Roadtrip - Ikea Museum

How it all began - selling matches, grooming kits and fountain pens!

Ingvar's first office after becoming a registered business at 17

Ikea by mail as it was in the early days

It was really interesting hearing all about how it began in this tiny village with one little boy and a lot of determination! I also learnt what the acronym Ikea actually stands for which I never knew before! Ingvar Kamprad (His full name) Elmtaryd Agunnaryd (the village and his Grandparents farm) So NICE!
Later on I'll show you the lovely little set ups of rooms through the decades which I loved.
