that's My World, ABC Wednesday I for IKEA
I think that you all know IKEA . These are some of the things we bought at IKEA. We like it because it's strong, modern, Scandinavian and not expensive.
Here is a bit about the history of IKEA.
IKEA was founded in 1943 by 17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad in Sweden, named as an acronym comprising the initials of the founder's name (Ingvar Kamprad ), the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd), and his home parish (Agunnaryd, in Småland, South Sweden).It is a privately held, Swedish international home products company. It designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture and anything we need to furnish a house with, like crockery,cutlery and curtains.IKEA is the largest furniture retailer in the world.
My grandson was moving house and wanted his room furnished in black. So far we found a black carpet, a black chair, and black cupboards, but a lovely red hassock, which could serve as a table. The other photos were taken at IKEA's itself and show a variety of garden benches.
