Herrings or a Hotdog

AdvantagesQuality furniture, inspirational displays

Look no more an excellent store

Advantagesgood store


"...huge variety. I always visit Ikea when I require anything, the furniture is excellent, very strong wood, and with some nice designs, you’ll find something you like. We have just bought a table for £24.99 which we got at a bargain price, it looks and is excellent. I also got my computer desk from Ikea for £15.99 and it’s really good, with sliding keyboard holders, another bargain. I like the way you can pick up a tape measurer so ..." Read review
