    I have a friend that works there for a slight discount. She said the Besta collection is a better quality than the other line.

    :dunno:

    ikeas stuff is great.

    lately, their quality has been improving, and furniture that style would cost a ton more as a "better" place.

    well, some pieces have better quality than others yeah. But that not the reason why i dislike it. Because i have feelings that IKEA rips off other designers. But then again, they are offering some good stylings at more affordable prices than the real designers, so very fucking hard to decide how i feel about ikea.

    True but it's better than most "warehouse" furniture stores where they really rip off the exact design. I think IKEA just picks off ideas from designers.

    The good thing is that the furniture is self assemble, so you can take some extra precautions when putting it together to make sure it's sturdy. I do it with all my stuff from there and I haven't had a problem yet.
