IKEA Micke desk + so much more.
I wandered over to IKEA this afternoon after a delicious Lebanese lunch with my best friend. Bonus - it was served by a swarthy man of loin-dampening Middle Eastern lusciousness.
I was on a mission to pick up a Malm 3-drawer chest for LB's closet. (His lingerie storage needs are out of control.) I checked out the mirrored version and its top was scratched to hell - theory confirmed. The white oak finish matches our bed and has the added value of actually being wood rather than a giant wood-like sticker. I was sorely tempted to buy the Nyvoll 3-drawer chest (below) in the gray finish because in person it's sexy as all get-out. But it's two and a half times as much as the Malm, and I'm still plugging away at our kitchen remodel.
Nyvoll 3-drawer chest, $199.
What really caught my eye was the Micke desk (see first photo) for 69 damn dollars. Sixty-freakin'-nine!! That handsome son of a gun is more flexible than David Bowie's sexuality. I see it as a sessy buffet in the mirrored nook of a dining room (hey, I've got one of those!) or werking it hard behind a badass Patricia Urquiola Moroso sofa.
Note to IKEA, please knock this one off ASAP:
Morosa Volant sofa, $TDM.
So, Dumplings, what retail intrigue have you been up to lately?
