IKEA’s ‘Lack’: Lack of quality and just simply sucks

Got this piece of ‘furniture’ at IKEA local store for $12.99. I bought it for a single photo session not related to the blog subject.

Well, the name says for itself: ‘Lack’. Lack of quality, indeed. Check this out how this piece of furniture looks just after an hour of a very gentle use:

Pressed paper inner core covered with thin layer of pressed wood chip waste.

Good suggestion for IKEA: learn origami and make ‘furniture’ out of plain paper. But please, put a note somewhere saying “For use at IKEA demo booth only. Not intended for home use”.

However, what should I expect from the thirteen bucks furniture, and also if their boss is still riding public transportation to/from work and travels economy class, – all this just to save money?
