If you love to feather your nest, consider flying north to Chicago.
Or better yet, take a van. You might need space to haul your goods home after a day at the new IKEA in Bolingbrook, Ill., or the Chicago area's myriad other home-furnishings options.

"Almost everyone I have ever met from the Midwest who is at all into furnishing their home comes to Chicago at some point to check out the furniture stores," says Jennifer Litwin, a Chicagoan and author of the book "Furniture Hot Spots: The Best Furniture Stores and Websites Coast to Coast" (The Lyons Press, 2005, $14.95).
