    Well, that's a lie, their kitchen utensils are sometimes okay and their battery multipacks are cheaper than Sainsburys' ones next door.
    I'd not touch their furniture with a bargepole, though. I had a job installing kitchens not so long ago, and every IKEA install was hideous to manage.
    Looking on their webby, the desk I mentioned above was like the 'Micke' but with a drawer unit on one side... The whole thing, one-handed, lifted right up. I swear you could even feel it flexing when putting a SFF PC build onto it.

    Back in the... what, 90s... IKEA was semi-reasonable and somewhat better than MFI, but today it's almost pound-shop level tat.
    I'd hope their really expensive stuff is better, but at those prices I could probably get far better solid wood furniture.
    Well I'm going to have to disagree with you Ttaskmaster. I've got several kallax (the cube units) hanging almost over my head full of consoles, tools etc. I've also got likely the same desk (with the cupboard rather than the draw unit) and as I mention a 32" AOC monitor, large desktop PC on it and numerous other stuff and no issues... The stuff is light weight due to clever construction but that doesn't mean weak. I've had cheap furniture from the likes of Argos and more expensive stuff from Next but always go back to IKEA because it does last and its cheap.

They're fairly certain one person crapped their pants too, from the questionable seat pattern left behind.
    also, more relevant to your comment - rainbow lit bathrooms are already out there!

    LED bathroom strips


    and LED toilets are now a thing.

    Ikeia will make ROG led cheap, no escape now.There are some classic things made of wood, those are really great, like chairs and tables hope they will not glue led to it.

    In my experience of the two brands I have more faith in Ikea's build quality than Asus.

    This could be great, but I guess we'll see. The Logitech & Herman Miller partnership is also very interesting though I'm hoping IKEA branch out into a huge array of products that would be useful... Desks etc.
