here. It was a thrill because I am a huge fan of IKEA. I love modern design but when my husband and I were putting together our first home, there was very little modern design available in the US. You scoured flea markets for mid-century modern pieces or spent a lot of money (which we didn't have) on European furniture. Then IKEA came to the US, with a store practically in our neighborhood (the one in Bel Air, Maryland). We still have lots of IKEA: I drink my morning coffee from an IKEA mug and write everyday at my IKEA desk.
What IKEA pieces do you have in your home?
