No.

I used to love Ikea, but I have learned the error of my ways and despise their mass production ethos.

Unlike those gnomes, who are all finely hand crafted ceramic.

You could power a large town with the smugness emanating from the couple on that advert :)

The good lady just stopped me mid-rant to point out all the Ikea things we have at home :facepalm:

I still have plenty Ikea stuff, lots of it is quite old and surprisingly fresh.

Still hate them though.

I despise Ikea and the plebs who fill their houses with mountains of their unnecessary crap.

Although they did give a friend of mine's wee brother with Down's a job in the canteen dishing up meatballs. So they're only 99.9999999999% hateful.

I have only 2 things left from Ikea that I got from there many many moons ago, a coffee table that is a TV stand for our super large non flat screened TV and one super heavy and large chopping board that would brake your foot if it landed on it, both still going strong.

I don't mind Ikea but HATE gnomes.
