Ikea Lack Side Table
Advantages: Price, look good, good quality
We have the lack coffee table in the oak colour and we had been really pleased with it. It had actually been so good for us we bought another one to house our old chameleons tank. Therefore, when we were furnishing our new flat over 18 months ago now I was quite keen to get back to Ikea.
I felt we needed more space to put things around the living room and when I saw these side tables I knew they were perfect for my needs. They are a simple design but they match the coffee table in the range perfectly. It was the price that appealed to me even more - £6. At this price it really wouldn't matter if they were wrecked within a year.
I went with the oak colour because our living room had oak furniture but there are lots of different colour options including birch effect, black, black-brown, white, oak effect, high gloss pink, high gloss turquoise, high gloss red and high gloss grey. The high gloss versions seem to retail for the slightly higher price of £8. The colours have had a rethink since I bought mine because the pink version wasn't available and I have only just seen this option - its safe to say next time I am near an Ikea I will be getting a pink version for my bedroom!
The table comes flat packed in shrink wrap. The legs are placed next to the table top and it is easy to transport home. I put these tables together myself and it is a simple case of screwing the legs onto the table and your done. Each one took less than 10 minutes to put together.
The finished result looks really good and it definitely doesn't look like it cost £6! The table top is 55cm x 55cm and the height of the table is about the same. The table has a really modern feel to it in my opinion and I love the simplicity of the design.
I have one of these in the living room and one in the bedroom. I gave the third table to my sister because I really didn't need three! She uses hers as a side table in her living room for drinks etc whilst I use one of mine to house the fish tank and the other to house cuddly toys and photos frames. The tables are strong. My fish tank is something like 55 litres and it supports this with no problem. However, the tables themselves are very light, it is easy to pick up and move it definitely isn't a hassle.
The tables have been in use for over 18 months now and they still look as good as new. There are no surface scratches or dents despite me not exactly being careful with them and the cats using them as a bench! They look perfect and I like their appearance.
I would definitely buy these again as they are a super price for a genuinely well designed quality product. They look great in both my living room and my bedroom and they are really useful. Recommended.
