I hate Ikea. I hate how they force you to meander through a long maze of displays. I hate how friendly and convenient it is. It's so easy to buy more than what you originally went there for! I hate that I just can't order it online but I actually have to go there. I hate how clever they are. Very clever right down to the last detail. I hate how popular they are and I absolutely refuse to go there on a weekend. But it's not so bad on a weekday....
I'm not that fond of many Ikea designs. Very good for utilitarian furniture of course. Very good value. The office furniture is all right. However, I'm not into minimalist boxy modern stuff that much. Boring.
It's very clever how they're using old broken computer and audio/visual equipment for their displays. They're not just fake plastic boxes any more. Excellent use of product placement by the people that give them the equipment. Reinforce that brand!
We're moving furniture around the house and getting a few new things so both Jenny and I have offices. And a few more things get purchased of course. The place is worse than Costco!
