Would Jane Austen buy her furniture at IKEA?*


A flat is currently for sale at Jane Austen Hall at the Royal Dock in London. The flat is modern and quite nice, but would be a lot nicer with better furnishings! But how cool would it be to say, “Yars, we have a little place at Jane Austen Hall, darling.” Dorothy’s gone out to buy some scratch-off lottery tickets in hope of a London pied-a-terre.

*Nothing wrong with IKEA–there’s a few IKEA pieces at AustenBlog World Headquarters–but wall-to-wall is a bit much! And hang a few pictures, willya?
