From pre-loved to re-loved: we’re giving IKEA furniture a second life

A circular economy starts with a BILLY bookcase (or INGO table, or NORRARYD chair)

Every year, millions of pieces of secondhand furniture go to waste. That’s why we’re buying back used IKEA furniture, to give chairs, shelves or chests of drawers as many lives as possible.

IKEA Second Life

With our buy back and resell service it’s never been easier to re-use, recycle and reduce. Simply fill out a form online to get a quote on your old IKEA furniture. Then bring it to your nearest IKEA store where one of our co-workers will check its condition and confirm the final valuation. In return, you get IKEA credit to spend on something you need or love.

Did you know?

In 2019, IKEA gave 47 million recovered products a second life.

Better homes and a better world

When we look to improve our homes, we all need to consider how to reduce our impact on the planet. Does a piece of furniture really need replacing? Could it be given a second life? Our buy back and resell service is one of the ways we are making it easier and more affordable to live more sustainably.

Fully circular by 2030

We’re committed to being a fully circular business by 2030. To reach this goal, we create products that can be used and re-used for many years to come, right up until it’s time to recycle them and start again.
