I just put together a unit of theres, the instructions were wrong, the doors are too small, the doors dont' line up, the sides (also the legs) are diffrent sizes and not level, the shelfs are so warped they could carry water, the top has a hole where a knot has droped out and finial one of the screw threads stops half way I up. But the back and base were ok tho, 2 out of 9 pieces isn't bad though, just hope they never try and make cars! :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

I have never bought furniture there, but I'm completely satisfied with the quality of the kitchen stuff I've bought there.

If you've never been to an IKEA, you're not missing much. Generally the stores are jam-packed with idiots who think they're getting a big bargain on coffee tables or bedroom sets, when really all they're getting is an ass-fuck because the products are made like shit and reflect their relatively inexpensive price tag. And the stores themselves are no treat. Like I said, they are jammed with idiot zombie mall-walkers, and they're so complexly arranged that they have to actually put up maps to tell you what direction you should be going. How ergonomical. One big consumer flow from the entrance to the checkout, like food getting digested through the front door and moving through the bowels of the blue/yellow box and pumped out its shithole. :lol:

Or you can take one of the cute little shortcuts to another department and feel all special! :rolleyes:

Here's what I got at IKEA: Three dressers, two endtables and an armoire, total cost around $850. Wow, how cheap right? That's because you have to get tickets for each item, go downstairs to this giant warehouse full of flat cardboard boxes, each weighing about 600 pounds, which you have to personally lift onto a little metal dolly. Then you have to maneuver this small battleship-like cart to the checkout, where the lines rival those at DisneyWorld, all the while trying to keep from destroying stupid displays of bath sets and three for $10.00 cd-holders and other useless shit that appear to be set up specifically to serve as obstacles to test your skills. And the degenerates let their children run around like animals, knocking into you, knocking things over, screaming and cursing. The only good thing is that occasionally one runs into my cart and bounces off like a bird hitting a window, which makes me almost smile. :(

Anyway, after you pay, you have to put the shit in your car by yourself, and then you have to take it home and put it together by yourself, using directions consisting of pictures of morph-like people shapes assembling cartoon versions of the item you just bought. It's not that hard, except for one thing: :confused:

Seven months down the line, the shit is falling apart. :eek: The faces of the drawers on the dressers keep popping off, the bottoms of the drawers can't handle a weight-load consisting of more than 8 0r 9 t-shirts, or maybe several pairs of pants, and if you try to move the dressers and grab under the top, it pops up because it's only secured by gravity, not the little lock-screw things that are supposed to keep it secure. And when I tried fixing these problems, with screwdrivers and wood glue, the cheap fucking wood they used to make the goddamn dressers snaps and breaks like one of those faggy balsa wood gliders that I used to buy for a dollar when I was a kid.

SOOOOO HILLARIOUS!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Awww but the best thing about Ikea is the fact that you can come home with about 378456298745629847562978456 of those little free pens, which always come in handy;)

I am sorry, but if you want good quality furniture, you should buy good quality furniture... If you go to IKEA, and pay $50 for a dresser, you are surely not expecting an item worth $500?

We have a saying in Spanish... cheap is expensive :p

IKEA is a great place. It allows people with a budget of $1,000 to have furniture for their living room, just don't expect it to look or feel like Buckingham palace ;) I've bought a chair and a table for the pc from them. No complains from me, two years on, it's still looking brand new and holding up.

If you are a poor student, IKEA often is the only possible resort :angel: Although I hardly have any IKEA in my room :shrug: No furniture, anyway.

To tell the truth, I am a poor student but my parents bought most of my furniture so my apartment is Ikea-free. :angel:

IKEA just opened a hugh store here in Atlanta and got a whole lot of hype around it so I went to check it out and thought that it was just filled with a bunch of common, tacky and cheap looking merchandise. I doubt that I will ever go back there again, much less buy anything from their store.
