    It's called marketing.

    I always find Ikea Group of Companies and their complex organizational structure rather fascinating and interesting.

    They are one of the few corporations that directly control every single step of the industrial process from cultivation of raw feedstock / agriculture materials (cotton, forestry (lumber etc. etc.)) to primary and secondary production / manufacturing under Swedspan Holding B.V. and Swedwood Holding B.V. respectively.

    Not to mention the direct distribution, franchising, licensing, marketing and retailing whose responsibilities falls under Inter IKEA Systems B.V (owned by Inter IKEA Holding S.A. which is owned by Interogo Foundation) and Ingka Holding B.V.. Above all, all these and along with many other shell subsidiaries are owned by the supposedly non-profit Stichting Ingka Foundation in what is probably the most elaborate anti-takeover and tax evasion scheme ever devise.

    The model has a big nose, but in model shots, the nose look so prefect....... LOL

    lovely. a lawyer friend of mine is advising companies to protect their Intellectual Property (IP) by moving their IP via a sale into an IP holding company...which will then license back usage of said property to the seller...hence protecting the seller from claims upon the said property.

    Can't wait. I'm a fan of Mac vs PC advert series.
