Who doesn’t love a good bargain on furniture and spending hours struggling to set-up your new desk or shelving unit…except for when the furniture randomly implodes??
IKEA is making headlines after reports of their glass furniture randomly shattering. The most recent incident involved an Indiana woman who claims she heard a “big boom” in the direction of her son’s bedroom, which turned out to be his glass-top ‘Glasholm’ IKEA desk exploding.
The company would like customers to keep in mind that, “over time, small knacks and fractures can affect the durability of tempered glass… However it is designed to shatter to minimize risk of injury.”
So far, IKEA has not issued any recalls for the glass furniture implicated in the recent cases.
