My kitchen is Ikea faktum/rationell units with a wooden worktop the name of which i don't remember, but not the appliances or sink, i bought those elsewhere.

I also have a Markor bookcase which is quite sturdy and well-built by Ikea standards, a poang armchair, some toy storage units, and a few other bits and pieces.

None, 'cause they don't have an IKEA store in my area.

Almost none. I used to have a lot but there comes a time you don't want to live in what appears to be a large dorm room so it's all been thrown in the alley for the scavengers except a side table and a media cabinet. I forget their names but they look like a Sven and a Benno to me.

IKEA is a cheap way to buy furniture when you move in. It really isnt fair to complain about the quality when you look at the price tag. Instead of saving up for proper things you can get it all at once, then replace item after item with designer things / antiques when you can afford them.

IKEA is cheap and difficult to use if you are greedy.

My place never introduces IKEA but more expensive furniture.

Why allured by IKEA?
The proper furnitures exist only in Sweden, IKEA is more like worldwide chain.

Foolish to build IKEA or H&M in a developed nation, that is my thought.

I like a lot Ikea furnitures, as they are easy to be found (if there is a store next to you), I mean, you see what you need in the catalogue and just go to take that.

I have in particular pax wardrobes in my bedroom, in my city and in a little apartment in countryside, and billy libraries, which I trasformed joining two libraries at the bed sides whith two shelves, one just at the bed height behind him, and one at the top of the side libraries.

I think Ikea furnitures are particular suitable if you plan to change frequently your home or city, also easy to be sold if you don't need more them.

What I don't find particular actractive are the Ikea kitchen.

By us in Turin (1 million people city in north Italy) there is just one Ikea Store (I think the 3rd largest in Italy), and that's always full of people, from Monday morning to Sunday evening

I wonder if in all Ikeas around the world there's a trend to replace wooden furniture by plywooden shit.

I remember that 10-12 years ago majority of Ikea's furniture was wooden, mostly pine (which is the cheapest and most popular), but not only. Birch-tree or even beech were also able to spot. Now the only wooden series in Poland's Ikeas (Katowice and Wrocław at least) is classic Leksvik, excluding single ones.

As for it, by seemingly harmless accident I've been forced to buy a new segment of wardrobe, because during replacing before room's removal it came loose on the base, turned over and broke on bed's frame. It was plywooden of course. I've bought the same one, because it was one of two and in the other case I would be forced to buy a whole wardrobe. Also my about two years old sofa is in worse condition than my grandma's forty years old one - the plywood at back collapsed in three places...

Actually the sofa's cost was about $100, wardrobe (two segments) - less than $300, but formerly at the same prices were incredibly more decent products.

As for it I resigned from Ikea definitely. There is so much mid-century modern furniture around here, which I'd like to learn how to rebuild. All wooden and decent. Actually I've done something recently and I'm sure that it will survive for next 40-50 years.

We don't have Ikea here But we do have some kind of guatemalan version named Kalea.... I would say they're kinda the same thing. The only difference is that Kalea's furniture is not really cheap...

I used to have a mix of IKEA furniture (that i hated but felt it would be wasteful to just throw it out) and quality Indian timber furniture. Thank god the ground floor of my home flooded once and all the IKEA furniture cracked and got ruined by water so i went right ahead and threw it all out !
