Sitting on an IKEA chair. A design classic. They do cooked breakfasts for 99p and their cafe is very busy. Their fabrics are lovely I think. You can see why Habitat shops went bust when you go to IKEA - they do the same thing, for half the price, with more choice and less affectation (no celebrity designers etc).
Hej! Schveeidsch meatbals, ja! Not to mention Gravadlax, herrings or gaffelbitter and I swear by Billy bookcases. What's not to like? As long as you've got your satnav or GPS app so that you can find your way out again, no problem!
The shop is a total nightmare. I was very near to a state of collapse the first and last time I ever went there. The less than lovely desk and bookshelf unit thing bought for my daughter was missing one small but vital piece. Unfortunately, it was so small it didn't have a catalogue number so no amount of telephone calls could obtain it. The whole thing went to the scrap heap unused and unmourned.
Nothing like their wardrobes if you kit them out- they do give you loads of storage and the wooden drawers for the wide wardrobes are great - run so easily too. They need toe be put together properly and the large stuff is better not moved - we left metres of wardrobes in our last house and the buyers were delighted with the storage provided. Some of their folding boxes are good too - I have some for keeping the scarves and gloves etc sorted.
I love IKEA! It now means a trip to Bristol, about which I have to think, particularly since Theseus hates IKEA. But even a potter round the market place bit cheers me up. And, as I'm vegetarian, the meatballs are something beyond my ken.
We went on Sunday, silly idea as most of the rest of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire were there too. Although he didn't partake this time, DH loves the meatballs. At one stage we used to bulk buy the packet meatball sauce as DD3 loved it on homemade meatballs
I do shop at Ikea I love their very very long TV units which have two sets of drawers underneath everything you need in your lounge can be stored in them so the place always look's tidy.We bought DSs quilt covers there yrs ago and they are still going strong on DGSs beds now over 15yrs later excellent cotton,and never washed out.
