There won’t be Swedish meatballs at the new IKEA opening this summer in Arlington, Virginia.

Instead, an IKEA Plan and Order store will offer interior design planning and furniture orders, according to an IKEA release. The store will be located at 1201 S. Hayes Street in Pentagon Centre.

“We are on a journey to bring the IKEA experience closer to our customers in city centers. We’re excited to introduce the IKEA Arlington Plan & order point, giving customers a more convenient way to shop our affordable home furnishing products and solutions,” IKEA U.S. CEO & Chief Sustainability Officer Javier Quiñones said.

IKEA's Plan and Order stores are dedicated to helping customers design bedrooms, kitchens and living rooms, according to an FAQ on IKEA's website.

Furniture can be ordered during a free design appointment at the store and then later delivered to a customer’s home. The items will not be available to take home the same day, the FAQ says.

Currently, the IKEA locations closest to D.C. are in College Park, Maryland, and Woodbridge, Virginia. The release said the new location "is more conveniently located to better meet the needs of Metro D.C. customers."

The store will be accessible by the Blue or Yellow Metro lines, Metrobus and car; Pentagon Centre has garage parking, and on-street parking is sometimes available.

The Arlington store will be about 5,000 square feet. It will not offer a restaurant because of its smaller size, the FAQ said.
