Its been almost 25 years since my first (and last) visit to an IKEA store. I didn’t put a piece of IKEA furniture together until February 2017. 🙂
I’ve been on the hunt for new light shades for our hall, stairwell and landing and kept seeing this one popping up on the home décor accounts I follow on Instagram. After quite a wait, I was able to track down the shades in stock in the IKEA
store leviathan at Wembley, North London.
Home delivery wasn’t an option, so Click and Collect it was … but only between 4-8 pm. 😦
With England’s restrictions having been lifted, I was half expecting crowds of maskless click and collecters. The reality couldn’t have been further from the truth – there was no-one waiting but me, in a mask, and a lurking IKEA employee, half wearing a mask. 🙂
Ten minutes later I was back in the car, along with 5 of those shades*. I suspect it could be another 25 years before I visit IKEA in person again.
Are you a fan of IKEA?
*I’ll show you the shades in situ once the next round of decorating has been complete.
