The Ikea Expedit.

For reasons that I can’t fathom, this post has had over 25,000 views. I only keep it for you.

I saw my first Ikea Expedit in the home of a friend about 11 years ago.  She was an early adopter.  I remember thinking “wow, I have to get one”.  She used it as a stylish room divider between the lounge area and dining area, and to display some of her artwork and books.

Since then, countless people I know have bought one.  I have seen pictures of them on so many blogs and in so many magazines.  People use them in the kitchen, in the lounge-room, in children’s bedrooms, in shops and offices.  There is even a Flickr group dedicated to the Expedit.  Today, I post a tribute to what I think is a design classic.  Double click on a photo or on the mosiac for closer look.

  1. So many people I know have one! I think the main reason why I don’t have one is because I would struggle to keep things I “display” on them tidy… it will all just be a bunch of clutter on shelves for me…
