I also remember buying stuff from IKEA as early as 1984.
Back then, the quality was decent and the price was fair.
These days, other furniture manufacturers have found ways to lower their costs and match IKEA quality.
Don't get me wrong, most of IKEA's stuff are still pretty nice, but the rest are junk.(to put it politely)
Prices are no longer competitive.
Off the top of my head, I can think of these IKEA products that I purchased in the last 10 to 15 years.
All are what I'd consider to be junk after just a year or two of normal use.
