IKEA TRIP - lighting

last friday i went to ikea's newest british store in southampton which has only been open a few months. i managed to get quite a few snaps which i will posting up this week. we've got textiles, bedding, kitchen, wall art, cushions, kids, and first up today lighting. there was also a student show taking place featuring project briefs set by ikea for the art and design students at southampton university.

Ikea always surprises me. People talk such crap about it and it is soo amazing what you can find there - for peanuts too :) Love the shades!
