In wish list

Wish List Wednesday - Ikea

As you know I moved to Montreal at the end of October 2014 to an apartment which was unfurnished. I sat on the Ikea website for a while eyeing up all their furniture. 

I found it really useful to go on their website before visiting the store as I had built up a collage in my head and I knew what I was looking for when I got there. If I found anything else then that was a bonus. 

Ektorp Sofa £325/$499 • 2 Knubbig Lamp £11/$17.99  • 3 Lack Coffee Table £26/$39.99 • 4 Besta Storage £85/$148.75 - for the living room. 

Linnmon/Adils desk £14.90/$25.99 • 6 Alex Draws £90/$149 • 7 Frode Folding Chair £20/$36 - for the office, because every blogger needs their own space.

10 Malaro Table and Chairs £90/$149 - for the balcony in the summer

Armed with this list of items I had my eye on we went shopping. We bought a few things off this list. Unfortunately we did not buy the red sofa that I had my eye on and got these 5 items instead. I got over half of my wish list, but I really want a desk/table to sit at with my laptop/to eat dinner at. 

Even with these 5 items our apartment now feels a lot more like a home as we have somewhere to sit and sleep. I am hoping to get a desk/dining table as sitting on the sofa to eat all the time is not fun. We also didn't buy that much as we will have to sell these items when we move back to the UK in the future.

Do you have an Ikea wish list? or do you own any of these products?
