If you’ve ever been mystified by the tongue-twisting Swedish names for IKEA products, the website IKEA in Swedish has pronunciations of some of the more daunting ones. Next time you need a bath faucet, you can ask for Kråkskär by name.
When a guy named Ingvar Kamprad founded Ikea, he decided to name the furniture with proper names and words, so it would be easier to remember.
Well, easier for Swedes. Too bad he didn’t predict his company would be all over the world, leaving the rest of us clueless when it comes to the names. So learn how Swedes pronounce them and stop sounding ridiculous.
