Swedish retailer IKEA is launching an immersive week-long series of evening house parties and daytime experiences (18th – 21st October) to celebrate 30 years of the brand being in the UK.
Featuring enduring ‘design classics’, by day the house will take the form of a quintessential British living room from the last three decades and will even look forward to what the future holds. Visitors will enter a time warp into an immersive 'living home’ as IKEA looks back at landmark moments and our changing tastes.
In the 80s experience nibble on a prawn cocktail and feast your eyes on bright floral patterns, while on the 90s floor indulge in House music, Brit pop and minimalist design. For fans of the noughties, try a Juicy Couture tracksuit on for size whilst upcycling furniture and on the top floor, revellers will get the opportunity to gaze into life at home 30 years in the future.
In the daytime the house is open for all. No need to book as the doors to the past and future fly open from Midday – 6pm.
GETTING THERE: A 3-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road station and a 10 minute walk from Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus stations
OPENING TIMES: Open daily from 12pm – 6pm and 7pm – 12am from Wednesday 18th – Saturday 21st October.
FEE: Free of charge
AGE RESTRICTIONS: 18+ (for the evening events)
