We already know Nicolas Cage is a vampire and Keanu Reeves is immortal, but were you also aware that IKEA gets its designs from classic paintings? Or IKEA is run by a cabal of time travelers who keep reusing the same designs as they Swedishly (yeah, I said Swedishly) bop around the centuries. Or IKEA uses designs simple and timeless enough that some of them will naturally pop up elsewhere.

…The second one. Definitely the second one. Tumblr Ikea b4-XVI, run by Cecilia Azcarate, has proof.
