What? IKEA smoking pipes? That Swedish company that sells inexpensive furniture with funny names? Yes! A member of the Dutch/Belgian Pipe Smokers Forum works there and he saw a picture on the IKEA museum site with smoking pipes! Of course I could not resist asking the museum if they knew where the pipes came from..
Hi Arno!
Thank you for your email. The pipes were sold at IKEA during the 1940s 1950s, they were not of our own make but from other suppliers and sold via mail order. I’m afraid we do not have a list of the suppliers but please see attached image from the mail-order catalogue from 1950 were pipes were sold.
Kind regards Moa

That was back in the olden days when smoking a pipe was seen as a sign of sophistication.

So many interesting "house pipes" have been mentioned on Forums including Disneyland and L.L. Bean. I think their merchandising appealed to the popularity of smoking in general but also the up-market image of pipes, not necessarily with wealth but with intelligence, Einstein and such.

Last Saturday I bought a pipe at an estate sale. The pipe is stamped Marshall Fields. Made in England.

We should be very thankful that IKEA does not sell pipes or tobacco. That place is a hell on earth.
And they do not stock Swedish death metal, so they are kind of useless anyway!

Ah, you have been there on a day in the weekend or a holiday? On those days even an At The Gates concert is more relaxing..
Victoria Secret pipe? I think something like this:
