Great purchase!BarbaraWe bought three of these, connected with brackets and braced backs, varnished with a coating of spar urethane to use as outdoor privacy screens. No need for approval from HOA when it’s not permanent. Working perfectly, weathered two storms already. So glad we found these!5
Pleased with the item.CARMENPleased with the item.4
Very pleased with this product!CherylVery pleased with this product!5
Love, Love, Love!!SUSANThis transformed my condo patio. It looks fantastic while providing great storage!5
Love it!JillSo cute and functional! I use it for storage for my 3 boys outside toys. It holds a surprising number of trucks! My only complaint is the the rack doesn’t attach to the storage bench, it just sits in front of it. It looks great all together though, so still a great piece!4
Bench and shelfSherryLooks good very neat5
love it!!dorai wish i had known it attached to the wall and didn't stand alone, though. also, i needed two, and you only had one in stock, even though it showed in inventory that you had two! not the product's fault, though, so still 5 stars!!5
Really fails to note you have to install on a wallMegan laWe just got 4 of these delivered and are shocked to find they are not free standing which really limits their usability. All they have holding them together is 4 tiny dowels.2
Pros and consDLux326Purchased to screen the view of the neighbors’ messy patio. If you wish to use it as screening you will have to attach supports since the trellis does not attach to the boxes. Photo on website is misleading. I do really like the look and they were easy to assemble besides having to add supports.4
Nice materials but description not accurateKathy0417Unfortunately, I bought this and had to pay $50 in shipping because stores were closed. Then I found out this product will not work for me. The materials are good quality, but because the back panel is in separate pieces, there is no way to use it unless it is mounted to a wall. This was unclear in the product description. Now I have to wait for stores to open to return and am out the shipping charge.3
kirakira402I really like the storage bench and the panel is nice for small planters etc. be aware these are NOT connected and are two separate pieces. you will need to connect the panel to the bench or to something behind it. Furthermore, the panel's two pieces are not well-connected--just wooden dowels. I instead drilled 4 brackets (one on either side) to connect the pieces after the dowels snapped in a stormy, windy evening.4
Photos are misleading, but it looks good.builtWhile the product itself looks as expected, the screen is not designed to attach to the back of the bench as it appears to in the photos. Instead, it's designed to be fastened to a wall, with the bench pushed up in front of it, so the photos are misleading, if like me, you intend to have this act as a screen between areas, rather than just up against a wall. I was able to modify it with some other pieces of wood to span between bench and screen with a bunch of screws and stain to match the bench, so it looks fine and now functions, but it seems odd that they haven't designed it with the screen actually attached to the bench as it appears to be in the photos.3
Beautiful, but not free standing as soldABQEngNerdI love this piece! It is beautiful, easy to assemble, and looks to be durable (I've only had it a week). I thought the storage benches attached to the vertical panels, but they do not. I am covering a part of the wall that has a beam in it, so I did not want something that just attached to the wall, as these are designed. My hubby did a little engineering and now they are free-standing, sturdy pieces! We used 3' lengths of aluminum angle iron (pre-drilled holes in wood and Al, attached with 3/4 wood screws) to firm up the vertical panels, and then attached the panels to the benches with 3 wood screws (again, pre-drill holes), attached in a similar method to how the benches were assembled. This is an easy fix that Ikea could create a kit for... especially since they way the piece is shown in photos, it looks like it is a free-standing piece.4
Looks good, but back is not connected to the benchAlex WLove the look, however as a review above mentions, the back is not connected to the bench and is supposedly separately nailed/screwed to a wall.3
Easy to assemblejlbrown3I bought this last month to update my porch and add a little hidden storage. Easy to assemble by myself, seems to be good quality. I will have on covered porch, but seems like color might fade and need refinishing if in direct sun. It was the perfect addition to my back porch! I do however wish the bench kid was hinged, but that’s an easy update.5
Beautiful and functional!SDozzlerWorks great on my deck outside to organize all my Citizen Scientist supplies. Shelves are strong and hold heavy binders.5
I love thisKellie56This is a great set for my plants but it does need to be nailed to the wall or else it will tip over. Unfortunately, I can’t do that at an apartment so what I did was I nailed the bottom storage to the first shelving wall and then when I get around to it, I will zip tie the top to my balcony.4
Nice looking unitSwelteringLooks very nice on patio. Deducted one star because the hooks fit very loosely so they fall off when items hanging on them are taken off.4

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.

Lovable durable acacia

Acacia is a naturally durable and sturdy hardwood for outdoor use because of the high density of its wood fibers. For maximum protection it’s pre-treated with wood stain. By re-staining now and then you can enjoy it for many years.
