Ok, so yesterday I said that I missed the cute little shops with awesome interior decors in Miami. And I don’t know for sure if they are located within downtown Miami, because outside downtown there is no small shop with interior appealing to my eye. But I can’t argue that I visited the brand new awesome IKEA in Miami. I’m not very happy about the shipping rate to the freight forwarder (starting at $240,-). And the most annoying part of it all is that the new IKEA is like 5 minutes from the freight forwarder. Next time we are renting a huge car again and be ready on time to get the stuff to the freight forwarder ourselves. IKEA doesn’t need no more introduction. I want to move in. I can fall in love, but it breaks my heart every time when I realize how much I have to pay to send it all to Curacao. But what the heck, the furniture is awesome and we need it, lets buy it. So lets take a paper ruler and small pencil and get on with the show.
I really loved the entrance from the parking lot below to the first floor entrance of the store. I loved the lamps, the wall-sticker saying HEJ and the overall simplicity.
Always amazed about the set-ups of all the spaces. It must be a hell of a job to put this store together. Being a designer for IKEA would be a dream job for me. Talking about being a designer for IKEA, did you check out the competition of the IKEA Amsterdam? Check out at their pinterest board. To get an idea, look how I did my board.
Meanwhile, lets enjoy some of the well put together spaces in this new IKEA Miami.
IKEA also has got a whole new section with paper goods, like notebooks, gift wrapping paper, gift bags etc. It’s stationary heaven. This store had a small section. But interesting nevertheless.
So what do you love about IKEA? How many times have you been to IKEA and tried to buy everything in the store?
