Browse the stories on a timeline running from the Ice Age in Småland, Sweden, and up to today. You decide where to start and where to go next on your journey through the decades. Let your curiosity and special interests lead the way. Don’t be surprised if a story set in the 1990s suddenly takes you back to events in a different decade, or the other way around.
Each story reflects the winding road that has led up to a particular point in time, an event, a new agenda or a smart solution for life at home. Some things have taken a lifetime or more from start to finish, while other things happened very quickly.
In addition to stories about life at home and IKEA products, a multitude of stories reveal the inner workings of IKEA. And whether it’s about a triumph or a great mistake, a dangerous adventure or a revolutionary collapse, we do our best to tell it like it was.
