2,700 square feet of outdoor furnishings at Ikea have been donated to a family in China, according to the company.
The company, which manufactures outdoor furniture in Sweden, said in a statement that the “ultimate gift” was a 4th generation outdoor furniture set that was donated to the family of a Swedish student in Shanghai.
The family, whose name was not disclosed, received the furniture from a friend in China in late January, Ikea said.
Ikea also said it would donate an additional 2,000 square feet to a local Chinese family in the future.
The move was announced Wednesday by Ikea’s president of business operations, Anders Haug, in a blog post.
Ikeas outdoor furniture has been in the news lately.
Last week, Ikeas new founder and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said Ikea has donated a total of 7,500 square feet in its China warehouse to families and friends.
The furniture was donated by Ikeas founder Jens Stoll in March.
“The world’s most famous outdoor furniture maker is so proud to be supporting the families of Shanghai and the Chinese people, and will donate this unique and inspiring outdoor furniture,” Haug wrote.
