Lycksele Murbo

1st Aug 08 (Fri) 6 comments

Well, we went to the Cincinnati IKEA last week when we were out that way for a wedding… that place is a freakin’ maze…

We found some lovely things that might suit us… you know, things like a gorm, norden, lycksele murbo, malm with an observatör, galant, and ramberg. All of those things listed above are things that we might think of buying when we move into our new house… but had I not written them down (with more detail), I’d have no idea what we wanted anymore.

The names of products at IKEA are absolutely ridiculous. Here’s a parody snippet from the Geologic Podcast:

gettin’ wood

15th Jul 08 (Tue) 1 comment

While I don’t want to cheapen anything posted 12 hours ago, this one tries to move on slowly from a sad note of last night’s blog…

While at the Oregon Country Fair this past weekend, we stumbled upon the Musical Furnishings booth. This was the company mentioned back in this blog. They’re based in Olympia, WA, but I had no idea that they’d be in Oregon for the fair.

Anyway, they had some “scratch-n-dent” models that they couldn’t sell online to sight unseen buyers… so we came away with a cool marimba-style table… never mind the dust (we still need to clean it from the dusty weekend it encountered at the Fair). My wife actually paid for it; so one might say that she knows how to give me wood*.

We also got to play on one of the drum-style ones, too… and we hope to get one of those in the near future. :)

Check out their website: http://www.musicalfurnishings.com/

*– alas it’s not a gift for me. It’s hers, and hopefully she’ll let me play with it…
