Yes, of course (The original IKEA store is just some Swedish mil away from here, so...)

I think that IKEA is one of the best stores in the world. The price, the quality and the fact that when you buy furniture, you will walk away with MANY hours of fun in front of you
(Seriously, we're remodeling the kitchen and bought everything at IKEA. We've been at it for over a week now. But it looks good...)

Honestly, I shouldn't really respond to this. IKEA is my favourit store of all I can think of, and I can and have spent so many hours in the couch department...
(And, you can buy Swedish food at the store)

What do you think btw?

None here, but have been curious about Ikea. Have never been to one, maybe will drop by next time in the DFW area. I have heard there are alot of nice kitchen items. Is everything made in Sweden?

IKEA is a cool store to go to. I actually have fun going to it. Weird, I know.

IKEA is very cheap, but the quality of the furniture matches that. Not saying it is bad, but it is not the best. But still good for your average buyer.

We have an IKEA about 3 hours from where we are in Woodbridge VA. I just went to it for the first time Labor Day weekend and it was pretty neat. Its HUGE and there is so much to look at! I got some really cool lights for my daughter's room and a few other items. The prices were very reasonable. Dont know if I'd buy furniture from there but we werent in the market so I didnt really take the time to look real well. I would go back to the store again for sure. Its a great place if you love to shop!

I love Ikea... my favorite things in the store are the pictures and the fun decorations. Last year, we did our whole living room (end tables, coffee tables, and tv stand) for pretty cheap... although we have already had to get a new tv stand. The price is great, but like most had said, the quality is not 100%, but it does the trick.

I try and not go there that often because I would spend way too much money... and waste hours of a day!!!

I visited IKEA in Jonkoping, Sweden. They had no Swedish toilets. I want a Swedish toilet! They are the coolest!

I love it, but I'm careful about what I buy there. If I'm looking for something that needs to be durable for whatever reason, I'll shop elsewhere. But kitchen gadgets, throw rugs, fabrics, furniture that won't need to take a beating is all good.

Stay away from the wooden blinds. I'm just sayin' ...

We have one in the suburbs of DFW (Frisco, TX) and I've been a few times. Use to visit the one in Elizabeth, NJ when I lived in NYC. They have terrific housewares and kitchenware and the cafeteria with the Swedish entrees is very good. You can also buy the food items, as Sweden mentioned earlier.
