Most of IKEA’s furniture is crafted to be designed by the customer, instead of being sold pre-assembled. The company argues that this helps to minimize costs and use of shipping by not handling air; for example, the volume of a bookcase is slightly lower if it is delivered unassembled instead of assembled.

IKEA initiated a step into the smart home business in 2016. One of the first ranges to signal the transition was the IKEA TRADFRI smart lighting package. IKEA ‘s media team has confirmed a big move for the smart home project. They also set in motion collaboration with Philips Hue. Another method for the home automation business is the wireless charging furniture, integrating wireless Qi charging into everyday furnishings.
