Not to be confused with this:
I want to own a set but I always talk myself out of it. I already have tons of storage. I think metal is too contemporary for my look. But then I see the EMU peeking out from various places on TV; all with different decors and I begin to think again: "maybe I could make it work."
Two are seen in Leonard & Sheldon's apartment on The Big Bang Theory.
At the nurse's station in the clinic on House.
On the kitchen counter on iCarly (more on that tomorrow).
In the newly rebuilt / redesigned Castle on CHUCK.
(Side note: This was a difficult shot to get. Since the premiere of Season 4 there were many glimpses, partial and blurry views of the EMU. I have a folder of almost but not good enough to post screencaps. Thankfully I got a clean cap and it also features the lovely Yvonne Strahovski. You're welcome.)
I'd say they are quite versatile. Next time I look at them in the store and think I cannot make it work I need to remember the following - All IKEA products can be modified and hacked. You just have to think outside the box. (Ouch, yes I just said that.)
While looking for a good shot of Big Mike's EFFEKTIV cabinets in his office on Chuck I almost overlooked the pair of EMU painted yellow.
