Today the upcoming IKEA museum in Älmhult, Sweden launched a new blog, collecting stories about the one and only bookshelf Billy and the couch Klippan.
The KLIPPAN sofa and the BILLY bookcase have been part of the IKEA furniture family for a long time now. Over these years they’ve become two of the most popular items of IKEA furniture, so we’re pretty sure you’ve got stories to tell about your relationship with KLIPPAN and BILLY.
Aside from being featured on this blog, the best stories will be showcased in the first and only IKEA Museum, located in the original IKEA store in Älmhult, Sweden.
The IKEA Museum opens in the autumn of 2015 and will be housed in the world’s first IKEA store in Älmhult, Sweden. It will contain a permanent and a temporary exhibition as well as a restaurant and a gift shop. The most unique stories about BILLY and KLIPPAN collected through the blog will be featured as part of an exhibtion featuring the bookshelf and the couch.
As Billy might be the most common bookshelf in Swedish homes (and probably elsewhere?) hopefully the IKEA Museum will have plenty of exciting and personal stories to choose from when building the exhibitions.
