IKEA is gearing up to launch its Uppleva range in Europe, and has just posted a video showing how the TV/furniture hybrid went down at its first public showing in Italy last month. The video features designer Francis Cayouette talking about the inspiration for the idea and the advantages of the integrated concept, which he believes will help make IKEA's products more attractive next to traditionally-styled TVs.

We also get to see the minimal interface, which will include apps from video content partners such as YouTube and Vimeo, and the similarly simple remote that features a slide-out design to access less commonly used buttons. We're almost sold on the concept — we just need to know exactly how it'll be assembled.
