We bought a LOT of Stolmen on Saturday to turn a room into a walk in wardrobe, but the little suspension and end fittings were marked 'temporarily out of stock'. No problem, we can assemble the rest to get started and get them when they come back in.
Erm no! When we called, these fittings have been withdrawn from all stores for quality reasons and the staff at Ikea checked the system and told us there are no plans or dates for a replacement .
Ikea will still let you buy Stolmen, even though it cannot be assembled without the suspension fittings.... so we have a room full of poles and cannot fit the drawers or shelves!
There's a difference between it being 'discontinued' and the staff not seeing any date for it to be re-stocked. The latter happens frequently, while the former...well, it happens - that's how IKEA keeps their offerings fresh and new.
But often stock will run out, or the manufacturer will be changed and there will be nothing left until the new stock arrives. Sometimes there's very little warning and sometimes there's lots.
I wish Macks was still hanging around - she could chime in on this with some authority. Miss her.
i just called ikea, they said the stolmen line is not being discontinued, only the silver-colored parts and the tv wall unit. everything white is still available, and will be for the forseeable future.
