Home sweet home?

If you go down to IKEA today, you're sure of a big surprise - or at least you are if you go to the firm's store in Slependen in Norway. In addition to picking up items of flat-pack furniture, brightly coloured plastic kitchen utensils and a ropey hotdog, you're able to step into the shoes of Syrian refugees, experiencing the conditions in which they're living in a recreation of an actual home. Credit to the company for finding an arresting way to shake customers out of their comfort and complacency and alert them to the horrific reality faced by so many thousands of innocent victims.
