finally, the long-rumored IKEA Red Hook is opening next week in Brooklyn.
this is their setup in Union Square. a 20 x 20 box, set up and furnished like a studio apartment. shows shoppers EXACTLY how to lay their space out. that is one thing i LOVE about ikea, those bastards will MAXIMIZE any space presented to them, giving you a dining area, bedroom, closet, living room, and bathroom ALL in your 5 x 5 new york city apartment. for under $2000. and you’ll love it.
so now, i will no longer have to journey across international borders (new jersey, yuck!) to buy cheap european furniture. hooray.
