Ikea

Ikea

A global giant in furniture retail, IKEA has revolutionised the way we buy furniture for our homes. Originating in Sweden, IKEA now has over 330 stores in 38 countries. 

Making quality design both affordable and accessible, IKEA has pioneered high quality flat-pack furniture that is convenient and stylish, transforming the look of homes around the world. 

In mid-August 2012, the company announced that it will be establishing a chain of 100 economy hotels in Europe but, unlike its few existing hotels in Scandinavia, they will not carry the Ikea name nor will they use Ikea furniture and furnishings - they will be operated by an unnamed international group of hoteliers.
