Great New Products at IKEA~

As I mentioned in this post, we are in the process of reworking basically the entire house so that we can accomodate a home office for this work-from-home mama, because this has been my workspace lately.


This photo courtesy of Mr. Three. It was taken candidly by him the other day.  I laughed when I found it on my camera.  The kid has some mad photography skillz for a 4-year-old.

Well, this or the breakfast bar in the kitchen.  And it's getting a bit -  how shall I say it? - annoying.

So yesterday, we made a little pilgimage to IKEA to look at their sectionals.  But because I am easily distracted in any store that sells decor/furniture/stuff for the house, I couldn't help but notice a few of the fun new products that they had out on the floor.  (Although I appreciate contemporary design, I definitely tend more toward the traditional, and I'm glad to see IKEA offering a few more products that are more on the traditional side.)

And I just want to insert here that I have not been approached by IKEA to do this post...this is just some good old-fashioned shoppin' love that I had to share....so here we go.....


This is the Benzy Land Pillow.  I think it's just darling.  It depicts a treasure map complete with a pirate ship and a whale.  It would look fabulous in my boys' bedroom...and they loved it!
I thought this Emmie bedding was darling.  I love the huge pink buffalo check duvet, and the accent pillows were lovely...the large floral one is actually embroidered! Too bad it's not the right colors for the Princess' bedroom, because it's just so pretty, bright and cheerful.


This is the Songe Mirror and the photo really doesn't do it justice.  It is a pretty warm silver color that reminds me of silver leafing and it's very large.  It would make a great leaning mirror.  I'm thinking it might look good in my Master bedroom.  Just sayin'.
 I also loved the Sundero Adirondack-style chair and footstool.  I've been wanting some of these for the yard (they remind me of when we lived Back East - closer to the ocean.) And they are a great deal!


So, now I have a longer list of things I need want for the house.  I guess I better start an IKEA wish-list fund. ;-)

Have a great day~

They have a couch in a floral pattern that I love. I think I'm going to order it:)

I have wanted to get to IKEA for the past couple weeks and every time I plan a trip I end up doing something else instead. Maybe next week!

I love that mirror!

I keep an "Ikea Wants" board on Pinterest ... since the closest is 3 hours away, I need to get all my goodies organized! :)

Great post! I've been looking for some pink fabrics (I prefer to call them "raspberry") for my bedroom and that duvet might just be perfect!

I was there last week and went a bit bonkers :0). Can't wait to get my work space in place. It is on the list, down there but still on the list.

I got those map pillows too, but I use the other side out for now because the color and fabric are lovely for my master bedroom. Love IKEA!

I'm always lusting over new things at Ikea! I wish I could buy whatever I wanted!
