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

The first Design Studio opened in Oshawa on September 1. The London location is set to open in late-October/early-November.

“Our ambition is to become more accessible to Ontario residents by bringing IKEA closer to them and offering new, convenient services that meet the evolving demands of our lives at home,” says IKEA Toronto area manager, Niclas Karlsson-Järnkrok. “The IKEA Design Studio is one of the many ways we’re delivering local, relevant home furnishing solutions to meet these evolving needs in a meaningful way.”

According to IKEA, the Design Studio is being rolled out as a test concept, with commitments to keep the units open for a period of 12 to 18 months. London to get IKEA Design Studio IKEA Retail
