Cool Idea: Ikea Trains

If you happen to be in Kobe, Japan, make sure to ride the rails, since through May 6th, the train is decked out in Ikea seating and textiles. The Kobe Portliner Monorail has been decorated in Ikea gear to celebrate the launch of an Ikea store at Port Island.

I know that I get tired of the bland interiors of my train. Don't you think it would be refreshing and reinvigorating to ride in one of these?

Maybe the japanese travelers will be clean? Hey its a great way to test out the durability of the fabrics... if it can make it thru japans rush hour it can hold up to ur 3 year old kid and a few pets... good to know for shopping moms

That is awesome. The subway system in NYC needs some sprucing up maybe with the new IKEA opening in Brooklyn hopefully, this could be a possibility.

Ikea + Japan = hilarious train. It's a logical conclusion.

I would love it if CalTrain or Bart looked that fun!

Wow, I'd love to ride in there. It looks party-ready, lol. Party on the train! But, yes, I'd want to go while it's still new. If they do manage to keep it nice, that would certainly perk up a commute. A train that favors a living room cooler than most--GREAT advertising idea.

What a great way to advertise. Although I can imagine the condition those sofas will be in when the ad campaign is over lol
