Pardon me while I roll my eyes and chuckle into a knuckle pretty much at the same time.
Honestly, all this fuss is kinda hilarious, isn’t it? Remember when vinyl was pretty much an anachronistic joke and the idea of a major multi-national corporation taking into account the feelings of a weird micro-niche would be worthy of an article on The Onion? Times have changed. Well, sort of. Ahem.
As for me … well, I will confess that I do have two Expedit shelves. And yes, that makes my reaction a bit “I have mine; too bad about you!” To that, I can offer a heartfelt “ptphthtpthtphhtphthpth”.
The issue, at least as I understand it, isn’t so much about Ikea than about vinyl storage. To be honest, there really isn’t a lot that’s out there that’s actually suitable for storing extremely dense/heavy items like vinyl LPs that’s likely to be WAF-approved, and also is priced at non-extortionist levels. Apparently, the trifecta here is what’s the issue. I mean, take one out and there’s a few more options.
