Time to fess up, I have a secret shame and it's IKEA. Yeah I know it's mostly tacky plastiky Nordic crap, but if you look closely amongst all the yuck you find some gems.
Like my new dining chairs > Very modern design and not $350 each, only $35.00 each thankyou very much.
So you get my drift. If you click here you'll see some great pics from a recent IKEA exhibition in Manhattan. An exhibit using IKEA products to improve everyday life in Manhattan. Like placing couches at bus stops, click the link, it's fun.
