Ikea Everyday Fabulous Takes on NYC

Ikea has been making over parts of NYC in celebration of their Everyday Fabulous Exhibit (which ended today). Their stylists took on parks, turned hot dog stands into outdoor cafés, bustops into living rooms and strung up hammocks on street corners, bringing smiles to jaded New Yorkers and ICFF visitors, and looks of bewilderment on tourists. Cheeky and clever.
