Homeware & Houseware Shopping

Posted by Kero at Thursday, November 18, 2010
 When we buy something for our apartment, we are loyal customers to four stores: Ikea, Home Center, Dragon Mart, and Carrefour.

Most of our furnitures are from IKEA. Bed, side table, sofa, divider, office chair, baby high chair we buy them all there. It is cheaper (because we have to assemble them  at home), functional with brilliant design (Ikea is Sweden 's most popular furniture export), and of good quality.

Our Queen Size Ikea Leksvik. In the headboard there are two adjustable shelves with hidden compartments underneath for convenient storing of newspapers, magazines, etc.

Home Center, is where I buy our place mats, table runner, photo frame and everything else we need to perk up our nook. Their fabulous oriental designs sell far more cheaper than other homeware stores.

Dragon Mart is where I buy our bed linens. Chinese embroidery always appeal to me =)...and those silk sheets never fail to give a luxurious feeling - and a posh appeal of course.

For my baking utensils, I buy them at Carrefour Homeware section.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank my always generous Hubby, for buying my current kitchen best friend - Kenwood Robot Culinaire. Mwaah!
