Making furniture live longer

The potential to repurpose, refurbish, repair, reuse, resell and recycle will be built into every IKEA product, step by step over the next coming years. Already today there are easy ways to make your furniture last longer or give it a second life.

Get that just-new feeling whenever you want by washing or replacing your sofa cover for very little cost or effort.
