Ikea have been naughty! Selling ‘leather’ chairs made out of plastic!

Ikea have been naughty! Selling ‘leather’ chairs made out of plastic!

IKEA in the UK & Australia have been caught selling chairs on the leather section of their website that are actually made from 75% polyester, cotton and polyurethane.

Consumer groups in Australia first noticed the trick but similar groups in the UK have spotted the same ‘mistake’ over here,

EKERÖ armchairs were featured in the leather armchairs sections whilst the Kivik, a two-seater chaise with ‘contact areas’ was featured in the leather sofas sections.

It seems that the ‘errors’ / ‘tricks’ have now been changed so hopefully just an honest mistake and not a company trying to hide information from consumers.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
