In a time of crisis for Ikea, the Swedish furniture maker is the poster child for what not to do.
Ikea has lost billions in market value over the past few years, and its stock price has fallen in the past two weeks amid rumors of a merger with Amazon.
Ikeas stock price is up more than 8% over the last year, and analysts are calling the stock a “bubble” worth watching.
But what if Ikea isn’t your home?
Here’s what you need to know.
What is Ikea?
Ikea is a Swedish furniture and home furnishings company, which is based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Ikeas home décor and home accessories line includes furniture, bedding, tableware, and even beds.
It’s also a major seller of appliances, and the company also makes beds, couches, and other furniture.
You might think Ikea is just about a furniture and design company, but it has a wide range of other products, too.
Like Amazon, Ikea makes a wide variety of products, from kitchen cabinets to dining chairs and more.
A couple of years ago, Ikeas products were sold in about 1,000 stores in the United States.
Today, it has more than 1,600 stores, with an additional 800 stores in Asia.
Ikeans brands range from kitchen accessories to home furnishing, including the popular Ikea Bed & Garden set.
But what does Ikea sell?
According to Ikea’s most recent annual report, Ikeabox, Ikeans annual sales totaled $6.4 billion in 2016.
Ikeabodges the question of what exactly Ikea sells is a bit complicated.
We use the terms “brand” and “brand name” interchangeably.
Brand names include Ikea or Ikea Bedding, and it is not uncommon to find “Ikeabox” listed in a store’s product description.
Ikeabs brands include the popular IKEA and IKEABOLLA products, as well as many others.
In the case of the IKEa brand, it is possible to purchase an entire brand with a single order.
