Zara Home Store

The spanish retail chain Zara has launched its own home stores - Zara Home. After looking through their online catalog, I was awe struck by all the beautiful rooms and textiles. And if the home store is as affordable as the clothing stores they will be a welcome addition to my shopping list. Unfortunately, the Zara home line is not yet available in the states.
