The Chinese Love Napping In IKEA

IKEA is the one stop shop for all your starter furniture and meatball needs, but recently, it has become a safe haven for nappers across China. In unrelated news, the Nard Dawg has found a new lunch break destination.

IKEA spokesman Josefin Torell said the Swedish company isn’t in the business of interrupting naps. If only my boss thought like that.

“This is a spontaneous phenomenon. Some customers who enter the Chinese stores sleep in the bed. IKEA in China does nothing to prevent nor anything to attract sleepers. But we don’t see it as a problem, we’re happy people feel at home in our stores. Certainly, it entails a little extra work for the staff, purely practically. But on the other hand, if customers try out our furniture and like it, we can sell an extra mattress or two.”

Check out these customers living out your mid-day dream, actually they’re quite literally dreaming:
