While Daenarys and Drogon stole the show on Sunday night, the biggest Game of Thrones plot twist came from the show’s costume department. It turns out, much like Jon Snow’s lineage, the costumes on the hit HBO show are not what they seem.

 

As you were lounging in front of the television Sunday night—sitting on your IKEA Norsborg couch and eating off your IKEA Hemnes coffee table watching Jaime Lannister and his armies get roasted on the battlefield, you might have noticed something awfully familiar about the costumes at Castle Black. Wait, is that? No, can’t be. Yeah, he’s wearing the IKEA rug that’s under your feet right now. According to the Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton, “These capes are actually IKEA rugs.”

If you were as surprised as we were to hear this, Clapton explained that the affordable rugs have been dyed and redesigned to fit in with the show’s aesthetic, which makes sense because Jon Snow doesn’t wear crisp white furs in the show or going into battle (man, still thinking about the epic Battle of the Bastards, and poor, doomed Rickon). According to the New York Post, Clapton also said, “I want the audience to almost smell the costumes.”

Now whether it’s the Tejn or Rens, we can’t tell, but the next time you make a trip to IKEA, which is probably tomorrow because you need to buy a new Knavel pillow, well, you can Jon Snow your wardrobe and pick up a couple rugs yourself. And don’t forget to get some Swedish meatballs. Unless they remind you too much of Sam’s poop soup montage.
