to be honest with you, the furniture is cute. but it's really the food that gets me going when it comes to ikea. (austinchronicle.com)new york - nyc blaynistas please, please, PLEASE get into this bit of news: ikea, the swedish furniture store known for modern and CHEAP pieces, is opening a store in new york city. did you catch that? ikea is opening a store in new york city. this is major because for some odd reason (at least in the u.s and u.k) ikea loves to place its stores on the outskirts of the metropolis. but thats about to change, at least in the big apple. on june 18th, they will debut a 346,000 square foot store in the red hook area of brooklyn. it will have over 50 different room displays and a 450 seat restaurant overlooking the statue of liberty.
