By using particle board with a slice of wood as top layer instead of solid wood only in this product, we use less wood per product. That way, we take better care of resources.
We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.

AT LAST A PROPER SIZED DESKVerified ReviewerGreat. Can get computer, printer and everything else without cluttering up the desk top and not being able to write in notebook or reading from documentation for typing. Top drawer with cupboard underneath with 2 shelves. Really nice looking as in lounge. Absolutely brilliant so pleased with it.5
Malm deskVerified ReviewerThe desk is functional, looks good, and when assembled seems to be a solid piece of furniture. My only qualm is that it was a complex piece of furniture to assemble with a great many parts to use. I found the large wardrobe that I also bought from you to be slightly easier to assemble.4

Good work desk for teenagersVerified ReviewerPlenty of space for monitors, laptops etc. Very sturdy5
Simply perfectVerified ReviewerGreat desk, bought for my now working from home life. I needed a white desk to brighten my space. Easy to put together and the cupboard has replaced my filing cabinet. I’m loving the drawer to keep my pens and sticky notes etc in.5
Brilliant deskVerified ReviewerThis is the second one of these I have bought in recent month's, 2 of my son's have them and they are sturdy, practical and also blend in to the rooms well.
The only issue I had was being told constantly it was out of stock when I had other items in the basket but when I removed all of them, the desk was available. Which means I would of had to pay 2 delivery charges so I cancelled the other things l wanted. £50 for this delivery made it an expensive extra birthday gift so a second delivery charge was not happening.5
Good desk for the price.Verified ReviewerEasy to assemble. Would have given 5 stars but put some heavy books on one side and it appears to have dipped on the top.4
Great deskVerified ReviewerSturdy, clean lines and a great large work space5
Home office deskVerified ReviewerSturdy and looks nice, reasonably easy to build but the ‘wheels’ that hold end panel on quite hard to fit5
SturdyVerified ReviewerSturdy desk with plenty of storage space in the side cupboard. The cord management tray means no trailing cables to tangle feet in. Overall I am impressed with this desk.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 veneer?
A veneer is a thin wooden sheet fixed on things like particleboards to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak and beech and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
