UPDATE: Going back to school with Veronica Mars

A year ago today I published this post for Veronica Mars which included this desk:

I knew it to be IKEA but I just couldn't find the name. Someone in the comments tried help but it was the wrong lead. Then last night, purely by happenstance, I found it!!

It is a MOTIV

Now, if anyone happens to have one and is looking to sell it...

Dorm Room Furniture

If you recently got an IKEA flyer in the mail promoting back to college shopping you are not alone. Today I ventured to my local IKEA and it turned out to be an ill-advised decision. A combination of college move-ins, holiday weekend and rainy weather resulted in a traffic jam of epic proportions. As I sat in traffic I began to think about the movies and television shows which take advantage of the affordable and versatile IKEA catalog to dress their fictional dorms.

We saw a snippet of this in a post from 2012. In the 3rd season of Veronica Mars our favorite characters find themselves solving crimes (and attending classes) at Hearst College.

Most of the rooms seen in season 3 of Veronica Mars are furnished with the same basics. There is a LACK wall shelf unit hung horizontally, a MIKAEL desk (bottom only) and MIKAEL drawer unit.

It is hard to get a screencap of it but the rooms have MALM single beds in birch.

Accenting the wall behind Mac's bed are two ANNO VACKER (discontinued) curtain panels on what is possible a KVARTAL system.

The RA's room has the MIKAEL desk and drawer unit.

But, since the room is a bigger single it also has GORM shelving units, GRUNDTAL spice rack, and large BURKEN jars on the counter and GORM unit.

After the jump prepare to get pitch slapped!
