Ikea Sweden initially will offer around 700 products through the Web store, which can be viewed at the link below.

The site is the first in a series that is planned to cover most of Ikea's international markets.

"This is the first launch in a long continued effort within Ikea to embrace the Internet and e-commerce," Nils Larsson, Ikea Sweden's Internet manager, said in the statement.

Ikea was founded in 1943 by Swedish entrepreneur Ingvar Kamprad. Inter Ikea Systems is the Netherlands-based owner and franchisor of the international chain of Ikea stores, spanning 30 countries worldwide.

The privately held company reported total sales of 16.95 billion Dutch guilders (US$7.1 billion) for its 1998/99 financial year, according to information from the company's Web site.
