    Ikea gets real about why people discard its furniture to promote second-hand stores

    Swedish retail giant Ikea hopes to give a new lease of life to unwanted furniture with the introduction of its second-hand stores.

    Last year, Ikea Norway unveiled ‘The Trash Collection,’ which featured discarded furniture that was then upcycled in-store. This year it has taken it a step further and opened second-hand shops that buy back what you no longer need. 

    In the promo spot ‘The Life Collection 2022,’ viewers see various chairs, tables and drawers that have been discarded for different reasons. Perhaps there’s no longer room in the family home for them, the owner died or the business went bankrupt. It might seem a little bleak, but these are the realities of life.

    “We wanted to show how we understand that furniture isn’t necessarily useful forever,” said Roberto Giannone, global marketing manager at Ikea. “Our new second-hand stores are needed because life happens, and we needed a more sustainable way of treating our furniture.”
