I loved Ikea, now I'm sad :(I loved Ikea, now I'm sad :(Diary

Their 200cm billy shelves are awesome and I use the Morliden doors on mine (they are glass doors with a small metal frame). So I wanted to get another one. First thing I saw on the online store was Billy's with more depth, like normal Billy's have 28cm depth but now they can also have 40cm what is actually very awesome. I will probably not replace them bc I've gotten mine just some months ago. But then as I searched for Billy morliden they were no longer available for the 200cm one. I've contacted Ikea and they took them out of stock and they will not come back (as I can only speak for germany).

They also have the Oxberg glass doors but they have a pretty big wood frame that also goes in the middle of the door. Here is a picture with morliden on the left and oxford on the right: ibb.co/6P1d0L2

It makes me sad cause in my opinion the morliden doors were the best for figure collectors and now my shelves will also not match anymore because of different doors. I cannot buy pre-owned bc I don't have a car to transport it. I think I have to learn to live with it.

Leonettaisas1個月前#111248305Thank you so much for telling, hope they get to Germany soon so I can live the rest of my life in peace.
Good luck! I saw they had them in Spain, and were unavailable in the US until maybe a week ago so hopefully they're coming soon, esp. with IKEA's supply issues.

biodigital1個月前#111248279I saw this thread because I was looking for non-detolf options.
After seeing the Morliden being discontinued, I searched around Reddit and found that IKEA now has Hogbo glass doors for the Billy! They seem to be the same as the Morliden ones and have been available in a few countries (they might be very new). Worth checking out as an alternative!

Feel this! The shelves I own, I have six of them, five I bought years ago and one I bought slightly more recently. My sixth one cost as much but the quality had a huge drop and the way the legs are made they don't click together with the old style anymore. makes me wish I had bought my sixth long ago or could time travel, it's always the risk with I'll complete this furniture later and then bam! Discontinued or quality drop.

That sucks so bad :( I only have one billy with these doors atm because the apartment I live in is too small for more. But was planning on expanding as soon as I move, because they offer a good amount of space and the doors are as minimalistic as it gets for the price. Really wonder what a good alternative would be now. Don‘t like any of the other door options they have and can‘t live with different doors on multiple shelves anyway. So I’ll probably have to sell it when time comes around.

I just hate the fact that Ikea often seems to discontinue items I feel a lot of people bought and are still interested in. Detolf, Billy and Besta are the only things that kept me buying from them. Btw. did they also discontinue the Besta doors in the same style? Don’t know if they were named Morliden also. Can‘t find them on the website anymore. :/ Really salty about all of this, because I‘m now stuck with furniture I can‘t buy additional stuff for, which was always a huge plus for me when it comes to Ikeas „main line“ sets.

Okeno3個月前#109370507Do they really have 40 cm Billy's coming? I don't see them on IKEA Canada and never saw them for years (including when I bought mine a few years ago), although I read they used to exist like 10 years ago. I really wanted a deeper bookshelf for my collection..


The Billy I bought is a 40cm deep one and I put two Morliden doors on it, I live in Europe though.

Morliden doors being discontinued will definitely affect my set up in my second room, as I still need more shelves for it. Thankfully, my main collecting area is set up already and all my Billys have the doors on them.

I have two Oxberg sets on my two Billys in my living room, but I don't like them as much for figures because of the thick borders that basically block sight of things you have in the middle or on the very sides of the shelves.

Oxberg doors, as others have said, are not that bad. Personally I would have preferred to get Morliden, but I bought the extensions for the top of the bookshelves (to make it look like a "bookshelf in the wall") and they do not make Morliden for the extensions. But in the end, I think the Oxberg turned out fine enough.

They still have those doors in the Netherlands. :)
I’m one of those Detolf collectors and I used to buy them for €40,- but now they are around €70,-. Pretty steep increase. Oh well, it’s better expensive than not for sale at all :P
