Kamprad, 87, said he has retired from the IKEA board of directors. A few months ago, he insisted that there was no retirement plan and said "too busy, no time to die."

"I will continue to make suggestions and make suggestions. I will continue to spend time working in the store, in the factory and with the employees, to contribute to the company's continuous improvement. Our journey has only just begun."

IKEA said that the personnel changes on the board of directors are part of the company's “new and old replacements” and have been planned for many years, and Ingvarkamp Prad believes that leaving the board now is a “right time” for him.

The past and present of IKEA

Kamprad was born in Småland in southern Sweden. When he was young, he decided to start his own company. At first, he rode his bicycle to sell his matches to his neighbors. He found that batches from Stockholm could get matches at very cheap prices, and then sell them again, which would make a lot of profit. Later, his business continued to expand, selling fish, Christmas tree decorations, seeds, ballpoint pens and pencils. When he was 17 years old, his father gave him a graduation gift to help him create his own company. This is the origin of IKEA.
