Too late for us to unlearn it now I think...

I like Ikea too, I have taken dates there a few times. It's a good way to judge their character.
If they are fine with grabbing a cheap hotdog and coke and have decent taste in furnishings they pass. If not at least you have help to load the heavier items into the back of the pickup at the end of the date.
I avoid IKEA on weekends, when it turns into nothing short of a Disneyland-like crowd of parents and children carousing through the store, and the cafeteria jammed up beyond capacity. I live in Central Florida, with the closest IKEA to us being in Orlando, and on the weekends it is nearly impossible to go and buy anything without spending 2-3 hours, but it is a good place to practice my novice-level Spanish.
Yeah, we went on a Monday afternoon, and it was quite manageable. Prolly 20% of capacity.
I like IKEA. I LOVE Scandinavian/European/Mid-Century designs. And, while I've heard lots of disparaging remarks about IKEA quality and difficulty in assembling, I have assembled many hundreds of shelves, cabinets, stands, furniture,etc in my life, and have to say IKEA is the best in ease of putting together....instructions, special tools included, pre-drilled holes aligning, and finishes.
The only downside (for me) is there isn't a convenient IKEA to me....although a new one has been built about an hour away.
Now that I'm reminded, I may have to make a trip there this week!
One hundred pack of Swedish oatmeal cookies?
I heard somewhere that Ikea consumes like 1% of the worlds lumber supply
Does this mean you prefer it over Don Quixote? I mean, does IKEA sell sex toys next to their toasters?
I'll bite: what is the British pronunciation of "IKEA"?
EDIT: I bet it's "Ike-EAR"
Like the wizard sez, I pay no attention to what’s behind the curtain!
My Finnish wife insists it is pronounced “ick-ee-a” but I’m not sure if the Swedes agree. I also found out from her that Jysk is actually “yisk”. The cheaper furniture from ikea isn’t always the best. I did have a $35 coffee table that lasted 3 moves and 10 years so it might be the exception. But their stuff that’s a bit pricier definitely holds up and compares to higher end furniture from other stores for a fraction of the price. We have a fair amount of ikea furnishings in our house and it’s survived the kids just fine.
They also sell probably the best vinyl record shelf you can find:
Well, I'll defer to anyone who's spent more of the last 28 years in the UK than me, but that's pretty much how I'd expect it to be said by a Brit.
Time to learn to pronounce IKEA correctly..Right, roight ?>>>>
I've never been in one. The closest one is in Denver and no one has offered to take me. Am I really missing anything?
"I've already got one, can we get six more?"
Go on a Saturday afternoon...
Having said that, my entire apartment in Ikea-based, with an Ikea-designed/installed kitchen, MALM+ bedrooms and KALLAXs all over the place. I am a wizard with a Phillips-head screwdriver and an Allen key. I have also been there so many times that I know the secret passages at our local Ikea to move quickly to where I need to go.
But I will NEVER again visit an Ikea on a Saturday afternoon.
What a romantic!
