Ikea will open a design studio in the Georgian mall in Barrie

Ikea Canada is opening a new design studio inside the Georgian Mall in Barrie in March 2022.

The store allows customers to design and order “complex” furnishing systems for their kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room.

Individual planning sessions with a design expert will be available by appointment. Customers can also use a self-service planning station.

“Our ambition is to become more accessible to Ontario residents by bringing Ikea closer to them and offering convenient new services that meet the changing demands of our lives at home,” said Niclas Karlsson-Järnkrok, Director of Toronto area in a February 2 press release. ten.

“Inspired by the positive response we’ve received from design studio clients in other communities like Oshawa and St. Catharines, we’re excited to bring this home furnishing service to Simcoe County.”

An Ikea Design studio is “significantly” smaller than a traditional Ikea store and will not carry products or food.

The design studio will remain open for 12 to 18 months. Ikea Canada is also opening a design studio in Windsor in March 2022.
