The article presents information from the furniture industry. The bidding for the world's most expensive cabinet was more fortuitous than expected and lifted its price to 19 million pound when the Badminton cabinet was auctioned at Christie's--11 million pound more than expected. Bed firm Rest Assured did its bit for its local community by sponsoring the town center Christmas lights in Batley, Yorkshire. The Swedish and German ambassadors to Russia had planned to attend the opening of Ikea's 150 million pound Mega shopping center outside Moscow when local officials called it off, claiming an underground gas pipeline was unsafe. It had been 100% safe the week before. A lack of bribery is suspected for the delays.
