Price hike is too steepVerified ReviewerBought there when they were pinewood and £15, so ventile and affordable. Not sure how they came up with doubling the price overnight. Cant buy anymore now aus I know its not worth the price anymore. Very disappointed2
Study but slippyVerified ReviewerThe stool is sturdy enough, I bought mainly for my 3 year old to use to reach to help in the kitchen, with also the added bonus of me and my other half to be able to use it to clean higher shelf’s etc. it takes the weight of all 3 of us just fine (individually not all at once lol) however the moment you lean slightly the stool just slips backwards so I’m having to stand with my foot behind it whenever my 3 year old is stood on it as the first time it happened I had to catch him. For reference I have a normal tiled kitchen floor. I’m annoyed it doesn’t come with any slip proof feet (or if it’s meant to, mine we’re missing!) so I will order some kind of stick on rubber from somewhere and hope this solves the issue.3
Helpful stepVerified ReviewerBrilliant little step doesn't take up much space and helps me reach the kitchen too shelves5
A bit tricky to assembleVerified ReviewerSon in law had to put it together for us5

Great sturdy stoolVerified ReviewerSlightly difficult to assemble but very sturdy when built and just what I needed5
Does the job for myVerified ReviewerDoes the job for my vertically challenged other half.5
Useful stepVerified ReviewerMy second step stool from IKEA. Same name, but different materials and weight. I was concerned thus was a lighter weight version, but it is doing a good job and seems pretty strong. Easily paintable. Quite comfy with a cushion on top as a quick-use seat.5
Excellent productVerified ReviewerExcellent product5
Nice stoolVerified ReviewerNot as good as the first variant as it creaks a lot, makes you think it's going to collapse.4
multitasking little gemVerified ReviewerVery robustly made and sturdy piece, simple to assemble and decorate to match the interior, easy to carry to move around. I love it for its multiple applications around the house: step stool, bedside table, perching chair, side table, flower pots stand, even a piece of obstacle course training for my dog! A quality iconic product from IKEA, highly recommended.5
sturdyVerified Reviewergot this to replace my much loved step ladder.ill be getting another for upstairs. and a bonus the cat loves sitting on it waiting for the fridge door to open.5
Smart and StrongVerified ReviewerThe BEKVÄM stools are brilliant. Great for helping you reach that top shelf and doubles up as a chair when you come up short. Also really easy to paint to customise and make them fit into your scheme.5
Sturdy and solidVerified ReviewerBought this step stool and am using it as bedside table with lamp and candle. Looks cute.... but we also used when I need it as a step stool. Very sturdy and feel safe using it.5
Bekvam StoolVerified ReviewerThe stool is ok but must have been redesigned ,I've had a few of these over the years but this one is nowhere nearly as solidly built as the older ones. Pity because they were 5 star class before.3
HandyVerified ReviewerGreat size & I find it very sturdy to step on to reach high cupboards5
Great solid stoolVerified ReviewerThis is our second one, the first got splattered when decorating! Good solid stool for reaching high up around the house.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 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.
