Home in IKEA

Friday, April 29, 2011

Yahoo! Aren't those photographs hilarious? Photographer Christian Gideon and a few of his close friends had this brilliant idea of shooting a series of photos where for a day they pretended to live in IKEA's showrooms. I have to admit that secretly I wish I could join in the fun! (is it just me?) Sweets, aren't those funny? xo

Update: After reading this post Irena went to her local Ikea and recreated the same concept! Brilliant! Check it out:)

P.S: Are you watching the Royal wedding as we speak? I'm totally glued to the telly! (emotional)

haha this is awesome!

i hate to admit it, but i am watching the wedding...i am in no way a royalist - having grown up with them, they are just something that are 'there' and really not that interesting - but it is oddly compelling viewing!

Cool idea!

I'm watching the wedding too. Well I'm a lover of all things british and love to see all those little union jacks and stuff - but best of all is to hear them speaking: It sounds so sophisticated...

oh,henry! said...

o boy! i am going to ikea on saturday and i PROMISE i will make a photo like this. it's a pledge to you, dear. :)
haha.. wonderful idea, i like the first photo so much!

i am watching the wedding too and i am suffering, because we have two awful commentators.
i don't believe in weddings, but this is more than just a wedding - they really have obligations to follow - she got list of rules after this day. i don't find it that romantic.. but still - i could not miss it.

This is so cute, I love the idea of it. The showrooms really are set up like you could just kick off your shoes and live there. Yea, I'm watching the wedding haha but just to see her dress.

Hilarious! I've always wanted to crawl into a bed or two. They look so comfy.

I just watched the kiss online! I did tear up a little. I wish Princess Di were there to see it.

Too fun.
When I was younger I wanted to be trapped in the mall so I could pretend to live there.

Diana Mieczan said...

Diana Mieczan said...

And Nikki, me too and I wish Princess Di was there. She would be so proud:)
