The predecessor of IKEA opened its doors again….

Do you want to decorate your house like a real roman family in 100 AD did? It is now possible at IXEA, the roman equivalent of the Swedish furniture giant. The store recently opened its doors in the Limburg museum in the Dutch town of Venlo. The museum sells handmade furniture modelled after pieces excavated from roman rubble.

But don’t expect IKEA prices and quality, these pieces are handmade with equal prices and superiority. But not all you can find here is a replica, they also show authentic roman artefacts found in the region. And if all the inspiration makes you hungry, after your visit to the store you can always eat some roman meatballs at their restaurant.

The store/exhibition is open from 26 march 2011 till 6 januari 2012 in Limburgs museum Venlo, Venlo
The Netherlands
