I like cardboard furniture. Cardboard boxes make the best tables.

lousy beatniks...
i'm not a wannabe OK i read jack kerouac's book! i am hardCORE beatnik, AIIGHT. i listen to jazz and stuff...

ikea is cheap OK, and all their stuff is plain & simple. it sure beats the hell out of going to one of those fancy upscale concept furniture stores that sell footstools for $600 just because an italian farmer with a cool name made it...

but yes, cardboard furniture is the shit. i'm using a "hansol" korean computer box or something as my nightstand next to my bed... i love it because u can fill the inside with books or children or whatever junk , and put stuff ontop... and i'm thinking of carving a little hole in the front of it for easier accessibility... but it is a fire hazard... so no roasting chicken in bed anymore :(

IKEA'S SUMMER SALE IS ON NOW OK. UNTIL JULY 7TH!!
i'm going next week to get a dining table and some barstools for my new place.

PLUSSSSSSSS ikea is the shit because they have cool swedish names for their stuff... i swear i saw 1 thing called 'jibtek'...

99% of IKEA stuff sucks shit and 1% of it is worth buying.

It's amazing how much money they are making on particleboard. I hope the stuff you buy never breaks, you'll never be able to fix it.

I probably have seen everything they have in the catalog and the only thing worth buying is this $249 kitchen island. It was worth the money for the build quality.

It was actually made of solid wood with a stainless steel counter top

I just hate the fact that asians still bicker over the prices and try to buy the cheapest piece of IKEA crap possible. Thank God they are sqawking in their native tongue.

After a while, you'll go vist all of your friends and they have the same furinture/dishes/shelves/pictures/lamps/lights because IT IS ALL FROM THE SAME PLACE!

Fucking lemmings.

I hate IKEA.

It's actually for people that only own a screwdriver.

And a hammer.

Yoko,

Well designed, quality furniture can look like art and last a long time.

Cheap furniture just looks cheap and lasts until the next party.

no MAN ikea has their own special TOOL... "all you'll ever need" is the catchphrase for it or something... they harsh cheap out man, they didn't even give me screws for my cd shelf...

i don't even have a hammer :(



people only buy expensive furniture so they have something to cry about when their guests don't use a coaster.

but how long do you intend to keep this furnitureee forrrr winston, don't you get tired of looking at the same old thing? i buy cheap stuff even if it's crappy quality cuz i know that if I were to buy either I'd give them away or break it after the same amount of time has gone by anyways..

so if it's all the same in the end then might as well go for the cheaper that only lasts as long as it's style does.

Bob,

I bought that kitchen island and it was supposed to be 'partially' assembled. I get it home and 4 screws that anchor the table down were missing from the factory!

I have to steal screws from the rest of the table to secure it down. They did give me a free bag of extra screws when I complained.

Their favourite tool is the 'S' shaped hex wrench. It seems that if it isn't held together with a Posidrive (it isn't a Phillips) head or nails it is a screw with a hex slot in it.

Yoko,

I plan to keep the furniture long enough so if I don't take it to my new place it will add resale value when I sell my present home.

I'm not saying people should go buy expensive stuff, but one
should get the best value for their hard earned money. IMO, IKEA doesn't fit the bill.

I shopped around for weeks before I settled on that IKEA island, and three months before I bought my sofa.

Don't get me started about my watches. :c-tard:

i bought an entertainment stand from ikea about 9 years ago and it's still goin'...! haha... it's definately time to replace it though, what an eyesore...

at least they gave u screws when u complained winston... i asked them why all the screws weren't included and they told me to go to home depot and buy my own damn screws... the MANAGER said that to me too, i almost slapped him... he said something like "we don't carry drywall screws, sorry, you'll have to provide your own..."...

They didn't give you screws?!?? I went to the new Coquitlam location and behind the returns desk as every screw, bracket, nail and part one needed to put their stuff together.

I wondered why the girl helping me gave me a look when I asked her for a long screw back there.
