Yep. Most of Ikea’s bad rep comes from bandwagon jumping. People always tell me how much they love my place, and they’re always shocked to learn that half of my furniture is Ikea.
Depending on your intent, there’s some stuff at Ikea that is a waste of money and some stuff that is a smart use of money. For example, if you want floating shelves that don’t need high durability, Ikea’s Lack shelves are practically identical to floating shelves that are a hundred times pricier.
Personally though, I would have bought [Modernica pendants](http://modernica.net/lighting/pendant/) instead of those [Ikea Fillstas](http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40155009/).
