"IKEA not what others think of what I do..."

Three facts I learned today from proofreading a book on Scandinavian furniture design*:

1. Members of the functionalist design movement in Finland were known as Funkis.
2. There's a Norwegian furniture company called Fjord Fiesta.
3. Dögg is an acceptable girl's name in Iceland.

* Look, I have to live with this stuff cluttering up my brain. I don't see why you shouldn't help me bear the burden...
