Are you Australian and in need of a new pair of sheets? Well, you can get a free set if you’re included in one of three groups picked to spend the night at an IKEA store as part of a promotion between the furniture company and Airbnb.

The one-night event, currently booking through Airbnb, gives three groups of up to four guests the opportunity to enjoy a sleepover at IKEA’s Tempe store in Sydney, Australia, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Those interested in calling IKEA home for the night have the option of three room set styles: modern elegance, rustic charm and inner city living. Each comes with three beds and access to communal living spaces.

Guests of the event will receive tips and tricks on how to improve their homes and make them friendly to any future Airbnb guests. The evening also includes a communal dinner and accommodations including TVs, video games and circus games – for the kids that will be in attendance.

Oh yea, we didn’t mention that before? The event is family friendly and open to children ages six and older.

As for the next morning, guests can expect to experience a “remarkable wake-up call” to usher in the first day of spring. We don’t know what that actually means, but we’re thinking along the lines of a rooster alarm clock?

Before the groups depart for their real homes, IKEA – not one to sell used bedding – will gift the previous night’s bed sheets to its overnight guests.

People interested in being considered for the August 31 IKEA sleepover must apply through the Airbnb website by describing in 25 words or less why they should win and answer several questions.

While the event – including dinner – is free, guests must pay the $12 Airbnb administration fee in order to participate.
