I just visited their website, it seems to be mostly set in Arial.
You seem to not have Verdana installed.
Ikea Germany is completely in Verdana.
First I checked out the IKEA Iceland site, then the worldwide IKEA site .
Neither is using Verdana.
I have to say, the german website looks a lot better though. Verdana is great web type.
Wow. Disappointing. With all the 'hullabaloo' about this verdana stuff, I sided with Ikea. Sure, verdana is not a great type for print, but it works, right? Besides, its risky and taboo.. cutting edge! And while it grates some people the wrong way... "watch the needle!" I said. "This change will help Ikea's bottom line!"
Now they veer from the game plan.
I feel betrayed. I think I'll sit on the floor today in protest.
Verdana has a lot of good qualities, but it hasn't been "cutting edge" since the 90s.
