Fantastic deskStefanieLove the Alex desk in this colour goes in my craft room beautifully 😍5
Looks niceKarenI like this desk a lot but there are 2 things that annoy me. 1. The screw heads provided for the drawers are wrong. They get stuck when the draw is about 10cm out and you have to wrench it open past that point. I'm hoping this will loosen over time with repeated use. 2. Not all plugs fit in the back cable hole. Because I use a new power board with built in usb points that's a bit bulkier, some of the plugs are too tall to fit and the lid doesn't close. Not the desks fault but something I didn't consider before I purchased and I wish I had.3
Alex deskMaryGreat size and just perfect for where I placed it.5
It goodIsabelThe table is good but the drawers do not come out all the way which is frustrating as it renders almost half of the drawer useless. I use the desk for study and make up but the top of the table is low in quality with already 3 chips on the top.3

Right size and nice designEdwinThis desk is perfectly suit my need specially the 2 drawers for my 2 laptop and the cable hatch. I just hope there was an adjustable height desk similar to this one either annual or electric.5

Computer deskValerieReally like the back section to hide all the cables. Desk is sturdy and works well with good sized drawers.5
Updating a computer deskAlastairIt was well overdue! Updating my computer desk! A research visit to the IKEA site quickly came up with the ALEX desk as a desired alternative. Lesson 1: Never visit IKEA on the first Saturday afternoon of the school holidays! Lesson 2: The instruction assembly booklet that comes with the ALEX (and all other DIY assembly) is FANTASTIC! No spare parts were left over when the installation was complete! Love the colour. Love the useful rear panel to stash away all those power cords and computer cables. Love the roomy desk drawers.4
Professional deskRobynGood sized desk that allows me to work and spread out Excellent draws space Very happy5
The drawers are an annoyanceCelNeeded a narrow office desk for my small room and this Alex did the trick. I have a monitor riser so I can tuck keyboard beneath it and stretch out my arms a bit further to make myself a bit more comfortable, doesn't bother me much as I touch type. The only qualms I have with this product is that the drawers stopped sliding smoothly after several months of use. Given that there's not much inside of of them I expected them to do better.4
Very happyMalGood size for a monitor and two laptops plus exercise book5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.


What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
