  6. In Your Friday Dose of Weird Internet, Tumblr Finds IKEA Products In Classic Paintings

    Is a Swedish time machine a TÄRDIS?

    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.
