Scandinavian 101: Do You Speak IKEA? [Quiz]

With more than 330 IKEA locations in 40 countries, Swedish home furnishings giant IKEA is slowly taking over our homes and offices worldwide. We’ve all seen the names given to each IKEA item in the store – they were created in place of item numbers to compensate for IKEA founder Ingvar Kampman’s dyslexia. But those words are not just a cute jumble of ö’s and å’s, most of them are Scandinavian in origin and actually mean something!

Can you guess the meaning of these IKEA names? Check your answers as you go along to see how you’re doing!
