Swedish furniture chain Ikea launches Chinese zodiac shopping guide.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the choice of interior design options available this year, then why not just decorate your house according to your zodiac sign?

Ikea Singapore and Malaysia have launched a new Facebook application which suggests furnishings and accessories according to your birth date in order to celebrate Chinese New Year.

Using the tagline “This lunar New Year, say neigh to clutter”, the app acts as an astrological shopping guide around the Swedish furniture giant’s latest collections.

Users must submit their date of birth for the app to determine their Chinese zodiac sign and provide a brief overview of their sign’s characteristics when it comes to interior design.

The app then suggests various interior design solutions according to each star sign’s needs.

For example, those born in the Year of the Horse are advised to keep their homes clutter-free as it will be a busy and sociable year, before being presented with a list of suitable products from the Ikea 2014 catalogue.

Users can then create a virtual shopping list of products they would like to purchase for a totally Zen furniture shopping experience. — AFP Relaxnews
