I like the design and color used in the kitchen and bedroom, so much ideas and creativity there that meet the needs as well.

I think Ikea would be good for temporary furniture - college dorm or for your kids who are rough on furniture...otherwise, I wouldn't touch it.

Bit annoying to have to assemble.

I own two Benno cd/dvd/book shelves. Good stuff. I also have an IKEA loveseat thing. That's not so good. When I can afford a proper couch I am going to burn this thing or throw it off my balcony.

I think IKEA is pretty good. There are definitely hits and misses. I got a metal bed rack there for about $70 and it was quite good.

I have a couple of metal beds (don't ask). The no longer make the ones I have, but one is at the 6 year mark and the second is at about 8 years and doing fine. I also have Robin desk I purchased 10 years ok. It is doing OK and survived 2 local moves. My chairs (the super cheap unfinished wooden chairs that are like $20 each) aren't doing well and will need to be replaced after 6 years. Same is true with my table. I do not think they have it any more, but it was square with a laminate top and can be folded into a triangle. The finish isn't perfect anymore, but it functions well. I also have a friend we the same table. She is at about 7 years and I am somewhere around 6 years. All in all I find ikea furniture decent.
