Places To Go: IKEA

Places To Go: IKEA

OK, so I think IKEA definitely gets a bad rap. I’ve heard the complaints from my friends before of how the material is cheap and easily disposable, or how it’s only a great place to shop when you’re in college. I personally love IKEA. I like to go to the showroom to get a little inspiration. I think they have beautiful designs and I’ll admit I actually STILL have IKEA furniture from college that is holding up just fine and still looks good… and we’re talking over 15 years old here (ew).

If you don’t want to purchase anything in fear putting together your own furniture (but then you are probably not the type of person reading this blog…oh well), IKEA is also a great place to walk around and admire the work of well thought out design and storage solutions.  It’s also a great place to buy inexpensive pieces like, frames, vases, or glasses for party supplies and decorations.

Anyway, here are a few pieces that I wouldn’t mind having and let’s face it; you can’t buy lighting fixtures like these at Lowes or Home Depot. I love the clean industrial style of these pieces.

These lighting fixtures are super chic and super inexpensive (music to my ears)!  They are also nice and light weight.

Love the shape and trough style of this sink.
