Last weekend, as I mentioned in this post, we tried to make it to Ikea (which is about an hour and a half away) to pick up some goods for Greg’s office. Sadly, life got in the way, and we didn’t make it. This weekend, we’re making it a point to get there. Do or die! While I was on the Ikea website last night building our shopping list – which by the way, is a really awesome feature since shopping at Ikea can get a tad overwhelming – I stumbled on my new furniture obsession again… The Strandmon chair!
I love how it can go with so many styles and I’ve been thinking it would look good in our living room next to the fire place. Unfortunately, it’s not available until this Winter, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream about it. Seriously, this isn’t your typical Ikea chair. It looks like a chair you’d find at Room & Board, Crate & Barrel, or even Jonathan Adler, don’t you think?
I’ve been calling this the “Dick Van Dyke Chair” because it looks extremely similar to the one in Rob & Laura’s living room. You guys know by now how much I love classic TV shows (especially The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy). So that’s just one more reason to love this chair even more. I’m anxious to see what the price will be on this beauty. Let’s hope that even though it doesn’t look like an Ikea chair, it has an Ikea price tag. I guess we’ll have to wait until Winter to find out. Update: Thanks to Jillian, we now know it’s going to be listed at $279 here in the States. Not bad!
We’ll be back Monday with an Ikea shopping trip recap! Until then, do you have any current furniture obsessions to gush over? Share them with the class in the comments section…
