IKEA launches wireless charging furniture

IKEA has launched a range of furniture with built in wireless charging spots as it looks to make the process of charging smartphones at home more convenient and discreet.

The range features a selection of products with integrated charging pads for every room in the house including floor, table and work lamps, and bedside tables as well as charging pads to be used on any surface.

The wireless range has been created, developed and designed in IKEA’s central design hub at its headquarters in Älmhult in Sweden.    

Jeanette Skjelmose, IKEA business area manager for lighting and wireless charging, said: ”Through research and home visits, we know that people hate cable mess. They worry about not finding the charger and running out of power. Our new innovative solutions, which integrate wireless charging into home furnishings, will make life at home simpler.”  

The wireless charging range will be available in UK IKEA stores and online from mid-April.
