It sells a wide range of home furnishing products. We have two ranges. Of this, there are 500 sustainable products promoting sustainable life at Home and all textiles made from 100% cotton, while all lights are 100% LED. Not only that, 20% of their products will be locally-sourced as well and will be in tandem with Indian choices.

A top official of Danube Home had said in May that they are looking to expand in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and also entering the Indian market with an investment of 300 million Dirham. It had set a goal to reach 200 million people in the next three years.

As cautiously as they may be approaching the Indian market, it is unlike the other markets they cater to.

AD got an exclusive sneak peek inside the sprawling new IKEA store in Hyderabad! Ikea is known for their trademark ready-to-assemble furniture. It said it will offer delivery and assembly service to its customers who are not familiar with the DIY (do it yourself) concept. To solve that problem, IKEA is offering assemblage solutions to buyers.

September 1, 2017: Times of India reports Ikea will invest Rs 8.1 billion ($120 million) in its Bengaluru store. The café will offer coffee, bakes, frozen yogurt and many more for purchase. The 400,000-square-foot furniture and home decor showroom will house around 7,500 products, created to integrate within an Indian home but reflective of the Swedish furniture retailer's clean, minimal sensibility and aesthetic.

The food will be affordable, for example a plate of samosas will cost Rs 10.

The restaurant area also houses a kids' play area named Småland where customers can leave their children while shopping.

In 2013, IKEA received government approval to invest Rs 10,500 crore in single-brand retail sector. So far, IKEA has spent around half the amount.

November 2, 2017: Ikea announces the purchase of 10 acres of land in Gurugram (formerly Gurgaon) in the National Capital Region outside Delhi from the Haryana Urban Development Authority, and plans to build a 400,000 square-foot store with parking for 1,000 cars and a restaurant seating 1,000 people. "As we see big opportunities in India, we believe that we will increase this investment as we continue expansion in India in future", Brodin said.

After all, IKEA has waited for more than six years to open its first store in India, and not without reason. About 1,500 indirectly engage in services etc. which makes a total of about 2,300 employees per store.

At the Hyderabad store, it now has 8 female forklift drivers and has recruited around 100 girls from the DISHA pilot project.

Customers speak to a store clerk at Ikea's new retail outlet in Hyderabad. This will be followed by Bengaluru and Gurugram in the following years. Afterwards they will look at opening in Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Surat and Kolkata, according to Antoni.

In these years, Ikea has also talked with state governments including Telangana, West Bengal, Karnataka and Maharashtra for sourcing wood for furniture.
