Now this, this is a mailing list I want to be on.
Look at that armchair: it’s only $9.99.
[Update: that was a joke, you guys. Thanks, though, for your diligent readership!]
As excited as I am about this catalog, I’m even more excited about what’s awaiting me in Jefferson City, Missouri. This vintage sputnik chandelier has been floating around our family for decades – my mom saved it from one of our many house renovations, knowing that one of her kids would like it some day. It’s traveled from basement to basement and I’m going home to claim it next week. And to, you know, see my family.
It needs a bit of restoration work. If anyone has a recommendation for a lighting repair shop in Chicago, I would be very grateful.
You will be mine, you will be mine, you will be mine all mine.

The thing on that catalog for $9.99 is a pillow.
The cushion is for $9.99, not the armchair :D
I think browsing the latest IKEA catalogs is one of my favorite things to do! Always end up with a huge wish list! :)
Do you use the “My shopping list” function on IKEA.com? I think it’s really handy – the pictures especially. It saves me from standing in IKEA looking at something like “ANGENAM” on my list and wondering “Is that a blanket? Or a bowl? Maybe it’s a trashcan…” (Answer: it’s a bowl. A very pretty one.)
I haven’t yet, but will definitely check it out! Thanks for the tip :)
The light is really cool!!x
Thanks! I’m anxious to see if we can make it work.
Fingers crossed! x
I didn’t even realize there’s a new IKEA catalog out, usually I’m the first in line to get it! Better put me on their mail list with our new address! I love that chair! Do they sell it in the catalog or is it just featured as an “antique”? That chandelier is really interesting, what a nice piece to get passed down in the family!
I kind of really like IKEA :P
