Goodbye, Expedit

I love Expedit.

I have many of them. I have stacked an Expedit on top of another Expedit. I have stacked other types of bookcases on top of Expedits. They are filled to capacity with books, DVDs, knick-knacks, and of course, more books. There are books on the shelves, stacked on top of other books, and on top of the units. One hosts my TV and media equipment. One cube on one Expedit holds my old laserdisc collection.

And they’re going away. The Expedits, that is.

I mean, not mine. Not without somebody getting cut.

IKEA is doing away with the Expedit line. Or, well, changing how they make the units and re-naming it KALLAX.

Live on, EXPEDIT. But even as KALLAX, I bet you’ll still be a pain in the ass to put together.
