My husband and I purchased our first home six months ago. We found it only fitting to purchase new furniture for it as well.
We bought two malm bes (one for us and one for my son), malm dresser, bjursta table, borje dining chairs, lack side tables, and klippan leather loveseat. Unfortunately, a new Ikea store opened up in our area. I fell in love with the furniture. It was nice at first.
However, now six months later it is all falling apart!!!! My bed falls through the slats almost every night, the wood from the malm bedframes and has big hunks out of it. My malm dresser is falling apart and I can't hardly put clothes in it, by bjursta dining table is warped and I even use a table protector! My dining chairs are even breaking.
Our new house is nice, but we can't put our clothes away and we can't have dinner at our table!! The only thing that is holding up is our Ikea/Whirlpool appliances. Well, and our poang chairs so far. SO just a forewarning, DO NOT SHOP IKEA....that is unless you want to have to buy the same things over again in a few months!!
I only wish that I would have found this website before purchasing the furniture because they won't do anything about it at all!!!!! So much for a guarantee....now I'm out thousands of dollars and need new furniture AGAIN!!!
