I love Ikea
There's something about decorating and making my space pretty that gives a sense of calm and accomplishment. Decorating and redecorating can become costly if one is not a master of DIY Projects (and I am not). Therefore, I have found a cost-effective, and appeasing alternative - Ikea.
The Ikea vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. We make this possible by offering a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them.
I was first introduced to Ikea in 1997 or so shortly after graduating from college (undergrad). I went to the store with my friend who had also just graduated and decorated her new space with cute items from Ikea. As we drove up to the big blue box with yellow letters, I didn't feel any excitement but when I walked through the doors, the decade long love affair began. I only knew of Ikea from decorating shows, mainly Trading Places. Now, I am very acquainted with Ikea and spent the night under the stars for the grand opening of Ikea in Atlanta. My mom and I were among the first 100 and won lovely Poang Chairs.
Nonetheless, Ikea is a happy place. A place to browse, a place to buy, and a place to dine.
With life and love,
