IKEA Product Loan Service


Thank you for your interest in IKEA home furnishings and accessories. For your convenience, outlined below is an overview of the procedures for product loan requests for both print media and television. Due to the high volume of daily requests with tight deadlines, it’s not possible for us to accommodate all requests and IKEA does not guarantee fulfilment of all IKEA product image and product loan requests.

Requests to borrow products for use as props will not be entertained. IKEA defines the use of products as props when the product is used as decoration or embellishment in a story without proper crediting and/or when the product(s) featured are not the focus of the story.

Product loan guidelines


All IKEA product loans require authorisation from the IKEA Press Office.

For any queries regarding Product loans please contact media.lounge.uk@ikea.com

If you feature and IKEA product in your publication that has been loaned, please include a brand credit to IKEA (our company spelling is always capitalised). Please include the details of any changes to an IKEA product loan featured so readers are aware that the product has been modified.

IKEA press office reserves the right to decline a product loan request .

Requesting a product loan


All loan requests should be emailed to the press office on media.lounge.uk@ikea.com.

It is important to include the following information for television media within the email to establish whether you will be successful:
