  2. Tanya says:

    Thank you all so much– It’s been sold to a loving home.

    Now to import something soulless to replace it….

    I wish I could get up there. I’d love to have it! Bit of a drive from TX, though.

    I don’t see it on the Ikea website – how much was it new?

  5. Allison says:

    The Hemnes daybed is still available at the Canadian IKEA. You can even order it online.

    My husband and I were interested in buying this bed from Ikea, but hadn’t firmly decided when we first saw a reference here to the fact that it was about to be discontinued. We ran to our local Ikea, and learned that they had plenty in stock and more coming. We decided not to buy it that day, but when we got home we got curious and called Ikea to ask if it was being discontinued. The agent told us that she had not heard it was being discontinued and that she would have been very surprised if they did discontinue it as it is one of the most popular pieces in the Hemnes line. So this bed may be around longer than we think!
