The 7 Best Finds Kitchn Staffers Recently Bought at IKEAGroceries
The first time I ever entered an IKEA, I was on a Girl Scout trip to the Swedish megastore to learn how to design a bedroom and earn a highly coveted merit badge. The only things I remember about the experience are that I chose to outfit my hypothetical space with their now-discontinued Sultan Sundane round bed (RIP) and left with a warm cinnamon bun in hand. In adulthood I have a newfound appreciation for IKEA, and I know that more than a few fellow Kitchn staffers feel the same.

The One and Only Wine Glass You Need, According to SommeliersPeople
We’re of the opinion that wine should be fun and easy — not formal and intimidating — and as much as we appreciate nice stemware, choosing the right wine glass can be as challenging as choosing what goes in it.

Before we tell you the experts’ pick, let’s backtrack and take a look at how the stemware bonanza began.
