After reading Alitalia777s thread, I wonder if anyone here never been in Ikea and bought something?? They are so big and are in so many countries, so will be interesting to hear if one have never been in a ikea store, and the reason for that??

My parents bought plenty of furniture when we moved a long time ago. What used to be my desk and I think my bed are from there

Hi,

I have only been in an Ikea once (with my brother who was buying something) but I have never bought anything from there. I guess this is mainly because I still live at home with my parents(!) and have never had the need to buy furniture so far. But one thing I remember is they had a place to put batteries for recycling and even today I have this bag of like 50 batteries which I keep planning to take to Ikea! (it's the only place I know which recycles them!).

P.

I've sneakily used Ikea's car park but never actually set foot in one.

It has good stuff for a cheap price. I always buy their chairs / lamps, they look great.

Exactly the same with me. And I only went because I'd never been before.

Actually their stuff doesn't do anything for me. I sat on a couple of their lounges and I found they were very uncomfortable for me.

Never been and have no plans to do so.

I'm way past that point in my life where I would need to shop at places like that.

I have!

When we moved to our flat here in BCN we bought everything we needed to get started (Cutlery, crockery, pans and pots, bedding, lamps, etc) in fact my whole room is IKEA. I quite like going there actually there is always some cool stuff there.

I've never been to an Ikea myself, nor do I really want to - it was bad enough working in a B&Q warehouse for a year (Orange aprons - *shudders*), but there is a huge one up the road. I'm pretty sure it's where my landlord purchased most of the furniture for our student house from.

We've got a large one in town, my best friend works part-time there, so I've been often.

I can't believe of all cities, Pittsburgh(!!!) has an IKEA. Heck, it's 15 minutes away! A crapload of stuff of ours is from there. Most of the furniture, some toys from long ago, lots of goodies.

My guest room is decorated with Ikea furniture, I love it! They are in Fort Lauderdale, it's 30 minutes from Miami.
I am thinking about buying more for the family room.

I've never been, despite the one recently opened in Canton, MI. If I had a need for furniture I would love to make a trip out there. But my house is full enough as it is.
