Village Voice's Description

After graduating from college, my mother and I embarked dutifully on a trip to New Jersey and a rite of passage: furnishing an Astoria apartment in one day at Ikea. Over the course of six short hours, I begged, resisted, became enraged, and tried to nap on a cartoony blue canvas couch. My mother a fulfilling her role with the grace and precision of a sit-com mom a exhaled loudly, rolled her eyes, and admired prices. Loading up the car was a comical, if monumentally frustrating experience, involving the acreativea and un-safe use of a moon roof. In the end, you can do quite well, as long as you are careful to mix the Ikea in with flea market finds and hand-me-downs. Avoid recreating any of the fake room scenarios at the store.

    We didn't want Red Hook to become a big-box-store playground either, but we're not gonna lie: We love the Swedish meatballs at Ikea. Admit it, you like those strange orbs blanketed in sauce, too - especially with lingonberry jam on the side.

    Get meatballs in the cafe and watch the planes landing at EWR next door.

    Best time to go is during the week. The weekends are usually a mob scene.

    Swedish Meatballs <3 plus there are a lot of great deals there! Prepare to spend a whole day there if you are planning on getting everything for your room!
