Good news for everyone, IKEA products are about to get a lot easier

Have you spent all afternoon assembling that IKEA flatpack to discover that it's not as tight as you expected, and now there's a little wobble? Hours of frantic searching for bits are re-reading instructions?

Well all that's about to change...

With a new innovation called a wedge dowel, pieces will now slide together instead of the bags, and bags, of nuts and bolts. Items will now slip together, giving a more solid bond, this means that you get to stop yourself from pulling your hair out, and manufacturers save on costs.

It's a win-win situation, and still looks sleek and stylish.

The next line of furniture will feature wedge dowel joints that slip together
