IKEA Canada launched its first design studio in Oshawa on Wednesday, offering personalized design and planning services with IKEA experts to local customers.

The Design Studio is a new concept for the Canadian market that allows clients to design and order complex furnishing systems for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room by scheduling individual planning sessions with an expert in qualified IKEA design or via a self-service planning station in a dedicated studio space.

“Our ambition is to become more accessible to residents of the GTA by bringing IKEA closer to them and offering them new, practical services that meet their growing needs,” said Niclas Karlsson-Järnkrok, Toronto Regional Manager. “The IKEA Design Studio is one of the many ways we allow our customers to seamlessly interact with IKEA, especially as we continue to evolve the spaces in our homes to meet the changing demands of our home life. “

Located inside central Oshawa at 419 King Street West, the IKEA design studio is significantly smaller than a traditional IKEA store and will showcase the full IKEA line through digital solutions as well as a small selection of samples of products on display. IKEA products (or their popular Swedish meatballs) won’t be available to take out immediately.

Purchases made at an IKEA design studio can be delivered directly to customers’ homes or picked up from local IKEA pick-up points, including 980 Thornton Road S, Unit # 4 in Oshawa.

Open for a period of 12-18 months, the IKEA Design Studio is a short-term concept connecting customers with planning and design experts from IKEA in convenient local spaces, where an established pickup location is also in place.

The IKEA Design Studio in Oshawa Center is the first of several planned locations in the Greater Toronto Area.
