Right now at IKEA
Let’s play – it’s vital for all of us.
Play is for everyone, every day – when we do it we connect, create, recharge, escape and explore. That’s why, during our IKEA Let’s Play for Change campaign, we’ve made our stores playful places to be. Because we want to show you how play makes everyday life more playful.
Play is so vital that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child declares that every child has a right to it. Yet millions of children across the world are denied this fundamental right to play and develop in a safe, secure environment. Through our Let’s Play for Change campaign, the IKEA Foundation has partnered with six leading organisations to provide even the most vulnerable children with safe places where they can play, develop and simply enjoy being kids.

We know play
Our third IKEA Play Report is part of the world’s largest body of research on play, so you could say we’re play geeks. With this knowledge we created a mini guide to inspire play at home – and designed our Children’s IKEA range so it’s playful and smart.
Play Points to spark play
Our stores are currently full of fun Play Points, designed to inspire you to connect, create, recharge, escape and explore. We hope you’ll get lost in the joy of play, finding out why it’s vital for all of us and how simple it is to carry on the fun at home.

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.
