the deck contains the four suits of the minor arcana — the traditional classifications of tarot cards — but replaces wands, coins, swords and chalices with sofas, lamps, dowels, and allen keys. the ‘llovers’ card shows a happy couple who are about to embark on a flatpack project, and the ‘töwer’ card depicts a bookcase that is toppling over due to the weight of someone who is trying to climb it.

‘IKEA is a place of transition, a journey, a source of light and comfort, but also strife…’, leffert describes. ‘harness that power to understand your own life with these cleanly-designed ikea-themed tarot cards.’
