I just hope that if the "look" catches on here that the poor quality doesn't follow with it. In fact European units are far lighter than their US counterparts. Why is that? Are they sacrificing something?
I think they are sacrificing wood in general, particle board, wafer board, overweight chassis', overweight suspensions and metal framed furniture. I don't think I would miss any of that...
The Sauder Vs Ikea comparison is interesting and may be, as a comparison, spot on. If so, it's a matter of taste and perceived quality and I tend to lean toward Ikea...YMMV
