IKEA is finally coming to Manhattan next month. The Swedish furniture store announced Tuesday it will open a new Upper East Side location on April 15. Located at 999 Third Avenue, the IKEA Planning Studio will be delivery-only, with solutions tailored for city living and small spaces. “We conducted extensive research about city living, and we believe New Yorkers will see their needs reflected this new concept,” Leontyne Greene Sykes, the CEO of IKEA Retail, said. The Planning Studio is the first of its kind in the United States.

As 6sqft previously reported, IKEA will seamlessly blend in with the Upper East Side’s 59th Street corridor, which has seen increased foot traffic since the opening of the Second Avenue Subway. Other home-decorating and improvement stores in the area include Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ethan Alan, and the Container Store.

The Planning Studio offers a more personalized shopping experience than IKEA stores in the New York market, which includes Staten Island, Brooklyn, Paramus, Elizabeth, and Long Island. Experts will help customers, on an appointment basis, design spaces and plan projects for city apartments. IKEA plans on launching an online and mobile tool for customers to schedule appointments with so-called “planning specialists.”

All purchases will be then delivered to the customer for an additional cost, with the option for assembly and installation available. The store will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
