When a company this big decides to make even a slight change to how it makes or sources its products, it's a massive undertaking. That's exactly what Ikea is doing right now—and I got an inside look at the process.
Cinemas of late have tried to lure audiences away from their living rooms with big comfy, upgraded seats. But that's nothing compared to the facelift Ikea gave a theatre in Khimki, Russia: the seats were all removed and replaced with freshly made beds.
Everyone freaked out when IKEA announced that it would sell a sit/stand desk powered by electricity for less than £500. A healthy desk option for the masses, finally! But we can't believe how much we like this.
In order to promote a new superstore coming to Clermont-Ferrand in the middle of France, the company installed a fully functional climbing wall of inexpensive modern furniture outside of a cathedral. Spider-Man's new living room?
