We’re thrilled to announce that Positive Fanatics is coming back. After chatting with Armand about the future of Positive Fanatics and our commitment to the longevity of its position in the online IKEA community, we’ve agreed to take over and continue in the tradition of offering timely news on IKEA, information on store openings, events and sales, and other tasty tidbits about the store we all love – IKEA.
We don’t plan to change much, though we’ll be posting more frequently (like Armand was able to in the beginning) and focusing on the stories of IKEA fanatics – that’s YOU!
So, please…help us get off on the right foot! Do you have a story to tell? Photos to share? A complaint, grudge or just comments? Send them in! Let’s get this baby moving!
Welcome back, Positive Fanatics!

The Ikea Factor is a project created in hopes of creating a collective of ideas from anyone who thinks they can improve upon Ikea. Whether it be the designs themselves or the stores, everything’s up for grabs. What would Ikea be like if done through the eyes of the people who shop there?
Edit 2008: theikeafactor.blogspot.com no longer exists.
Good luck Dylan!
