The first item on our list is the Bjursta dining table I mentioned in this post:
We don't really need a dining table right now but with holidays right around the corner, I figured now is as good of a time as any to buy it! Plus, buying it now means we'll have plenty of time to put it together, find some chairs for it (that don't cost $1,000...) and get it set up in time for the first year of holiday dinners at our new house!
The second item on our list is the Dalfred barstool:
If they're in stock on the day of our trip (they tend to sell out fast at our IKEA), I'm planning on buying 4 of them for our breakfast bar/island in the kitchen. A while back, I mentioned how our breakfast bar is 42" high which means we need barstools that are at least 30", preferably 32", and those can be expensive.
The Dalfred stool is adjustable and according to IKEA's site, it's suitable for bar heights between 35 3/8" and 43 1/4" AKA our bar. I like the industrial look and I read something in HGTV magazine's latest issue about how round barstools offer a better flow to a room than square ones do so I feel like I'm on trend with this choice haha (Lame, I know!)
The third item on our list is the Hektar floor lamp:
I never really thought I was a floor lamp person until I spotted Hektar. Something about his cool industrial vibe got me hooked and I think he'll look nice hanging out in the corner of our living room by the as-is IKEA club chair we got back during our last trip in April:
While we're there, I'd also like to check out the oh-so-popular Alvine Ruta rug:
I'm thinking about pairing it with Chester in our loft but I don't know if it's going to be big enough so we'll see!
I also want to check out the larger planters they have (since our front porch is nekkid and needs some love), their throw pillows (I'm eyeing this one in particular), the as-is section, and all of the other fun little things they have to offer!
Have you been to IKEA lately? What caught your eye? Did you go home with anything good?
