So, back from my first experience at an Ikea store ever. Seen it in other countries but never had the need nor passion to get into one till date.

The store was huge and i mean HUGE, I spent close to 4.5 hours but all I could cover was around half the store. Their offerings are amazing and good looking but the target customer base seems to be tricky. For someone like me who already lives in a decently furnished home it’s hard to get some more furniture to cater to my needs. Anyways, I might not be right customer at this point of time.

Coming to the furniture itself, the quality is decent but not the best of the builds. For someone who is used to traditional carpenter built furniture the offerings at Ikea are not as sturdy as the ones we get made in general but the style factor is much better with the furniture looking trendy and stylish. Pricing is great too, it’s neither really cheap nor expensive. I think they nailed it when it comes to the pricing. It’s still expensive than the ones we get in local market small stores but if someone is keen on good looking furniture Ikea sells good furniture and at a great price.

Purchased some chairs, small stools and general home accessories for home at great prices. Will be back in the store again when I have a real need for large furniture.

I never did, I have seen them in other countries from outside while passing by the store but never ever got into one.

Got the invite from some event they hosted on their Facebook india page few months ago.

Nope, no such launch offers I suppose. Very few items have the price marked in yellow, may be these are launch offers. Not sure though.
