Don’t hesitateVerified BuyerAfter reading some of the reviews I was a little hesitant, however the product is really strong and sturdy, just follow instructions as always and you can’t go wrong.5
Multipurpose!Verified BuyerI bought this because I couldn't find a big enough place to store our shoes so this came in super handy - sturdy, functional and it looks good! The only thing was that there was one step in the instructions that wasn't clear and it was too late for me to rectify but super minor detail.5
Perfect book shelve and asVerified BuyerPerfect book shelve and as described.5
My "go to" bookcasesVerified BuyerHemnes bookcases are the backbone of my home office. (I have 6 of them!) They are well made, look good and have plenty of flexible capacity for books, files, folders and boxes. Thoroughly recommended5
ExcellentVerified BuyerExcellent5
Simple and functional.Verified BuyerThis bookcase is the perfect size for our sitting room and because of the flexibility of the shelves can take quite a variety of books.We have four in all for different rooms in the house and are very pleased with them.5
Excellent bookshelfVerified BuyerEasy to put together. If you can’t make up your mind how some part fits, look at the manual online and enlarge it, can reveal details not easily made out in the printed manual. Not impressed by the spray paint finish - very thin covering in parts, hence four stars.4

Basic practical bookcaseMcD 55A very good size practical bookcase which would go well in any room of the house ,good quality parts and fairly easy to assemble,good adjustable shelves deep enough to take large format books and good storage for other items.5
A little disappointingHelen2307I bought this bookcase two days ago. Delivery was fast as I paid extra. when I finally managed to assemble the bookcase, the look lived up to the expectation. The back cover of the bookcase isn't solid pine at all. The design of the back is puzzling with three screws penetrating two separate and filmy back covers in order to 'hold them together'. and there's nothing provided to cover those screws. I ended up not using them but sellotaped the two pieces together. Plus, I had to trim the edge a little to make sure the covers could be slid in properly. Secondly, yes, the look is overall pleasing, but the bookcase is so light-weighted, and I don't know how long it's going to last as I bought it for putting heavy textbooks and reference books on it and I hope the shelves won't bend as time goes on . Only time will tell. Along with the bookcase, I also bought Ikea's class KALLAX shelf unit (black), which I felt was a much better make, more sturdy.2
Strong capacious bookcaseGenie57Better looking and stronger than Billy bookcase, this holds so many books, games and ornaments, Ideal in a corner of the living area with a chair and light nearby. A favourite corner to sit and read.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, renewable and recyclable. 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. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
