About This Quiz

IKEA is a Swedish-founded multinational group that is known for designing and selling home accessories, kitchen appliances, and various types of furniture that buyers can assemble on their own. Founded over 75 years ago, the company is one of the world's largest furniture retailers in the world.

Apart from being known for their environmental friendly pieces, the company is also famous for the unique names that they give to their pieces. Being that the company is from Sweden, some strange names are expected, but not to the level where it is difficult to pronounce. Some of the pieces' names are so out of the box that many people have likened them to spells from the Harry Potter universe and recommend the use of a wand when attempting to say it.

If you were given different names, would you be able to tell if it was the name of a piece of furniture from IKEA or if it was a spell from Harry Potter? Well, this quiz was designed to test just that. Will it reveal that you are a Harry Potter fan or will it show that you need to do some more work in that department? Test your knowledge to find out!
