If by "tasteless" you mean "non-elitist", then sure. If you mean real taste, then I don't get it - a lot of Ikea stuff is poorly built, but very aesthetically pleasing and practical. I certainly am not ashamed to shop at Ikea.

I am just waiting for the chain of Ikea Kitchen fast-food restaurants. I love some of the stuff they sell there. What's that thing with the fish and the bread?

Uh, if I was going to make a point about tastelessness ruling the world I would have picked Gates or the WalMart heirs...

No, but he did have to assemble the award himself when he got home. It only took one Allen wrench (supplied).
