ecor1: So its ok to erase 1/2 of humanity from your catalog? lol
Vidwiz: Looks like a bathroom to me...NOT a kitchen
AverageAmericanGuy: This is the tradeoff when you want to become a global company. You can either remain stalwart in your core values or you can meld with the local culture.
carrion_luggage: I like to sit in Ikea demo bathrooms and scream "Occupied!" and "I'm in here!" at passers-by. Does this make me a bad person? And should I feel bad about it?
ciberido: Is that sufficiently broad
smitty04: [3.bp.blogspot.com image 393x400] Muslim world objects to this.[pre.cloudfront.goodinc.com image 450x338]Muslim version.
Bungles: There was a big fuss a few months ago, as it's the first time the catalogue has been entirely computer generated, not using actual physical mocked up rooms. The woman wasn't ever really in either picture because that room doesn't exist.
