    Ooooooh... this Ilva furniture looks good. It's interesting to note that Ilva was taken over by ex-Habitat CE and are apparently being marketed between Ikea and more high end designer brands.

    I love alot of Ikea's stuff... even if it is slightly on the cliche, ubiquitous side but Habitat edges it on quality, so I'm especially interested to see if the design is a match for those Scandinavians and the quality is closer to Habitat. :)

    I think I still prefer Ikea over Ilva (except Ilva has some really neat light fixtures)
    I make a 1000 mile pilgramage to Ikea's Schamburg, IL store a couple of times every year when I see my girlfriends family
    unfortunately they (Ikea) have yet to infiltrate the South East of the US

    If you like Ikea and Ilva you might be interested in West Elm

    This is my all time favorite furniture link
    hopefully someday I'll be able to afford the name brands
