If you love IKEA but can’t stand assembling its furniture, listen up.
The Swedish furniture company recently announced that its new living room line — REGISSÖR — will not only require zero tools to assemble, but according to a promotional video, the furniture can be built "in less than five minutes." This comes as big news from a brand notorious for requiring blood, sweat, tears and hours of your life to put together its furniture.
IKEA touts that the time-saving trick is found in its new special wedge dowels that replace the screws, nuts, bolts and other hardware that would typically come with its furniture.
“By making it even easier to assemble our furniture, we want to give people who may find it challenging a new reason for choosing IKEA,” Janice Simonsen, design spokesperson for IKEA, said in a press release.
The REGISSÖR line will roll out this month, featuring a bookshelf, cabinets and a coffee table, while the new assembly approach will also be available on the STOCKHOLM sideboard and cabinet. Additional storage units using tool-free assembly are slated for spring 2015.
