Test Ikea Metro

Test Ikea Metro

Considering what an event going to Ikea is, and how immersive an experience shopping there feels like, I was rather surprised and pleased to see this little nugget online this week. It seems the great Swedish fish of decor has installed their wares at a quartet of Parisian Metro stations from March 10th-24th. Though sitting on a couch is certainly more appealing than standing around waiting for the train, I wonder how grimy the upholstery will be by the end of the event. Even still, not a bad idea, and certainly a decent way to still get the Ikea vignette feel without heading out to the suburbs. via

Good magazine neighborhood infographics contest

Good magazine recently reached out to its readership to design infographics about neighborhoods. (The magazine also teamed up with Pictory to design its slideshow Neighborhood Treasures.) The results are not only beautiful to look at but tell fascinating stories.
