Comic: Generically pleasing?

I still have some of the lines from that IKEA article from The New Yorker stuck in my brain, like a pop song or something. I can't wait to see what article gets stuck in my head with the next issue . . .

2 more quotes:

Just as the goal of a real room is to look like a fake one, the goal of a fake room is to look like a real one. 63

IKEA attempts to make room sets generically pleasing . . . 64

Now you've got my head stuck in the free coffee zone of the Shanghai Ikea, Nin.

And I'm feeling like a golden retriever that's got its paw stuck in the Lewis Carroll Event Horizon.

The shades of difference between the real room and the fake one, as the long day closes -- or wait, is it about to begin? -- are getting blurrier by the day (but wait, is this night?).
