Where Can I Buy Furniture for My Midtown Atlanta Condo | IKEA
Congratulations! You’ve closed on your new Midtown Atlanta condo, and you are moving in. As you moved out of that old rental apartment, you started to toss! I mean, I’ve got a new place! I want NEW stuff! I want it to be stylish and cool and you know….
Which probably means that old couch and maybe a recliner…they did not make the cut for the moving van! So now the question is, Where Can I Buy Furniture for My Midtown Atlanta Condo? We will look at numerous options in the Midtown area…and beyond. But let’s start with a close favorite….IKEA! The Atlanta IKEA store is located alongside Atlantic Station off of 17th Street!
The IKEA concept comes from the idea of providing home furnishings that are affordable. If you’ve ever purchased anything at IKEA, you know the one way the keep costs down is to have you assemble the furniture yourself. Hence, you will see much of the items in big flat boxes. If the assembly gig is not for you, never fear. They now even have a service that will come and do the work at your condo for you!
I’m not going to dish them, but I have purchased some items that did not hold up well, and others that are outstanding. My office desks/tables are all from IKEA! I once managed a corporate condo that was almost entirely furnished from IKEA…as you can see, it looked pretty nice!
But you can truly furnish your entire condo from this store! From silverware in the kitchen to towels in the bathroom, you can get most everything you need here. I’ve never purchased a bed from here, so I can’t speak for them. One thing I like about most of their furniture is its clean, simple lines. That big pillow sofa that your parents gave you may have fit in the apartment, but may not work well in your condo space. The furniture here is just designed to work well in the kind of space you get in a Midtown Atlanta condo!
If you are going to visit IKEA, here is the number one piece of advice I can give you….
DO NOT GO TO THE STORE ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY. EVER!
IKEA stores are known to draw from a wide geographic area. Look at this map of where stores are in relation to Atlanta…
The Atlanta store draws from Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee! So it’s a weekend destination! The store will be crowed, the parking lot packed, and the lines…..UGH!
You live locally, so take advantage of evening visits! Walk the store, get your ideas and either buy them then, or make a return visit, but just NOT on Saturday or Sunday. If you have a weekday off, stop by the IKEA restaurant for a breakfast special to fuel you for the store.
Why? If you’ve never been to an IKEA, they are HUGE! But the store is well laid out with displays that lead you through all the parts of the home. Everything is labeled, and you find most of it in the IKEA Marketplace, on the lower level. Furniture is found in the self-service area past the Marketplace and before you check out.
IKEA Atlanta! A perfect answer to the question, Where Can I Buy Furniture for My Midtown Atlanta Condo?
