IKEA's Oval Office.
President-elect Barack Obama’s notion of change and his commitment to fiscal responsibility is much in line with the IKEA philosophy—commuters at Union Station in DC recently got a first look at a 'new Oval Office'
IKEA to furnish Obama’s Oval Office?
Why not? In times of financial trouble, turn to the Swedish furniture chain for stylish, practical and economic inspiration when furnishing your home. President-elect Barack Obama’s notion of change and his commitment to fiscal responsibility matches IKEA’s philosophy of practical and affordable home furnishings for all. IKEA lost no time; they have already shown a replica of the Oval Office decorated à la Swedish cottage with light furniture and red-and-white striped curtains.
If you passed by Union Station in Washington, DC last week (2009), you probably saw it. Done a bit tongue-in-cheek, of course, but really ... why not? If not the Oval Office, then perhaps part of the Obama’s family quarters of the White House can be outfitted by IKEA?ADVERTISEMENT
