Through November 14th, the Warrington Museum & Art Gallery in England is hosting an exhibition exploring a variety of artists' reaction to IKEA. Warrington is the site of the UK's first IKEA store which opened in 1987 and has one of the most visitors of any store in England.

As part of The Dream of Modern Living Exhibit, organizers invited artists to create pieces that explore their experience with IKEA "as a business, lifestyle and aesthetic." Shown above is a coffin built from a BILLY bookcase.
