Great itemPeterReal wood, natural feel and looks, well designed and simply practical5
For my DaughterJenniferGot it for my daughters room and she loves it.5
took a while to build but they're cuteAlexandrai bought 2 of these for either side of my bed, and while they are super cute and present a world of DIY possibilities, they took forever to build. if you do it with a friend like i did, it was honestly kind of fun, but just be prepared to be working on it for a couple hours lol. either way, i think they look great, and you can't beat solid wood furniture at a pretty decent price point. i'm super excited to refurbish them and make them my own.4

BeautifulDianaIt’s absolutely beautiful I love it! Easy to assemble!5
Worst IKEA experience everZhiyuanTerrible to install. Low quality material and a tedious 31 steps to install a night stand. Some nails just impossible to fit in by hand. Took more than 4hrs to stall. End result is ok but legs not straight.1
Nice but Yellow-ish woodLauraAs always putting together this night stand was easy and quality good. Unfortunately there is a a yellow hue to some of the wood on the top that doesn't look the greatest. I will try and paint it but not sure if it will show through. I should have purchased an already painted item.3
Looks greatLindseyI got this nightstand and the matching bed for my young daughter's room. It was easy to put together on my own and is very solid. I like that it is solid wood and not veneer. It is easy to customize with paint or stain to match any room.5

The one I bought is greatAnnaIll start of my review with saying I went in to buy two Tarvas and was disappointed that I could only buy one. Im waiting for another shipment to buy another. This being said, I bought the Tarva so I could diy it; stain and cut/ sand the legs to look more mid century without the price. It turned out great. The pine took the stain well. It sanded nicely. It was also pretty easy tk put together myself once I got my electric drill out. Would recommend. Will be buying the second (once the shipping / quantity problems get fixed)5
Solid and well madeLornaGreat little table. Well built and looks good. Solid. Will match our pine furniture at the cabin perfectly.5
Good valueHeatherNice product. Good value for the money4

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.

Designer thoughts

"Both the simple design and the untreated wood are typical for the Scandinavian furniture tradition. With TARVA series we wanted to show our roots and create a modern, airy design. We think it's nice to be able to feel the natural material just as it is. The wood is beautiful in its own right and it's also renewable. And because you can stain or paint it without further treatment, everyone can create their own TARVA. In that way, the design becomes a collaboration between us and the person who decorates it."
