Where else can you go for cheap, nice looking furniture and Swedish meatballs? No where in fact. This location is huge and laid out a bit differently than other IKEA's I've been in. I get lost in it a lot. Still, lots of good stuff as

Ikea is the Bay Area's second best shop-til-you-drop store next to Target. Although Target has much more as a store in general,this Ikea has more floors than any Target,so there's plenty of stuff to do all day. They carry all the latest Modern Swedish Design assemble-it-yourself furniture,along with other home products and toys. Products come from countries such as Sweden,Finland,Germany,Holland,China,Thailand,Taiwan,and Malaysia.

Ikea is a great store:Their furniture and household goods represent the latest in Swedish design.Shoppers will also want to stop by their cafe for their Lingonberry Drink;sort of a Swedish soda from the Swedish berry called the Lingonberry. The store is fun to shop,they have nearly as many things for your home as Target.

This place rocks when it comes to organization. It has everything you want for your home from a pillow for the bedroom, to a cushion for your sofa. I like how they have displayed their model rooms. They have brilliantly fit everything in a room, even the smallest room and still make them look beautiful. Great store to pick up beautiful ideas. They have some good quality rugs at cheap prices. This is also the place to buy good quality stainless steel cutlery. They even have separate packaging of teaspoons, forks etc. which I have never found in the other stores.

My daughter and I have a blast at this store. It's a great place to find simple furniture or home decor at great prices. Lots of Euro-styled items with simple, clean lines. The quality can range from cheap to nice. These are not heirloom items, just fun and practical.

Great for decorating an apartment or dorm in college or a first apartment. Also great for decorating a teens bedroom.

Some furniture items are good enough for a family home as well. Just depends on what you want quality and style-wise.

The food section is fun. Decent coffee and some excellent/unique jellies and jams.

Parking is horrible at this location so avoid it during the holidays or weekends.

PROS: Fun!
CONS: Terrible Parking

Ikea has great prices on decent furniture. The quality of the furniture is right there in front of you to see. Everything is put together and there for you to test out. There are no surprises when you get home. The food court is also good. I have heard of some people going there solely for the food.

As a college student, I went to Ikea looking for cheap furniture. I found what I needed, but the store itself is a nightmare! I felt like I was lost in a circular maze- the signs were so confusing! The people who work there are really unfriendly and unhelpful, too. But at least I got a nice desk for college!

IKEA has a very large selection of home furnishing products for every taste especially if you are looking for the modern/simple look. Make sure to check into their restaurant after a long day of shopping.

PROS: Hugh selection, price
CONS: Hugh store, Product returns

This place has tons of furniture, accessories, and more for the home. The designs are fresh and fun, and the prices are low. The store is huge, and if you follow the main route through the store you could get pretty tired of walking.

PROS: prices
CONS: crowds

If you like modern furniture, this is the place for you. They have great design and the quality is very very good for the money. About half the furniture pieces in our house are from IKEA.

The Shop has a lot of associates @ the lobby while there's surely shortage of the trained ones @ the counter .

There is no self checkout counters /express counters for the 2-5 items .

Once the poor associate @ the counter took 20 mins to charge a gift card and had to reboot the register 2 times much to the anguish of the people in the queue a bit of training would have gone a long way .

Yet Another oddity is their monthly sale calendar thingy where they put up for items of the day that are priced only for the day .Beats me how they plan to stop people from returning the item a day before and exchanging it on the sale day with Sale Price ? The Sale periods should be extended for week instead of just a day

Ikea is a great place to go to when you need items to decorate your house. There are lamps, pillows, beds, sofas, etc. This place is fun and interesting to visit because unlike Target or WalMart, there is only one way. You travel along a path and there are items to each side so you don't have to get lost or forget where you have been to. There are a lot of sales associates around to help you look for the items you want and need. Ikea has many items you see in everyday stores all combined together. There is a mix of items from here and there.

They have lots and lots of home decor and appliances here. Their stuff is bright and unique and very attractive. Ikea was very clean, but parking was hard to find. Although i liked their stuff, their products were made of low quality material and their prices were high, even on sales items! i didnt buy anything but i sure did like them.

Ikea has become one of my favorite stores to shop at. Their prices on items for the home cannot be beat. I can get lost in that place for hours before I realized how much time has passed. They carry furniture, anything you might need for your kitchen, bed and bath decor, linens, baby items, toys, Storage units, I could go on and on. There is also an in-store restaurant that serves Swedish food and a Swedish foods market. It is basically a self-service, do-it-yourself place, but the prices make up for any inconvenience.

PROS: Great prices, huge selection
CONS: Do-it-yourself

Ikea is the best place to get college and new job furniture. The prices are extremely cheap and with great designs. You can have a colorful, fresh young room or you can have a more professional, sleek clasical look. If you can't decide they have little show rooms to display their best looks.

We used to go to Ikea in Emeryville which was an hour away and rent a truck in order to get all our purchases home. But with this new Ikea in Palo Alto we can go back and forth easily and get everything we need easily.

Of course with cheap furniture, don't expect to get high quality items. I think from our first four years we have only two items that are still in original condition. It will easily break if you move a lot. Scratches, breakage in wood (MDF wood that is) or just breaks as it is cheap. Do not buy the glasses as they were the first to break, and so easily it was almost hard to wash them.

Also this is furniture you make yourself. So it does take time and energy to have your ideal furniture. We still like it and think of our funiture as little projects.

Another hint, go through the show rooms just once a season. After you see everything you can just go to the bottom warehouse in order to get your furniture. There are often a made prototype down there and it is much less crowded as all the gawking comparison shoppers are upstairs at the display rooms.

For the first time you go to Ikea, expect to spend at least two hours just to see everything. They have more than furniture, they have home decor, kitchen appliances and just about everything you will need for your house. Again, just not the best quality.

They have so many things for the home for such a good deal. They have any thing from couches, kitchen supplies, and beds for aduls and kids. The stuff they have can be very modern looking so it that is not your taste then it may not be the place to look for furniture. The service here is good never many lines. You can always find some one to help you.

They have great designs and the best thing about this place is the SHOWROOMS that they have with already designed rooms for you to walk in and experience what it would be like to be in a nicely furnished room. This place is huge and it has 3 stories. They have furniture for your home, office, everything that you can think of and it's EXTREMELY CHEAP! There's plenty of parking, but this place gets VERY crowded.

PROS: showrooms, items, a lot of selections
CONS: too crowded
