Celebrity Designed Sofas!

Ever wanted to own a celebrity designed sofa? Now you can! Some of Malaysia’s most popular actors, TV hosts, deejays, musicians and performers came together to express their own individual style by designing a custom made sofa with Macy's from scratch. Celebrities include Harith Iskander, Amber Chia, Jojo Struys, Vanidah Imran and Rashidi Ishak, Daphne Iking, Dynas Mokhtar, Ash Nair, Dennis Lau, Joey G, Patricia Sue Lin Knudsen and Hannah Lo. Each celebrity picked out the fabrics, colour combinations and styles to design their own personalized sofas.

Some of our favourites are Dynas and Amber's designs. Dynas designed a sofa that would be ideal for new mothers adding that “your baby deserves the best and so do you! Featuring an extra tall back for neck and back support as well as extra high arms to assist in cradling, this sofa is sure to provide maximum support and comfort for both you and your baby.”

Be A Key Person

Have you ever wondered where Ikea's famous allen keys go to?

This small iconic item is made from highly-recyclable material so do not let it go unnoticed at home or let it disappear into your trash bin.

Best part is for this month, you will get a cute little blue Brattby bag (see above) for every five Ikea Allen Keys you bring back to the Ikea exhange and returns counter from June 5 to July 9, 2011. All allen keys collected will be sent for recycling. So start looking around your home for any of the Allen Keys today!

But don't fret if you missed the deadline because even after 9 July, an allen key recycling box will be made available at the Ikea store to continue this recycling effort.
