NO. I just have no interest in furniture at all, it just serves a purpose. Iíve been once, with my grandparents (who go all the time), and I was just bored shitless the whole time. Only ended up buying a tv table because I got the rest of my furniture second hand from family (except for my sofas which came from a show house)

The food was good though. It felt like being in a school canteen but the meatballs are amazing.

Welcome to the labyrinth of furniture, where it's kind of hard to escape.

IKEA is bae. Itís so good!

Iíve got quite good recently at going in for a specific item and only coming out with that item. Managing to escape ikea without £150 of shit you donít actually need is a proper life achievement tbh.

The place is great though for getting low cost functional items. I have a really cheap coffee table (£12) I got because my last rental flat didnít have one. Their mattresses are particularly good value and really very comfortable.

I enjoy it whenever I go in, which isn't often as it's fairly far and I'm rarely in that area anyway. I agree it's like a labyrinth laugh.gif I found it quite hilarious the first time. And the meatballs with jam (lingonberry, right?) are to die for wub.gif

Now to start off the very important side-discussion of whether you say it like "eye KEE ya" or "ee kay uh"? I believe the proper Swedish way is the latter but the first one has become kind of common language.

Made a few sojourns to Ikea in the past few months to kit out my house with a new chest of drawers, wardrobe & table. It's so affordable, albeit it can be a pain to put together.

I've never been to IKEA either! The nearest one is just a little too far to be worth driving to. Been wanting to check it out though, just to see what kind of furniture they have. I've heard it's all pretty modern which wouldn't really match the old farmhouse I'm living in now.

"ee kay uh" is the Swedish way to say it but I'm fairly certain no where in the world says it like that laugh.gif There's always been a sharp eye in it for me

We didn't really buy much today other than food which pretty much says a lot about my trips to IKEA in the past, but then I'll go back in a months time and buy a truckload of stuff tongue.gif

Speaking of travelling far to go there though, does anyone here live within ~30 minutes of an IKEA? I don't think I've ever lived any closer than at least an hour away, not accounting for traffic. Except for the 18 months I lived in basically the retirement home of Western Australia (Albany) which was 4+ hours away from IKEA along with pretty much anything else.

We've got one at our nearest motorway junction - less than a 10 minute drive!

lol

Yea and when I say it within an Estonian sentence, I say it the 'proper' way tongue.gif Same with my mother, who I think is the only other person I've heard say it within an Estonian sentence magic.gif All this IKEA talk reminds me of this btw:

At my parents Iím about 80 mins from the nearest one in Edinburgh because itís out the south of the city and getting round Edinburgh is a right trek.

In Manchester thereís one at Ashton over the other side of the city but itís quicker for me to hit up Warrington which is 15-20mins away

We have an IKEA near where we live now but it only went up recently, I've never been to that one. I went along with my family to the IKEA in Bristol a couple of times in the past but tbh I don't really get the fascination.

I have been to IKEA twice I believe! The first time was just a chance for my family to browse and I ended up picking up these white and green pot things! The second time was to find many bits of white furniture when my room was completely overhauled a couple of years ago.

Oh God. I has my first trip there a few months ago on a Saturday afternoon when I was REALLY hungover to buy a wardrobe. It was hell.
