IKEA Canada expands its Design Studio network this month with locations in Brampton, St. Catharines, and London – delivering personalized design and planning services with IKEA experts to reach more of its customers across Ontario. The Design Studio is a new concept for the Canadian market that allows customers to design and order complex home furnishing systems for the kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room by scheduling one-on-one planning sessions with a trained IKEA design expert or via a self-service planning station in a dedicated studio space.

The first Design Studio opened in Oshawa, Ontario on September 1. The IKEA Brampton Design Studio will open on October 14, 2021, followed by the St. Catharines and London locations in late-October/early-November.

"Our ambition is to become more accessible to Ontario residents by bringing IKEA closer to them and offering new, convenient services that meet the evolving demands of our lives at home," said Toronto Area Manager Niclas Karlsson-Järnkrok. "The IKEA Design Studio is one of the many ways we're delivering local, relevant home furnishing solutions to meet these evolving needs in a meaningful way."

The IKEA Design Studio's will open at the following locations:

IKEA Brampton Design Studio: Bramalea City Centre, 25 Peel Centre Drive, Brampton, ON L6T 3R5
IKEA St. Catharines Design Studio: The Pen Centre, 221 Glendale Ave, St. Catharines, ON L2T 2K9, Canada
IKEA London Design Studio: The CF Masonville Place, 1680 Richmond Street North, London, ON N6G 3Y9
The IKEA Design Studio is significantly smaller than a traditional IKEA store and will showcase the full IKEA range through digital solutions along with a small, curated selection of product samples on display. IKEA products or food will not be available for immediate takeaway, though the IKEA Design Studio will be an affordable and accessible destination for Ontario residents to enjoy IKEA design experience and expertise closer to home.

Open for a period of 12-18 months, the IKEA Design Studio is a short-term concept connecting customers with IKEA's planning and design experts in convenient, local spaces, where an established Pick-up location is also in place. Purchases made at an IKEA Design Studio can be delivered directly to customers' homes or picked up at local IKEA Pick-up Locations.
