Owning IKEA furniture is practically a rite of passage for millennials leaving their college dorms behind and couples sharing the first apartment.
The company releases some 2,500 new products annually, but since the Swedish ready-to-assemble furniture company was founded in 1943, some favorite products have emerged and stood the test of time. The Poäng armchair just celebrated its 40th birthday, while a Billy bookcase is sold every 10 seconds somewhere in the world.
We asked IKEA to point us towards the company's most popular products of all time. These are not necessarily the best-selling overall — it’s hard to calculate that since not all products are sold internationally and some have a limited release — but rather the top-selling products in an array of individual categories, like armchairs or bed frames.
Take a look.
