IKEA is a great store! It is great for students, adults just starting out, or for people on a budget. Most of the furnishings aren't the top quality- most of the furniture you have to put together yourself. They sell items for all rooms in the house (living, dining, kitchen, kids room, etc). I've bought dressers, rugs, chairs, lamps, etc. The big warehouse is fun to look around. I like the small gadgets because you never know what you'll find. There is a new store in Stoughton, MA! Check out the cafe for a break while you are there.
