But merely selecting the pieces to upgrade your Zen den is just the beginning—you still have to go home and put everything together, after all.
Well, thanks to Ikea and TaskRabbit, redecorating your healthy home is about to get a whole lot easier, from start to finish.
The Swedish home-goods store just acquired the chores-outsourcing company, which is great news for your mental health, since research shows time, not money, is the key to happiness.
“We will learn from TaskRabbit’s digital expertise while also providing Ikea customers additional ways to access flexible and affordable service solutions.” The acquisition news comes on the heels of Ikea’s new app release, Ikea Place, which provides an accurate image of how everything—couches, lounge chairs, coffee tables, you name it—will look in your home without you needing to step foot in a store.
“We will be able to learn from TaskRabbit’s digital expertise while also providing Ikea customers additional ways to access flexible and affordable service solutions.” There’s no word on exactly when you’ll be able to hire a TaskRabbit through Ikea, but since the deal is expected to close in October, you’ll have a helping hand sooner than you think.
