My IKEA Mobile Office – I work everywhere, anywhere, whenever!

I’m an IKEA products user; but then again, who’s not right?

While some swear by Ikea products and Ikea meatballs, I have to say that I’m not a die hard fan. For me, importance lies in the products’ durability, price and functionality, not so much on branding and popularity.

Having said that, whenever a need for furniture or home paraphernalia arises, I’ll start my search at Ikea. In a way, Ikea has become a household name, and a default furniture and furnishing item shopping destination for Malaysians in KL.

The recent house moving and new office set-up has triggered the need for some furniture shopping. Armed with my IKEA card, I braved the notorious LDP – Curve traffic and stepped into IKEA, where brilliantly set-up models of ideal home living has got us Malaysians spellbound and no doubt lusting after ever since it opened its doors years back.

Some items are familiar and almost permanent. I’m guessing that’s good, especially if you grew fond of them and want to buy duplicates or replacements. Some are new and really nifty, like this particular one which is so useful that it’s now my favourite item in the house!

As usual Ikea items are idiot-proof for easy assembly. All you need is some patience in reading the accompanying guide.

Tadaa!! Assembled and ultra-mobile Laptop Table by Dave. RM89 only!

It’s perfect for an easily bored character like me. I can’t work or stay in one area for long. Thus I move my workstation around, even at home. Currently my favourite area is outside in my little garden, where there’s gentle breeze and sunny warmth. 🙂

Now I hope Ikea has a larger version of this mobile laptop table! Then I can have more than just 1 laptop and a mug on it!

    Oh… I have the same table too which I bought in Singapore. It’s pretty useful for almost all types of chairs. But it starts to turn yellowish after some time. There’s another called Brada Laptop Support. It’s pretty good as well.

      I think I saw the Brada.. that’s just for the lap right?
      Urghh.. I know. I love white stuffs but hates the fact that it gets discoloured!

      I guess that’s the appeal of IKEA!
      Design, durability and convenience, not to mention the brilliant functionality of each of their products! Hard to beat!

    This may not be the best place to ask this, but I’m interested in seeing if I’m eligible for a higher priced rental and I don’t know how to find a professional listing property management firm… have you ever heard of this company? They’re listed in the city of Sacramento, CA 15 minutes from my home and I can’t find reviews on them – Sacramento Property Management Consultants, 600 H St Sacramento, CA 95814 (916) 282-3103.
