IKEA's first-ever store in the Philippines—along with its e-commerce shop—is set to open its doors some time in the fourth quarter of 2021. While no exact date has been set, we're already excited to shop the Swedish furniture retailer's wide range of furniture, decor, and other stylish home finds. The inside of the store has yet to be officially unveiled, but it looks like preparations are already under way because IKEA Philippines' first shipment of products just arrived at the soon-to-open store in Pasay City!
According to an announcement published on, June 7 by IKEA Philippines' official Facebook page, the first batch of the IKEA range that will be sold in Manila just made its way to the store at the SM Mall of Asia Complex. "Today, IKEA Philippines celebrates an important milestone," says the post, noting as well that the brand "can’t wait to unbox these and make them available to the many Filipinos."
Photos shared alongside the announcement show a shipment of sealed boxes being unpacked from inside a large truck and later sorted and assembled by employees. We would give anything to be able to see inside those mystery boxes!
