What IKEA furniture do you own?

I like Ikea because you can get quite the value for your money, but I don't really want to make the whole house look like an Ikea show room. Few items I got in my place:

Docksta table. I like the design as it reminds me of the Eero Saarinen table. Drawback is is that because of it's round leg it tends to be a little bit wobbly when standing on carpet.



Expedit closet. This one has Ikea written all over it, but it's just a very handy closet series.



Norbo wall table for the kitchen, including 2 Bosse stools.

When you are a student in Sweden you don't have much choice. Pretty much everything in this picture (including the bed and the desk in the right bottom corner) is from ikea

I'm curently sitting on a chair from Ikea. Unfortunately it's falling apart because I constantly swing on it and wood connections wore out.

That sounds like communism the way it was meant to be

Almost every piece of furniture that I own (which isn't saying much) is from Ikea.

I can't stand the look of IKEA furniture.

Sadly enough my style is more in tune with Crate&Barrel, Pier1, Pottery Barn and World Market. Sadly because all that stuff is expensive unless you look on Ebay or Craigslist. IKEA has a good business going for them, people will drive all over just to shop at IKEA.

IKEA will soon opened their store in Indonesia. By now our family hasn't own Ikea's product yet. Hope they'll sell their product in affordable price. I'm really waiting for it.

I don't think this is the real deal. What I mean is, there is no official Ikea store yet in Manila. All these so-called Ikea are just resellers. They import it and sell it here, There are plenty of them even in Kamias! Ikea should totally open in Manila. Look, Filipinos get their Ikea's from HK, SG, and even as far away as in Saudi Arabia!
