The IKEA Planning Studio in Kuwait is located in the new extension of 360 Mall, The Sheikh Jaber Al Abdullah Al Jaber Al Sabah International Tennis Court complex.

The Design Philosophy for this boutique type outlet for living room furniture and accessories is to offer more personal and direct planning services to customers. It also marks the beginning of the ongoing transformation of IKEA to bring the brand into the heart of urban areas.

The Design Lounge, as a core of the outlet, is a planning area where specialists assist customers in the design of their living rooms. Items can be purchased from the display area, but all purchases made here are conveniently delivered. It is the latest example of how IKEA is reaching customers in new ways that are more accessible and personalized.

The 3000 m2 outlet comprises of:

  • Showroom
  • Cafe
  • Coworkers area
  • Warehouse

Gulf Consult provided Design and Supervision services for the new location, and coordinated the Interior Design work with IKEA’s marketing team to ensure it met their corporate branding standards.
