IKEA in South Africa

IKea bookshelfIKEA is a do-it-yourself furniture range that has taken the world by storm. Any young South Africans who have lived overseas are familiar with the brand and always feel pained upon returning to South Africa when their love for splashing out on IKEA on a Saturday morning is stumped. It’s just the way life goes, it’s just one of those things – until now.

[UPDATE 14/06/2017: Apologies for the interrupted post, but it has been brought to my attention that Nevada Furniture owes many customers money/items and have now disappeared. I was recently e-mailed by a lady named, “Michelle Smith” and asked to update this post. She said they are currently updating the site. Unfortunately, she has not responded to any further e-mails of mine so I will have to advise that you do not use this service until further notice. Should I receive any further information, I will be sure to relay it here.]

I was very surprised to see a website pop up on Facebook over the weekend offering the service of shipping IKEA to South Africa. Nevada Furniture’s front page states,

“Nevada Furniture imports brand new Ikea products directly to South Africa. We do this by collecting orders from customers, after which we import the products directly to South Africa once a month by the container load. We are in no way affiliated with Ikea, we simply shop on your behalf and import the products to South Africa. By combining orders from various customers we are capable of doing this in an affordable, secure and efficient manner.”

I literally didn’t think I could say it any better myself! This is such great news as IKEA is “PIMP!” as we like to say. Check out the Nevada Furniture website and get shopping. Whoohoo! Affordable, fun, modern furniture is at our finger tips once again!

    Nevada Furniture… STAY AWAY!!! I bought from them a few years back when they were still in Cape Town, twice. Then placed a custom order and had excuse after excuse of customs issues and eventually the stopped replying to my mails, but would reply to mails from my friends, and now their website is “unavailable”…

    It’s an old thread which I just came across when hoping to find IKEA in SA…
    Came back from IKEA in Shanghai this morning and after being at one in Germany last year I have to admit; they are the bee’s knees…
    loooove their stuff! Have you pushed Nevada’s button on this yet?
    Oh, by the way; how on earth can you be bored in CT?? ?

    • I have NOT gone the Nevada route! I kept finding local alternatives that would JUST beat them on the price mark. Sometimes you can get a couple of real winners in Cape Town! You’re very lucky to have spent so much time in real Ikeas though! I’d still love to visit 😀
