#1- The Hemnes bed. We have the dresser and I get that it isn't "in" to have everything matchy matchy but I really like it. The only other option would be a metal/iron bed but Joe isn't loving that idea.
#2- I love the Orgel lights. They would look so nice in the basement if there weren't any of the fantabulous flourescent lights.
Yes, I would want multiples to have them clustered like this. If only the ceiling was higher and there weren't any of the existing lights. This is the stock picture.
#3- The Besta Boas entertainment center. I would want this in the basement too. I love that all the component stuff can be in the drawers, out of sight, because of the glass front.
I really like the storage in this. I have been looking for a divider for the room and was thinking this originally but then realized that it is shorter in length than I wanted. So, that brings me to this.
#5- I found a curtain system (Kvartal) that I think would be perfect. It is essentially a track system that can go along the ceiling with curtain panels that come down. It has really clean lines, nothing fussy, and there are LOTS of options for the panels. I think that I could even pick any fabric and use it if I wanted. The pictures on the site are a little harder to see because it is in pieces instead of as a whole so you will have to rely on my scary picture. It is MUCH cuter in person. I promise.
I think that this could be pretty cute to have going almost all the way across the room and then have it pulled open when we don't need it. I love it. I just don't know if it would work in the space.
#6- The Lack shelf. I really like this. I was thinking that it may be cute in the bedroom in place of nightstands. I feel like I have seen that somewhere but I don't know where. I do really like that it keeps stuff off of the floor. We have a smaller bedroom so that is always a bonus.
The only bummer is that it seems a little long. I would like it if it was just a little shorter.
#7- The Trofast kid storage solutions. I like that there are so many different options for putting it together. I have seen it in action in a few different homes and it always looks different and ALWAYS functional.
It is nice to be able to choose the bin colors too. I love being able to customize things to how I want them. :)
Lastly, here is a picture of one of the sample rooms that I love. So cozy!
So, that is about it for this visit. I am sure that I will die over things the next time we go. That is the joy of IKEA.
