Best news of the day for me comes via Jason Kottke: IKEA products are now available on and directly from Amazon. This means that some things are also available for Amazon Prime shipping to get your things within two days.
I thought maybe it would be the smaller household items, but there are some furniture items available too. Including my coffee table, and my daughter’s arm chair. You can also buy these fun kids’ plates there too. If you’re in the States, you can even buy the Swedish meatball sauce they use in the store. This is likely the equivalent of the McDonald’s sauces being available in Canada.
It appears their inventory is rather limited right now, but I’m looking forward to buying some items from IKEA without having to travel to Vancouver and walk through the store spending extra money I didn’t plan on.
