Expedit Style

The post on Ikea in India reminded me of a post I wanted to do on how people make the basic boxy Expedit unit into something super stylish. Our Expedit 5×5 has followed us around a lot:

  • from the Toronto Ikea (squished with us in a too-small rental car)
  • to our first condo in Michigan (in a Soho industrial styled basement)
  • to a home in Minneapolis (in a living room corner with Japanese tansus)
  • to Chicago (in a travel-themed guest room)
  • no, it’s not going to the India pied a terre!

It’s black and birch and I haven’t seen it at Ikea in many years. Here’s my beloved Expedit holding too many momentos in our guest room, but I can’t bear to put them in boxes in the basement. Thus the usefulness of Expedit:
