A pain in the ass, literally. Have you ever sat on an Ikea chair!? I think the people who design that shit get off on the thought of it digging into someone's back. There's just something inherently wrong with using sharp wooden edges on a chair :shock:

it's decent furniture that you put together yourself. DON'T LOSE THE LITTLE WRENCH!

At Customer Service they have boxes have wrenches, screws, dowels whatever you need. Theres only like 2 sizes of each so everything is pretty much universal.
It must be special when the owner is the 2nd/1st richest man in the world depending on the exchange rate of the usd. haha

LOL @ putting EVERYTHING together...
I swear you could buy a block of wood from that place and you would still have to bust out the tools.

Re: Whats so big about Ikea

well it would be split in to 4 little blocks of wood that you would have to piece together with some wierd screw bolt like things, and then they still wouldn't fit quite right...

And it wouldn't be called wood, either. They'd call it "skog" or some shit like that.

Re: Whats so big about Ikea

^^^ ROFL!!! Their stores are pretty cool looking- they are set up as actual little rooms and then there is a huge warehouse area when you actually have to go get everything. As said before, EVERYTHING must be put together. They have some cute looking things, and I bought a few things there when I was living in my little apartment and was trying to be really frugal, but I didn't buy any "REAL" furniture there for my house now- most of the things look too cheaply made and when you put them together, they don't always look right.
As far as rugs and pillows and all that other stuff (anything but the furniture itself) everything is so nice n colorful...a little TOO colorful for my taste at times, so I don't have much stuff from there either.

Re: Whats so big about Ikea

My friend has a chair from Ikea that's really the most comfy chair I've ever sat in. I've personally never been in one though.
