Folks staying in the West have been curious about the Ikea hoarding that has been up in Jurong Point.
Well, it’s not a new Ikea outlet in the West — that one’s opening in Jem mid-2021. Instead, it’s the brand’s first-ever standalone planning studio in the world. And you won’t be finding Ikea’s meatballs or self-assembled furniture here. In fact, there’s nothing here that you can technically buy and bring home.
Instead, you’ll be able to go in and look at how Ikea has designed the interiors of a 65 sqm space for a family of three and get them, and their partner Livspace, to give your home the exact same look for roughly $15,000. This includes all furniture, tiling, lighting and all other fixtures you see, save for the electronics such as the fridge, oven and stove. The price also includes labour costs for painting walls and installing everything in your home.
