NotMyAlt: Flint Ironstag: There are always shortcuts hidden away. You don't have to walk the whole way round. You can go more or less straight to the section you want./I've been in the very first IKEA store, the round one near Stockholm.//End CSB.Have you ever been to Almhult? Dinky little town known for, of all things, the first IKEA store.
Watubi: Ugh, my wife loves that stuff. I inherited my mom's furniture, which came from her mother's mother. It has lasted for generations yet my wife insists on redecorating every few years with those planned out Ikea rooms. Well, she has to because that crap falls apart within that time under normal usage. At least it's cheap. At least I'll have something to eat on if I ever have to move out, I guess
itazurakko: while the lamps were interesting they all use bizarre bulbs only available at Ikea, which rules them out for me.
DerAppie: the money is in the banana stand: People do not value putting things together themselves versus it being put together for themExcept that they do. Tons of research says that people do. Hundreds of papers about people preferring the thing they made over a pre-made, factory perfect substitute.
Watubi: Oh, about the article. The Ikea effect regarding people valuing something they put together themselves is nonsense. Give any person walking into that store a blank check, they'll gladly go to Pottery Barn instead and like it just as much.
