Outstanding Ads of ikea

Posted on: May 21, 2006

ikea's advertising strategy is outstanding. I gather best of ikea ads from several resourses to inspire brandplanner or just enjoy it. As you see below, they are surprizing, colorful and overall very cool. If you enjoy them, please digg the story.

In anticipation of the grand opening of the Ikea Funabashi Store (Japan), Ikea placed 14 of these outdoor showroom displays along the sides of a street in Aoyama. They are calling the showcase Ikea 4.5 Musuem, which refers to the size of 4 and a half tatami mats. (via advertisingforpeanut and billboardom)

A very impressive collection of photos. Speaking of IKEA’s commericals, I recall that I particularly liked the advertising which was going on some summer (was it 2005 really?)on the German TV. Have you ever seen it or heard of it? It included short funny episodes about stereotypical Swedish life (such as Midsummer eve celebration with lots of home-made alcohol for example), which were not overly appealing, and concluded by saying that luckily, they only bring the best of Sweden – the IKEA! There is always a risk of hurting someone’s feelings by such commercials, but I think it was accepted with due humour, and personally, I enjoyed it a lot.

Great site….Ever come across a commercial for Ikea Fabrics? It featured a covered wagon being shot at by ‘indians’….various ‘ugly surrender flags’ would be waved, and a mass of arrows would be shot at the ugly fabrics…When nice IKEA fabrics were flown, the arrows stopped….I was one of a handful of archers hired to strategically shoot the covered wagon. I never saw the finished product (not sure if the commercial ever aired). It would have been filmed near Toronto in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Any insight would be very welcome.

Great collection. A bubby of mine is responsible for the furnished bus stops. That was actually done in NYC. He tells me there’s many more cool Ikea stuff on the way.

Interesting. I’ll have to throw down a bookmark and check back.
