During our life in England, we heard of Ikea. In Kenya, we lived in the Johnson family home, where we learned first-hand about the beauties of Ikea. Stewart is a very accomplished interior designer, though he does not make his living that way. We were blessed to stay in his and his wife Jo's flat (apartment) in Nairobi for a year. Stewart loves Ikea. We do too.
So over the Thanksgiving break, we had the joy of visiting an Ikea store for the first time. It was fabulous. Unfortunately, our visit was on Black Friday, so the crowds were large. (If you live in Dallas, the store we visited is in nearby Frisco.)
Reason for the visit? My office chair of more than 20 years finally died. I had repaired it about 5 times, and 6 was not gonna happen. So my new Ikea chair is both cheap and comfortable!
