As I sat in training at work about a week ago, not only did a contract a nice little cold, cough, and infection (another whole story entirely) but I learned about a sweet limited edition product celebrating Billy's 30th birthday. Naturally I had to look this up later to see just what the heck was going on ,and when I finally saw it on the floor I was blown away by the design AND the price (of course, that's IKEA for you)! The Billy just got better. Meet Jader.
Yes, brains, function and beauty all rolled into one; a bookcase with some personality.
And the writing, you might wonder?
Yep, they are doodles with - get this - Shakespearean love sonnets! The creator of the limited series, Annika Bryngelson, says that she created the Jader with "a young, romantic man in mind".
How adorable is that?
And for "the colourful, trend-conscious young girl"?
The Billy Bjasta look a cue from Japanese Manga.
And if you think that wasn't enough, the limited-edition Billy also comes in 2 other graffiti-licious colors - orange and green. I'm drooling over the black because of its versatility, and because it's basically awesome. Wanna know what else? The best part is that the bookcases are only $49! For that price, you can add some bookcase accessories like the "B" book ends and some matching glass enclosures. Happy reading!
