For more than 75 years, IKEA has made it possible for people all over the world to create beautiful and functional homes. The reason for our success is the people behind the furniture. Every day we dare to think differently, and we constantly work together to find new ways, doing things better. In IKEA we encourage you to be your unique self – as long as you share our values and get inspired by our vision of creating a better everyday life for the many people.
DO YOU WANT TO BUILD OUR BRAND? Where others see home furnishing products, we see smart solutions to create a better everyday life. With a great deal of passion, imagination and brainstorming we turn colours, textiles and furniture into inspiring environments that excite, engage and convince IKEA visitors that they can do it too!
