Chinese Ikea Customers Are Taking Naps In The Display Beds

Ikea Naps
Free Naps!

In China, Ikea has become a hotspot for quality napping. People chill out in the store’s beds and couches, often shoeless, sleeping under the covers or browsing the internet. Store employees don’t seem to be complaining about it and even change the sheets every day, so people come back on the regular as if it were their favorite bar. Most Ikea nappers pay a visit on their lunch break from work, but others leave their nearby houses to relax at the store. I can’t fathom how the endless maze that is that furniture warehouse could be more relaxing than my own home. It sounds like Chinese Ikea stores are just one giant public hangout space, which makes for a much more fun visit than the stress vacuum that accompanies a trek to a US location. I think I’m going to give a nap a try next time I visit the store, just to see what would happen. [Refinery 29]

Navigating your way through IKEA is always an overwhelming experience. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to narrow down the vast selection of products to fit your personal tastes, without even setting foot in the store? Thanks to IKEA Singapore, there is! The company just unveiled a fun Facebook app called The IKEA Zodiac. You type in your birth date and get specific furniture recommendations based on your Chinese Zodiac sign. I’m an Ox, so the app recommended I buy some organizers to control clutter and avoid “ feeling like a bull in china shop in your own home.” Sounds good to me. All in all, it’s a fun way to wade through IKEA’s endless inventory and maybe — maybe — find something you love. [Design Taxi]

Neighbors Mistake IKEA Furniture Assembly For Domestic Dispute, Call Police

The promise of IKEA is affordable furniture that looks expensive. But those of us who have been lured in by the dream of the sparking showroom know the truth: the money you save is not worth the hours of your life lost, trying to assemble those dastardly beds/coffee tables/dressers. One tiny wrench to build an entire bookcase? It’s enough to turn you into a blathering banshee…or have the cops called to your place. Such was the case for a Swedish family who were up until the wee hours of the morning trying to put together some new furniture from IKEA. Keep reading »

IKEA is one of my favorite places in this world. Everything is colorful and beautiful, the prices are good, and HELLO,  Swedish meatballs. However, if you don’t feel quite so strongly about IKEA and would rather avoid a few extra trips to their labyrinthine stores, this new app may be just what you have been waiting for. It’s an augmented reality app that allows you to use your phone to picture IKEA’s furniture in your home. Instead of focusing on the width and length of your purchases, you can get a visual representation of how it will actually look. The furniture appears in 3D over your room so that you can see if the couch is too big or even if the color isn’t quite right. The future is here, people! Or, as IKEA would say, schmergenflergenblerg. [CNBC] [Image via IKEA]

The heart wants what it wants, and in the case of a mysterious monkey that popped up in a Toronto Ikea parking lot, the heart apparently wanted Swedish meatballs and cheaply made TV consoles. The Rhesus Macaque monkey was apparently in a crate in a car in the store’s parking lot when it escaped, wandering around the lot in an adorable coat. Toronto Police Sgt. Ed Dzingala stated the obvious about the situation, noting that, “It’s a smart monkey.” Keep reading »

If your sex life sucks as of late, it’s probably not your fault.  Feel free to blame your rut on your IKEA bedroom set. At least, that’s what BBC personality Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is suggesting. “How could anyone enjoy having sex in an Ikea bedroom?” he asked. “I find IKEA’s attitude deeply unsexy … For a start, it’s all flat-pack – it’s going to rattle … That’s not what grown-up sex is like. Grown-up sex should be opera, it should be drama, it should be black velvet and silk, and it should be indulgent and opulent, regardless of how much it costs.” Well, at least it’s not anything you did. That must make you feel better. Just get rid of that MALM bed frame you’ve had since college, splurge on something more opulent and let the opera sex begin. Personal responsibility averted. After the jump, some other things that you can blame your lackluster love life on. Yay excuses! Keep reading »
