As a lover of home interior decor (absolutely adore Candice Olson), I wanted to make my new Japanese apartment as “homey” as possible. Although I would love to have exact replicas of her designs, I have neither an unlimited budget nor the resources as to go about finding home decor in a foreign country. My solution: Nitori. Because there is no Ikea in the area of Japan that I’m in, Nitori seems to have flourished in the absence of the Swedish company. It offers similar items (although on a smaller scale) with a modern look for reasonable prices. They also offer free delivery; they can even remove your old furniture for a fee.
