Fantastic stylish shelves!Verified ReviewerI bought 2no 4x1 and 1no 2x1 of these shelves for my new 'dog' room. Everything now needs to be in boxes and out of reach cos he will steal literally anything! I turned the 2x1 on it's side and put wheels on it so it can act as a coffee table/art cart but be wheeled away when not in use.4

Love this rangeVerified ReviewerCouldn't recommend these units any more. Great for storage an use them either way( stood up or laying down I like to add feet to make them look more attractive. So easy to put them together5
AWFUL RETURNS POLICY FOR UKVerified ReviewerBE CAREFUL IKEA DOESN'T ALLOW RETURNS ON ASSEMBLED OR OPENED PRODUCTS so if you're not 100% sure you want this DO NOT BUY IT YOUR MONEY WONT BE RETURNED!!! ikea uk demand your product should be in 're-saleable' condition. Ironically this policy only exists in the UK, ikea EU and Australia have flexible returns, they refund assembled products and even without the box. I bought this unit for my books but it marks extremely easily by the smallest of things so I took it back to ikea to swap for another unit (i wish they did this unit in high gloss), but their customer services refused to give a refund or store voucher only because this was 'assembled and the fittings bag has been opened’. It's saddening given the cost-of-living crisis my £90 wasted . Seriously I want to give 0 stars if possible. I'm a regular customer but never coming to ikea again. ikea is a waste of time, fuel, and money1
Great unitsVerified ReviewerI already have a variety of Kallax in my studio and decide I needed more. Versatile sturdy and well made. Super easy to build too! Studio is looking very smart teamed up with the grey Drona.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.


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.
