China's inexplicable fondness for napping in strange locations is a well-documented affair. The Telegraph has a gallery showcasing photographer Kevin Frayer's unique interest in cataloging those who have decided to slumber in the various Ikea stores dotting the country. The results are both hilarious and endearing, with one image portraying a bespectacled mother snoozing alongside a cherubic baby. Fortunately, the local branches of the mammoth Swedish furniture franchise seem to have no issues with the phenomenon.
