Even call girls shop at IKEA.

Today's post is thanks to Clare. She wrote me an email telling me that the Showtime (ITV) series Secret Diary of a Call Girl featured IKEA in the main character's new fourth season apartment. In addition to my thanks, I must also apologize to Clare who submitted this a month ago. Since I look forward to receiving input from the readers I feel guilty about letting this sit for such a long time. When I was finally able to watch the show I had to watch more episodes than I expected which delayed the post. That being said, let us take a look at all the finds.

Belle's very white apartment has a 5x5 EXPEDIT in the living room area. Here is a picture of it before she unpacks.

Episode 1

Episode 1

There is 2X4 EXPEDIT in the dining area. Upon which Hannah has her record player.

Episode 2

A view into the living room area where the 5X5 EXPEDIT is being used as a room divider.

Episode 4

A close-up of the room divider EXPEDIT.

Episode 3

Near her front door is a UNG DRILL frame once again made into a mirror.

Episode 2

In episode 3 we see Belle's office. On the wall near the door is a SPONTAN magnetic board and containers.

Episode 3

There is a LACK shelf on the other wall.

Episode 3

A HELMER drawer unit (it looks like it is raised but we do not see the bottom.)

Episode 3

Back downstairs in the kitchen there is an ORDNING utensil caddy tucked by the stove.

Episode 2

And we get a glimpse into a drawer which has the RATIONELL drawer dividers.

Episode 3

In episode 4 we get a quick glimpse into Belle's guest bedroom. (warning: a little naughty) There is a VINSTRA chest  (discontinued) in the background.




In episode 2 Belle entertains a client in a hotel room which has VINSTRA nightstands.



It is a shame the VINSTRA line is discontinued because you don't see metal bedroom furniture often.

Is it shameful that I got the most enjoyment from this series by trying to figure out how much make-up they spackled on Rose's...I mean Billie Piper's face? Even when she was supposed to be "natural"? I'm intrigued enough by the premise and character that I will add the earlier seasons to my watch list.

Do you have a spotting to share? Email me at ikeaspotter [at] gmail [dot] com. Please include the title and as much information as you can. All feedback is greatly appreciated.
