India got its first Ikea store in Hyderabad on August 9. The Hyderabad store, located in the heart of HITEC City area close to posh localities, is as big as 10 football grounds. 

Ikea, the Swedish furniture giant, offers everything your home needs – bedroom to dining room to kitchen to washroom.

On the first day of its launch, the store had a footfall of more than 40,000 customers, who lined up to check out the world-famous chain, creating a stampede-like situation. For its India business, Ikea has revamped itself, combining its global style with local tastes.

If you couldn’t attend the opening, we bring you a virtual walk-through.
