Aside from the amazing colossal structures located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur where all the designer labels can be found, this author took a 30-45 trip out of the city to visit the biggest Home furnishing store in Asia-IKEA. 
Located at Mutiara Damansara, the store is linked by other renowned commercial centers like Ikano Power Center and The Curve which is one of this affluent and booming town's stellar attraction.
