I have to admit, before IKEA came to my town, I couldn't understand what all the hoopla was about. My friends and neighbors were traveling over 600 miles to visit this store in another state.
Now I understand why.
At first glance, you may take a look at their simplified, ready to assemble, modernist style furniture and think to yourself, "That is not my style."
But IKEA is more than just furniture. Take a closer look and you will appreciate the ingenuity behind their designs. Space-saving organization comes to mind when I think of IKEA.
Eco-friendly is something else that should come to your mind as well. IKEA has a goal of running their company on 100% renewable energy, with a wind farm in Sweden and using solar power in the Draper, Utah location, the first of its stores to do so.
IKEA has rolled out their NEW 2013 catalog and is worth taking a look!
The Marketplace is where I love to shop at IKEA. Here are some of my favorite finds!
|Fill several of these with ice water or juices for your next dinner or brunch|
