My Ikea Experience

I recently got invited to a press event for the first Ikea store in Indiana…I wasn’t sure what to expect because it was my first time at a physical Ikea location (I know, I know – Aicha, are you living under a rock?). After a beautiful breakfast and some information on the new location, we were taken on a guided tour of the massive all-purpose store and let me tell you – I was in for a surprise. I was seriously blown away by the shopping experience; you can build your entire home and furnish it all solely through Ikea. How many places allow you to get everything you need at one place? I was in awe; every corner we rounded was more breathtaking and surprise-filled than the last. Did I mention it was CHEAP? IKEA is seriously (and surprisingly) affordable; the store truly allows you to have a stylish home without breaking the bank. This was great news for me considering we’re moving soon (*hint, hint *wink, wink stay tuned!).

Here are few things you can find at the IKEA Fishers store:

1. Smalland – is the play area where children can play free of charge for 60 minutes while you shop (isn’t that awesome).

2. The Ikea restaurant and Café- You know when it involves food, I’m always there. This area is perfect to rest and re-energize between shopping… Don’t forget to try their Swedish meatballs (You can thank me later).

3. Showroom – If you are not sure what you are looking for, this is the place to go. This area will have IKEA furniture put together and will help you make a decision.

4. Lastly, one thing I absolutely LOVE about IKEA is that you can put different furniture pieces together and see if they match your taste before you buy them.

The Fishers, Indiana location opens Wednesday, October 11th. Go check it out, explore the wonderland and have fun!
