There are 301 IKEA stores spread out over 41 countries. It is the worlds largest furniture retailer. Ikea was founded in Sweden in 1943 by then-17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad, who was listed as one of the world’s richest people in 2013. The company’s name is an acronym that consists of the initials of Ingvar Kamprad, Elmtaryd (the farm where Ingvar Kamprad grew up), and Agunnaryd (his hometown in south Sweden). The company is known for its modern architectural designs for various types of appliances and furniture, and its interior design work is often associated with an Eco-friendly simplicity. IKEA is also known for a few other things. Like it’s hard to follow instructions that lead to a lot of frustration when trying to assemble furniture. The pictures below might be a little hard to laugh at if you have ever tried assembling IKEA furniture. I can relate!
1. A dustpan that costs £1,385.70? I wonder what it is made out of?
2. When this happens.
3. When you get stuck while constructing your Ikea bed.
4. When your gargantuan hot dog dreams are crushed.
5. When you realize that Ikea’s romantic cuddly toys are a little odd.
6. When you catch a cuddly Ikea fox bumming another Ikea fox…awkward!
7. When Ikea shelves aren’t exactly straight.
8. When the drawers don’t fit and you want to cry.
9. When you build a chair and it looks like this.
10. When Ikea trolleys can’t handle the sheer weight of the Scandinavian furniture.
11. And then your glasses end up like this.
12. When the pegs come through the underside of your coffee table and, despite smiling about it, it’s a tragedy.
13. When all you can do is laugh at yourself
14. When your wardrobe doesn’t fit even a little bit in your Ford.
15. When your matching chairs do not match.
16. When you accidentally buy the kiddie tool kit.
17. When you forget your fashionable monkey in the store.
18. And your books look like this.
19. When your bed doesn’t fit your mattress.
20. When your clothes look like this all of a sudden.
I wonder if these people ever went back to IKEA after these mishaps. Of course they did. You can’t quit IKEA!
