IKEA

Founded in 1943 by Ingvar Kamprad at the age of 17, the Swedish company is known for its accessible and modern home furniture. Currently the world’s largest furniture retailer, IKEA has over 400 stores in 52 countries. With its low costs and diverse selection of home products — IKEA’s ubiquitous fixtures — it’s not often that you’ll go through a single day without seeing something that wasn’t produced by the company. On top of furniture, IKEA is known for its one-way approach to retail space, and its quick food options. Its one-way store layout coupled with canteen ensures that shoppers explore the entire space without going hungry.
