IKEA may be known for giving customers amenities beyond the average shopping experience, but one of its stores reportedly went well above and beyond the call of duty.
Shoppers at an IKEA store in central Israel had quite the sensory experience after a woman allegedly vomited on one of the store's couches and then proceeded to the bedroom display.
Once there, she picked a bed she liked, took off her flip flops, and fell asleep.
The Israeli news site Walla posted photos of the sleeping woman, whom the site did not identify, and reports that customers believed she was drunk.

But eyewitnesses told Walla that neither the IKEA sales staff nor other customers disturbed the woman.
"Customers simply didn't come to try that bed," one eyewitness told Walla.
The woman apparently was permitted to remain sleeping on the display bed and sheets until closing time Wednesday. At that time, a store security guard woke her, and she went on her way.
"I never saw anything like it," another eyewitness told the Hebrew news site.
In a statement to Walla, IKEA said the woman "felt unwell when she arrived at the store, and our people therefore permitted her to rest until she felt better. We wish her the best of health."
