Excellent furniture

We have some malm drawers and they're fab! Really deep! Shame they dont do the malm wardrobe.
If I was to be critical of Malm drawers.... they're not built the way they were 10-15 years ago. I would rather Ikea had put the prices up slightly and kept to the same quality. However, they're still good at what they do.

IKEA tall wardrobes are really dangerous with very high centre of gravity unless screwed to wall . Buy Argos instead . Much better and cheaper furniture with Argos . I would not worry about 2 drawer high but their tall wardrobes are really dangerous

the included wall brackets that come with the drawers would prevent this. Not sure if the recalled versions had the brackets.. The new manual clearly states they should be used..and to be honest the same would happen with any drawers??

Had the parents been just lazy and stupid, they would not have been given 46 million dollars. There is a design flaw as well.
is it just the white ones that are discounted

It remains;
the particular model of dresser involved was a US Only design
the parents ignored the instructions to use the Safety Strap

Still. Why let facts get in the way of a bit of excitement, eh?

Let's hope the parents involved manage to get their heads round how a handbrake works.

Wish it was in UK as well. Hotpoint/ Whirlpool still refusing to refund or recall . Consumers have very few rights in UK that big companies take us for granted. No class action lawsuits in UK possible.

Poor design and poor quality . I like their cutlery , batteries , and low height furniture . Even have lunch in their restaurant. But their tall furniture is very dangerous. No doubt about that.

Physics mandates heavy base for independent tall furniture to keep centre of gravity low .

You could allways Do some research before pedalling your outdated biased viewpoint??
No?? Too much effort maybe? Easier to just bash ??
And I can't vouch for old instructions but for well over a year the instructions make it quite obvious that they are to be fixed to the wall period. And not used without doing so. So anyone that chooses to do so it's their choice not IKea's but over the last year they have all been redesigned anyway adding a heavier external brace to the external front of the stack rather than previously inset and sat back slightly, as well as fractionally raising the front edge only by a mm or two but it sets the cog back and makes it harder to overcome, there's another small change too but in any case as above they make it extremely clear that the drawers should be attached at the top rear....
If you cannot attach, due to renting etc... The product isn't for you.... You can't just say "it shouldn't need fixing " and use it anyway.

But for the money,(can't compare with 10-15 year-old design....) But even now, excellent VFM! I've matched the malm drawer sets with the oak veneer full height wardrobes and veneered doors and am extremely happy with the overall fit and finish and match (they're the same veneer) are they the quality of old school hand made furniture? Clearly not, but they're not the same price either.

I don't know why you're being so deeply unpleasant and offensive about this.

The expectation that a set of drawers should be able to remain standing while in use is not unreasonable. Yes perhaps some parents could be criticised for not reading the revised instructions (more on that below), but it hardly means their children deserved to die.

Maybe you're not aware but when the Malm draws were first released they apparently didn't contain any warnings or instructions to attach them to a wall. It was only after some kids died that they thought to mention it.

You are defending a faceless global corporation to whom pursuit of profit appears more important than the safety of children. I may be "dull", but I think you might want to reconsider your priorities in life.

Perhaps you don’t like straight talking people with common sense!

when my kids were young in the early 80’s we didn’t have warnings on furniture, we used our common sense and made sure our kids didn’t use a chest of drawers as a climbing frame.

Perhaps all the others that agree with my comments are deeply offensive too?

Or maybe they have common sense just like quite a few people have
Has anyone else noticed that IKEA white Malm range doesn't keep it colour and goes an off white in time.
No one can really comment as no one truly knows the facts of those people’s situation. At the end of the day, children have died so some animosity is inevitable.

Unfortunately, you can’t always rely on common sense because because not everybody thinks the same way. What may make sense to you may not be so obvious to others. We had Malm dressers in our house for years, never bothered fixing them to the walls. I worked in future assembly and delivery for about 10 years, and I can tell you for a fact that even the more expensive and well made furniture behaves in the same way if you open too many drawers, or don’t fix to the wall etc.

However, cue the arrival of children. Out came the straps and wall fixings without a second thought: to me, given my background, it was a no brainier.

It’s always the way: things get addressed after something bad has happened. It’s easy to persecute IKEA; “they should of done this and they should have done that”-well, they didn’t, and the absolute worst happened-I can’t even begin to imagine how I’d feel-all the money in the world couldn’t replace my children-and I wouldn’t want it. But, they have now addressed it so that all that needs to be said. And if the fittings are missing, a call to IKEA and they send them out for free. I got about 8 packs through the post and I didn’t even contact them initially.

On topic, that’s a decent price and the MALM is a nice range.

Ours are 6 years old now and still the same colour
Maybe they should have slots at the bottom of the units where you can slide a couple of 10kg plates used at gyms. Screwing to the wall ain't really an option for people that rent or have that cheap plasterboard in new homes/flats xx
