    What people like about IKEA

    When news about IKEA's opening in the Philippines, many people were excited. Finally, they could have their dream IKEA furniture in their home. But why do people love IKEA furniture? Here are possible reasons why:

    1. IKEA costs less

    IKEA furniture is shipped unassembled, which means that the overall cost of the product is greatly reduced. For people who are transporting the items themselves, it makes the furniture easy to carry around especially when commuting because it is packed smaller. , there is something about assembling items that excite a lot of people, so that's another reason to love IKEA.

    2. The items are designed for practicality

    IKEA's products combine form, function, quality, and sustainability. As such, the products are not just for aesthetic purposes or space fillers; they are there because they have a function to fulfill. What's more, there is a specific IKEA product for every home size, location, finish, or design.

    3. IKEA promotes sustainability and workplace equality

    One of IKEA's mission is to reduce the impact on the environment of its products and operations. IKEA also aims to inspire its customers to make better choices in favor of the environment. IKEA is also promoting equal opportunities both in its offices and all other areas where it operates.

    IKEA's worldwide presence

    In the Asia Pacific Region, IKEA has a presence in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.

    Globally, IKEA is well-known for its straightforward and well-built design, and functionality of its products.

    IKEA also prides itself by putting consumers first when they develop concepts. Designers are continuously finding many different ways to improve the lives of consumers. 

    That includes coming up with concepts that balance form, function, and ease-on-the-pocket. In the end, IKEA focuses on what is important and not about the fuss.

    1. The big question is...will they serve Swedish meatballs? :)

      1. No mention about it but i hope they do. :)

    2. They're finally making use of the idle land in the Fairview area!

      1. Yup. It's just near our house so that's great news.

    3. As for me, I'll be waiting for the food area - if they have it, though.

      1. Looks like they're focusing on selling furniture for now.

    4. That's my favorite thing on their menu.

      1. I'm hoping, too. But there's no mention of it in initial reports. Maybe when they have fully established their furniture line, which, of course, would not be long. They already have a good fan base in the Philippines, I believe.
