Tuesday's musings.

I haz new rugs. My apartment looks sooooooo much better now. lolitasir and I had fun at IKEA eating meatballs.

Have company coming over tonight to clean my bathroom. I'm doing the kitchen. It's all coming together.

I have an art conundrum. I have more art than I have walls. I'm thinking about rotating some of my art.

My apartment is literally an IKEA showroom. I wanted to attempt to start a new meme that calls for listing all the IKEA products one owns, but a lot of my stuff isn't sold there anymore, and I don't know the names. But let's see... from IKEA I own:

Entertainment center, computer table and shelves, 3 wardrobes, coffee table, 5 rugs of varying sizes, 5 lamps/lights, 5 picture frames, countless kitchen products, one shelving unit in the bathroom, and countless bathroom products. Plus pillows, a comforter cover, and more I'm sure.

*shrug* Guess I should have been Swedish.

I also have an art conundrum.. I need more fetish photography for the bedroom. Suggestions?

You should take pictures when you're done cleaning!

Well, I'll tell you what I own.

I have many many Barbara Nitke's pieces. And I adore her. www.barbaranitke.com

I also have a couple from Axel. He's known for his drawings, but his photography is really nice too. www.artbyaxel.com

Mark Chester is someone I adore, and his work is great. www.markichester.com

I love Michele Serchuk's work too. www.photodiva.com

There is plenty more I like and own out there, too.

we have a room here at work that is affectionately called the "ikea room" because every piece of furniture in there came from ikea... 2 couches, end tables, huge entertainment center...even the garbage can!

Where's my Pahlaniuk when I need it

Re: Where's my Pahlaniuk when I need it
Gah, premature posting

"And I wasn't the only slave to my nesting instinct. The people I know who used to sit in the bathroom with pornography, now they sit in the bathroom with their IKEA furniture catalogue."

Hrrm, you travel the country, some/many call you Sir ... do you happen to make soap?

It's your personality....
You know like how when you like a particular band or album you play the hell out of it.

You like IKEA hence you get alot of IKEA. It's really not that surprising. :-)

That first one? I would be in the madhouse if I spent more than fifteen minutes in that setting. They don't match! Or line up! Or fit! Or or or!!!!!!

*twitch* Apparently my need for order is deeper than I realized.

I need to go make some outlines or something to recover just from looking at it...

Let's see, that would be the... HOPENITTE, INGBYLOPP, LACKITTE, ÅTÅRALBO, KAVLUTT, and ALBOPROG, the JÄRHES, BÄRKE, VAMBÄR, KAVOCKO, SUNDFÖR, and HJÄRHOLM, five ÖMMETRAS, the TERKLUB, several VESTNITTs, and an ITTEVAM.

Ikea - talk home furnishings to me!
I just went to the one in Brooklyn in search of a new computer table (out of stock for now) and left with $40 worth of stuff I didn't know I needed! Gotta love'em!

While not sure of the names of many things I've gotten from then over the years I have 2 Bakers' racks (serving as counter and storage space), various and sundry kitchen gizmos including a new frother for making cappuccino ($2 - how could I resist?), nesting tables and bookcases in the living room, my present computer table (and the one that will replace it)the rack for my stereo and the stand my tv sits on, some trash cans in various rooms, a magazine rack in the bathroom and let's not forget the candles and endless bag o'tealights. I LOVE IKEA!!!!!!

Re: Ikea - talk home furnishings to me!
I've been to the Brooklyn, Elizabeth and Paramus stores. Elizabeth is the best.

Re: Ikea - talk home furnishings to me!
Elizabeth is certainly my favorite and the one I'm most familiar with (we went often to that one when I was married... and the ex has LOTS of stuff (wardrobes, chairs, etc) we got there). I've also been to the one in Hicksville, but not Paramus. It was nice to have lunch at the Brooklyn store overlooking the cruise ships and lower Manhattan.

The Brooklyn store is easiest for me to get to. I think I could learn to like it. >;-)

Art suggestion...
How about getting a bunch of prints by your favorite artists/photogs in the same sizes, put the relevant size frames on your wall and then change them out periodically.

We have that system, sorta... but it's mostly clayman's portfolio wall, and we haven't rotated in months... (saving up for a house puts a crimp on photo-printer services.

IKEA!

We have purchased together - several lamps, two dressers, a side board, stainless espresso cups, many dishes...and lots of other misc. stuff that I can't recall. All in Atlanta - it's the only one near us.

I think he has IKEA stuff from before me, but he hasn't pointed it out.

I <3 IKEA.
