I confess....I love IKEA!!!!
I had to start this thread because others had mentioned it before and more are curious.......IKEA is THE MOST FUNNEST place to shop for furniture, candles, cutlery, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom stuff. They have pictures to hang on walls. It's Swedish....but they know what they're doing! And if you live in a tiny place, they have stuff for small places to LARGE places.....it's functional and funky and dare I say it....I will....fashionable......and unique....though ir everyone goes to shop at IKEA it won't be so unique....but hey it's all good.
And for shoppers who get hungry or get people who get bored in IKEA, take em to the restaurant or cafe for some Swedish foods....meatballs are good....but I LOVE the smoked slamon salad. The biggest IKEA is in Sweden and it's designed for you to spend the ENTIRE DAY in there....I have to go there before I die. And if you have kids, they sell toys and bedroom stuff for kids and there's even a play centre for kiddies....complete with ball-pit which I'm pretty sure Russell would enjoy.
Anyhow's I'll include this link for you all. Hopefully IKEA is near you....if not....there's mail order....well they have it in Australia... http://www.ikea.com
Man....I LOVE IKEA!!!!!
