Retailer IKEA is known for its showrooms, in which their stylish, modern furniture is impeccably arranged and offers its own version of a fantasy—it’s a glimpse into what life would be like if you had that dreamy layout as your own. Inside the company’s flagship store in Slependen, Norway, however, a typically bright and welcoming display has been replaced with a powerful message. IKEA has recently partnered with the Red Cross to transform one of its pop-up spaces into a replica of a Syrian home.
