First timerDayvee M.This is my first time buying from Ikea and hopefully won’t be the last. The Alex drawers are easy to assemble. The instructions are very clear to follow and the cost for this drawers are reasonable. The shipping was quick too and the delivery people are very courteous and pleasant. Overall, the experience was great and I would definitely recommend this product and Ikea to family and friends.5
So far so goodElisabeth K.We needed some drawers to house some craft supplies and general desk items. We purchased two and both were packaged satisfactory and didn't have any dings. We wanted to put casters on them, but never found them in the store so maybe next time. We also purchased the shorter cabinet with casters included and the casters don't lock so I may look at a different set. I put the first one together following the directions. The second one I put the drawers together first so I wouldn't have little pieces lying around as long for my toddlers to wander off with them. The directions didn't quite show the notch for the bottom of the drawers in the image. I put the notch side in first so that it's closest to the front of the drawer. Also, when putting in the bottom of the drawer, I had issues with the white wrapping not sticking around the corners, but if I went slow with putting in the chip board bottom the white would crease down. Two of the drawers are smaller and three are larger. I recommend.5
Nice Storage UnitElaineAdded wheels and paired this with the Alex desk. Looks good and easy to assemble. Plenty of storage for all my office supplies and other junk. I added a cube storage from another retailer on the other side of the desk to form an L-shape. My only complaint is that I wished it was less expensive!5
Just right. Drawers move smooth.LAURENEJust right. Drawers move smooth.5

Alex CabinetBetty N.Like the cabinet. Bag of screws confusing. Had to watch a video to help put together. 4 rubber feet were in the box, but the holes on the bottom board was drilled for 4 casters. No casters in the box.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.
What is particleboard?
Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of 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. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
