A little bit mid-century modern and a lot a bit cute, this new series of walnut furniture titled Stockholm, is some of the richest looking I have ever seen at Ikea. Sturdy, surprisingly weighty and proportioned just right, I could have bought the entire collection had I the need. Not that that has stopped me before, but when it comes to furniture, it’s a bit hard to justify an extra low round coffee table (not shown and my favorite piece of the bunch) when you live in a small one bedroom apartment. Alas, I didn’t go home empty handed and bought a collection of brightly colored chunky drinking straws for $1.99 that will be a welcome addition to my morning smoothie. Sometimes, it’s the little things in life . . .
