Hi:

I happened to see one that looked very similar to the one in the photo this past weekend on Atlantic Ave. It was in boutique that had very pretty throw pillows from india and
items from Africa. The piece was $1000.00 and had
weathered wood and glass sliding doors. I'm trying to remember the exact store and location and I've e-mailed
the friend I was with to see if she can be of help.

Sorry - I should have read my post before posting - Nice
house, wrong spot for it. If I lived on this street I would not be happy. I read the article and was not convinced that this house, on this block, was a good idea.

OMG - I have exactly the same problem. Our storage area
is high above the bathroom and it can only be reached with a ladder - we bought one at Home Depot - this hugh thing that weighs a ton & just to move it into place to use it makes it a production just to put a suitcase up there.
I know this is not helpful but I wanted share my experience.

A few years ago I heard this story. My friend had too much
of this plant(lol) and offered it up in a local paper saying she
would love to trade it for some other plant. A few days later
two representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency
showed up at her door and warned her not to trade, give away or do anything to promote the spread of this plant and
told her it was illegal to do so. She was totally shocked because she had no idea.


Good Questions: What Is This Plant?

It's funny that dianedvg buys a new rug at Ikea for her daughter's dorm room every year. I'm curious: is it because the old one is worn out, because she's tired of the color, or is this just shopping as sport? This may prove my point about Ikea having cheap stuff or it may speak to the larger issue of rampant consumerism as the American religion.

Basically, the rug was shot by the end of the year. Since she changed rooms each year we bought an inexpensive rug each year. However, she never replaced her bedding, lamps,
bookcases, etc. just the rug. Dorms rooms get alot of foot traffic.

But no, thanks, I still don't want tractor trailers driving day in and day out down streets that were built for local traffic, menacing kids, destroying a quiet atmosphere, and inviting one-time visitors (which will NOT help local restaurants, btw, most people will just have their swedish meatballs and then take a cab back to Manhattan.

You are right, upon further reflection, I am not happy
about IKEA coming to Redhook!

I visit the NJ IKEA once or twice a year... eat swedish meatballs in their lovely dining room & watch the airplanes land and then wander through the "marketplace". After picking up a few impulse items I inevitably leave with a plant or two. For four years when my daughter was in college we would do an annual pilgrimage to Ikea to pick out a rug for her room. I am happy about the new one coming to Redhook but then again I'm not livng next door to it - so I'm probably being selfish.

I think that Crate and Barrel has very nice area rugs for great prices. I've also had success finding inexpensive rugs at Ikea.
