It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Billy bookcaseSHERRIgreat product5
Please with BillyGerryVery attractive, overall a good product. My only suggestion would be some sort of levelling apparatus. I never realized my apartment floor sloped as much as it did. The safety brackets are a must!4
A very good purchase !’LOUISEI love the size, the color etc5
The colour is what sold itDAVIDGreat product, easy assembly, no issues with parts, matches our decor and the lights we bought too, highlights the cabinets and our possessions inside5
Very good productNICKVery good product4
Love the look of it!meghanLove the look of it!5
Just what I wanted!StoneycreekerBought the unit to display some collectibles of my husband’s as a surprise....we both love it. I put it together myself with little problem. Adjusting hinges always a challenge for me. Perfect colour for our family room.5
PerfectOsahaiaIt is very valuable compared to the cost5
Damaged Upon ReceiptThisHodgeI ordered this click and collect in Ontario. It is the only item in our $1000 order that had a small opening in the package it didn't seem to have any damage there. When i got home I noticed all of the box corners were crushed and there were small cuts and gashes in each exposed parts of the bookcase. I will try to exchange it tomorrow it is expensive and very heavy and we live far but I think it is worth the trip even though the damage is small. Right now they are not taking emails or chat. I have no way to contact them about this and there are long call holds before reaching customer service. I hope the exchange goes smoothly. I don’t like getting new things that even have something tiny wrong with them. I pay full price so I want it as the picture shows. Thanks.1
CloMi46Very satisfy. I buy 2 more and 2 other with red colour5
need to mount the back to the wallpaulfanThe furniture itself is okay, but need to mount on wall for safety4
Very top heavy. DangerousTop heavyI love the blue... The unit but it is one unit you must secure to the wall. Actually I am surprised these are still being sold. Too dangerous and designed is flaWed to topple over.3
Perfect kitchen storageGrendaJust finished putting this together. Fairly easy. And love it in my navy and gray kitchen. One little picky thing. After we slid the back in, and got it nailed on-when we turned it over, the back had a significant scratch on it, likely from an uneven surface that it slid over. So now, there is a whitish scratch on the backing. Luckily, it will likely be covered up with dishes, but still not a good thing. Ikea needs to make sure those unfinished edges on the bookcase are sanded with nothing that will stick out and scratch.4
Exactly what she wantedcdndaveWe picked this up for our daughter. It was very easy to assemble and the only thing that did not go perfect was one door was just a bit ajar. After about 3 minutes of adjusting and it too fit perfectly.5
Great place for my treasuresKyradogI bought the blue version of this product. I found it a little dark inside so I added some battery operated LED lights and now it is perfect.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 waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of 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. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
