Ikea’s made household item shopping very easy in most ways -- the flat-packing, the organization, the catalog -- and very difficult in one: the names of the products. But never let the pronunciation of “Poang” or “Halleknop” stop you from getting the perfect chair or rug ever again. Creatives Alexander Norling and Kyle Wai Lin and their team have created “Ikea in Swedish” a site that lets you listen to audio recordings of the names of Ikea products so you won’t embarrass yourself at that store -- or in front of that cute Swedish girl -- ever again.
