    Hey artifice! I was at IKEA

    They had a crawfish buffet offer.. I am not kidding you.

    I finally decided coffee table > being able to swing a golf club inside the apt.
    I got this.

    http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30045484

    Almost bought this too but color was a no go.

    Heh, I live walking distance from there (don't stalk me) and I have been there plenty. Geez, I was at the Mall of America about 150 times just within the first year it was opened. It stinks bigtime when that is your "local mall" since it takes and hour to do anything simple. Same with IKEA. Want to run in and grab some new forks? Schedule an hour or more, please (since Target doesn't have want I want).

    WHAT NO IKEA in CO!?
    its ok, I probably need to cut myself off. Although, I will now be about 15 miles from my local IKEA as oppsed to my prevous 6.

    it will be painful, but I'll get by. (PS THEY SHIP!)

    Hm.. likin the coffee table. not so sure about the footstool though. the color, and how comfortable it doesn't look aren't too appealing.

    I need an accent chair and end tables. any suggestions folks?

    There's an IKEA near here. Haven't been. I don't know why I'm posting this. I usually just build my own furniture these days. It's a lot cheaper (unless I put a finger in the table saw).

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    My wife is the addict. We go there a lot just to eat lunch or dinner with her parents. Wow, that sounds weird. But she is 75% Swedish after all.

    That would a major effort on my part to stalk. You better be worth it .

    Yeah the color was the major problem it was comfy and fairly space aged looking (I am kind of a fan).

    762 meters - 833 yards unless you're talking as the crow flies... then its 653 meters.

    Yeah, we go there quite often.

    As for the particle board - they do sell solid wood, you just have to choose the right stuff. Our dining table is solid birch, my computer table is solid pine.

    As for taking an hour - if you are in there enough, you know when to go and where the stuff is, so it doesn't take long. (just not on a weekend... people coming up from New York to shop...)
