Not the best light fromVerified ReviewerNot the best light from it, but is aesthetically pleasing5
Perfect drop lightVerified ReviewerLovely lights very good value the bulbs are so warm they give a lovely warm glow to the room5
Good light, awful fitting ‘hook’Verified ReviewerGreat looking light however the ‘diy’ light fitting Element ruins the product. Why can’t this product have a standard light fitting rather than purchasing a hook to drill into the ceiling which results in a poor fitting.3
To big cannot send it backVerified ReviewerWas a lot bigger then the picture all I wanted was the lamp shade not the fitting. Have been trying to send it back but the online service was very little help1
Pendant Lamp Shade.Verified ReviewerA great product and very attractive. It was not an easy fit however as my daughters bed room has a low ceiling. My daughter chose the shade and is delighted with it.5
Large pendantVerified ReviewerAbsolutely gorgeous huge but looks stunning5
Eye catching its perfectVerified ReviewerPerfect size for a bedroom. Amazing light had many compliments. Lets out good light anytime of day5
Beautiful pendantVerified ReviewerLooking stunning in my bedroom, well made and installation wasn't difficult.5
UnusableVerified ReviewerA stunning lampshade is spoiled by being completed fitted to a light fixture that must be installed (electrical!) instead of simply having a lampshade to put up. The pendant facet is complicated and unavoidable, making this beautiful light utterly worthless.1
Not for for purposeVerified ReviewerThe pendant fitting has nothing to fix it on the ceiling , I am very disappointed, it was a waste of money.2
Amazing light patterns on ceilingVerified ReviewerFinal view is that this is an amazing lamp hampered by some design flaws in fitting. Light patterns are incredible on our vaulted ceiling. Two major flaws include 1) the fixing for the cables which are not self explanatory and would easily lose electrical connection - cable would easily pull out after following instructions. 2) the light bulb screw isn't quite the same as E27 (I think) and light bulb from screwfix goes in at a bit of a skewed angle! Would have returned as faulty due to this but the contact was made and functioning now - bulb being at angle is only seen if you look too close!3
Nice statement lightsVerified ReviewerBeautiful effect during the day and night. Only negative is the cables are too short for high ceilings (ours is around 4m)4
Focal lightVerified ReviewerWell constructed and designed although it does take a bit of time to mount properly on the ceiling4
Absolutely abysmalVerified Reviewer0 stars is unfortunately not available. This ludicrous design is as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike. It’s a huge waste of money and an even bigger waste of time. If you have any dignity you wouldn’t entertain this clown of a light fitting.1
Horrendous to fitVerified ReviewerLovely to look at but thats it. Fitting it is an absolute joke. Unless you are used to EU light fittings then this is not for you. Returned it due to the hassle, also, it needs a hook attatched to the ceiling to fit it, which is not provided.1
Lovely lampshade, NO HANGING HOOK TO INSTALLVerified ReviewerWe were really excited to put our lampshade up as soon as we got it, problem is there ISN’T a light hook that attaches it to the ceiling?! Absolutely baffled as to why this isn’t included. We now have to wait longer, spend more money and faff around with getting the hook before we can admire the lovely shade. Slightly infuriating! Only positive of this is the look of it when it’s up.3
lovelyVerified Reviewerlovely light when and it is a centre piece of any room5
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 bamboo?
Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
“Design is not always about inventing something new, but about placing things in a new context and or mixing traditional techniques with more modern approaches. Sometimes the best results actually come from using the best of old ideas. I hope that you can both see and feel that every handwoven lamp in the SINNERLIG series is special and that they bring a warm and natural feeling – wherever you choose to place them in your home.”
