Perfect rugNicolaWe are so happy with this rug. It is perfect, light enough to allow the room to feel airy but the flecks of grey and black means that the dogs don’t immediately make it look dirty.
The deep pile is also very lush5

Green carpetAntoniHad a lovely moment with my green carpet. Very vibrant. Feels like I’m in a tropical rain forest and I was meandering through with the carpet feeling like freshly mowed tundra. Magical experience!5
Lovely rugMichelleVery thick pile and colours that go with most colour schemes as it is very neutral but still makes an impact due to the dark flecks. I wish there was a larger rug for my dining room.5

Beautiful RugCawmlovely rug with thick soft pile. Dampens the sound of our wooden floors and really feels like it was very expensive.5
Best out there for the priceNobenussI brought the vindum rug in the blue/green colour last year and loved it, unfortunately it didn't match my new decor and I didn't hesitate to buy the same rug in a different colour. This rug is off white with flecks of silver, beige and black and would match most colour schemes (mine is pale blue and natural).5
Life moves down onto the rug
More activities are hosted in the living room today since it’s more changeable and fluid. The sofa has changed in design and become more flexible – we even lie on it and sometimes we sit against it. That's why we decided to make a new rug with new proportions and a softer feel. We went on a mission and studied weaving techniques in detail, tested qualities and various samples with our bare feet until we created a rug that met all the new needs. The result is VINDUM rug.
In traditional living rooms, often centred around the TV, we've seen the rug placed in front of the sofa together with a coffee table. But this is beginning to change.
Today, the sofa is not only for sitting on. When it's full of family and friends, we're happy to move onto the rug and use the sofa as back support.
Detailed studies - without shoes
This places new demands on the rug.
”It’s on its way to becoming a second sofa”, says designer Maja Ganszyniec. ”So it must be really cosy to sit and lie on while also being aesthetically pleasing”.
Maja and her colleagues started to study different thicknesses and designs.
”I became quite the rug nerd”, says Maja enthusiastically, remembering a visit at a supplier in Belgium. ”My favourite meeting was when we were eight adults walking around in socks and sitting on various rug samples to find the one with the right feel”.
The cosy hub of the home
The work eventually led to VINDUM, with a thick, dense pile where features of differing colours create exciting effects.
”It’s kind of like when you gaze at a painting from various angles”, explains Maja.
VINDUM has a more square shape than most other rugs. With the various sizes, you can easily find a perfect combination to suit your sofa. We hope it’ll become a loved feature in many homes. As a kind of ”cosy hub”. A nice and sound-absorbing place to gather all of your friends.
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted.
Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material.
Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse.
PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil.
PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
Put together your own rug
With rugs in the VINDUM series, you can put together a rug that suits the shape of your sofa. You can create a long rug or a broad one – or one that is both. You easily hide the edges with the thick, high pile.
”I became quite the rug nerd when I was creating VINDUM rugs. I even walked around in socks on different rugs to find the right feeling. The thick, dense pile has small features of differing colours which make the impression shift depending on where you’re looking from, kind of like a painting. The shape means that you can easily put various sizes together and create a rug that suits your own sofa. I hope it will be quite a ”cosy hub” for you and your friends.”
