Things I'm loving at...

... Armani/Casa.

The apartments we have lived in up until now have mostly been furnished with stuff from IKEA and similar stores, and while I do think quite a lot of IKEA pieces will find their way into the new home as well (I am Swedish, after all!), my plan is for go for some more high end pieces as well, so you have some heirloom quality furniture that you actually love, instead of just like, and would be happy to have for years to come. This is why I have been looking at what the high end brands for sale where I live can offer, and one of the first stores I started looking at is Armani/Casa.

I didn't really expect to find that much stuff that I like there, but it turns out, there are quite a few pieces there that could work in my new house, like these, for instance:
I love the sleek look of this vanity table and chair, but since I actually own a lot of beauty products, I am not sure how practical this would actually be for me. Maybe as a second vanity, the house does have several bedrooms, after all!
This desk would probably look amazing in my husband's study, that we are planning to make. It does have a lot of storage too, so a much more practical piece in comparison to the vanity!

This coffee table, as well as the side table (or maybe several of them? Hmm!) might really work in my living room, since I am looking for something sleek, simple and brown tablewise for now. But would definitely need to see these pieces IRL in order to be able to make a decision first!
This lamp is normally not really my style, but it is really growing on me. So this is another piece I would like to see IRL in order to see how it really looks!
This couch is gorgeous, if you ask me, but too small for my needs, I'm afraid. It could work in some corner where you need a smaller couch, though.
This is really cool as well, but the color does not work at all for me. But who knows? Maybe this comes in more than one color?

The big downside is, however, that I have no idea about the prices, as they do not have a price list online or anything, so I guess I will just need to actually go to the store to take a look at their pieces in order to find out if any of these pieces could work financially as well. Oh well, there are worse ways to spend half an hour or an hour than to go to Armani/Casa I suppose, so not too much of an issue!
