A quirky Danish home store just made a splash in New York City — here are 12 of the craziest things you can buy there

Melia Robinson/Business InsiderCopenhagen-based home-decor brand Flying Tiger has been called the “IKEA of junk.”
In some ways, it’s true: The chain’s first US outpost in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood has a modern, white-walled design that reminds us of the world’s largest furniture retailer. Customers snake through one continuous aisle that wraps around the store, a layout similar to IKEA’s.
Flying Tiger focuses on much smaller and quirkier tchotchkes, rather than ready-to-assemble furniture. And the prices are unbelievably low. Most items cost between $1 and $4.
