IKEA Is Throwing A Free, Four-Storey House Party For Londoners

The homeware hegemon is celebrating its 30th anniversary in London, and you’re invited to their Soho house party.

IKEA’s furniture may now be omnipresent in every millennial’s home, but back in 1987, they’d just opened their very first store in wonderful Warrington. To mark the occasion, they’re taking over an entire house of their own for four days and four nights of good times. (That’s October 18 – 21.) And you can go!

Each floor will be furnished in a decade’s particular style, with accoutrements to match – tuck into a prawn cocktail on the ’80s floor, bop to Britpop in the nineties, and there’s even a ‘future’ floor fresh from the IKEA lab. And throughout the venue, there’ll be cocktails and canapés – meatballs, perhaps?

By day, you can just pop in for free – a lunchtime treat for interior design nerds, IKEA superfans (you know you’re out there) and people looking to grab that ‘gram in relative peace. By night, when the stereo’s turned up and the drinks start flowing, you’ll need a ticket – but the good news is, it’s still free! You’ll just need to grab your ticket in advance.

We’ll see you there – perhaps we’ll get to drunkenly put some flatpack furniture together.
