How to Assemble an IKEA Markus Office Chair Video

How to Assemble an IKEA Markus Office Chair Video

I have returned to sitting at my office desk. The main reason is so I can share the same space with Sedagive? — she’s significantly shorter than I am and my standing setup made it impossible for her to be near me. Our office area isn’t big enough for BOTH of us to have standing […]

IKEA.com’s Nifty Product Stock Level Prognosis Feature

The IKEA Web site is considered one of the worst ecommerce sites put out by a major company.
