What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Love is Complicated (IKEA is Simple)



ikea 0


In typical Scandinavian fashion, IKEA is solving the world’s romantic problems with – you guessed it – a manual. They published the six witty drawings shortly before Valentine’s day in 2016. Although I saw them too late to post last year, I thought they seemed just right for this year’s V-Day post.

“For those who believe that love is complicated, IKEA has the solution to get you through Valentine’s this year. Introducing the IKEA love manual; for troubleshooting your relationship woes” -IKEA

The illustrations helpfully suggest furniture-based solutions to some common romantic issues. And as always, IKEA’s illustrations are crystal clear and transcend language.

I hope everyone -singles, couples, thruples, and beyone – enjoys the day!

  4. Never been to one. Have no idea where one is at. I do remember that they were going to open one in greater Memphis TN. I live in a small town in Florida. The nearest one might be down in Tampa FL, about a hundred miles away.

    Just what the “love doctor” ordered. If you can read the manual, you can probably complete the project. THANX for a very interesting V.Day Blog. ~~dru~~

  6. Brilliant! We enjoy the safe familiarity of IKEA. When we emigrated, we were pleased to discover that IKEA in America is identical in every way to IKEA in Scotland and England.
