There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love spending hours browsing IKEA’s selection of DIY furniture, and those who dread the IKEA shopping experience. The only thing both of these people can agree on is that IKEA makes a good Swedish meatball. Everyone who walks into IKEA’s cafeteria will immediately react as Homer Simpson is wont to do, saying: “Mmmmm…IKEA meatballs.” Although we all know the name IKEA, very few people actually know what these letters stand for. IKEA is an acronym, with the IK standing for Ingvar Kamprad (the store’s founder), the E standing for Elmtaryd (Kamprad’s farm), and the A standing for Agunnaryd (Kamprad’s hometown).
Believe it or not, Kamprad founded IKEA way back in 1943 when he was only a 17-year-old Swedish lad. Today, Kamprad is still raking in the dough at the amazing age of 90. Since 2008, IKEA has officially been designated the most successful furniture retailer on the planet. IKEA’s 392 stores can be found in almost 50 countries around the world, including America, France, and Canada.

Although IKEA has its main headquarters in the Netherlands, it’ll cost you a pretty penny in postage to send a letter there from North America. It’s far better for all Canadians to use this address:
