These furniture advertisements take a humorous approach to promoting home essentials like chairs, tables and beds. IKEA is one of the most well-known companies for coming up with entertaining ads, which speaks to its young target demographic who is just starting out.

Since a lot of furniture isn't able to be flat-packed, this means that a lot of the time, this is one category where people are not shopping online.
