Ikea Setting Up Entire Apartment in Borough Hall Plaza, Brooklyn

Just in case we didn't remember that Ikea is opening in Red Hook on June 18, they sent us a little present!

Lucien just sent in a photo of this amazing sight. In his words:

"Saw workmen setting this up on my way into the office today; looks like it's going to be a full-size Ikea 'studio apartment', set up to look like it's inside a cardboard box, outside Brooklyn Borough Hall/Cadman plaza. Thought you might be curious --"

Thanks, Lucien. We can't wait to see how this will look when it's all set up.

The box includes a 20ft x 20ft studio apartment, complete with sofa bed, coffee table, rugs, lamps, curtains, pillows, media center, sideboard, bookshelves. The shipping container says "Studio apartment flat-packed for your convenience. Ready for home delivery."

Hope there's an air conditioner!

UPDATE here.

a studio apartment inside a cardboard box feels kind of funny, but it is to be used with the box off, and for me i think the shipping and handling might turn out to be more than the actual cost of the appartment.
