IKEA getting into repairs, used furniture

Part of the path toward sustainability is to shift from products to services, move away from business models that require selling more of the world’s resources. Interface Carpet’s Evergreen Lease is the iconic example, leasing carpet tiles and taking them back to make new carpet.

Now IKEA is planning to grow by offering services, ways to update rather than replace furniture, and to sell used furniture. It also is working on sourcing only materials that are renewable or from recycled materials.
