Count down started for the grand opening of Swedish furnishing giant IKEA 1st Store today.
Here take a sneak peek of the largest store spreading over 13 acres and 1,000 crore investment venture ^_^
But, we got the chance to explore inside a week before officially although 😉 We’re so delighted with the service, ambiance and range of products ♥
The store is 4,00,000 sq.ft and has 27 sections along with IKEA Restaurant seating for 1,000 customers.
Honestly, to roam inside only we made great lunch just in order to save some energy and the mission succeeded. It took 4 hrs nearly to explore over each section and the experience is immensely spell binding.
Few products are like artifacts, we couldn’t understand whether we should buy them one day for use or to store them like a home museum 😀
The Merchant hall is completely the amalgamation of the showcase in the first floor and it is so huge, wonder where we fit in it 😀 Cheers to the team who made it up so hardly.
They’re offering 7,000+ products in various sectors including kid’s toys, kitchen accessories every tiny thing almost including Shrubs.. The best part we loved out of IKEA store 😀
Like the famous quote
It all ends where it starts
We’ll start our exploration in the store at 1st section and reach the food court in the same place funnily!!
And let us tell you that the food is amazing. Hope they’ll keep up their standards and there is some alleged talk that IKEA is presenting their products a bit cheaper than other areas (foreigners should comment this :P) Apart from the food, our journey started with the multi-colored ribbons and spoons hanging from the roof like some carnival kinda celebrations!!
We’ve witnessed some unique designs in the living room decors for the first time. They’re so damn amazing, we can’t get move our eyes away from the look 😀
and the model rooms show cased are utterly perfect.
Yeah, we heard that few of them are best inventions too. One of them is the pendant lamp by David Wahl.
Do you know why most of the houses covered with white wash? Naturally, it reflects and so that house remains cool. But, the fairness inside can makes you feel like an angel also 😀 Take a look!!
To read this mighty post only, if you give a sigh by now.. just imagine how it would be inside and the experience you are having… ECSTATIC
Fortunately, there we have furniture for each room and each genre like kids and in kids for girls and boys also with various designs and colors. Incredible !!
In fact, people who sat here are reluctant to move and move their kids either 😀
We’ve seen some kids who started playing with the abacus table there itself. Those pleasing colors are really appreciative.
It really needs some great vision to arrange things especially to match with kids taste.
Wonder how they piled up this extreme collection.
The pre-launch event isn’t a standard, nominal one.. It went outstanding and the overwhelming response gave the management a positive note for their decision too !!
If this decors made elders busy, those kid sections will make our younger generations more busy that you even need not send them for kindergartens 😛
Last but one section where we ended up our saved calories is the KITCHENNNNNNN. Nothing makes you feel so good than this for a foodie ♥ and the bathroom accessories are a few that caught our eyes.
Despite of our attempts to confuse between the sections, their laser navigation always made us keep ahead. It’s something technically smart enough to guide us in such a vast area.
They’ve provided some great inventory of artistic designs, geographical info unlike we never find in any other store. That seems to be really curious.
Yes we loved it..
So that’s our journey.. !! Hope you’ll like it also. Sooner, they’re going to establish their second store in India at Pune (next year). Don’t miss buddies.
