Throughout the long months in lockdown we’ve had a lot of ups and downs, but one thing has been a constant source of joy.
Ikea’s Instagram has been a source of inspiration and excitement for those who can’t wait to start redecorating their homes and welcoming their friends and family inside.
However, in addition to the usual praise, customers had less than complementary things to say about Ikea’s post.
Ikea’s latest baby room post sent some shoppers back in time, as they fondly recalled the years they spent in rooms filled with teddy bears and rocking chairs . One customer said: “This is my Inspo nursery, it turns out I need a trip to IKEA after all.”
Another user said: “look at the shelves with the dolls in [heart eyed emoji]. “
This was then followed by a flood of comments saying “cute”, “charming” and “beautiful”. It wasn’t just smiles and hearts, Ikea’s Instagram page has over a million followers and they all came out in force to voice their concerns.
The caption read: “We have a huge crush on” @thismummystory’s lovely nursery and her feelings for welcoming a little human.
“There are really two worlds that aren’t there … how they weren’t always cradled in our arms.”
Buyers were quick to point out that Ikea did not offer delivery for the amazing products on display.
Another said: “I wish you could deliver [crying emoji]. “
The store delivers, but costs can vary, which means you might be better off shopping in the store.
If there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s that Ikea will always have something exciting about their website that will get shoppers to spend some extra cash.
However, whether or not they will be able to get their hands on it seems like a whole other question.
