1 st class, easy biuldVerified Reviewer1 st class, easy biuld5
Just so HandVerified ReviewerJust love how it’s it’s on my desk Space saving, looks Stylish too5
Just rightVerified ReviewerThis is just the right size to have as a dresser drawer without using up floor space. Wish it came complete with brackets etc5
Just rightVerified ReviewerI did not use this product as a shelf - I used this as an addition to my desk! Very pleased with the functionality of this!5
Brilliant sturdy product.Verified ReviewerThis is an amazing shelf. We have used it in our son's room to display his football trophies and to keep his sticker and top trump card collections in the drawers. The drawers have plenty of room for storage and it would be amazing for other suggested uses such as a dressing table or desk as the surface on the top is quite big too. We used the RAMSHULT wall brackets to further support this shelf.5
It's OK..Verified ReviewerIt's OK..4
Great productVerified ReviewerAbsolutely love this shelf with drawers. Very sturdy. Doesn't come with any sort of fixing, so brackets must be bought seperatly. I used 3 of the SIBBHULT brackets, works a treat. Shelf looks great under our wall mounted TV and the drawers are super hand to keep everything tidy.5
Perfect unobtrusive desk/storageVerified ReviewerMy daughter chose this legless desk for her room. It provides just enough space for her laptop and looks great in her room, with or without a desk chair. Only minor downside is the drawers don't run very smoothly but this is unimportant and we're all very happy with the purchase.5
Great shelfVerified ReviewerI use this as a dressing table in my room as it takes up very little space. Also 2 handy drawers in so ideal for hairbrushes etc5
Excellent and understated shelf + storageVerified ReviewerThis is one of my favourite IKEA shelving units . Put two or three above each other and you have a lot of bookshelf/box shelf space with surprisingly useful storage for smaller things that prevents them getting lost. Structurally these are good as shelves (with the right wall fixings) as the structure keeps them rigid and avoid the dreaded 'shelf curve'. Very good.5
Used as a deskVerified ReviewerWe bought this to use as s shallow desk for my Daughter as we are tight on space I used Ikea legs at the front and used a single bracket to the wall. It’s perfect5
Not worth itVerified ReviewerYou have to buy the brackets separately. When u drill it to the wall there is not particular place to secure the bracket and storage together1
Verified ReviewerVery cheap and poor quality1
Verified ReviewerGreat product would recommend.5
Great little shelf, surprisingl fiddly to assembleVerified ReviewerThis is a great product, its tidy and practical and... very very fiddly to assemble, PAX wardrobes require less clips and screws! But the end result is great. Minor niggle is that the runners could just be a little longer, the drawers really could do with another 4cm of opening. But not a deal breaker.5
BrokenVerified ReviewerRecieved my order opened it weeks later.. and it was snapped missing materials. Not happy1
Perfect sizeVerified ReviewerThe shelf proved to be a good buy, and is perfect for the small bedroom for which it is required. However the brackets that are suggested for the fixing of the shelf are not suitable and we bought brackets from another store. (at extra cost)4
Perfect for addition to Alex deskVerified ReviewerBought this as added extra to sit on top of Alex desk. Looks lovely, gives extra dimension to what looks like ordinary desk and when mirror sits on top ...amazing!5
Looks really niceVerified ReviewerThe shelf looks really nice when fitted.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 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.
