    The gnomes were pissed off because once the IKEA furniture moved in, they were no longer the tackiest accessories in the yard.

    I feel sorry for the Gnomes, that was genocide. I`m not shopping at Ikea again even if I am currently living in Sweden and everything is Ikea made...

    Strong hose. People like to say that IKEA furniture is "crappy" but I`ve got plenty of stuff from them, and it`s been good long lasting and sturdy, and looks good! Not everything is orange plastic, it depends on your home design.

    Adcro i sell furniture and i assure you that Ikea`s products are pure crap. Good luck when you will have to reassemble one of their furniture after you had disassembled one.The percentage of wood (under the form of impure sawdust,you can`t even call it wood) is inferior of the percentage of glue. They have cool design? Is just a way to cover the really really poor quality of the materials they use. The sawdust used is the result of maceration of other old furniture,inside you can find metal scraps and plastic. Call it "objects" but not furniture please,they have nothingh to do with a good solid wood handmade piece of furniture.

    the only reason people think ikea furniture sucks is because everyone is too incompetent to put together their furniture properly. they always have the right number of pieces, you people just dont know what youre doing. if you had played with lego when you were a kid you would have already gone through the pain and anguish of trying to build lego sets as a child and are now prepared for ikea. so if you didnt play with lego, you had a failed childhood.

    Bakcagain21: But at least one survived! It is a clear case of gnomicide though.

    Ikea does not make crappy furniture.

    They make rewarding furniture.

    I`m 21, in graduate school, and do therapy with at risk youth. The proudest moment of my life was assembling a table though.

    "the only reason people think ikea furniture sucks is because everyone is too incompetent to put together their furniture properly."

    Not true. I make some of my own furniture. I have the little Ikea stuff I own set up by pros and I observe and inspect their work. In the course of my business, I have visited Ikea`s OEM production lines.

    The metal work`s OK, but the `wooden` furniture is made out of hollow 1/16" MDF with a printed paper surface and their meatballs are made of horses.

    piperfawn - yeah, if you can afford solid wood furniture. I can`t, which is why my flat is IKEA-tastic. There`s nobody else that provides an alternative.

    If you are gonna live in a place for a short time or it`s a rental.
    Nothi g beats ikea.
    For the price their wardrobes are the best. Designs are functional, clean lined.
    I have beautiful hardwood pieces but also have quite a lot of ikea.
    You guys have to check out Ikea hacks.
