5 Popular IKEA Names and What They Mean
The mystery behind the exotic furniture names revealed!
If you've ever shopped at an IKEA store abroad, I'm sure you've wondered at least once what those lengthy names mean (example: "Kejsarkrona" are a set of eating utensils, not some medieval monster).
The names are mostly Scandinavian words for actual things, places, and people. And even IKEA is an acronym—it stands for Ingvar Kamprad (the founder), Elmtaryd (his farm), and Agunnaryd (the town he grew up in). And the monikers given are organized into different categories. For example: dining furniture are names of towns, bookcases are occupations and professions, fabrics are women's names, and study desks are men's names.
There are a few exceptions to the rule, in ways only the Scandinavians seem to understand. A peek at the unofficial IKEA Dictionary would be helpful. Meanwhile, here are some of the more popular pieces and their meanings:
