CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - IKEA has not launched and is not selling prefabricated homes in the United States. Any reports saying otherwise are not accurate.

One of our U.S. stores, IKEA Portland, has participated in a collaboration with an Oregon-based prefab studio -- ideabox ( www.ideabox.us ) -- where a version of one of ideabox's pre-fab homes is being sold with IKEA items (ie., wardrobes, kitchens, etc.). Interior designers from IKEA Portland helped furnish the interior of this particular home, and an example was on display at the recent Portland Home & Garden Show. Each home of this type sold by ideabox will include those same IKEA products that the local prefab studio will have purchased from IKEA Portland.

To make clear: IKEA is neither the manufacturer nor the retailer of these prefabricated homes. Any specific interest in this particular home, the ideabox concept or its prefab products should be directed to Jim Russell at ideabox: (503) 510-4789.

For IKEA inquiries not addressed by this statement, please contact Joseph Roth, IKEA U.S. Public Affairs: (610) 834-0180, x6500.
