Sometimes I’m not sure that the things I see in photos are as good in person.
To that end I took a quick trip to Ikea to see the following:
- Sofa: The Ektorp basic sofa is a neutral beige color for $399 which can be dressed up with pillows.
It also comes in a printed version which I think a friend would like but which is not as versatile as the plain one.
Countertop: The solid birch countertop for the Cottage “kitchen” is on sale for a limited time.
- Sink: The stainless steel Fyndig sink is under $30.
- Faucet: The Ringskar faucet comes in two finishes: bright chrome or stainless steel for $99.
- Kitchen accessories: I found a neat hanging dish rack and some metal shelves that would help with organizing a small space.
Those are the items I went looking for. I also found a few enticing items that might ultimately find a place in our house.
Love these smallish woven rattan chairs. I took a seat and found them to be very comfortable.
I also like very much this large photo of Paris with the Eiffel Tower highlighted. I might consider hanging it over our bed in place of the vintage map of Paris I was planning.
Finally the deal of the day — a folding garden chair for $15. Really, how could you beat it?
Have you ever bought furniture from Ikea?
