My tribute to Ikea’s once-upon-a-time font, futura -- based on a catalogue page -- is also a play on words: Ikea means home in Swedish; oikos means home in Greek. So, if you translate the title (or swap the different “home” words), you produce what may be a “comfortable” tautology. (Or the tautology of comfort).
