How long does it take a couch to stop offgassing?

How long does it take a couch to stop offgassing? I assembled a new Ikea Karlstad sofa five days ago, and while the odor has decreased a bit, it still smells. Worse, there's some VOC that irritates my nose and throat after I sit on it for half an hour or so, which is rather worrying. (My wife gets the same 'acrid feeling' too.) [more inside]

Klippan help plz

The Ikea Klippan sofa is a popular model according to Google and is comfy enough to sit on at the store, but does anyone have any ideas regarding its total lack of head support? I'm thinking I need to add some kind of head rest, like a body pillow held in place with a giant piece of fabric wrapping around it and stapled in the back. This seems like one of those things that somebody somewhere must have figured out already (besides get rid of it). Any ideas?

Where can I find a replacement for a discontinued Ikea lampshade?

[LampshadeFilter]: I accidentally broke a beloved glass Ikea lampshade and I'd like to find a replacement. I was a klutz this morning and broke this lampshade that holds high sentimental value to its owner. It is a medium-blue glass, mushroom shaped lampshade bought around 2002. Ikea doesn't have a stock discontinued items, and eBay and Googling turn up nothing. Pictures are inside. [more inside]

Kitchen cabinet accessories for Ikea cabinets

I'm installing Ikea kitchen cabinets soon. I don't like the wire pull-out shelves they sell, and would rather have some made of wood or other solid material. Anyone have experience with an online seller of such accessories, and/or installing them into Ikea cabinets? Local cabinet resellers charge too much. Bonus points if products are manufactured sustainably.

What happens to the sheep carcass?

My wife and I were at IKEA last week and noticed a big batch of sheep skins for sale, rather cheaply. I know these are popular for some as car seats and the like, but we got to wondering, what happens to the slaughtered sheep from which they are taken? Do people still eat mutton at all? Whether or not one is a vegetarian, at least leather and similar hides presumably come from cows that are also slaughtered for their meat. But what happens to the meat of sheeps?

Best Ikea alternatives?

Tomorrow, we are returning to Ikea for the first time in nearly a decade.

We intend to avoid particleboard items for anything that will bear a significant load. What places would you recommend as alternatives? (more inside) [more inside]

How can I clean this whiteboard?

DryEraseFilter. I bought a whiteboard at Ikea and after using some dry-erase markers on it, it does not erase.

I've tried all the household cleaners I have (bleach, vinegar, Fantastic, Windex) nothing's working. Any recommendations?

Ikea Desks

I've got a chance to buy an Ikea Jerker computer desk locally for a good price (the closest Ikea store is in Houston, we're in Austin). How sturdy are they? I'm used to early-80s solid-steel welded Steelcase desks, and am wondering if the Jerker will be solid enough for a 19" monitor and Mac G4 tower. [more inside]
