IKEA is the product of Sweden arguably best known and most associated with all things Swedish, well, these days in any case.
So it is isn’t very wondrous that Christoph Niemann, a well-known (OK, I had never heard of him before but I don’t regularly read the publications –albeit those publications are very well-known to me–he has been featured in) artist and illustrator, includes a little mention (or rather, more of a dig) to the flat-packing furniture and furnishings global mammoth in a cute blog entry he published in the NY Times a few days ago (and was republished and posted on Facebook by 3 friends today.)
Take a peek. The cookie image piece has nothing else to do with Sweden. But it does spread a humorous and tasty spirit of Christmas.
And it mentions IKEA.
