Did you know that by changing textile colours, accessories, and lighting, you can freshen up a room and transform it for the season; or that you can add an element of surprise and a touch of whimsy to make a perfectly decorated room even more interesting?

These are just some of the magical moments that will greet visitors to the IKEA store at Dubai Festival City when the store's in-house interior designers and communication consultants from the world's favourite furniture and furnishing company tell you how you can change the look of your room in 30 minutes with a choice of textiles without creating a dent in your pocket.

This is the first time such an activity for families, interior design buffs and even children is being conducted by IKEA only at Dubai Festival City store. IKEA designers will help you understand why the Swedish lifestyle giant has made itself an essential part of everyone's lifestyle, put fashion in the product and made good Scandinavian design accessible to lots of people.

IKEA has some amazing choices right now in terms of colour, variation and pattern and these are what will be demonstrated every afternoon from 2pm to 2.30pm on Mondays, to Thursdays every week for six weeks beginning April 29.

The design schedule is as follows: Week One – Living Room; Week Two – Dining Room; Week Three – Bedroom; Week Four – Living Room; Week Five – Bedroom; Week Six - Living Room.

The IKEA store will also be offering a reduced stitching service charge – up to 50% – on stitching services for IKEA textiles. Also, the stitching time will be reduced from 4 days to 2 days.

The store also has lined up a Kids Fabric Day activity every Fridays and Saturdays from 2pm to 6pm. Small pieces of colourful fabric will be given to children who will glue the fabric samples on other plain fabric samples to create a pattern. They will also be given crayon and paint to draw on the fabric. Importantly, the children creations will be framed and gifted to the children, courtesy IKEA.
