Regarding the launch, Anje Heim, IKEA India market manager for the Karnataka market, had said,  “Ikea aims to offer home furnishing solutions that match the aspirations and dreams of the many people of Bengaluru for a better everyday life.

With a planned investment of 3,000 crore in Karnataka, IKEA is expecting to attract close to 5 million visitors this year in Bengaluru, the company said.
