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.

After teasing us last week with news that they were in the “preliminary” planning stages of opening a city-center store in New York City, Ikea has today announced, that they will, in fact, open their first Manhattan store in spring 2019. The IKEA Planning Studio–a delivery-only store concept that focuses on “smart solutions for urban living and small spaces”–will open at 999 Third Avenue, right across the street from Bloomingdales at 59th Street and just over the Queensboro Bridge from Long Island City where Amazon is readying to bring 25,000 employees.
