I have been buying furniture and food from Ikea for over 20 years in different cities in the U.S. as well as abroad. I have nothing but good things to say about it. I have never had a problem with any furniture I have purchased there. It is good quality at a reasonable price.
Starting on your first house and need to furnish it? I would recommend Ikea. It is also good for furniture for schools too.
I do not work for Ikea or get any benefit from this. However, I believe pissed consumer is the most unreliable source of information on any company as there is absolutely no verification of anything.
