Perfect room dividerVerified ReviewerWe bought this in white to divide a large bedroom for our 2 kids. It's perfect! They both now have a defined space with the added bonus of plenty of storage each. Super easy to assemble too! Can't recommend Kallax highly enough!5

Great design, great storageVerified ReviewerGreat design, very simple to build and sturdy and stable in position. A great storage solution with lots of flexibility, it lets me store a great deal of stuff whilst keeping my room neat open and calm.5
Brilliant!Verified ReviewerLots of storage. Looks smart - just what we needed5
Looks greatVerified ReviewerEasy to assemble. Very versatile. Looks great.5
Storage at its best.Verified ReviewerMy son put this together for me on his own. It transformed into a wonderful space saving unit quite quickly and was soon in its new home. I have a very small house with not a lot of storage, so this has been perfect teamed together with Drona Boxes and shelf inserts. Highly recommended5
FeebleVerified ReviewerDo not buy. The pegs that hold it together snap like twigs while putting it together, most of them inside the holes so its then impossible to get them out. Many of the holes will also be too small for the pegs to go in all the way even with application of rubber mallet. The fake wood dents and scratches easily and once put toghter the whole thing will wobble if you don't place things on gently enough. Horrible over priced fustration.2
Cube storageVerified ReviewerFab room divider. Easy to build & loads more storage in room now.5
TidyVerified ReviewerA fab way to try and organise my grown up sons bedroom .5
No feet for my purchaseVerified ReviewerWhilst I am happy with the Kalkax storage unit, I am annoyed that there is no feet or frame support available for 183 cm wide unit1

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.


Quality and feel

At first glance, KALLAX is a simple shelving unit, but it’s based on a love for details. The unit has smooth surfaces and rounded edges that make it appealing to the eye and enjoyable to touch. We’ve also worked hard to make the shelves align perfectly so you avoid eye-sore gaps, giving the unit a uniform look. Simply put, all of KALLAX is well-thought-out down to the smallest detail and exudes a solid feel of quality – which results in a nicer and more timeless impression.
