Just what I was lookingChristineJust what I was looking for.5
Perfect corner deskNEIGEI really love its soothing green- gray colour. The space to hide wires is genius. Its very neat and functional.5
Great desk for smaller spaces!SARAHNeeded a smaller desk for another room in our home and this one was a perfect fit when most desks were a bit too big. Lots of drawer space and the cord-hiding compartment nice hid a charging station which allows for my workspace. Only gave 4 stars because there were two pieces of hardware missing but luckily we had an entire hoard of spare ikea parts and had those two missing pieces that saved us a trip back to the store or the wait to get the pieces mailed.4

Great little desk!MonicaGreat little desk!5
Size is RightDONNAWe like the looks and size of the desk. The only issue we have is with the flip up section. If it lifted from back to front instead of front to back, we would not lose as much desk space.4
Modern looking. Very open.Vikas C.Nice stable desk. Feels minimalistic because it has strong crisp frame around a really clean top. I use mine without the drawers allowing me to keep essentials in the two drawer spaces. Size is also really well thought out. I use for hand written work, book reading and drawings.5

Compact deskVickiNice little desk for our daughter.5
Would give it 5 stars,APRILLEWould give it 5 stars, but some of the pieces didn’t align and the instructions were not as clear as it could’ve been. Overall it’s a great looking desk though and the perfect size for me.4
Good for small spaceMIUI bought it because the electric cord of all the devices could be hided in a little storage underneath. However, the area of the table top was a little too small for putting my large monitor, keyboard and a table lamp.4
It’s very nice desk. IZULAIt’s very nice desk. I really like 2 drawers and cords storage.5

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 a 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.
