Product details

Each table has its own unique character due to the distinctive grain pattern.

The ash veneer table surface and solid birch legs add a warm, natural feeling to your room

Ash is a naturally durable material. The surface has been made even more hard-wearing by a protective coat of lacquer, which also helps it keep its natural wood feel.

Easy to assemble as each leg has only one screw.

Drawer stops prevent the drawers from being pulled out too far.

Sturdy desk with a beautifulSamanthaSturdy desk with a beautiful wood-like finish5
Amazing desk!MiriamI love my Lisabo. Resistant and minimal. It looks small but leaves room for everything I need, including a 24" IMac. The drawer in the middle could be shallower. I often bump my leg in there when I lift the chair seat.4
Perfect piece of furniture for a small bedroomParneetI love how easy it was to put together this table. Literally under 15 minutes I put everything together. The table top is heavy to please have another person assist you. I love it in my small bedroom.5

LISABO deskNels2020Purchased 2 LISABO desks for our kids. Simple desk with clean lines that the kids really enjoy.5
Perfect little desk_kateSturdy, perfect size for working from home. Took 10 minutes to assemble. I placed this desk at the window of my small bedroom and couldn’t have wished for a better set up. I have two work laptops and this desk fits both nicely with room to spare for note taking and my coffee.5
Not as good as I expectedJasonLiuIt is so easy to build and very firm, stable and steady. I am impressed for sure compare with others. However, I was expecting the table top surface is clean and doesn't have much dark color to it. After I opened it, I was shock. It has a half table large kind of dark wood texture cross the table from left to right. The bottom surface is even clear than the top surface, the color is more even and doesn't have much dark texture on the bottom. Mine looks worse than the one in the Ikea show room.Don't really expect that for a table cost $150 after tax.3
Perfect study deskheneggTMGreat addition to the living room! Goes well with the BALTSAR chair. Easy instructions, easy assembly. Perfect if you need a new desk for studying.5
Cathe TJust what I needed! I love my desk :)5
stylish and solid deskkaba2020LISABO is a very nice desk. It has a light and airy feel and look to it, but is built sturdily. In contrast to many other desks in this price range, it is solid wood. Wood grain of the table top is beautiful. Easy to put together. We were impressed by the quality and value for money. Its small size makes it perfect for a small space. One of those items where you go: Yeah, Ikea5
Beautiful design and great valuepgkhThis desk looks beautiful and the finish and lines are those of a more expensive piece. Extremely easy to assemble and perfect for small spaces. Only modification I would make is that the drawer sometimes will be hit by knees if crossing legs or moving desk chair up.5
MazerunnerPerfect size, easy to assemble, and looks great!5
Perfect work deskKauiI bought this a month ago since we were pushed to work from home due to COVID. Absolutely in love with the minimalistic, sleek Bamboo finish5
Very nice and good cheap deskTheJAMEverything you want from a small desk5
Needs matte black colour (fingerprint resistant)ky23Love the shape of this table and the ease of installation. Great that it’s an award-winning design. I wish it came in the matte black of the VEDBO series. Fingerprint resistant black finish would be an excellent material for a desk. Ikea, please consider this! :-)4
good good very good!wechat jimmickeygood good very good! where can i post pictures?5
The Best Studying Desk EVERkara001Okay, so I bought this desk just under a month ago - a few weeks into my first year of university. So, being a university student, you can only imagine how much time I actually had to build this thing *dread* That was NOT the case with this desk. I think had it fully assembled and wiped off of dust in under 45 minutes. It was that easy and steam-lined to put together. One thing I didn't do during assembly due to forethought was securing the drawer into it's frame: when I sit at a desk and I'm typing or writing, I tend to cross my legs or sit cross-legged in my chair (something that I realized in-store that the drawer prevents one to do). Simply secure the drawer frame pieces, skipping the step that requires you to leave one screw out to account for fitting in the drawer, and this enables you to easily remover the drawer completely from the desk anytime you need to accommodate your sitting needs/preferences, or for cleaning/organizing purposes. Unlike a few other pieces of IKEA furniture that I have, this piece is super is easy to wipe clean plus you can't detect dust on it at all. The smooth surface makes it perfect for writing and the height of the desk is just-right for those long-nights of studying.5

Sustainable life at home

Handcrafted feeling, modern technique

LISABO table has an organic shape and bevelled edges, a design that previously could only be made with solid wood. We wanted to find a more environmentally friendly and less expensive solution and developed a technique using solid wood around the edges and wood slats inside the table top. The construction makes the table very strong, so you can use it for many years. The natural beauty comes through thanks to a specially developed lacquer that also makes the surface durable. A real wood feeling and a unique table – without time-consuming upkeep!

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 veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet fixed on things like particleboards to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak and beech and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

"The idea behind LISABO was to create a series with the distinct feeling of wood, a floating expression and durable, easy to assemble construction. The round shapes and slanted edges create a hand-crafted look and we chose a matte lacquer on the ash veneer so the furniture will keep its natural wood feel. Each piece in the series work beautifully together or individually.”
