A promotional stunt will let lucky groups spend the night

The problem with shopping at Ikea is you're constantly shuffled along through manufactured rooms, never getting real quality time with the Nordli or Brimnes you're considering. For the savvy shopper in Australia, there is an alternative: spend a night in the showroom courtesy of Ikea and Airbnb.

Three groups of four guests will have the chance to stay in an Australian showroom overnight, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The digs are part of a promotion, so the stay's free, besides a $12 Airbnb administrative fee. You even get an Ikea breakfast and the sheets you used during the night as part of the deal.

It's unclear, though, if you can avoid a (500) Days of Summer scenario.
