Ratings and reviews

Super quick deliverytinaWe have tons of Hemnes furniture, so we knew we would be happy with the tall bookcase. I would like to add that the shipping was really reasonable and the delivery time was super quick:)5
Hemnes bookcaseSueEasy to assemble and perfect in a small space!5
Nice PieceJonathanNice solid piece. Overpriced ? Well yeah. But hey I decided to buy it so it’s on me. Easy to assemble as usual with IKEA stuff.4
Great 👍🏻JULIEGreat 👍🏻5
Not worth the priceParisa V.Extremely disappointed with the quality of this product, considering the price. Especially how the back of the bookcase is secured. I get that it’s “Ikea quality” but one of the parts was even missing the proper holes to install the shelves. Had to drill them in myself. Very flimsy and wobbly, even when properly secured to the wall. It was one of the better bookshelves in this style Ikea had to offer, but I would never recommend it to anyone else.2

JennqThis fits perfectly in my space. Exactly what I was looking for.5
Perfect bookshelfToutyI just love it! Is perfect in my room.5
Different generation Hemnes lineAlexDeviant794Was simple to put together. One of my easiest assemblies. I like how the panels are pre-done, but unfortunately are difficult to fit in a car. I was able to fit it in my Toyota Matrix, seats down and on the center console.5
Solid cabinetAndirae76Bought 2 for my Dining room. Needed something that didn’t have a structural back so I could leave my barn board wall showing through the shelves. These worked out perfect on either side of my hutch. Only thing I wish is that there was an option for a glass door.5
nrnerfguyNice piece of furniture with stable shelves and lots of room for storage.5
Exactly what I"m looking for, not missing holesLainey24This unit is exactly the size I needed; slim for a small area, but yet taller than other slim models that tend to be small overall. I will say that it was very easy to put together, except for one snag. As I was putting in the bottom shelf, I thought it was missing 2 holes needed on one side to put pegs in as mentioned in some reviews. However, I quickly realized this is because I switched the pieces (I put the piece with the holes on the top bar). Looking back, the instructions do allude to this but I missed the meaning of that picture. Suggestion to Ikeas is to highlight that picture. It was not fun disassembling most of it, when you are almost done. For this, it is worth Ikea labeling the parts. Also, for putting in the wall anchors, I also think the unit should have pre-drilled holes - it was not easy to screw in holes at that height and angle. All in all, still a great looking unit and perfect for my space5

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 solid wood?

Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
