Your First Look Inside IKEA Miami!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We checked out the new IKEA Miami store yesterday, and it's MASSIVE. There are three floors of small space furniture goodness to greet you, each of its 44 rooms are arranged into family settings, from the "single dad with kids" to the "bachelor in a beach house." At 600 seats, this IKEA boasts the largest restaurant of them all, and they're currently working on catering to local tastes, so expect to see empanadas alongside Swedish meatballs. We'd like to point out the party and paper supply section, because it's just that cute! You'll find paper cups, plates, lanterns, notebooks and sticky pads, not to mention everything you'll need to giftwrap that Billy Bookshelf you so want to give your dad for Christmas. Also of note, this IKEA will be carrying patio supplies throughout the entire year, which is uncommon in most IKEA stores. Click through to join us on our tour, and let us know what you think about it in the comments.

Opening Details
Doors officially open on August 27 at 9am, but you can begin to line up as early as 9am on August 25. The first 39 guests in line will receive a free three-seat sofa, and the first 100 after that will receive a free armchair. If you're one of the first 100 kids, you'll take home a FAMING heart toy. But the swag doesn't end there. The first 39 adults on Thursday receive a free queen sized mattress, and the next 100 adults will receive free home delivery that day. But the best, THE BEST, prize of them all is a pass for a year's worth of free meatballs, which will go to the first 39 guests on Friday, followed by a Swedish food shopping spree, which will go towards the next 100 adults that day. This is IKEA MADNESS.
