Must-see: Top 10 IKEA products every Cebuano should explore

The recent expansion of IKEA’s online store in the Philippines, especially in Cebu (Mandaue City is considered the country’s furniture capital), is like welcoming an eager new friend into your home, one brimming with fresh ideas for a stylish makeover.

As Cebuanos gained greater access to IKEA’s myriad of stylish, functional and affordable home furnishings, SunStar Lifestyle couldn’t resist jumping into the fray.

We’ve whipped up our very own top-10 IKEA must-haves that are not just functional, but are sure to tickle the Cebuano fancy!

Poäng Chair

Perfect for “chikka” sessions or simply “chill lang.” Its name might sound like a sound effect from a Pinoy action movie, but this chair is all about comfort after a long day of “suroy-suroy.”

Bengta Black-out Curtain

These aren’t just curtains; they’re your defense against that 7 a.m. sun blasting through your window. Also a great backdrop for those Instagram selfies.

Billy Bookcase

For every Cebuano who’s been collecting novels, cookbooks, or simply needs a place to show off those “pasalubong” items from travels abroad. Let’s face it, it’s also a great hiding spot for those chicharon packs.

As we look to the future, IKEA’s expansion in Cebu is more than just a business move. It’s a cultural integration, a blend of global and local, of modernity and tradition. It respects Cebu’s status as the furniture capital of the Philippines while introducing new trends and sustainable practices. This expansion is not just about furniture; it’s about shaping the future of living spaces in Cebu and beyond.

For Cebuanos eager to embrace this new era of home furnishing, visit Ikea’s website or mobile app. The digital doors are open, inviting Cebu, and the rest of the Philippines, to a world where style, sustainability, and convenience converge.

Additionally, the truck delivery service starts at P1,690 for Cebu City, Consolacion, Liloan, Compostela, Danao City, Mandaue City, Lapu Lapu City, Cordova, Naga City, Talisay City and Minglanilla; and P1,890 for San Fernando, Carcar City, Toledo City and Balamban.

The Click & Collect service, with a flat-rate fee of P590, offers an alternative for those who prefer to pick up their online orders at their convenience at the new collection point in J. De Veyra St, Cebu City, starting Feb. 1, 2024. Happy shopping!
