IKEA Canada Has Opened Its First 'Design Studio' In Ontario & Here's What To Expect
Calling all furniture lovers!
IKEA Canada launched its first design studio in Oshawa earlier this month, and now people in the GTA will have one more spot to get their Swedish furniture fix.
The design studio will allow customers to order "complex home furnishing systems for the kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room by scheduling one-on-one planning sessions with a trained IKEA design expert or via a self-service planning station in a dedicated studio space," according to a press release.
The smaller than average store is located in the Oshawa Centre at 419 King St. W., and although it won't carry the same amount of merchandise or any food, customers will be able to browse the online catalogue and view some sample products on display. Any orders made can be delivered or picked up at another IKEA pick-up location.
While this location isn't meant for any major furniture hauls, it does allow IKEA shoppers to meet with expert planners and designers to get personalized home furnishing furniture packages.
The store will be open for 12 to 18 months and, according to the press release, is the first location of several coming to the GTA.
