IKEA’s Newest Invention: UPPLEVA
IKEA has developed a new line, it’s answer to all-in-one media. UPPLEVA is a unit of furniture which is also a television, speakers, media player, game console and more. The entertainment/furniture system can be the answer to saving space and outfitting your apartment quickly and easily. UPPLEVA is going to be easy to set up and very customizable. The size, color and look can be changed to fit your needs. There is built in DVD and Blu-Ray player and white remote which controls everything.
If you are lucky enough to live near one of IKEA’s flagship stores in Stockholm, Milan, Paris, Gdansk or Berlin, you will be able to see for yourself when UPPLEVA is debuted in June. Starting price is around $960. I was unsure of how IKEA would deal with parts breaking / replacing broken parts such as the DVD player, which is known to happen in all-in-one units. If you watch the video you will notice there is a 5 year guarantee on all parts! It is an interesting idea. What do you think?
