Creating a better everyday life for the many people

IKEA is a Swedish Home furnishings company founded by Ingvar Kamprad in 1943 in Småland in southern Sweden. At the age of five Ingvar Kamprad started his journey as an entrepreneur selling matches to his nearby neighbours. From matches he expanded his business to selling flower seeds, greeting cards, Christmas tree decorations, and later pencils and ball point pens.

A culture of hearts

The IKEA culture is hard to describe but easy to embrace. It’s a culture of enthusiasm, togetherness and willpower, born from our roots in southern Sweden and inspired by the IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad.

The IKEA culture humbly unites us in our work to create a better everyday life for the many people. It’s not an easy task – and maybe that’s why we and all other IKEA coworkers are so dedicated.
