If I was Bjorn the owner of IKEA, I'd...

...come up with better, more appropriate names for their products.

Yes, using Swedish place names is cute and sometimes ironic (the "Hott" kettle, for instance...) but I think their success in North America would permit them a few more imaginative names...

So here's the challenge. Come up with names for IKEA stuff, real or imaginary.

examples:
The "POTATTO" couch
The "WATCHIT" television stand
The "PORNO" under-bed magazine concealment system.

...let the pigeons loose, people!

You're forgetting the most important part!

The ümlaut!

Ikea is nothing without the mighty ümlaut.
