When I was at Ikea I noticed they slashed the price on the cowhides by $100. It says Last Chance! so I guess they aren’t going to carry them anymore. Well, I’m not sure if its just the Covina, CA store or like ALL the Ikeas of the world.

I really debated picking one up.

Even if you hate cowhide, these ones are pretty nice – really thick and great fur. Way better than the two I got. Shit, now I kind of regret not grabbing one.

Bedroom Rug

Monday, September 21st, 2009

I picked up the TÅRNBY
rug at Ikea on Saturday and it seems to be jute goodness all around. I layered a kilim on top since I guess you can never have enough rugs or something…

Otherwise my trip to the big blue and yellow was uneventful. I ended up just getting the rug and enjoying a vanilla cone.

Ikea Weekend

Friday, September 18th, 2009

Looks like a trip to Ikea is in the works for this weekend. Our closest Ikea is an hour and a half from the old Brick House so I always try to get my game plan on, especially for a trip to the big blue and yellow on a Saturday. Arguing couples, college freshmen and lost kids. Should be fun filled.


MASKROS is the shiz.

I saw this a few weeks ago on a quick trip through Ikea and was amazed by how HUGE this light is. I was worried it might look super crappy cheap but was pleasantly surprised by the fabulous drama it delivered. It needs another look-see but this may just be a contender for the guest bedroom.


This IS NOT the light I really want to talk about, but I can’t remember what the new rattan UFO spiky pendant thing is called and it is nowhere on the website. Anyways – I LOVED that light (whatever its called) and only sort of dug the BÖJA. Both need another looking over.


IKEA PS VÄVA – Thats it.

I want to see if I can check out the SPRAKA pepper mill. I’ve been unsuccessful finding this crazy thing so far, but hope it pops up during my pursuing.


Every time I go to Ikea I stop, I touch and I look longingly at this rug. I keep trying to figure out where I could throw it down…


and the master bedroom just might be a winner. Anyone purchase this big jute baby? Reviews?

So, is there anything else exciting I should be on the look out for? Besides a hot dog, a lingonberry soda and a vanilla cone on the way out…
