Beautiful rugs!LaurieI purchased 2 large Vindum rugs for the living room. I have new vinyl wood floors, so I needed a very large area rug under the chairs and sofa so they don't slide on and damage the new floors. I couldn't find 1 affordable attractive rug large enough. 2 Vindum rugs side by side are perfect! The high pile hides where the 2 rugs meet in the middle, and the furniture keeps the rugs in place. They feel great under bare feet, light neutral color goes well with the decor, color variation in the rugs so they don't show dirty paw prints (we've have a solid month of rain). Great look, quality and value, just what I expect from Ikea. And quick on time delivery too!5

Great RugNicoleThe colors are great, the rug is soft. There was a strong odor when I placed it, but it went away within a day or so of placing it. I haven't vacuumed it yet, so I'm not sure how that will go as it is a pretty high pile.5
Great RugLorenWe love the look of the rug and the feel on our toes. The corners lay flat quickly (1 or 2 days of weights).5

Terrible smell that wont go awayElora C.I have had it out in the sun for days, put baking soda ad vacuumed it, sprayed it with lemon essential oils.
I love the look so much but unfortunately I will need to return whenever I can make another 3 hour trip each way. Very disappointing. I cant breathe and Im sure those aren't just “smells” but toxic poisons off gassing.2

Life moves down onto the rug
More activities are hosted in the living room, 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 centered 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 cozy 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 favorite 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 cozy hub of the home
The work eventually led to VINDUM, with a thick, dense pile where features of differing colors 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 ”cozy hub”. A nice and sound-absorbing place to gather all of your friends.
Only recycled or renewable plastics
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 plastics
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 fits 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 colors 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 ”cozy hub” for you and your friends."
