I purchase in store.
Does not matter to me.
I like their soft goods.
If you do not like IKEA...
No one forces you to shop there.
I purchase in store.
If you don't know now you know "bro"No idea "bro" if there is a IKEA here in Colombia as I rent furnished apartments via air bnb but I'm sure you could easily find out on line if you are so inclined.
I too have purchased some furniture from IKEA in Santo Domingo and yes I know IKEA has excellent soft goods as well and like their meatballs sold in the cafeteria. My folks moved their furniture cross country from Pennsylvania to California so they did move once in their lives. I've moved too many times to count and have given away and re-purchased.Thank you for your answer and your advice.
Glad everything is working out for you.
I have had no problem with some furniture from IKEA.
Some of it is made out of real wood.
If I do not move for 30 years I do not see why I would not be able to pass it on.
But why would I want to
The furniture I received from my Mother when she died I helped her buy.
She wanted a different look.
Different ways of living for different folks.
Do you know IKEA has excellent soft goods
They do not last for years but they dry my *** real good "bro"
I am posting from EAST SIDE.
Where you posting from
Of all the furniture in my house.... the best and the ones that never break are the pieces made by a small furniture shop in a barrio...I find what I like at a store, take a photo a few measurements...and he makes me beautiful things for about half the price..........Agree with you.
I have a dining table from Ikea which has 10+ years. Someone had returned it and the sales guy wanted my phone number, so I had a great price. I changed the chairs a couple of times (non-Ikea).
Other stuff, you get what you pay for. I have a nice corner sofa, I changed the legs and bought new cushion covers, almost the price of the original sofa, but then when I get tired of it, I will just changed it up or buy a cheap new one and "pimp" it.
The things that don't stand the test of time are perfectly fine with me, I get tired of things quickly, and change my decor every couple of years or so, so Ikea is perfect for someone with furniture ADHD like me.
In DR, with the possibility of the artisans replicating for a reasonable price (I tried state side, crazy prices !), it s less of a use. I am working on terrace furniture made right now. A dream !
