IKEA is a privately held, international home products company that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture such as beds and desks, appliances and home accessories. The company is the world's largest furniture retailer. Founded in 1943 by 17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad in Sweden, the company is named as an acronym comprising the initials of the founder's name (Ingvar Kamprad), the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd), and his home parish (Agunnaryd, in Småland, South Sweden).
You do your part. We do our part.
Together we save money.
From the beginning, the hard-working people at IKEA have offered IKEA customers a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible could afford them.
To do that, we have found more cost-effective* ways to work in every stage of our business and have passed our savings on to our customers. And we have been bold enough to ask our customers to do a few simple things for themselves so we don’t have to pay someone to do it. In the meantime, we keep finding better ways to design, manufacture, transport and sell home furnishings so you can live a better life at home.
* We always look for ways to do things at a lower price, but not at any price. We never cut prices at the expense of safety, the environment or people.
Inspiration is free
Visit an IKEA store and sit, lie down, test, touch and try things out. Look inside our closets and under our beds. (Who knows what good ideas you’ll find there.) Even if you walk away empty-handed, you’ll be taking home a whole lot of fresh ideas.
