Why do people love the low quality furniture of IKEA?

by | Aug 22, 2020 | Furniture Brands, Furniture Costs, Furniture FAQs, Furniture Manufacturers, Furniture Stores | 0 comments

Many people just need low cost furniture that will hold up for a few years and then get left behind.

IKEA manages to do this with a minimalist modern style that is aesthetically acceptable to most people.

From a functionality viewpoint, their products fit through narrow doors and stairways in older homes where more expensive (higher quality) furniture won’t fit.

  • It is not unusual to find IKEA furniture in the basements of $1 million NYC brownstones built over 100 years ago.
  • When the only access is a narrow staircase measuring 28 inches in width or less, your furnishing options become very limited.
