Photographer's Note

I guess that now that IKEA is all over the world (europe, america, asia, australia, middel east etc...) lots of people would put IKEA in their top 3 of swedish things (together with blond girl and snow).
For those of you who don't know about it, it is a chain of MASSIVE furniture stores. When you come in, you enter a one way system, so that you have to go across the whole shop before reaching the exit. Because a 5 hours trek in an over-heated shop could be tiring for some people, they scattered some bars and fast-foods which serve typical swedish food and drinks along the way.

But don't get me wrong! I love IKEA:
_ because of the funny names of the objects (BEDDINGE LÖVÅS is the name of a sofa for exemple),
_ because of it simple scandinavian designs,
_ because it's got everything for your house, and even more,
_ because it's cheap,
_ because it sometimes smells of pine tree (not common in London for exemple...)
_ because I like Sweden
