"IKEA is a beloved furniture store for a reason: the prices are unbeatable, the flat pack packaging makes bringing your items home a breeze, and the pieces aer stylish and hold up over the years. And while the brand still prioritizes in-store shopping in a world where most of us shop online, visiting is well worth it." — Bridget Mallon, Associate Editorial Director
