So much that I will make the four hour round trip to the store on a regular basis. Over the last few years I have come up with my own personal IKEA list of must have products and typically one or more of these items are on my list when I go. I'm a huge believer in quality over quantity and when saying that I love IKEA , it may make a few of you scratch your heads because honestly I think we have all heard the horror stories of their products not lasting the long haul.
Ikea has an enormous amount of basic items that can add so much beauty to your home and they will fit perfectly right along side your quality pieces and you would never even know they cost way less!
I also believe that if you follow this one basic rule when shopping this super store you will always end up happy with your purchase, here it is......
The items with mechanical working parts tend to fall apart over time. This is purely from my own experience so if you have a totally different opinion than Yay for you and we should talk because I would love to know your experience.
I have just found that every time we have purchased a dresser with moving drawers, it just didn't hold up all that well. So now I stick to items that you put together once and none of the parts move ever again. Examples.....table, bookshelves, lamp, etc. You get the idea.
I will always will love are their textiles! Curtains, fabric, bedding etc. Everything I have purchased in this category I have been very pleased with.
So now that I am done with all my disclaimers, here are my all time favorite go to items. I have every single one of them somewhere in my home and I love each and every one. Not only do I own them but I suggest them to my clients for their homes on a daily basis. They are really that good!
