Chinese Shoppers Make The Most Of IKEA’s Open Bed Policy

Chinese shoppers sleep on display furniture in the showroom of the IKEA store on July 6, 2014 in Beijing, China. Of the world’s ten biggest Ikea stores, 8 of them are in China to cater to the country’s growing middle class.

The stores are designed with extra room displays given the tendency for customers to make a visit an all-day affair. Store management does not discourage shoppers from sleeping on Ikea furniture, even marking them with signs inviting customers to try them out.
