Love it!PennyLove it!5
Very nice sturdy desk!JodiVery nice desk, sturdy and sleek. The only improvement would be the drawers’ sliders. They do not open and close as smoothly as some of their other furniture. Delivery guys (central FL) were awesome!!5
Sleek & simpleDeborahWanted something clean and simple with some storage. This fit the bill perfectly. The drawers are just enough for some storage & to hide office clutter. The compartment to hide the cords is an added, smart bonus. Can’t beat this item at an incredible price.5
There was 1 peice thatDeannaThere was 1 peice that was not pre-drilled. Had to drive all the way back to get another. Other than that, the desk is good.4

Alex deskMicheleIncredible desk. Metal legs and large drawers makes it a perfect work space.5
Perfect fit, easy assembly, greatRoxannePerfect fit, easy assembly, great value for money.5
All good except the drawersCharlesI really like the look and size of the desk. Assembly was also very easy. The drawers don't rest evenly on the drawer slides leaving an uneven gap around the drawer that is visually annoying. For that reason I would only recommend purchasing if on sale.4
Fit into the area weRonFit into the area we wanted to put a desk , but drawer is too shallow4
Met my expectations!YukiMet my expectations!5
Nice tableJoanneI especially like that it hides all the cords.5
Perfect desk.StaceyPerfect desk.4
Excellent, functional, quality.JeffreyExcellent, functional, quality.5
the storage compartment for theMonicathe storage compartment for the cords is a benefit5
Design flaw with cable organizerMinnThis is not a large desk so you will end up moving your monitors further back sitting directly on the cover to the cable concealing compartment. Everytime you fix your cabling, you will end up moving your monitors around. I regreted buying this one because I didnt forsee that.1
Simple and stylishWEILANGood size desk, my teenage son really like the style. He learned to put it together by himself.5
Great deskLynnNice size, not too narrow. The functioning opening at rear of desk hides cords, but it a little difficult to assemble and adjust to close smoothly. Not the best instructions in this regard. But with a little tinkering figured it out.5
Looks very nice. Works wellPeggyLooks very nice. Works well5
it looks a goodwell madeJamesit's well made and it seems a good quality but i wish they made a little deeper where cables are stored. it's just not deep enough with extension outlets and all the cables.4
LoveKyle S.I've had this desk for a few months now and it's worked great! I really love the hidden cord compartment and the overall clean look of the desk. It doesn't have the most drawer space but it fits my needs and I prefer having the open space underneath.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 particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
