So IKEA is having a sale. I don't know how others choose their furniture, but this is how I choose mine (click picture for larger view):
Yes, I know some measurements are in inches and others are in centimetres. That's because all of IKEA's measurements are provided in cm, and while I'm generally a metric girl, for some reason when I bought my apartment I measured everything in feet and inches. I've NO IDEA what came over me. Thank goodness for unit converters!
