Ikea train in Kobe

If there is one thing Ikea is fantastic at, besides making flat pack furniture, it’s advertising. For their opening in Kobe, Japan, Ikea decked out trains with Ikea furniture. Rush hour has never looked better.

    What a great idea! U get to sit and ‘live’ with the fabrics for a bit before you decide if you love it. Alas, in Malaysia, passengers wud prolly slice out d fabrics and bring home – free furnishings! Malaysia boleh :)

    Sadly, it would also get ruined all too quickly on London’s underground.

    That’s pretty neat. If such a thing were in Chicago it would get trashed by spilled coffee, food, and general vandalism in just one work day :(
