What will your life be like in the future? We all wish we knew and that is why IKEA, the famous furniture brand, performed an in-store experiment with some actors and Justin Tranz, a world-renowned hypnotist. You can watch what happens in the video below when Sofi and Adam, a young couple are put in a deep trance and told they would be faced with potential life-changing events. Follow them on their journey as Tranz shows the couple their future in which different life scenarios play out for them – including meeting their imaginary daughter on her 6th birthday.
Although the video is obviously make-believe its message is not. My life experience proves that.
Johan Wickham, the Global Catalogue Manager of IKEA said it best, “The everyday is exciting! It’s on those seemingly ordinary days life happens and changes. And when it does, so does our home,” he continued, “In the new IKEA catalogue you can find solutions for every episode in life.”
I couldn’t agree more. IKEA has been there for my husband and me through some of the biggest changes in our lives. We furnished our first apartment at IKEA, headed back when we bought our first home, and then back again when our boys were born. Just last year, again IKEA came to the rescue! I wish we could have foreseen Hurricane Sandy and been more prepared, but of course it took us all by surprise. After losing everything, and I do mean everything, IKEA provided a one-stop shopping solution for us to rebuild, refurnish and refill our home at the beach. We purchased most of what we needed at IKEA, including: dressers, chairs, shelves, a couch and even cups and plates, all for a great price; plus they look fabulous and are made well.
So here’s to the past, present, and future with IKEA!
Above is the damage done by Hurricane Sandy to the Jersey Shore and to our home. Below is the way our home looks now, great finds at IKEA made it home again!
