  • The IKEA trademark is sometimes used without our permission. It is very important to us that our consumers are not misled, and that they can have confidence that all products bearing the IKEA trademark are genuine products.

    We therefore ask you to help us by reporting any wrongful use of the IKEA trademark or similar marks. We cannot give you any reward or compensation, but you will get a big thank you for your support in protecting the IKEA trademark and preventing fraud and misrepresentation.

    To report an infringement, please contact us. If you are also able to provide images or links with your report, that would be very helpful to us.

  • We tend to grant permission for 1) educational and training purposes (i.e. course literature) and 2) deserving causes. Material that does not fit under either of these categories is assessed on a case by case basis since we want to know the context in which the material will be used. We also tend to allow photographers to use their own photos for their own catalogues/books provided they do not use the IKEA trademark. If you want to apply for such permission, please contact us here.

  • IKEA stores are only allowed to sell within the country they are located. But, don’t worry there is a way. Visit our International Sales site to find out how.
