The Real Meaning Behind Popular IKEA Product Names

The names IKEA uses for their products may seem strange, and the direct translations may be a bit off at times, but most IKEA names are perfectly appropriate for the product.

Take the BILLY bookcase and ELLY kitchen tea towels for example- the designs are supposed to be youthful and whimsical, so they were given popular names for kids.

The DUKTIG line translates to “capable”, which is how kids feel when they play with the tiny kitchen set, and this colorful plastic dinnerware below is appropriately named KALAS, the Swedish word for “party”.
