Ratings and reviews

Perfect desk for my use.SusanPerfect desk for my use. Great value.5
MrMike007Good product. Assembly was easy but you have to pay close attention to the instructions as there are NO written words, only pictures. Some common sense working with wooden projects is helpful.4
Great little desk and good value!TerryLloydI bought this for my wife to work at home. We have many other Hemnes products, so we knew what to expect with this one. The height is standard for a desk (I measured it and compared to 2 other desks in our house), so I don't understand the other reviews that are critical of the height. Although, it is not as wide or as deep as most standard desks, but this suited our needs perfectly. Also, I did not experience any issues with the drawer, as other reviewers posted. The drawer on my unit works perfectly. One great little feature that is not listed or apparent in the instructions is a little hidden shelf behind the drawer that fits a power bar perfectly. This allows power cords to be tucked away neatly, as opposed to having an unsightly nest of wires on the floor below the desk! I highly recommend this desk to anyone looking for a slightly compact work area.5
perfect office tableSye2005very easy to assemble, and very easy to use5
Love it!!Dlh1Beautiful desk. Love colour. Little too low however. A few inches taller would make a big difference. Also, drawer does not glide smoothly. Hard to open4
Very hard assembly, not great productDinaufggfvggTook forever to assemble and the drawer and is hard to close and open. There’s a support board that I keep hitting my knee on. It’s a nice looking desk and fits in small places2
Bad drawer allignmentDissatisfied customerDrawer doesnt open and close proplerly, when you pull it out or push it back in the drawer always come off the rail. After hours following the intrustions and the result is very poor, very dissapointed. For some reason there is a big gap for the drawer and the allignment.1
DnunesThe desk works good... one thing I would have liked for it to have a hole for the cables when hooking up a computer4
Kid"s deskToast0828I just bought this desk week ago. It took lots of time to install. The top piece of the desk is uneven. I didn't return it back because i was just too tired to do so. I was exhausted after installing the desk.3
Great deskAnonymous reviewerGreat desk for any space small or large. I have this in my room and love it.5
Complete Let DownCrazy for A DealI love the Hemnes Line but this piece isn't at all the same quality I was expecting. I have almost all the Hemnes products and this desk was a Complete Let Down. The Drawer is too small and is cheaply made so it doesn't operate smoothly at all and the height should be a bit taller to accommodate the drawer and leg room instead it's too short under the drawer so you can't comfortably pull yourself in to feel comfortable. Not at all what I expected in a Ikea product.1
Hemmed DeskEMPJWMWe bought this in October 2017. I love it. Perfect size. It fits my printer and still has plenty of space to spread out when I'm working.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.
