I've been in the fence for years about getting one. I finally caved... Hearing that they are being discontiued made me really decide quick. And dd and I were going out of town for something else, and had to check out the ikea. Cha-Ching.... Got the 4x4 expedit, the hemnes 8 drawer dresser, and 3 of the 2x2 new kallax (which seriously, next to the expedit, look the same. There is maybe a 1/4" difference in the outside wall thickness. If no one had told me, I wouldn't notice!)

Can't wait to get it all put together and make my room usable!!

Is the Kallax the new Expedit?
I know they're replacing the Expedit with something and I tink it was called Kallax.

Did it come big, like 5x5?

Bethie...the Kallax won't be made in 5x5.

2x2, 4x2, 4x4, there might be another size too.

I am waiting for all the kallax - they are big changes which will make the new kallax stuff a easier to combine with more ikea products (hardware to attach the desktop will be sold separate, etc).

The kallax pieces that I got won't be sitting directly with my 4x4, and I couldn't get the expedit in 2x2 white. So I decided it was better to match color!

I, too, got an Expedit. I probably wouldn't have gotten it as soon as I did but like you, OP, when I heard they were being discontinued, I took a trip down to IKEA to pick one up before they were sold out. The Kallax sounds interesting, too - but I wanted the 5 x 5.

I got my Expedit 5x5 about two or three weeks ago. I LOVE IT! I want another one for my family room. I'm going to make a trip back down next weekend and try to get one more before they are all gone.

Yay for you! I want another 4x4 so bad. Our closest IKEA is 6 hours away - we were there in February but they were out then. They have them now but I can't make the trip.

Good to know that the new Kallax is very close to the Expedit. I'll be back in MN next February and hope to snag one then.

I'm 4 hours from one too, which was part of the problem. I didn't see the Kallax in the showroom (unless I didn't notice since they really are that similar), but there were probably 50 of them in the warehouse! And only $35 for the 2x2! I was going to get the 2x4 expedit, but it was $90... Seemed like a no-brainer to get 2 kallax for cheaper. It won't matter for my room placement anyway. So, since they were there, I got 3

I bought the 5x5 for my new craft room when we moved into our new house last year. I absolutely LOVE it. It holds a ton and looks so fabulous.
