IKEA: mixed feelings, but so affordable!

IKEA recently unveiled their newest convenience: Pre-ordering!
Speaking from a furniture-design perspective, IKEA represents some notably mixed feelings. Its easy to hate cheap and ugly furniture, but cheap and attractive? I'm torn. On the one hand, you can line IKEA next to, for instance, any department store and they're miles ahead. Alternatively, its tough to deny the portion of landfill-bound ikea products. It seems to me, until we figure out how to talk everyone into living with less, we're left to choose the lesser of 2 evils. Either way, you're bookshelf is going to fall apart in 2 years.
