I have no ikea!

I have been spotting it for years now, but I never really thought about what brought this IKEA logo to the side of a parking lot in Ashrafieh... The Swedish furniture and lifestyle items manufacturer would never break even financially in Lebanon (Lebanese rarely move houses, almost never change their furniture, and the expat-flood that makes the bread and butter of the brand in the gulf is lacking here) , and yet for a number of years now someone painted the logo there (Actually, there are two of them). Where did it come from? I have no ikea!
