What if you could build a chair and then eat it? IKEA Canada is making that a reality with instructions for gingerbread furniture.

The Swedish retailer is offering free downloadable directions on how to construct some of their most iconic items out of the delicious holiday dessert.

They include the BILLY bookcase, JOKKMOKK table and chairs, and MALM bedframe.

After all, if you're going to put together an entire gingerbread house, why not go the extra mile and furnish it as well?

The templates and instructions are even designed to look like the ones you would get with actual non-edible furniture from the store.

The best part is that you don't have to put anything together using an allen key or a screwdriver, just some icing or melted sugar.

You also get to eat any extra pieces that you might end up with during assembly.

It's no surprise that a store known as much for its food as its furniture would eventually wind up combining the two.
