Tvarfot lampTomSmall but powerful by the bed or on the dresser5
Great for any size roomJenniferWe purchased this for our daughter's room and she loves it. We may purchase another one for our living room.5
Perfect lamp KimI was looking for some really small lamps I could use in a guest bedroom instead instead of a night lite and these little guys did the trick! 5
Adorable lampLisaLooks great in kitchen- grab a bulb at ikea- it is an odd size5
Sun Room Addition -- Works Brilliantly!KarlPerfect size -- the lamp adds a bright spot in the sun room after the sun sets.5
Perfect little lampPamelaI needed a small lamp for a shelf on one of my bookcases, this was perfect! Super cute, squat little lamp. Love it. Plan on getting another one.5
Lamp really doesn’t fit in the socketYexinI bought this lamp with IKEA’s recommended bulbs last week. After I installed the bulb, I found that the bulb merely touch to the socket of the lamb, and it sticked out which made the light extremely bright to my eyes, then I tried to screw the bulb deeper so that the lampshade can block the light, however, the lower metal part detached from the bulb itself and stuck firmly to the socket. I tried hard to finally move it out and installed the only other E12 bulb, same thing happened again, and this time the bulb didn’t even illuminate after plugging in the power. In a nutshell, the recommended bulbs have non-matched specifications with the lamb and have low quality, so was the design of the lampshade as well.1
Great style!RaymondPair of these looks good in my bedroom. The light is just right but I wonder if there are other lightbulb options available...smart bulbs would be cool...5
Great little bedside lampJacquiSuper little lamp for a bedside table. It is not too big but gives off enough light. Easy to assemble only one part to move in order to put the shade on and used the two pack IKEA bulbs5
Cheaply madeLindie R.This lamp is cute but, I would not advise for anyone to buy. I bought this lamp and when I got home the base of it was broken, went back to the store an exchanged it for a new one. Got that one home and the bulb attachment to the base was broken. Now I have to go back AGAIN. Ridiculous!!!1
LampLisaNice little task lamp that I placed in my kitchen.5
Ask Me About My Miserably Failed DeliveryKenHorrible experience!!!3
Tiny delightAnnaLove this little lamp. Perfect for winding down in the bedroom. Emits a very “hyggelig” light.5
Nice little lamp. Unusual bulbDavidI love the look of the lamp, but the E12 LED bulb required is unique. Ikea would not include it in the shipping unless I ordered a much higher dollar amount. I found one at my hardware store, but it just barely sits below the top edge of the lampshade.3
Perfect size lampChristineJust what I was looking for, simple and clean esthetic. Perfect size too.5
Over all look is goodSyedOver all look is good but the lamp body was so tightly fitted into the package that it broke in taking it out. I thought it was some metal or any other stronger material.3
Perfect little lamp!AnikaI've been looking for a bright, small lamp for ages and this one is perfect for the space. It was very easy to put together out of the box, it's bright, and looks great.5
Great for any size roomJenniferWe purchased this for our daughter's room and she loves it. We may purchase another one for our living room.5
Perfect for a small spaceAnessaI've been looking for a good, small lamp for months to go on our rather small nightstands. These get the job done! Just make sure to find the right size lightbulb or it'll show at the top.5
NiceMinhBought it as the night stand. Highly recommended!!!5

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.

Material

What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
