I'm not normally an IKEA kind of girl, and a recent trip to their Edmonton branch left my head spinning for nearly a week. But one thing I did spot on my travels was this really rather nifty space-saving table and chairs, which is ideal for those who'd prefer to avoid endless TV dinners in a small flat.
The 'fusion' table is also available in a paler oak veneer, making it suitable for most living or dining room themes. It fits neatly into corners, alcoves and other tight spots, and I'm thinking it might just be the perfect stylish solution to our lack of dining room situation. I love the way the chairs, which have triangular shaped seats that are comfy enough for at least two courses, slot so tidily under the surface.
It's £229 at IKEA (and available to order online if you also find those furniture store trips do weird things to your head) complete with its four chairs.
