Out Ikea’s window

The newly built and recently opened Ikea store near me is huge.  I wrote recently about attending the opening festivities.  It is two stories with a second floor cafe that is at least four times as large as the one in the old store.  With the Urban Sketchers flickr group’s weekly theme of “out the window”, I decided to have a $2 breakfast there and sketch out the window.

The green flag on the left is that of the State of Washington.  The blue in the lower part of the window is the old store.  The hill visible out the window is near where I live.

  1. Coventry, in the U.K., we have an IKEA with a cafe on the 5th floor – great views across the city and wonderful for winter urban sketching!
