IKEA Thailand via Facebook

Last week, the Swedish furniture giant announced the opening of its fourth store in Thailand. Posting on Facebook, IKEA said:

 

“Get ready to meet the 4th IKEA store in Thailand! on Sukhumvit Road In the heart of Bangkok at Emsphere”.

 

IKEA did not include details of an opening date or details of the concept for its new store at Emsphere, the project mall being constructed next to the Emporium shopping mall by BTS Phrom Phong.

The one thing that IKEA stores need is plentiful parking, unless they expect everyone to use their delivery service.

 

I trust the parking will be available ‘in the heart of Bangkok’.

Sofa vaguely resembles a pedestrian crosswalk.

 

Amazed no one plowed into it.

Why? Customers can shop online or visit the store using public transportation, place orders for delivery.

 

That said, Emsphere looks to be quite large, and assume it will have parking similar to the nearby EM's (porium, quartier).

Who needs IKEA?? Certainly not me. When I lived in Lanna, Northern Thailand, there were plenty of local family carpenters and furnishers, who I supported, offering quality products at affordable prices.

Even Udon Thani.  I bet it would do great.  The garbage furniture stores scattered around selling overpriced junk with the same with imitation leather.

 

Never happen

 

 

 

Most furniture is junk, only if you like teakwood you still can find some decent stuff at local chops  like in Baan Tawai. I used IKEA for our (student) condo in Bangna, perfect and better than the local brands.

Strange wanted to quote Burma Bill but get J2U?????

Evidently large portion of the population.  Seems their parking and stores are always packed.

Unfortunately not across the North of Thailand. The nearest IKEA is hundreds of miles south in Bangkok.
