  1. The IKEA store in Sydney has set up "Manland", a daycare for men who are fed up of shopping with their partner. They can play the xbox, eat hot dogs and watch sports, while the women go shopping. Why couldn't they continue this? Everyone wins in the end.

    Ikea Sydney

    Hi, Just wondering how Ikea Sydney compares to Ikea in London in terms of value for money, range of products etc? Is it worth a visit when we are setting up? Thanks!

    Ikea Store Springvale

    The new Ikea store is now open and I visited today, its a very easy commute for anyone living on the beach side or on the Mornington Peninsula. Not too bad for other areas as well. From the Peninsula, Frankston, Carrum etc take the Frankston Freeway to Springvale Road then Westall Road and the entrance is just before the Princes Highway on Westall Road. Lots of parking, huge store, great cafe area, child friendly areas etc. Back to the good old days before they closed the big one in Moorabbin. Harvey Norman, JB Hi Fi, Freedom and other stores will be opening there soon, one stop shop homemaker centre. Lot of people there today because just opened but it was ok and easy to get in and out.

    Gobsmacked - Ikea in Australia

    Ikea fan here - looking at whether worth buying some furniture here in UK and shipping to Australia and almost collapsed when I saw how expensive Ikea is in Australia! Our chest of drawers cost us £75 (and indeed only now costs £76.60) but in Australia the same chest of drawers costs $299! Ditto wardrobe at £330 in UK, $1,199 in Australia. Presumably it would be worth stocking up on some furniture here? Does anyone have any advice? I realise that Ikea are shipping alllllll the way to Oz so there may be some disrepancy in price (but not that much!!). Obviously Ikea is cheaper than chips in the UK in terms of furniture - we don't have a lot of money, so would be grateful if someone could advice if they too are the cheaper option in Australia. If so, I'm off to buy some furniture here, me thinks!
  5. This kinda annoys me. The ikea beds in oz are a whole 7cm narrower than the ikea uk bed (mattress is 160cm, whereas in oz..its 153). Now having slept on a 160 peacefully without divorce for a long while..i am not really ready to give up 7cm frankly. Apart from shipping an ikea bed from the uk, is there any other ways to get european bed sizes in oz? I see there are some "continental" type bed shops around perth but it seems the beds cost a small fortune. Its a bit of a disappointment really. i like my bed width! (the 180cm is too big for anyone who suggests a super what not)

    Ikea furniture can we take it?

    Can anyone let me know whether you can ship Ikea furniture. I have some untreated pine cupboards that I want to take. I also have a treated birch veneer bed that I want to take. I have read somewhere that you can't take certain types of wood, so would be interested to hear from anyone that may have shipped similar items. Thank you :jiggy:Bushbaby
