Ikea. Anyone who knows me, knows I like Ikea – a lot. I like Ikea for so many reasons but mostly these three things; design, availability and rejuvenation. The design might be “inspired” by a classic or just a fresh idea, either way it’s design that’s available to me. It’s available because its affordable and right down the street, but what good is design if it can’t be used ? For those reasons I think it’s also rejuvenating, that Ikea smell of “European Wood” when you open the box and start sorting your parts. Whether its a Billy bookcase or new bed it’s a fresh start and for me that’s always a smile.
