As reported by radio RÁS 2, former president of Iceland Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson and his wife Dorrit Moussaieff were shopping for furniture in IKEA recently. They moved out of the presidential residence last month to make room for President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson and his family. 

According to reporter Freyr Gígja Gunnarsson who saw the former presidential couple at IKEA he explains that they spent a long time in the famous Swedish furniture store which is located in the outskirts of Reykjavik. "The couple have obviously moved from Bessastaðir and have acquired a new home in Mosfellsbær."
