Our product range

Our product range

The IKEA product range is wide in several ways. First, it's wide in function: you'll find everything you need to furnish your home, from plants and living-room furnishings to toys and whole kitchens. Second it's wide in style. The romantic at heart will find just as much as the minimalist. And finally, by being coordinated, the range is wide in function and style at the same time, and at all times. No matter which style you prefer, there is something for everyone.
Anybody can make a good-quality product for a high price, or a poor-quality product for a low price. But to make good products at low prices, you need to develop methods that are both cost-efficient and innovative. That is why at IKEA we approach things a little differently.

We design the price tag first

The LAMPAN was created from the fundamental idea that it is possible to combine an extremely low price with beautiful design and high quality. With the low price in mind, our designers began by reviewing the whole production process, including materials used, logistics, and labour and transport costs. The outcome was a successful new packing method where the lampshade could be used as a bucket for the lamp base.

We see things differently

One IKEA product developer decided to use a door as a tabletop when he toured a door factory that used board-on-frame construction - layering of sheets of wood over a honeycomb core that gives a strong, lightweight structure with a minimal wood content. This type of construction is cost-effective and environmentally friendly, and is used today in IKEA products such as the LACK table from 1980.

Flat packing saves shipping cost

Our flat-packs and our customers' willingness to assemble products themselves enable us to reduce labour, shipping and storage costs. IKEA designs furniture so that it can be packed unassembled. Ultimately, this means that we are able to offer our customers products at low prices.

Responsibility for people and the environment

At the IKEA Group, we believe that taking responsibility for people and the environment is a prerequisite for doing good business. IKEA works actively to reduce its impact on climate change and IKEA products must be produced under acceptable working conditions by suppliers that take responsibility for the environment.

Good design and function

It's not easy combining good design and good function with the right quality, at an affordable price. But then we aren't known for taking the easy way out. By working together with skilled manufacturers, IKEA designers find ways to get the most out of a raw material. We are constantly looking for smart solutions to meet our customers needs.

Products and materials

IKEA works to ensure that products and materials are adapted to minimise any negative impact on the environment, and are safe for customers from a health perspective. As part of our business idea, we insist on keeping costs low and always try to use resources wisely when designing our products. We strive to use renewable and recyclable materials in our products.
