IKEA is launching a new concept store that will sell used, secondhand furniture that has been refurbished for purchase.
The store, which will open in Sweden, is part of IKEA’s pledge of going completely circular by 2030.

IKEA, the Swedish retailer known for its self-assembly affordable furniture is now offering a whole new approach to outfitting our interiors.
The company’s first-ever secondhand furniture store will open later this year in Sweden’s ReTuna mall. The retail complex only welcomes stores that sell used and refurbished items. As per a report from The Local, the IKEA secondhand store will sell previously owned furniture and home goods. Note that everything will have bee refurbished prior to being sold in the store.
This store is part of a larger scheme by IKEA to become completely circular by 2030. According to Fast Company, IKEA already launched a program to lease its kitchens and furniture last year, and many of its stores also have “bargain” sections of refurbished returned items. This, however, will be the first store completely made up of refurbished items.
IKEA did not provide further information, but it easy to understand why a secondhand store makes sense for the brand. IKEA is trying to move from the perception that it is the fast fashion of furniture, with low-cost items that are built for only a few years before they get tragically dumped on the pavement.
