Ikea Watch

Glory on high, Gizmodo has created a .gif-addled guide to all of the names of Ikea furnishings. Bookcases are occupations (EXPEDIT = "shop assistant"), beds and wardrobes are named after Norwegian places, carpets are named after Danish places, bathroom items are named after Scandinavian rivers, and, because Ikea is apparently very gender normative, desk stuff are boys' names and fabrics are girls' names. There's also—who knew?—an entire Ikea Dictionary. How SAGOLIK! [Gizmodo]
