Just a few days ago, IKEA installed a brilliant setup in Paris' Gare de Lyon train station that included big furniture of all types that you might see in an IKEA store, but what made it truly unique is that everything was oversized.

The gigantic apartment recreation had items like tables tall enough to walk under, rocking horses, chairs so large a full-grown adult's legs wouldn't even touch the floor and drinking glasses so big, you’d need both hands to hold them. This is a fantastic way to make adults feel like big kids, especially considering that Christmas is just a few days away.

This fantastical recreation of childhood truly made adults act like big kids, which
reiterates a sense of wonder as well as associate IKEA's furniture with a sense of fun. Stats for Gigantic Furniture Installations Trending: Older & Chilly
