Reviews

It should look nice but….Verified ReviewerIt should look nice but it’s the first time I have been disappointed so much by an ikea product! I have the rest of the Bjorksnas collection, the bed frame and the bedside table, and they are so nice. They look really good and stylish! I thought I would complete the collection with the chest if drawers as they look also so beautiful but it’s the first time I had so much trouble with an ikea product! To start, two of the handles came faulty/ damaged! Two out of eight! Spare parts are out of stock, unsure when they would come back in stock and no option to reserve the spare parts when they would restock! It’s just a matter of keep calling over and over again in hope you may be lucky to get them! Furthermore and more importantly, one of the screw holes for the base of the chest of drawers is completely misaligned so impossible to put the screw through and fix the base properly! So assembly of the whole unit is not possible! It feels that the quality of the item definitely has gone down compared to rest of the collection while the product’s price gone up!2
Absolutely rubbish top of chest bowedVerified ReviewerIKEA really has gone to pot recently. Customer service is nonexistent and so difficult to get any problems resolved. This chest of drawers arrived with a significant bow in the top. Do not buy!!!1
Looks fab but drawers don’t open all the way!!Verified ReviewerLove this unit and it’s perfect for my nursery…but the drawers only open 2 thirds. Is there a way to change this. It’s mental that you can’t access all the items at the back.3
DisappointedVerified ReviewerI have always had great and sturdy products from ikea but this one doesn’t fit that description. The drawers constantly come off the runners, the screw fixings at the side pop out and then the fronts come off. It feels flimsy and doesn’t hold much- I’ve just got babies clothes in there but you can’t fill the drawers even half full. We constantly have to try to fix this product but I’m about to throw give up it away. It’s a shame because it looks nice and was actually quite expensive.2
Sturdy but drawers don't open all the wayVerified ReviewerHard work to assemble but sturdy once built. The big disappointment is that the drawers don't open all the way- you can't access about 1/4-1/3 of the drawer space because they don't open that far.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.

Material

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

Designer thoughts

"The inspiration for the BJÖRKSNÄS collection comes from our Scandinavian roots and from the reality of everyday life. The neat and airy look is characterised by natural materials with fine carpentry details and proportions that make the furniture fit in many rooms. These are classic and freestanding products created to last a long time and to survive the ever-changing world of interior design. Practical and with a simplistic design idiom which is typically Scandinavian."
