I bought several peices of furniture from ikea (malm unit, micke desk, shelf unit, hemnes chest) and all of them are emitting an awful chemical smell that wont go away.I tried letting it air out for weeks and spent days painting all open surfaces with a wood sealant.

Nothing will make the smell go away. Awful quality furniture and $450 down the drain. Will never buy anything there again. Had to take all the furniture out of my room and get rid of it.

Not completely sure what the smell is, but it gives me a headache and stomachache.

Maybe the formaldehyde?Definitely not something i want to be breathing in.

Not happy with IKEA

I had the same problem and am furious. After spending the $, and the time assembling, I cannot even be in the same room as this furniture.
