Our Sales Calendar from yesterday brought in an email question from Megan: "Several people posted on the comment thread of your CHI Sale Calendar post yesterday asking about the coffee table in the top picture, and I'm interested too! The caption seems to indicate it's from Ikea, but I don't see any trace of it on the web site. Any help would be much appreciated."
Megan - that photo was grabbed yesterday from the current IKEA site, but after doing a little digging, we found that it features some items that have been discontinued.
We looked up the original info in our old IKEA catalogs for you, in hopes that perhaps an eBay or Craigs search by that name will help locate a used one.
The coffee table you like is called the LAGFORS. It was designed by Richard Clack and cost $129. The last IKEA catalog that we see it featured in is 2006.
The rug that was also asked about in the comment thread is the FREJA. It was designed by Kazuyo Nomura and cost $59.99. We found it in the 2007 catalog.
Sorry for tempting folks with an older IKEA photo - perhaps an AT reader might have one or the other that they are ready to get rid of or some oher suggestions for tracking one down. If so, let us know in the comments...
