sorry GD, they are the only places I could think of. I think you can get some decent bargains in Ikea if you take the time to go and look at your local store, they dont always show up online..

IME Argos furniture is cheap 'n' cheerful but doesn't have great longevity. Ikea seems a bit more sturdy but putting the stuff together will prob do your head in. If it was me, I'd try to find some decent furniture shop that has ready-assembled furniture that's not too expensive. We have several here but I don't think they're UK firms so the names wouldn't be of any use to you. Wink

argos stuff is fine - if your good at diy and dont mind strengthening the draws

I did my room two yaears ago with argos stuff and the draws on the main chest well, the bottom trays are falling out and need decent fictures to fix em.

At the end of the day - its a matter of budget and Ikea may well be a better option - the problem with most flatpack items is that they are designed to come apart and to be put together easily - sadly they dont know when we want them to do so and do it ontheir own.

If you can spend a bit a bit more - it pays to go to a decent pine furniture store - most will deliver for you as well and certain last longer than any flatpack (you can paint em to suit your needs if necessary as well)
