All IKEA...the desk is bit of a recycling job. The lower part is a computer table they used to sell, then the part with the monitor/speakers on it is part of my old IKEA TV stand (which wouldn't hold my current TV) with a set of legs. You could probably make a similar combination today with a rectangular tabletop with the Vika Curry legs and a smaller oblong tabletop on some adjustable legs.

The shelves are part of the Norrebo storage system.

Yeah, I actually had the Ikea bin before I got the Mac, but coincidentally it looks like the OS X trash icon.

The desk lamp is Ikea as well, but they don't make that model any more - they still do a similar one though.

I've furnished my last three apartments almost entirely from IKEA. Some things have definitely been better than others, but its the only place to get clean looking designs without paying an utter fortune.

I had a Malm bed, which was very nice. I've never used a box spring, and found it quite comfy. Their Jerker desks are very stable.

Good stuff.

We just (well, a few weeks ago) finished up our living room. 95% of it is from Ikea... even though the closest one is 2 hours away.

Thumb resize.

Thumb resize.

Our Office is also 90% Ikea, but I don't have any shots of that handy..

It's actually really well put together (by meeee), and pretty sturdy. Looks the bees knees tho imo...

Was there also a set of drawers under the desk? Did you remove them or something?

i forgot about this thread my move-in to the new apartment is in 2 weeks and:

after getting on a malm and "simulating" some nocturnal activities we decided to go for something better and ended up with the Pathway bed from Crate+Barrel:



but we are still going to get a few Ikea PS metal cabinets in red:



at least one expidit bookshelf in black/brown:



and i need to get a desk, which since the large jerker i wanted to get is now discontinued will end up being a galant desk:

This is funny and very true! I don't understand what v-aults problem is....

Anyway, my entire room at home and at school is 100% IKEA. I love everything in that store with a passion!

Have you all ever had the Swedish Meatballs and Daim Torte?!? My goodness, sometimes I go there just for the food!!!

IKEA FTW!

I can't wait for the new IKEA in Colorado. It's a pity they discontinued the Jerker series though, because it was cheap, simple, elegant, (and the desk I was going to get ).

But anyway, once I save up some dough and they get one out here, I'm planning on:

Malm Twin Bed
Galant Desk
Misc. Storage/Lamps

They come in a corner or straight configuration and a couple of sizes (see here). I like the corner style but it's just too big for my office!

Oh, cool, I didn't know. It probably changed since the last time I got a galant.
IKEA furniture looks great, but some of it feels cheaply made (not a bad thing, because it's still solid enough to be reliable, and it doesn't cost that much $$). The desks, however, are extremely solid. My entire room is from IKEA, and the desk is the best made piece.

Love what you've done with it, but you might wanna organize those cables. Also, if you have any free time, I would paint the walls if i was you.

We don't have much choice with the cables. We live in an apartment, so we can't flush 'em into the wall like we would if we lived in a house. Still not too bad for a college pad.

And the walls are painted, though the color didn't come through too well in the photographs. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the color at all, but such is the way when live with someone else and can't make the decisions on your own..

They dont have in black on their website though, so that makes me think it will be discontinued.

I also thought about a Galant desk, but I settled for the fredrik instead.
