    Nope. Again some failed attempts at introducing "interesting" objects
    into the interior design and very uncomfortable looking seats everywhere.
    All in all it just looks cheap and boring.

    The furniture looks like it came from IKEA.

    why? i can recognise at least 3 pieces that came from ikea. including the white locker type thing, the shelf the tv is on, etc.

    i don't think it's ugly. just boring.
    they have a few nice pieces though - the eames LCW chair, the little chrome and glass sidetable next to the shelf with the tv on it, etc. but the artwork all kind of sucks.

    I didn't recognize anything from IKEA, recent IKEA that is, so I'm guessing
    the stuff is more vintage IKEA?
    I don't think there's anything wrong with IKEA, we have several of their
    things like PAX and Bonde and they're great, solid and practical and look
    pretty good, too.
    I just thought the white table thingies under the painting looked like
    camping furniture (is that IKEA, too?) and the carpet looks cheap and
    uncomfortable.

    It looks unfriendly, and that someone is trying too hard to put together what they think are 'interesting items' that just completely miss the mark. The colors are too McDonald's for me (too much ketchup and mustard). The furniture/accessories are look like low quality, highly manufactured garbage. It's boring - more boring than a staged home.

    I hate it so much that I cannot say enough bad things about it!

    maybe they don't sell the same things in europe and north america but i know the white locker and the shelf the tv is on are still in production.
    i don't know where the little white tables are from but i think they're kind of cool actually.
    not a fan of the carpet. but then i'm a parquet or cement kind of girl. maybe a few rugs here and there but i definitely hate carpeting.

    too much carpet. and they should get rid of the hacked ivar in the living room. i'd trip over that orange thing on the floor.

    i do like the little mirror in the bathroom.
