We’ve all been wishing for an IKEA store to open on our Philippine shores. But while waiting, why not try out one of their furniture pieces and see how it looks in your own home? 


This is now virtually possible with the new IKEA Place Augmented Reality Furniture App, which was launched recently, in time with the new Apple iOS update.  The IKEA Place app allows you to browse through 2,000 IKEA chairs, sofas, tables, beds, cabinets, and more and test how it looks (or fits) in your own room. It's a little bit like playing that app Design Home, only you're doing it in your own house! Here’s how it works:

Once you download the app, it will instruct you to scan your own room or the spot you want furnish. The app will digitally map objects in the room, to estimate the size of the space (so awesome).

Then browse through the app’s extensive catalogue of IKEA products. The catalog contains each of the products’ descriptions and prices. And best of all, the images of the products are 98% true to scale, meaning, that’s how big (or small) the furniture pieces would be when it’s placed in your room.

Items can be moved around or repositioned, to see how they best fit in your space. You can choose one or several products for your room. When you’ve come up with the best arrangement, you can save the imagetake a screenshot, and message it to your hubby or decorator.

The app is a great way to get decorating ideas (before heading to the nearest Asian IKEA store) and avoid problems like getting furniture that doesn’t fit in your room.

For now, the app is only for iOS or iPhone users. Download the app here. Or watch the video here:
