R.I.P Ikea Fira...and So Long Perfectly Hackable Storage.

The IKEA Fira drawer unit - the awesome little wooden box deal that everyone loves to customize - has been cancelled...like, already. Like there's no longer any mention of it on their website.

Lame. Sure, they were among the most difficult of Ikea products to assemble [read: nearly impossible], but they were crazy useful, and could be made to match nearly any room or function.Look at all these assembled by Core77:0fira006.jpg

Moppe was the original...Fira was a later, cheaply made replacement modeled after Moppe.Originally Moppe available in at least 2 different configurations. Now in 2020 I still have/use my original 4 Moppe from the early 2000's. Built to last!

OK, that one with the maps all over it is perfect!

Hmm, have you verified that they don't exist in the actual stores any more? The Ikea website has been hurting lately... both the Malm and Hopen beds appeared to be missing last month, but both have resurfaced. It could be an IT issue (fingers crossed).
