Krapea

Krapea is a major furniture manufacturer in Grand Theft Auto IV. It is a parody of Swedish manufacturer IKEA. Similar to older IKEA stores, Krapea's stores feature a showroom and warehouse with a one-way layout and a cafeteria serving authentic Swedish cuisine. Krapea's logo resembles a three-legged stool, and their slogan is We fake it, you make it: afördable storage solutions. The company employs a spokes-model named Astrid; she is featured within the FAQs section of their website.

The company's name is a portmanteau of 'crap' & 'IKEA'; Instead of manufacturing high quality furniture out of durable materials, Krapea manufactures low grade furniture out of poor materials, such as driftwood or brittle plastic. According to the FAQ section, their products are damaged, missing parts, or have parts that don't fit together. Krapea also names their furniture after what they claim are Swedish curse words, thinking Americans are too stupid to realize. Some of the products depicted on the website are the "Slapdash" inflatable dining table and the "Shoddi" bed. The Krapea logo can be found on some Steed trucks. A Krapea store can be seen on the corner of Frankfort Avenue, and Hematite Street, in the construction site.
