IKEA Furniture Buy-back: give things a second life
What is the IKEA Furniture Buy-back?
It is a short-term campaign, during which IKEA buys back IKEA furniture, which lie around your home and which you no longer need. This way we save planet and give furniture a second life. It is very easy to participate – just a few steps!
you can get a financial gain for getting rid of furniture you no longer need;
others can purchase the furniture for a significantly lower price;
the nature will appreciate the reduced furniture waste.
The furniture, which we buy back, will be taxed and will be sold at the reduced-price department of the store for the basic price plus VAT.
Does your IKEA furniture meet criteria of the Buy-back? To find out that and more, please carefully read the Terms and conditions before applying.

Better homes and a better world
When we look to improve the everyday life for the many people, we all need to consider how to reduce our impact on the planet. Does a piece of furniture really need replacing? Could it be given a second life? Our sell-back service is one of the ways we are making it easier and more affordable to live more sustainably.
Fully circular by 2030
We’re committed to being a fully circular business by 2030. To reach this goal, we create sustainable products that can be used and re-used for many years to come, right up until it’s time to recycle them and start again.
