This week Marlane and I went on a tidy trip to the brand new, largest-in-the-country, wonderous Ikea in Burbank. Spoiler alert, we had all of the fun and LOVED it there.
We ooh'd and ahh'd, opened every single cabinet and drawer to marvel at the organizational tools hidden inside, probably annoyed a few people, and sang the "Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?!" refrain from The Little Mermaid more than once. I for sure called it the largest Ikea in the world all day (it's not). We also ate at the cafe which is expansive and carries lots of tasty treats, and boasts a gorgeous view of Griffith Park! (And Marlane ate pie there on Pi day. Totally unintentionally. That made my nerd heart happy.)
This trip was for research; we wanted to familiarize ourselves with all of the great storage & organization solutions that Ikea has to offer, just in case a client does end up needing something that they don't already have. BUT it was also of course a trip for us to call dibs on all of our favorite rooms OF WHICH THERE ARE SO MANY! This Ikea features a ton of great decorated rooms to explore. They also featured a couple of fully furnished tiny home, micro apartment, and bachelor rooms, which I love, as a tiny house is my dream house!
I think the thing that stood out to me the most about this location is the gigantic warehouse. I'm fairly confident that if there is ANYTHING you saw on any display floor, you can pick up one or seventeen at that location. I doubt there is anything that they would ever have to order from another location for you.
But wait! There's more! There's a video! Because OF COURSE WE MADE A VIDEO! Check it out after the JUMP!
Well there you have it. Ikea is Disneyland. No, Ikea did not sponsor this post. Yes, we just love it. If you're in the area, this location is worth a visit!
Thanks for stopping by! Keep tidying, find joy, and have a great weekend!
PS, I couldn't find an N64. The hunt continues.
