Tearing your hair out over flat-pack furniture instructions will soon be a thing of the past, thanks to Ikea’s new range of snap-together furniture.
The Swedish firm launched a new wedge dowel last year, which features grooves that fit into pre-drilled holes. It’s a snap-together system so you don’t need any tools, and Ikea says it will cut down assembly times by 50 to 80 per cent.
The wedge dowel already features in the Eket table, Regissor cabinets and the Lisabo table and stool, but from April, it will be used in a new furniture including its Platsa click-together wardrobes.
The new range will be rolled out across Ikea’s European stores in April, so we can only hope that the game-changing furniture arrives in Australia soon!
