You had me at “no assembly”

We love IKEA because they have amazing and trendy stuff at such affordable prices! But unfortunately, reasonable prices most times means assembling the items yourself… and when it’s furniture, that can sometimes take FOREVER!

Find out which of our favorite IKEA furniture pieces require little to NO assembly!

1. GLADOM tray table
