Let’s Play For Change – play is a basic need
At IKEA we are serious about play. So serious that we carry out and publish some of the world’s most extensive research on the subject in the IKEA Play Report. Play is so important that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child recognises it as one of children’s basic human rights. Sadly, many children around the world lack safe spaces to play. IKEA Foundation is teaming up with six leading children’s rights organisations and together with IKEA put play at the heart of a new good cause campaign – Let’s Play For Change.

The IKEA Life at Home Report 2017
We travelled to 22 countries and connected with more than 22,000 people in order to understand how people really feel about life at home. We found five big battles that people all over the world are having when the things we own, and the spaces and places we define, are at odds with the people we live with. We don’t think it has to be this way, so that’s why this year’s report is called Beating the Battles.

The IKEA Concept
At the heart of the IKEA concept is our vision - to create a better everyday life for the many people.
At IKEA, we believe that design is for everyone. We strive to create products that are beautiful, functional, sustainable, high quality and affordable. Like the LISABO coffee table in ash veneer, winner of the international Red Dot award for design.
Democratic Design
We feel good design combines form, function, quality, sustainability at a low price. We call it “Democratic Design” - we believe good home furnishing is for everyone.
We believe in choosing materials responsibly, and we aim for renewable, recycled or recyclable resources whenever possible.
