Good quality shelfMichellePerfect shelf and to give you two options smooth edge or groves is brilliant. The only thing I don’t like is they mark the shelf with white printing surely a sticky label can be better as you can see this writing depending on what way up you put it.5
Thinner than the older gen.GARYBought these and went to used the older gen wall brackets only to find out that they a thinner, so had to buy the brackets that match.4

Lovely strong shelfCaseyI bought this as part of a kit for some shelves and so far I am super impressed by how sturdy the shelf is. It was actually put in a cupboard to give more storage space up high and was actually drilled into plaster board (using the correct rawlplugs for plaster walls) and they seem super strong. So far I have a stack of board games and filed paperwork on one shelf, so pretty heavy and it’s held perfectly. Keeping the other one I got for my little ones bedroom as they look lovely to display things on too. Definitely recommend!5

ShelfSamantja1965Lovely shelf with bevilled edge or plain if you turn it around. I've put this up over the top of my bed headboard as a feature.5
Alcove shelvingDeen1Absolutely delighted with shelves bought silver tone brackets to complete. These make great alcove shelves and I use for pictures, phone and table lamp. Would certainly recommend.5
Stylish shelvingAwaw2I initially bought one Bergshult shelf to add the finishing touch to my Ikea kitchen. Loved the sturdiness and the edging so I bought six more to make a bookcase in an alcove.5
Confusing illustrations and instructionsjkb2020The instructions were a bit confusing. I bought the 120cm version, however the instructions and illustrations don't match, as it illustrates a 100cm length shelf and then says Use 3 brackets underneath the shelf. How does one use a 3rd bracket?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 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 waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of 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. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
