IKEA favorites.

This weekend we went to IKEA and I was blown away by the amount of things I wanted to buy!  We already had a few IKEA pieces in our condo (kitchen table + chairs and two 2x2 EXPEDIT shelves in our bedroom -- with navy KVARNVIK boxes).  
But IKEA really knows how to style a room and we left with a new HEMNES dresser and HEMNES nightstands and a set of 6 SKUBB boxes for my drawers (yep. told you I am obsessed with organization). I helped h put together our nightstands and I was really impressed with the quality of the materials (95% of the pieces were solid wood) -- silly me, thought everything from IKEA was made from inexpensive particle board. Now I want to go back for a TV stand (I like this one but I am not sure it can support the weight of our TV). I also have my eye on the BAROMETER floor lamp and STOCKHOLM rug and chair.
Are you an IKEA fan? 
What are some of your favorite pieces?

  2. I was just looking at the expedit bookshelves this morning to use as a bar/buffet! I love IKEA items, especially that rug! The only thing I ever had a problem with was a bed frame but it got me through college :)

  4. :) Great buys Jillian! Yes, we love IKEA as well and you are very right - they stage their items very well so the buyer wants everything. We have several of their shelves in our house and Marli's changing table is from there. The only downside is assembling it yourself along with the million of pieces they give you.

  6. I swore that when I turned thirty I would be a big girl and stop going to IKEA, but oh my gosh I am so addicted and I love it way too much.

  8. I swear, half of our house is IKEA! We have a few Hemnes pieces (my favorite!) a few EXPEDIT shelves, a lot of kitchen and bathroom accessories, a bed frame, some curtains, a lot of frames... you name it! Our house is basically an IKEA showroom!

  9. Our nightstands are from IKEA and we love them! They are actually a nice wood and have held up for 3 years so far and still look great. I could spend hours wandering around one of those stores!

  17. I absolutely love the dresser and those chairs. I've never been to an IKEA (sigh, blame it on our state). BUT I do occasionally find great IKEA things on Amazon including side lamps :)
