I’m in love with my new Ikea Kivik Chaise. In fact I just woke up from a nap on it and am nestled into the pillows typing now. Its super wide, big enough for two to snuggle, or for me to spread work out around my computer, or watch a movie, or eat my breakfast. You know, I think I could live my whole life on it! A friend of mine who is expecting her first child just bought one to be her baby-cuddling chair. If I had a dog, I would give him the end to keep my feet warm. If you like putting your feet up at the end of the day, you just might love this chair too.
