Sweet hygge: IKEA in Iloilo

Heads up, Ikea is now in our area!

The moment I have been waiting has arrived! IKEA Philippines which opened it’s biggest global store in Pasay City, Manila back in 2021 now ships nationwide. That means for folks like us who live outside of metropolitan Manila, we can now access affordable and well-designed products that can help build and improve our living spaces minus the hassle of travelling to Manila to visit the physical store. Minus the legendary Manila traffic, the massive physical store in MOA complex is actually an amazing retail wonderland to experience the full Ikea lifestyle--showrooms, restaurant, cafe and bistro plus the mind boggling assortment of products and design solutions.  Given that I live in Iloilo and it's impossible to bring home wide and bulky Ikea products without breaking the bank, Ikea's nationwide delivery is really the best news of the year. Depending on the size and weight of the product you're ordering, the shipping fee is still cheaper than a plane trip to Manila. The shipping rates are sensible and affordable given the super fast delivery!

Swedish hygge at IKEA store in Manila

The first two things I ordered online from the home office category are an Elloven computer monitor stand for my home office  and a Pluttis wallclock for the work office. Both have clean, stylish design and are highly functional. I especially love the bamboo drawer of the monitor stand that keeps my desk clean and organized. The drawer can store peripherals like mousepad, mouse and a bluetooth keyboard plus other essential school supplies like pens, notepads and a stapler set. With the help of Ikea I look forward to tidying up all the disorganized places in the house. I guess that's a goal I look forward to in 2024!

I ordered on a Friday and the items arrived 3 days after. Not bad huh?
