Secrets of The IKEA Naming System revealed. I cannot express how much I love knowing things like this:
Upholstered furniture, coffee tables, rattan furniture, bookshelves, media storage, doorknobs: Swedish placenames (for example: Klippan)
Beds, wardrobes, hall furniture: Norwegian place names
Dining tables and chairs: Finnish place names
Bookcase ranges: Occupations
Bathroom articles: Scandinavian lakes, rivers and bays
You have to read the whole list. Quite a nice blog on naming and branding overall.
(Sorry, by the way, for the radio silence. And happy new year.)
