IKEA's Gingerbread Höme furniture features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features IKEA's flat-pack Gingerbread Höme furniture kit.

IKEA has endeared readers with its instructions for how to assemble some of its furniture designs using gingerbread and icing instead of screws and MDF.

The Gingerbread Höme assembly kits resemble the company's traditional instruction manuals, including everything from the inventory to the step-by-step illustrations.

Readers are delighted. "Cuuute", said one.
