One thing that struck me while visiting Japan is the similarities between modern Japanese design and Danish design, and by extension, mid-century modern design. Once you pass the similarities, you can appreciate that the design is also unique. I love it and would like to furnish my home with many pieces that I spotted at Idée.
I love their dining tables. And if you live in a small places, the love-it chairs are versatile enough to move from the dining table to the living room.
Founded in 1975, Idée is now a subsidiary of Muji, another home design retail chain which operates a few stores in New York. You will find furniture and home accessories. Look at the original design of the umbrella stand. But the piece I wish I could have brought home is the Anton brown, white ash makeup dresser. It delivers on look and function. I had several makeup desks; so I know what to look for in a makeup dresser. This one fits my criteria. Although the unit is small, the 4 drawers were built to hold what a girl needs to style her hair and face.
