Each customer is strictly limited to two pieces per Markerad product and four dining chairs on a first-come-first-served basis, while stocks last.For more information, see Ikea’s website.READ MORE:Is Singapore really the 13th most fashionable country in the world?The noise cancelling earphones and headphones you need to bring you into 2020
