Tweets by @IKEAUSA

IKEA is a global company with more than 390 IKEA stores in 48 countries. Since its 1943 founding in Sweden, IKEA has offered a wide range of home furnishings and accessories of good design and function, at low prices so the majority of the people can afford them.

Combining a tremendous variety of styles  of furniture and accessories with 10,000 exclusively-designed product choices – ranging from sofas, bookcases, kitchens and kitchen appliances to beds, mattresses, office furniture and textiles – IKEA offers customers affordable solutions for every room in the home.

To help shoppers with ideas and inspiration for creating the home of their dreams, the unique IKEA shopping experience includes individual room-settings and complete home displays depicting various "life situations" — from a single mother and her daughter to a couple moving in together.

A Family-Friendly Shopping Experience

IKEA is a family-friendly company. We provide our visitors with a variety of activities for children, making the IKEA experience fun for the entire family. Below are some of these features:

IKEA Affordable Design

IKEA products are designed with the price tag first, challenging designers to be innovative and think differently, resulting in quality furniture at low prices. With this goal in mind, most IKEA furniture designs are flat-packed, fitting more into every shipment and on fewer trucks, thus minimizing impact on the environment. With transport and storage costs lower, ‘flat-packing’ reduces waste and enables IKEA to pass along big savings to the customer. Also, the IKEA self-serve shopping concept and ready-to-assemble products (with globally-used pictorial assembly directions) allow customers to take their purchases home and use them on the same day.
