Ikea is a European company that has stores all over the world, offering furniture that is both affordable and functional. The furniture, including the Kullen storage cabinet, is sold in disassembled form and must be assembled by the customer at home. According to Ikea, this saves the customer money and allows them to tote their purchases home, and in many cases without the need for a truck.
