Well, some parts do. We still don’t have any window treatments and that OO-gly fan is still in place, but see those box-spring mattresses sneaking out from under the bedframe–they are officially gone and it only took 9 months, which is funny because the project only took around 30 minutes.
When we bought our bed back in 2008, it came with slats to hold the mattress. And then my parents bought us this great mattress set–the box springs, too. So, we used to stack the set on top of the slats and you could barely see any of the headboard. Our bed was so high! When we moved to this house, we wanted to get our bed set up immediately, and with the looming fan, having our bed as high as we had it in our apartment was a scary thought. So we just kinda plopped the mattress set inside of the bedframe and called it good…for almost an entire year.
Yikes. So one night this week, when we both had some energy–we moved our box springs into the third bedroom across the hall. I love that they are just 2 twin boxsprings, because I know we will definitely use them when Greta and any future children are old enough for a “big kid” bed. For now, they will fit in nicely with all the other junk we aren’t using in that room.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
