Furniture snobs be damned- for most of us who
cannot afford dare not purchase anything from Philippe Starck or Herman Miller, it’s understandable how Ikea could easily become our candy store:
We get very excited, look around for hours, and basically sense no imminent danger of walking away with a preposterous single- seater in place of the month’s salary inside our wallets… unless you have the most saccharine of sweet teeth, or in this case, a whole freakin’ house to re- decorate.
Like a child who’s gone out to get some lollies, I was at Ikea last Sunday, excited and in want of some reasonably- priced (eye) candies. Going around for a few hours, I realized how much their stuff resembled those of the runways of New York/Paris/London Fashion Week for Spring-Summer 2012’s collections.
Colors. Prints. Flowers.
Have you seen signs of Spring and Summer lately?
