Graphics, User Interfaces You probably missed this earth-shattering news, but Ikea IKEA, the Swedish furniture and other assorted home decoration products company, has switched fonts. The company always used the Futura font for its catalogues, but the latest edition has ditched it in favour of Verdana. This has caused quite the stir among typography geeks.

The very first image that leapt into my head when I saw the new layout was the WalMart advertisement I just got in the mail. Apart from the quirky furniture names, it's nearly indistinguishable from a WalMart flyer.
