Creative Victuals
Colorado friends, I am without words here.
Based on my own experience buying Ikea furniture, I would surmise that over half the couples standing here will have one of the biggest arguments in the history of their relationship. If not about the fact that they can’t fit the coffee table into the backseat, it’ll be about where the f’ing allen wrench got off to while both partners are trying to outbuild each other to prove a point they’ve already forgotten about.
IT’S NOT WORTH IT, PEOPLE. See: Ikea: Lessons Learned.

huffingtonpost:

The grand opening of IKEA’s first Colorado location persuaded thousands to form a line stretching around the side of the 13.5 acre store all the way through half of its parking garage. IKEA’s new Centennial location is the second largest in the country, and the Arapahoe County sheriff was expecting the event to draw more than 45,000 today.
IKEA Draws Thousands For Its Grand Opening

Would somebody please warn these people of the lesson we NYC’ers learned over the past few years? That Malm, those Folkviks, that Benno—these (yes, gloriously cheap and beautifully designed) IKEA products will last you likely no more than 8 months before you come crawling back for replacement parts. I love me some IKEA, I do, but sometimes you just gotta look at the furniture stores sitting there in near vacancy just around the corner.
