    There's nothing wrong with IKEA. I've got a complete IKEA kitchen here, IKEA bedside tables, IKEA wardrobes, IKEA salon table, IKEA wife... Wait... Was that IKEA? õ_o

    another thumbs up for ikea from me, all our furniture on the ground floor came from there and as has been said if you avoid the cheapy stuff and choose carefully then you will end up with quality furniture at bargain prices.

    I agree about the zombie shoppers. however you'll find that in most shops that actually sell something.

    getting around in IKEA is easy (atleast the shop near me). The trick is to find the shortcuts and where they go to (so you don't end up back at the entrance...)

    Cable routing becomes less of a worry when you have access to a jigsaw :dremel:

    Know exactly what you mean though, it is a bit on the ridiculous side that they never have a slot behind where the tower is supposed to go

    just about every item of furnature in my house comes from ikea..

    just as everyones said before if it looks/feels cheap and is cheap then it'll probaly won't last you too long (but if your a student in digs for a year or need a *insert item of furnature here* to get you by untill youcan afford uber expensive desner one who cares?), but the sensibly priced stuff is good value for money and the office stuff is really hard wearing (almost all my clients who by new office furnature buy it from ikea).

    and you need to go to ikea just for the meat balls!!

    Appart from really bigstuff that's delivery only ikea don't deliver what they have is an independant delivery agent who works out the store this is why thay won't collect /return or redeliver faulty goods (so it's best to check it doesn't look like the boxes have been kicked about before you pick them up). kinda nice when we got a new dinner table... walked up to the counter and they guy said he'd deliver it now... it arrived 10 minutes after we did back at home.

    The website stock level is utter tripe, they said they had a pc bench in stock so I travelled 15 miles walked around and went to get it, and surprise no stock. I check with a worker there and all 3 colours were out of stock and one was -12 on the stores system. I moaned and cursed then went home, checked the website when I got home and its still in stock in 2 colours. Bunch of swedish tossbags.

    I love ikea - though we don't have any ikea furniture, that doesn't mean I don't want any. They have some really cool lights and rugs. Anytime I need a housewarming pressie for someone - it's off to Ikea! :D

    Ikea. They make out like they are cheap and to an extent they are. You can buy cheap items from them but if you want the extras to go with that item, thats when they screw you over bigtime.

    A bed = £75
    A matteress for it = £150+

    WTF!

    My misses works in the customer relations call centre for ikea. She says most of the problems people have with ikea come from not inspecting the boxes before signing for it. The other one is people who live in flats ordering sofas and asuming that they come flat packed. Flat pack sofa... lol.
