Ikea Canada announced that three new Design Studio locations will open in Brampton, St. Catharines, and London following the successful opening of the first Design Studio in Oshawa on September 1st.
The Design Studio is a new concept for the Canadian market that allows customers to design and order complex home furnishing systems for the kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room by scheduling one-on-one planning sessions with a trained IKEA design expert or via a self-service planning station in a dedicated studio space.
The IKEA Design Studio is significantly smaller than a traditional IKEA store and will showcase the full IKEA range through digital solutions along with a small, curated selection of product samples on display.
IKEA products or food will not be available for immediate takeaway.
The IKEA Brampton Design Studio will open on October 14, 2021, followed by the St. Catharines and London locations in late-October/early-November.
The IKEA Design Studio’s will open at the following locations:
- IKEA Brampton Design Studio: Bramalea City Centre, 25 Peel Centre Drive, Brampton
- IKEA St. Catharines Design Studio: The Pen Centre, 221 Glendale Ave, St. Catharines
- IKEA London Design Studio: The CF Masonville Place, 1680 Richmond Street North, London
The IKEA Design Studio is a short-term concept that is open for a period of 12-18 months in convenient, local spaces, where an established Pick-up location is also in place. Purchases made at an IKEA Design Studio can be delivered directly to customers’ homes or picked up at local IKEA Pick-up Locations.
Ikea Canada is also set to open a smaller-format store in late 2021/early 2022 in the Yonge Area in the city of Toronto.
