Stunning lamination, and cheap chicken. Thanks, great naration. Whilst I do not like Ikea, I have been inspired in design there. Which has helped me along in my own workshop.

I’m bias as a passionate for saw dust, but, I’ll say I love your self produced music. I love the sharing of others design. I love the idea of sharing the volume of others designs in one “space and time” ! I love the inspiration offered by work that is above the level of quality I may be capable of.
Thanks for sharing,
Steph_Louisana USA Watched the whole thing !

phillip hogan says:

joe obrien says:

Lincoln Meredith says:

Beautiful furniture with ridiculous prices

Stephen B says:

Very informative and inspiring… certainly makes me want to get in the wood shop and create. Thank you.

Hi, Jeremy! I`m just a buyer and user of furniture that`s available to me. I loved this video from its educational point of view and I don`t think that it`s too long. While enjoying this I also thought about the majority of people I know (me included) who feel very lucky to be able to buy furniture even from IKEA. Most people are struggling with everyday life according to all the expenses. In difficult times it really is hard to embed art, quality, craftsmanship and culture into society`s way of thinking. Thank you. I loved watching this upload. Josi from Slovenia

“But I wanted to let the dust settle before ..” @1:16. I had a good chuckle. Sorry, no irony, it’s just spontaneity at work. Thank you for all the great work you’ve done over the decades Jeremy. I haven’t finished watching, but I’m already convinced that this documentary is going to be great. All the best from Paris.

Nice emigenation and work

jason turnidge says:

Enjoyed the film!

Steph Boeker says:

What about James Krenov …… rip ? I know he’s not British but, neither is IKEA.

Woodomain - Jeremy Broun says:

I would appreciate feedback comments from viewers: 1) is the film too long? 2) how much of the film did you watch? 3) do you think the ‘Furniture snapshot’ should be left out or moved to a later slot in the film? 4) any other constructive comment?
