As Brooklynites, we were (like everyone else) beyond happy to hear that Brooklyn's Red Hook Section would be home to NYC's NEW Ikea store!!

we were invited to rsvp for IKEA's PRESS EVENT
where they were showing new products and collections and unveiling the 2009 catalog
of course we rsvp'd to superstar celebrity maker & PR GURU Abe Gurko's ABE NYC

we had a great time, and PLEASE head to and sign up to receive the new catalog when it becomes available

(or we'll send you one of really...just kidding...we need out catalogs..LOL)

The event was held off-site,
and precise & my sister Althea took the ultra cool "Bicy taxi"
from the store to the event

these guys were placed at different corners in the area of the store..

Picking up our passes from the front

My Sister Althea taking advantage of the "Ikea" Cosmos..and great service staff

one of the new and fabulous items set for 2009...hey...the chair, buddy!!

The AMAZING PAX modular closet system..this thing is CRAZY!!
great for those NYC Fashionistas..who don't have nearly enough closet space

The presenters of the "PAX System" sold us immediately!!

Some of the Ikea "geek" staff...(they all had those woody allen style glasses on ...)

The items Ikea has coming are great looking, functional, sleek and sexy

Speaking of sleek & Sexy...LOL

The hour dourves were both delicious and appetizing to the eye!!

The Press swarmed around like bees sopping up presentations of all the new items...

Trust me...these guys were busy ALL night..

on the way out Ikea's gift was a specially "prescribed" memory foam and down pillow
from the sleep doctor

Precise collecting her prescribed pillow

The Event staff was helpful and courteous

we had a great time, and we will soon be swapping out EVERYTHING in our house for IKEA stuff...LOL
