Brilliant desk for a reasonable priceVerified ReviewerWe now have 2 of those in our house. I originally bought the desk as I have a bad back and wanted to be able to stand when working- but all the raisers that you can get require to be raised mechanically, and I wanted an automatic desk. We got it, put it together and it did the job perfectly. SO much so, that my other half after using the desk for a little in my office, decided he would get the same! Yes, it struggles on occasions and requires to readjust the load, but other than that- fantastic. No coffee marks on it from hot mugs, I've spilled loads on it and it all gets cleaned in a wipe- bit it is no a sleek surface, it does have a bit of "grain" that match the looks. We have now had those desks for about 5 or 6 years, and never had problems with them. They get raised up and down at least 5-10 times every day. And it is a blessing for my back. 100% recommend.5
Bekant Petrol Blue table topVerified ReviewerIt is a lot nicer that I thought. It is also takes up more space in my flat but such a nice set up for my new job from working from home. Wished I purchased earlier. Love it5
Ready to work!Verified ReviewerLove this desk! I originally was planning for the slightly smaller version but it’s a treat to myself as I spend most my days working. I used task rabbit for the build and they were great!5
Great Adjustable Desk - Terrible deliveryVerified ReviewerWorks as expected, looks great. It took several hours to set-up, but all as in the instructions. Some of the Instructions could be clearer, especially the bracket central to under the desk. Delivery was also terrible. IKEA automatically cancelled even though it was in stock . So I spent several hours on the phone was told that I had to re-order on priority and I was promised a £20 voucher as compensation which never arrived. The box also arrived broken, but contents were fine.5
BrilliantVerified ReviewerEasy to build. Looks professional. Working well to date. Very neat desk.5
ExcellentVerified ReviewerIt is very good to use for three monitors, even the price is more than my expectation. anyway, it is good for my work at home.5
Perfect desk for design work and easy to assembleVerified ReviewerSo happy when desk arrived and could not wait to assemble, which was quick and easy. I am able to work standing up especially when sketching, drafting patterns and cutting out. Lower the table to sit when using sewing machines - perfect5
JUST WHAT I NEEDED!Verified ReviewerI had been looking at the standing desk for sometimes and finally bought it recently whilst on a special family offer. I sit a lot at my desk as I do translations and always used to suffer from back pain from prolonged periods of sitting down, now I can just swap the various positions between up and down, I have even bought the stool that can be used with it so in fact have 3 different positions and it's brilliant. The desk is also wide enough if my son or husband need to sit with me to work on the computer. Can't find anything wrong with it, although I would say that the top part does move a little bit [so if you are a heavy typist your computer screen will move slightly but nothing drastic and I suppose this is normal as the top needs to be light to be able to go up and down so won't be as sturdy as a solid desk, also will have to see if in years to come the veneer will still be as new, I am using a mouse mat as I am worried about damaging the top with my mouse... Very easy to assemble my 15 year old did it for me, however very heavy legs and you will need to be 2 to turn the desk over.5

Sustainable life at home

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 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 particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
