IKEA is a multinational group, headquartered in the Netherlands, that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances and home accessories. It has been the world’s largest furniture retailer since at least 2008. The furniture store has an astounding 298 stores in 26 countries, selling $36 billion a year.
