IKEA was founded by Ingvar Kamprad as a mail order company in the small town of Älmhult in 1953. The first IKEA store opened here in 1958, and today more than a million people visit this original IKEA store every year. IKEA is actually an abbreviation of Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd. Agunnaryd is the name of the farm and town where Kamprad grew up. At the IKEA Museum, you'll get a glimpse of the whole success story from the beginning in Älmhult and out into the world.
