Got a question? We are happy to help.

The IKEA business spans a wide range of areas, organisations and companies. To help you find the right contact, we've put together the most commonly asked questions, including contact details.

Here is a list of our most commonly asked questions:

  • To make finding reports and publications easier, we have gathered them in one place.

  • Inter IKEA Systems B.V., the IKEA franchisor, is constantly evaluating potential IKEA franchisees in both new and existing markets.

    When considering new franchisees, Inter IKEA Systems B.V. evaluates attributes such as:

    • experience
    • local market knowledge and presence (demonstrating ability to set up and operate IKEA stores nationally)
    • corporate culture and values
    • financial strength and ability to complete the investment process across a country and in a large-scale retail environment format

  • We are always looking for new suppliers who share our passion for quality and sustainability.

  • We are always happy to receive ideas for our range and all submissions are considered. We receive a lot of ideas, so please have patience with us.

    Fill in a design proposal form on the alchemer survey site.

  • The IKEA trademark is sometimes used without our permission. It is very important to us that our consumers are not misled, and that they can have confidence that all products bearing the IKEA trademark are genuine products.

    We therefore ask you to help us by reporting any wrongful use of the IKEA trademark or similar marks. We cannot give you any reward or compensation, but you will get a big thank you for your support in protecting the IKEA trademark and preventing fraud and misrepresentation.

    Send us an email and attach images reporting a trademark violation

  • We tend to grant permission for educational and training purposes and deserving causes. Material that does not fit under either of these categories is assessed on a case by case basis since we want to know the context in which the material will be used. We also tend to allow photographers to use their own photos for their own catalogues/books provided they do not use the IKEA trademark.

  • IKEA stores are only allowed to sell within the country they are located. However, if the order is at least one 20 ft shipping container, you can place an international order. Please visit our International Sales site to find out more.

  • We are happy that you want to apply for an internship with us. We are always looking for future colleagues who have a desire to learn about our business.

  • There are lots of interesting topics for students writing their theses. You may even be able to do an assignment for us.

  • Inter IKEA Group has a clear code of conduct. Bullying, discrimination, fraudulent or corrupt activities, environmental violations or other breaches of laws or regulations are not tolerated. If you have a concern, we would really like to hear from you.
