Clever IKEA


10/25/2013 by syrbal-labrys

I don’t much shop at IKEA these days. Our closest store in Renton, Washington, is drab, poorly lit, looking tacky and the check out area reminds me of a Walmart with a morale issue. Too many products are cheap Chinese shit. Yule-tide decorations that were once sparkly pretty glass are now cheap plastic or paper…or dust-attracting felt. Too many products are pressed wood, and the once mostly wool rugs are being replaced with synthetics. They don’t get really neat live plants anymore, either. So all the things that once attracted me are pretty well history and phased out.

But now and again, the Sweden based company has an inspired idea. Like refugee housing that might be as inexpensive as $1000 a piece.
