Ikea had almost nothing that I needed. Does anyone in Seattle know where to get red chinese paper lanters? They also stopped carrying black furniture and decided instead to carry something called "brown black." It's an ugly mix of brown and black that looks black in the low light and brown in natural light. So I passed on the fabulous dresser/tv armoire combo that would have been PERFECT for my bedroom.
Time to start stalking Craig's List for what I need. Ikea has really let me down.
