IKEA Festival Brings Us Speed ​​Dating About Interior Design


Forget everything you thought about the concept of speed dating. Because in one quick announcement, IKEA gave the term a whole new meaning – the one I am extremely interested in knowing more.

The IKEA Festival will take place from From August 26 to September 10 and as part of the whole celebration, the stores will be hosting free workshops, Swedish food tastings, expert talks and interior design speed dating sessions (!) for all design enthusiasts who want to to profit from.

The theme of the festival, which takes place both online and in IRL, is “From dream to action”, and according to IKEA, it “aims to inspire everyone to unleash their passions, creativity and life potential. at home”.

Sydney has been chosen as the host city, along with New York, Stockholm, Tokyo and Paris, so on September 3 a series of conferences and events will be broadcast live from the Tempe site. There will, however, be chances to experience design speed dating (and other events) at stores across Australia – in case you were wondering.

Here are some of the most interesting options on offer.
