Iconic People Named 'Billy' as IKEA shelves

IKEA-HERO.jpg

While IKEA's Wembley store on a Saturday morning is akin to the seventh circle of hell, thankfully assembling their products is a lot less painful.

Which is why we like these clever manuals dedicated to famous Billys, celebrating IKEA's popular Billy shelving units. Included in the collection is Billy Corgan (of Smashing Pumpkins), Billy Jean, Billy The Kid and Billy Idol.

Behind the concept are designers Gerrit Basson and Kit Ballantyne, who came up with the idea after Kit avoided putting up a Billy flat pack for two weeks.

They've also said the following Billys are in consideration: Joel, Bragg and Bonnie Prince. Sadly, they're not actually available to buy, but if they were we'd be in the market for a Billy Crystal .
