Every year, IKEA tunes into the way people around the world live at home and how this is changing. We’ve found that home is becoming more and more fluid, as people use their homes in new ways, and are having more ‘home-like’ experiences outside of their own four walls.
We believe this new openness about how people live can be exciting and fulfilling when done right, but can also lead to feelings of unease and uncertainty. The Life at Home Report 2018 explores these themes and the ways we can all live our best home lives together.
We love wood and always look for ways to use it wisely, sourcing it according to high set standards. HAVSTA, a new storage family made from solid wood with its roots in Scandinavian design and craftsmanship, is an example of that. Our long-term goal is that all the wood we use will come from more sustainable sources by 2020.
Good news for all chocolate lovers! BELÖNING is a new series of delicious, premium quality dark chocolate and milk chocolate products, made from cocoa that was responsibly grown. Read more here about how you can make a difference for both cocoa farmers and for the environment by choosing UTZ certified chocolate.
We have made a commitment to only use cotton grown in a responsible way in our products, for the benefit of our customers and the planet. LEIKNY cushion cover is a great way to add a new floral touch to your home, and knowing that it’s made from 100% more sustainable cotton makes it even more beautiful!
