I don't like Ikea. Nothing against it really, but the problem is that my gf spends countless hours in those stores browsing and touching stuff and saying "we could really use this" and "Ooooh, lovely". I usually just walk behind cursing. LOL

Shouldn't the name of the thread be ' "Architecture" of Ikea'?

Ikea is always a stressful and severely draining experience, however it's nice to know that you can get Fantasisk napkins in Malaysia.

It was probably an airfield or part of the original Newark Airport that was used until the newer one was built.

^ ^ Sorry, mate, I meant the Barcelona one.

They've also announced that they're going to open new stores in Orlando and Cincinnati.

IKEA Minneapolis:



OKAY, Just Kidding! The pic is of the new Guthrie Theatre designed by Jean Nouvel. The IKEA sign was photoshopped into the picture. (The real IKEA store is in a suburb of Minneapolis.)

But given the strong Scandinavian heritage of Minnesota, it could happen!

There's currently two Ikea stores in Sydney, with a third under construction.

One, in Rhodes, is located in a shopping centre, Rhodes Waterside. Rhodes is about halfway between the CBDs of Sydney and Parramatta.
