BRING THE FAMILY

TEST-DRIVE YOUR FURNITURE

Shopping at the IKEA store should be hassle-free and hands-on. We want you to make yourself at home in our room settings, so go ahead and sit, lie down, fold out the sofa bed, turn on the lamps, feel the weight of the fabrics, pick up the dishes and open the cabinets. No one will bother you and you can always ask for help.
