The Sims 2 IKEA Stuff


Ah, the union of two big loves of mine: IKEA and The Sims 2. Perfection.

I almost jumped up and down in my seat when I saw the announcement. Okay, I did jump up and down. The excitement cannot be contained! More furniture! More decor! More style and sophistication for my virtual dollhouse!

IKEA designs for me are simple but sophisticated. I love their smooth, clean lines. I’m still fantasizing about a red loveseat I saw in their 1999 catalog. *sigh* I love how cozy their furniture are and how their trinkets and accessories can range from the classic to the whimsical. I can spend hours in IKEA. Too bad there’s no IKEA here in the Philippines. But hmmm, maybe that’s not a bad idea after all. I’m sure I’ll spend a good chunk of my salary on IKEA stuff. Red loveseat or groceries for the month? Red loveseat! πŸ˜€ Haha, I kid, I kid. Or not.

And The Sims 2… after many years, I still cannot shake off my addiction. And this new stuff pack is exactly why. EA Games releases Stuff packs and Expansion packs every year. Just when I think I’m cutting my ties with the video game, a new release lures me back. Gah. Like this IKEA Stuff pack.

Some game sites say it’ll be released by the end of June. You can pre-order at The Sims 2 site. And oooh, check out the IKEA Stuff page to see the new furniture designs and styles here: IKEA Home Stuff.

And. I. cannot. wait.

P.S. While we’re at it, there’s talk of an Expansion Pack called The Sims 2: Apartment Life due to come out in September. *falls off seat* [source]

    I used to play SIMS on my cellphone, but it was slowing it down immensely so I had to uninstall.
    I love IKEA too! Hubby hates it when I go though coz he knows I won’t leave the store without buying anything…something! Hahahaha!

    On your cellphone? That sounds awesome! I can imagine the memory it would take up though!

    Hi Toni, This should be such a cool game! I’ve always loved Sims! Pero minsan I just end up decorating and buying stuff for my “house” rather than playing it…Hehehehe

    That’s what my sister requests from me sometimes! She’s an avid player too, but doesn’t like creating homes. So I ask her what style of home she wants, what theme she likes, and then I set up her Sims’ homes for her. I find it therapeutic. Haha.

    I love Ikea, used to go there often when we were still living in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, our house then were full of Ikea stuff, nope, I was not intending for our house then to look like their showroom, just love their stuff… that’s all. Too bad and it’s so sad that there’s no Ikea here in Dubai either, so maybe I’ll just settle for Sims2 Ikea to ease my sadness. On the other hand, maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that there’s no Ikea here, otherwise my loyal patronage to their store might end up putting holes on my pocket (again), and blurt out…”waaaah, wala na akong pera, napunta na lahat sa Ikea!” =)

    I wouldn’t mind making my home look like an Ikea showroom hahahaha!

    Halatang mahilig ang SIMs sa Swedish brands… first they had an H&M fashion pack, now they have an IKEA pack :)

    H&M din ba Swedish!? πŸ˜€ Galing! Now that you mention it, mahilig nga. Ano pa ba popular Swedish brands? Let’s watch out for it!

    Hmm, there’s Volvo (The SIMs Drive Around Expansion Pack), Ericsson and Electrolux (Home and Techy Gadgets Expansion Pack), and… Absolut Vodka (The SIMs Lush Life Expansion Pack) πŸ˜€

    Weeee! I love those ideas Christianne!!! Ooh wouldn’t it be nice if the Sims vacuumed their house? Hehehe.
