Shorter is more preferableVerified ReviewerI love this table style and color, but the length is too long for me. I think if there's a version 100~110 length long would be perfect and more people will consider it3
Functionally fine but ...Verified ReviewerOurs came with a couple of dark brown marks that I assume are supposed to look like knots but actually look like stains. Quite hard to install the lower shelf without scratching the legs but that's out of sight so not a big deal3
Love it!Verified ReviewerLovely table. Good quality. Fits our room nicely5
Coffee tableVerified ReviewerGood quality , really easy to assemble. Looks great in my newly decorated front room.5
Fell apart within 18 monthsVerified ReviewerThis table looked gorgeous, and while 250 is more than I would usually pay for a table from IKEA, it was just so pretty. However within 18 months of buying the table it has fallen apart. Two of the legs have ripped out of the chipboard, pulling the screw settings out completely, and no matter what I’ve tried I can’t fix it myself. I phoned IKEA to discuss this but I was informed that the table had a 1 year guarantee, and that outside of this there is nothing they can do. I appreciate that they have given this table a year guarantee, but realistically, for 250 pounds I would have expected the table to last longer. Would not recommend to anyone who wants to use this table for any length of time.1
More like Rockhome 😍Verified ReviewerExactly what I was looking for. Slightly more than I was wanting to pay but it's absolutely solid and looks great in the space. Took a couple of minutes to assemble and it was ready o go.5
Beautiful tableVerified ReviewerIt’s just as good as we expected.5
Lovely tableVerified ReviewerLovely table5
Coffee tableVerified ReviewerBeautiful table. Sadly quite a lot too big for our lounge. We wish it came in a smaller size. Love the finish etc but had to return because of the size.4
Beautiful designVerified ReviewerA very nice looking table and the perfect size to sit in front of a three seat sofa.4
Stylish slim tableVerified ReviewerNeeded a slim table to sit between 2 sofas which face each other. Hard to find a table this shape, but this one is perfect for us. It's slim, but not small - perfect.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.
Details create long-term quality. When I designed the STOCKHOLM series, I used lacquer that protects the surface and makes the material feel natural. The big picture was key, and the robust look is also on the inside and the backside. The slightly higher legs add simplicity to the expression and the table’s soft lines and the straight design of the storage units create contrasts, just like in nature. The result is timeless furniture ‒ just as beautiful alone as together!
