Happy 30th birthday Billy, you flimsy ol’ thing!
Meet my pet blog.
Next month IKEA will introduce a new, deeper version of its ubiquitous “BILLY” bookcase. The flat-pack furniture giant is already promoting glass doors for its bookshelves. The firm reckons customers will increasingly use them for ornaments, tchotchkes and the odd coffee-table tome—anything, that is, except books that are actually read.
In my experience though, the BILLY bookcase is a bit flimsy to begin with, as with most IKEA furniturea.
