Did you know that 96% of people in this country are living with, or have lived with a piece of Ikea furniture in their home? That might not strictly speaking be true (there's a chance that I just made it up), but Ikea furniture is everywhere and there's a pretty good reason why it they sell it by the truck-load. I'm currently trying to make the switch from the quick-fix furniture I bought when I first moved to London, whose only raison d'être was to give you a place to sit and watch ER, to more permanent pieces to keep forever. But the Ikea stuff is going to be around for a little while yet, in my home at least, so why not update it and make it prettier? These Prettypegs style themselves as shoes for your furniture, and you've gotta love that, right?
