In allegations not confirmed in court, ZAU said that the relationship between the companies continued until 2010, and Ikea \"unilaterally reduced the price of products purchased from manufacturing suppliers significantly, including ZAU \", it should be known that this will\" cause them to be overwhelmed \".
The claim statement seeks to negate the original purchase agreement, citing \"the power imbalance and dependency between Ikea and ZAU, this is what Ikea nurtured and encouraged when it asked ZAU to use most of its production efforts and resources for Ikea . . . . . . \", The negotiation process is a process of \"either accepting or giving up\" and ZAU is now completely dependent on Ikea and forced to sign any contract that Ikea needs . . . . . . .

Throughout the business relationship, Ikea fulfilled its contractual obligations.

They keep moving to accommodate the growing business, including cushions for wicker furniture.
In 1988, they received the first contract from Ikea to make leather cushions for the comfortable Poang chair.
