On 30 June this year, IKEA Museum opened its doors in what was the first IKEA store from 1958 located in Älmhult, Sweden. The building has been restored to its original form according to drawings by architect Claes Knutson. The museum is a must-see for anyone curious about the world-famous company and showcases design and product development including ideas and driving forces, mistakes and lessons learned, and of course its people and furniture. “Ingvar Kamprad founded IKEA 70 years ago and we have many stories to share. Events, situations and people who have made IKEA what it is today,” says IKEA Museum’s manager Carina Kloek-Malmsten.
