Corporation
    Founded by Ingvar Kamprad in Almhult, Sweden (1943)
    Self-assembly furniture retailer
    139,000 employees (2012)
    Their stores are almost exclusively located in urbanized areas.
    Because of this, some customers have to endure navigating beyond traffic to reach store and return home.
    The stores' exterior has a blue-yellow color scheme akin to the Swedish flag.
    The layout of each store is often winding like a maze. This makes it harder to search for lost children.
    Products often have unpronounceable faux-Swedish names.
    In order to obtain your desired piece of furniture, you must travel the long and winding path to the marketplace or warehouse area which also requires going downstairs.
    Many of their furniture pieces have difficult assembly instructions.
    Because of IKEA founder Kamprad's association with a neo-Nazi movement, there was controversy over a store opening in Israel.
    The company has been discovered to employ forced labor in manufacturing to keep its furniture prices down despite supporting entities opposing such practices.
    Their furniture is very colorful and unique in design.
    Their do-it-yourself furniture is meant to keep prices down.
    Their stores have restaurants and bistros often serving Swedish and local confections.
    They are very environmentally conscious in their stores and products.
    They support organizations such as UNICEF and Save the Children.
    They issue a comprehensive catalog annually entailing their furniture.
