IKEA Wants To Buy Your Furniture Back

Yes, you read that right. In a bid to become a completely circular and climate-positive business by 2030, the mega Swedish furniture retailer are stepping into notions of sustainability just in time for Black Friday – offering to buy back customers' unwanted IKEA pieces for up to 50% of the original price.

How does it work?

  1. Fill in an offer request online to sell back your items, with pieces eligible for Buy Back including; dressers, bookcases, dining tables, chairs and children's products.
  2. The Buy Back pieces are graded when traded in, with pieces categorised by"as new" gaining 50% of the original price, "very good" pieces at 40% and "well-used" pieces 30%.
  3. The furniture is then set to be resold in IKEA's As-is area, with anything that can't be sold either recycled or donated to community projects.

What are the brand saying?

"Being circular is a good business opportunity as well as a responsibility, and the climate crisis requires us all to radically rethink our consumption habits. Currently, 45 per cent of total global carbon emissions come from the way the world produces and uses everyday products, so Buy Back represents an opportunity to address unsustainable consumption and its impact on climate change" – Hege Sæbjørnsen, IKEA's country sustainability manager for the UK and Ireland.
