Swedish reflections


The entrance to this store will be familiar to anyone who lives in a big city. When I lived in Paris, I spent countless hours at Ikea. In Toronto, not as much, but it's still a good place to find that one piece of furniture or accessory you lack. And I definitely like the reflections afforded by the large windows.

To see more reflections from around the world, take a look at Weekend Reflections.

The exterior of this building looks much different than the one here in the Twin Cities.

We have an Ikea, but I've never been . . .

The bright yellow and clean glass architecture make for a nice composition, Halcyon.

Yes those windows authorize great sky reflections indeed... The title is funny, too.

As a newly married couple Ikeas came to Holl. and we loved it to find it back in the US! European matrasses are the best and cheaper!

JM said...

WOW! You hit the jackpot with all of the reflections in this IKEA building. The sunshine + all of that glass is the perfect combination. Genie

Love the framing of this! Well done! :)

many people like IKEA, there isn't one in New Zealand. They go to Asutralia.

To all who have never been to an Ikea, you are not really missing anything. :)

I think we have one in the Dallas area, but its miles from us. We do have another Swedish import in Terrell. http://www.daimilus.net/us/

I'm a bit of an IKEA junkie! I liked your VW Bug name change posting!
Happy Carnival photographing, H!

Impressive-looking building. I first visited an Ikea in Fort Lauderdale a few years ago. Was not at all impressed. I thought their products were cheap and shoddy and gaudy. And then I read that they do not take good care of their employees. Kinda put me off.

I'd visit another one, though, just for the experience. Maybe it would be different, but I doubt it.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
