Great stoolVerified ReviewerGreat stool, this was so easy to put together. Great sturdy stool.5
Great for grandson to help his momVerified ReviewerThis step is perfect for grandson to help his mom cook, and wash dishes. He also uses it (backwards) as a toddler table.5
A step up!Verified ReviewerWorks really well, and does what it says.5
Brilliant stepsVerified ReviewerWish I’d bought them before, they are functional and look nice in our kitchen!5
It's okVerified ReviewerNothing special - adequate for the purpose2
The finish on it isVerified ReviewerThe finish on it is quite poor to be honest. Paint is thicker in some places than others and the hand hole at the top isn't smooth4
Really handy stepsVerified ReviewerWe use as steps or as an emergency seat. Looks good, great quality and value for money.5
Excellent productVerified ReviewerIt does its job as a step and also doubles as an extra dining room chair when required.5
Love itVerified ReviewerLove it5
Stylish and versatileVerified ReviewerDid think this was expensive but have used it so much, sturdy but light enough to carry around. Great as a step ladder, chair or table/chair combo for little people.5
Great stoolVerified ReviewerDoes the job perfectly easy to assemble looks nice and solid5
Two step stoolVerified ReviewerIdeal for around any home, easy to assemble - perfect for our holiday cottage to make sure you can reach the top kitchen cupboards which give access to the wine glasses, cheers.5

Perfect for the kitchenVerified ReviewerPerfect for reaching into wall cabinets. Sturdy and nice looking.5
GoodVerified ReviewerI don’t write English sorry5
Using as bedside tablesVerified ReviewerWe've used these as bedside tables. We love functional furniture, and these are just perfect. Great shape and style, while also meaning I can reach the top level of my storage without needing a ladder. Very happy, thank you IKEA!5
Cost cuttingVerified ReviewerI have had this stool in black for about 5 years. I have a new kitchen so decided I would buy another in white. The difference in stools is very noticeable and disappointing. The newer stool is much lighter in weight, not as sturdy, smaller step and the bolts are on the outside which is unattractive. Obviously a cost cutting exercise - poor show2
The most useful item in my kitchen!Verified ReviewerThis was simple to assemble and is easily the most useful product I have. I am not much over 5 feet tall so I have been able to reclaim the top shelf of all of my kitchen cabinets. Safe, sturdy and stylish.5
Weaker than old stepVerified ReviewerThis step was bought to replace a step bought about 10 years ago from IKEA. It is the same style and design, but much lighter and flimsier. It will never last even half as long as the old one and doesn’t inspire confidence when standing on it.1

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.
