By using sawmill leftovers and scrap wood in the particle board in this product, we make use of whole trees and not only the trunks. That way, we take better care of resources.
We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.

Un côté non finiNathalie G.L'arrière n'a pas de panneau de finition. Alors vraiment pas joli sur un bureau de travail au milieu d'une pièce. J'aurais aimé payer un peu plus chère et avoir la possibilité d'installer un panneau de finition supplémentaire.2
Mixed feelingsCarolineWe put this between our desk table and drawers, looks great but the drawers are way less deep than expected.
So, not as functional as expected to be!4
I am using this aLarryI am using this a a monitor riser on my desk as monitor risers were out of stock for several weeks. The Drawers do not pull out far enough to conveniently access the back of the drawers.3

Great shelf and storage spacemsqqqLove this storage shelf. I actually use it as an addition to my desk, as a storage unit for my desk essentials (pens, staples, etc); and it is the perfect height for my second monitor. It is easy to assemble and the drawers open and close easily.5
Storage drawersBillbeeIt said it was a shelf but I used it to put under the computer monitor for storage. It was the perfect fit to the top of my desk as well. even the keyboard fits inside the drawer. Great product.5

Perfect floating shelfDivya89We wanted a console table but when we saw this it gave us an idea of floating shelf and it looks amazing in the entry hallway5
Used this item as countertop TV standJ SmithThis unit was purchased to serve as a counter top TV stand. The TV needed to be raised a few inches for viewing clarity. The Ekby Alex shelf with drawers worked wonderfully well just sitting on the countertop, so no shelf brackets were installed. Additionally, the drawers function perfectly for the remotes and other TV paraphernalia. Love it.4
Perfect size and functionmisshiss23We live in a tiny space and use this shelf underneath our wall mounted tv. It holds our cutlery on one side and miscellaneous items in the other. We used three brackets underneath for extra support. Great product5
The perfect music shelf.RdPickettWe bought this as a shelf in our music area. It holds my guitar accessories and music books with plenty of room to spare. Love it5

Perfect for our kitchenzoyamarieWe bought this shelf to put our cookbooks on in our kitchen. It was easy to install and works perfectly for what we wanted it for.5
Modern look at a good priceAmandamandaI purchased this about a month ago to raise our tv from the stand we currently have. Other than it being very heavy and the drawers not as deep as I was point them to be, it’s a well made sturdy product.4
Keeps things tidyjudyjI stacked two together to keep my craft table tidy. Works great and looks good too.4
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.
