The company was founded in Sweden by Ingvar Kamprad who started by selling matches aged five and went onto to found Ikea in 1943. Now 87 years of age, he is one of the richest people in the world and has built the IKEA brand into a hugely successful global furniture and home decor retailer. The name IKEA derives from the initials of his name, IK, the farm where he grew up, Elmtaryd, and the name of his hometown Agunnaryd in the South of Sweden.
One of the key guiding principles of the company is their sustainable approach to consumer culture. IKEA reduce shipping costs by refusing to ship air. For example a bookcase will be packed down into a completely flat, solid package, by packaging their products like this shipping cost are considerably reduced and it is far easier for consumers to carry items and even take them on public transport. Their furniture is always flat-packed so that space is not wasted.
All of IKEAs products are designed in Sweden however the majority of the manufacturing is done in developing economies such as China to help keep the end cost down. An IKEA subsidiary called Swedwood handles the production of all of their wood based products, their largest factory is in the South of Poland.
IKEA have also recently moved into the housing market, selling flat pack houses in order to provide first time buyers with an affordable and contemporary living option. The house product, called Boklok, was introduced in Sweden in 1996. There are now a number of sites confirmed in Nordic countries and the UK. These include London, Leeds, Warrington and Liverpool. The houses sell for around £50,000. If you wish to enquire about an IKEA house just call the IKEA customer phone number now and they will be able to put you through to the relevant department.
IKEA generally has blue stores with yellow writing in the colours of the Swedish flag. Their stores are laid out in such a way that the customer is encouraged to walk through the entirety of the store and experience everything rather than in traditional stores where customers can walk directly to the department or section they wish to go to. IKEA stores are also well known for their food markets and particularly their Swedish meatballs.
Ikea customers were left angry over the festive period after deliveries arrived after midnight due to a backlog of orders. The shoppers complained that they had to wait until the early hours for furniture to arrive even though they paid up to £40 for home delivery. One customer was anticipating the delivery of a children’s wardrobe by 9pm, but was called by the driver at 10.30pm to say that he was running late. The customer said that she simply could not wait any longer and the driver said that he would deliver the next day. However, after waiting in all day she was called by the driver at 10pm to say that it would arrive in the next hour- eventually arriving after midnight.
Other customers have shared similar tales of anger online, saying that delivery times were ‘a mystery’ with one saying that they will never use the firm again.
Gerard Bos, Ikea’s customer relations manager apologised for the error, saying that ‘elements outside the control of the delivery crew’ could mean that they were delivered after 9pm.

The popular furniture retailer, IKEA is popping up in unexpected places.
Its latest stunt was in Russia. IKEA moved into a movie house in a Moscow suburb and invited people to a night at the movies with a difference.
Instead of watching the film the regular way, IKEA replaced cinema seats with luxurious beds to cuddle up on.
The idea is part of IKEA Russia’s “Wake Up Love” marketing campaign to launch its latest catalogue. They asked visitors what they could do to have more love around them, and one of the popular responses was to ‘spend more time together’ – hence the idea of creating a home environment in a movie theatre.
This is not the only bright idea IKEA have had. In Australia a partnership with a short-term rental site let IKEA fans finally find out what everyone wonders about – what it’s like to spend the night in an IKEA store.
An Ikea outpost in London has created a brand new motivational mirror that will compliment customers on everything from their smile to their outfit and body. The mirror uses built in Kinect sensors to issue praise to people passing, with an audio and text display. The mirror was created because research conducted by Ikea showed that one third of Brits think that they look their worst early in the morning. Using this contraption, Ikea hopes to evoke a more positive body image amongst its customers, improving their days in the process.
Some of the compliments given out in the accompanying promotional video include ‘magnificent beard!’ and ‘have you been working out?’. One delighted man even got a wolf whistle.
“It was great for me because I never get compliments. I could have stood there all day to be honest.”
Some cynics have criticised the stunt by Ikea, but when you see the video there is no denying that it puts a smile on the face of everyone who receives a compliment- surely that can only be a positive thing.
