When it was announced that IKEA will open in the Philippines, everyone got excited and started listing down a few must-haves that they can’t wait to take home from the store. Whether it’s a new sofa, a mirror with built-in lights, or a set of wall decals—each piece will surely pack a punch in terms of quality, function, and style—three merits that IKEA has championed for decades.

Based on a crowdsourcing we did a few months back, many of you expressed enthusiasm about the news as it will not only give you more options when it comes to decorating and styling the home, it also opens up the possibility of providing jobs for Filipinos as well. In an article published by the Manila Bulletin, Swedish Ambassador Harald Fries confirmed the opening of a store soon and mentioned the positive impact it will have on the country in terms of investments and manpower recruitment. “I won’t be surprised that once they have set their camp here, they’ll be looking for local manufacturing. I think that would be wonderful and interesting for the Philippines,” said the ambassador during an event commemorating the 70th year of the Sweden-Philippine Diplomatic Relations.
