Almost everyone has spent a day walking the corridors of IKEA looking for furniture or decoration for their home, wondering if they have gotten into a maze and not in a furniture store. But, have you ever wondered who founded it? IKEA's beginnings go back to 1943 when its founder Ingvar Kamprad at the age of 17 decided to start a business with the money his father had given him for getting good grades in school. The founder didn't start selling beds, sofas, and desks like he does today; in fact, it was not until 1948 that they began to trade in furniture. IKEA's started the business by selling smaller items, such as Christmas decorations, postcards, pens, wallets, frames, and jewelry, among others.

IKEA's name has a meaning: IK is the initials of its founder and EA the first letter of the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd). Furniture names are not made-up words, and in fact, follow a rather clever system. The different products receive real names from various categories. For example, toiletries are names of lakes, ponds, or rivers; the bedding is flowers or plants; tables or chairs are Scandinavian names, and so on. The most popular product is The Billy Bookcase which stands out for its simplicity. It is so popular that it is estimated that the company sells a unit every 10 seconds. Its success is due to its versatile and minimalist design. The world's largest store is in Gwangmyeong, near Seoul. Grab the best offers on the Ikea discount code UK sale online and promo codes.

In 1994 IKEA was the first company in the world to launch an ad featuring a gay couple on American television. 1% of wood stocks are used by the company. If we consider that there are 389 IKEA stores in the world that receive 915 million face-to-face visits, in addition to 2.1 billion in the online store, this data becomes less impressive. The world's best-known furniture store has more than six decades of history. Click and enjoy offers on the Ikea voucher code UK free delivery and coupon codes.
