IKEA – Killing me softly

IKEA has wonderful new items out for Fall 2014, and it is entirely possible my husband may come home to a new house full of different things.
First up: new sitting digs.
I have been coveting a retro-inspired sofa over at Joybird.
While that still may absolutely happen, for a fraction of the price I can get the sofa above.
I love our leather sofa, Hubs had lovely taste when he bought it (as a bachelor) for the man cave. It however is a bear to move and clean under.
Guess who does that. Yeah me. So .. I am thinking I get back-breaking rule on this one.
(read: if you aint gonna clean it we aint keeping it)

KLIMPEN: Table w/ Drawers $189.98 Table Top storage $39.99

I have to update my office as I move closer to working remote two days a week.
The Klimpen series provides a large space, adequate storage, and clean lines.
It reminds me of Pottery Barn desks I fell in love with long ago but could never afford. Huge difference in pricing on these.
I love white furniture. It is still the most classic and easiest thing to decorate with.

ROBERGET swivel chair $89.99

Not just your average desk chair anymore.
If we had the right colors in the house, I would change out the dining room chairs or bar stools with these.
I know it is a bit industrial, a tad retro, but mostly design-a-rific!

GULLMAJ series Linen-cotton - Napkins $5.99-2pk, Tablecloth $24.99 JUDIT table runner $9.99

If we are friends on Facebook you saw my post about the dining room table:
Choose Your Own Adventure (or in this case) Dining Room Table.
We are at odds in the house, where it should go and what color it should be.
If you are getting anywhere with this post, it’s that I am tired of dark colors and dark rooms.
Even in winter I think white or bright can be elegant and warm.
I secretly covet table linens and fear my husband may find my stash in the backroom     out.
PS – if you are an IKEA family member the series is discounted. The Gullmaj Tablecloth is only $19.99 as an example.

PASSERA teapot $9.99

Passera is still not listed on site, but you can keep a watch out in the cooking or eating section HERE.

GARNERA $19.99

Perhaps this would entice Pixie to make me french begets, or maybe a ton of cupcakes.
I have a feeling Garnera maybe holding eggs.
