Ikea

ikea 200We don’t just make things,
we make things better.

At IKEA, our philosophy is to design things that improve life at home for everyone. That means making products that are more than just beautiful, but innovative in how they work, able to withstand daily use, sustainably produced, and affordable for everyone. That's how products that make our homes better can make your lives better, too.

Democratic design, ever-evolving

We began learning about the production of furniture 60 years ago. We had just begun to design our own furniture and needed to learn how best to match the possibilities of the supplier with the needs of the customer. Bringing the two closer together was how we would keep prices low.

Since then we’ve continued to apply these methods and to work with suppliers right on the factory floor. What we today call democratic design influences and benefits every part of IKEA - from our development facilities in Älmhult, to our suppliers around the globe, including local artisans in places like India and South East Asia.

Over the years we’ve learnt that by constantly asking ourselves, “Is there a better way?”, bright ideas can come from just about anywhere, from anyone.
