Trollsta at Ikea

The Trollsta tray spindle table at Ikea. I love this piece for a few reasons:
1. I love that Ikea has added an element of whimsy fun and not so modern/straight-edge
2. The price is great - $99.99
3. Its got the cool Moroccan feel to it.
4. It doesn't look cheap (I haven't seen it in person though)

What do you think? Apartment Therapy thinks it may be a little overdone - I personally think it fantastic.


  1. Shut. The. Door. That is from Ikea? I would take a can of laquer spray paint and do it up in a pop of color like orange or bright pink! Love it.

    Thanks doll,

  2. I think I'm lovin' it :] We'll see tomorrow on my (seemingly weekly) trip to Ikea to get shelving for my office

  3. Not so sure. I generally hate spindles and love Ikea for its clean lined modern things. I'm headed there today, so I will report back.

  4. Please do tell me what you think! I know, I love Ikea for its modern elements - since that isn't my favorite look - I'd rather spend ikea prices than DWR prices for that element.

  5. My report-truly terrible in person-flimsy, metal removable tray is ugly and cheap looking, looks like it belongs in a kid's room. I love Ikea, but not this. Seriously over designed.

  6. Oh no!! Ha Ha!!! You are making me want to delete this post! Thanks for the update.


So... Tell me... What do you think?
