a closet that was this organized?
Bookcases and a striking Audrey Hepburn print. Breakfast at Tiffany's anyone?
More wild and colorful window treatments.
Check out this lime green and white kitchen. Too cute!
