It took me awhile to find the storage room and the parts, and when I went in line, I decided against buying it and left everything for the employees to put back. All of their furniture have really bad quality and is overpriced. They have crappy service, and the employees are not very friendly. I'd suggest going to real furniture store.
Thats all part ok the iKea experiance. It is actually quite fun, and you can get a cheap dinner while your there . I rather enjoy assembling furniture. I got the MIKAEL desk about 3 years ago, and it is still holding up fine, it even survived being shoved in a trailer and moved 500 Miles. It may be made out of particle board but it is fairly sturdy.

BTW Shotglass, I hope your happy I cleaned my desk for you (ok so I threw all the crap on my bed, but you get the idea)



Not bad for $79.99, try finding a desk for that from a fancy furniture store.

That's the Malm (as shecky noted below). The link is to that model in the US Store. It's got this bedtable table attached to the main bedframe.

Yep...I've got the Malm in Full....sturdy enough for me. It's still particle board for the end pieces, but I think it's worn better than some of the other designs friends have had or the old hospital bed style that I upgraded from. I wish they had the Hopen in Birch, I kinda miss the spaces for handcuffs, etc.

Do people on mac rumors care about anything besides shopping? "Post your Wii! Post your Phone! Post your Watch! Post your iPods!"

I'm guilty of this too, it just seems this community is very materialistic, FYI, I only own one piece of Ikea furniture, I get the rest of my stuff from the dumpster, not cuz I'm poor, but because most of it's still in great shape and people just don't need it anymore.

my girl and i are moving into our new place in june and i swear, i am on the Ikea website every day looking at stuff to get; the bed being the single biggest + most important purchase. we are going to take a ride to the stoughton store pretty soon to take a look at some of the stuff but i am always interested to hear about these platform (no boxspring) beds, as i have never had one but we both like the looks of the style. is it comfy?

the other items i will be getting are 2 or 3 flat Jerker (not the kind with the top shelf) or Galant desks, dining room chairs, an easy chair and a couch (not sure if we are going to get those at ikea or not)

Mine is comfy, but I don't have an IKEA mattress. The comfort depends mainly on the mattress IMHO. Back in school, I just had the mattress on the floor...I haven't had a box spring since around 1990...so I can't really compare it to a box spring setup.

My entire bedroom is furnished from IKEA. I have the galant desk w/ extension, malm night table, malm dresser, billy Tall bookshelf, billy bookshelf, a filing cabinet (forgot the name). The lighting is IKEA done also, but I dont remember all the names lol. I put together all of it (took forever!) but it's all well built. You can see a picture of the desk here:

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...75540&page=330 (second to last pic, the brown desk with the iMac)

I'll post other pics if anyone asks.

Just moved my GALANT desk into a different position in my room. It's kinda shifted 90 degrees clockwise now... if you get what I mean


It's pretty clean now cause half my stuff has yet to be moved onto the shelves.

The old position:

I'm not gonna take any pictures right now; I'm sitting in bed and I don't wanna get up.

But in my room: An IKEA bed, desk, shelf, and a shelf.
Living room has a coffee table, a TV shelf, and I think the CD shelf is from IKEA.
Media room has a shelf.
Dining room has a dining table.
Parent's room has two shelves, a bed, and two bedside tables.

We're IKEA people.

You do have a point. However, at least for me, these threads are just nice to look at and also a great opportunity to learn about new stuff. Like when you see that someone has a Wacom, you can ask them how it works, or you can ask some guy about that display he has and then there's this other guy who has this great desk.....it's just good for getting ideas how to set up your own room and stuff.

P.S.: I have a bookshelf from IKEA. That's it. No other major furniture from there. Except for all these small things like curtains, pillows, or those adorable little mugs for holding all my pencils and everything.

Hey I am moving into my own place in August and I really like both of those pieces - how much was the bed and desk?

the bed in King is $299 + the cost of the slatted base (about another $60) and the mattress. the jerker desk is $99 but the Ikea in Stoughton has it crossed off and marked at $79, so i do not know if they are discontinuing it or what, i hope not since i cannot buy it until June. the bookcase in that size is $179.
