Make your new NEST cozy and cool!

 Fill your nest with cool new styles… for cheap!

Are you a funky fresh couple who want to register for unique and fun items? Do you feel a big knot in your stomach at the thought of being ‘traditional’ and registering at Pottery Barn and picking out china? No fear! A lot of today’s couples are opting for registering somewhere that is their style. Ever thought of an art gallery or perhaps a pottery shop?

 

If you live in Charlotte….you know what I am about to say.  The new CRAZINESS that is IKEA may be the perfect place for you to register!

For those of you who are new to the IKEA CRAZE…. It is amazing (and totally worthy of it)! You drive by it on the highway and think, “Is that their warehouse?” Oh no… it is their store, complete with a restaurant, and what I have been told… some pretty famous Swedish meatballs.

IKEA offers a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them. This is the idea at the heart of everything IKEA does, from product development and purchases to how we sell our products in IKEA stores globally.

Anybody can make a good-quality product for a high price, or a poor-quality product for a low price. But to make good products at low prices, you need to develop methods that are both cost-effective and innovative. This has been IKEA’s focus since its beginnings in Sweden. Maximizing the use of raw materials and production adaptation to meet people’s needs and preferences has meant that our costs are low. The IKEA way of doing things is to pass these cost savings on to you, our customers.

The IKEA product range focuses on good design and function at a low price. It offers home furnishing solutions for every room in the home. It has something for the romantic at heart, the minimalist and everyone in between. It is co-ordinated so that no matter which style you prefer our designers and product developers work hard to ensure that our products meet your day-to-day needs and eliminates the unnecessary.

Check out their website, http://www.ikea.com/us/en/ to be inspired!

I am going to make the haul to Charlotte this Saturday to see what it is all about. Please be prepared to se pictures from my adventure next week! I will also be prepared to write my thoughts on the Swedish meatballs….

 Anyone have thoughts on IKEA? Please share advice on parking, time, crowd and products!

I FALL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING THET CARRY… WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE I CAN AFFORD ALMOST ANYTHING IN THE STORE ON MY TIGHT BUDGET!
