The Near-Rockwellian Quality of Life Lived Within an Ikea Store

Photos: Christin Gideon

For anyone who has spent a lazy Sunday afternoon longing for more than just a passing gander at the decked-out RAMSJÖ kitchen vignette in Ikea, this one's for you. Photographer Christian Gideon has hunkered down and chronicled what life would be like if he lived in within the Swedish furnishings chain. (It's kind of like what comedian Mark Malkoff did, but the photos have an artistic, almost timeless quality to them.) Thanks to Gideon and his band of merry friends, those meticulously crafted, oddly alluring, fully styled rooms so familiar to Ikea shoppers have now come to life. Have a look above—then head over here for the full gallery.
