I wish it came withCHERYLI wish it came with some sort of template to help with installation. Also, hard to accept that this used to be $1 and now it’s $3, but other than that, it looks great and works as it should.4

BracketTRUDYIt’s cute - I actually wanted black so thought I could just paint it p, but the finish on it wouldn’t take the paint so I will probably have to you it later on a different project.4

Wish there was a templateOscarWish there was a template to help you put the screws in the correct locations. I measured twice and was still slightly off. I ended up screwing 3 holes into the shelf for one bracket. Had to adjust for the other side as well. Luckily they are long and wide enough to cover up the additional holes.4
Terrible new designSaraThese are NOT load bearing brackets. This new design requires the bracket to rest on the screw, a few mm out of the wall. This is not the correct way to use wall plugs and your brackets will pull the plugs out of the wall. Mine crashed down within 10 minutes of the shelf being attached.
Really upset I bought these thinking they were the old style.
I’d only use these to hang my hat.1
Cute, minimalist and sturdyEss11I bought these 6 months ago to support plants on my wall, they're great, and add a nice touch to the room decoration. It's too bad they've been out of stock here for some time, I wanted more!5
GarbageVictoryrollsBought these thinking that they were the equivalent replacement of the Ikea Ekby Valter wood. They are not strong at all. Don't expect this to hold a shelf up and hold weight on-top. Will be returning. Don't waste your time or money1
Psilva25Basic bracket, wish they came with screws to mount.3
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 and renewable. 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.
