: : my lovely friend .maiya. has just bought her own condo!! a wonderful one room apartment in a beautiful newly built apartment structure. so, naturally she's spending the majority of her days daydreaming about how to design the apartment. she mentioned habitat the other day and I realized it was years since I last visited their site. and I found out that they were bought out several years ago, by Swedish furniture giant, IKEA, or more specifically by the IKANO group, owned by the Ingvar Kamprad family [founder of IKEA].
