Love, love this alexheatherBought this for my daughters room! She loves it & it holds so much. Took a little time to get together but well worth it!5
cute but cracked when we put it togetherSIMONEwe love the function and the look. Sadly it cracked the two of the cabinet fronts when we put it together. It was at my daughters dorm room and bringing it to ikea for a return was not an option.2
Far Better Than Plastic Storage DrawersAdrianThis unit is just perfect to replace all the plastic storage drawers units I had in my home office. It looks a lot nicer, and is a bit more solid than the plastic drawers.5
Nice Piece of FurnitureBeckyAlex is the perfect size for a space in our closet between two shelf sets. It provides a nice amount of storage for socks, etc.5
Drawers gets off trackCrystalee R.I had this drawer for about 6 months and every single drawer gets off the track. If I knew that would happen I would have never ever gotten this. So disappointing1
Office organizer holds lots ofSHARONOffice organizer holds lots of stuff and keeps the mess concealed was easily put together and is sturdy.5
Difficult to attach to wallSteve A.The drawer unit is great: solid, drawers draw easily. The only problem I had was that I found the materials provided and the instructions for attaching the unit to the wall were impossible to complete. I eventually used a hook-and-loop strap to attach the case to the wall.4
Great OrganizationAliceI bought the ALEX with nine drawers for organization of sewing notions and accessories for my sewing area. It is PERFECT! The deeper drawers on the bottom were perfect for lightly larger items and the narrow drawers fit all my small, loose items like sippers and thread spools.5
Easy to assemble . LooksROBERTEasy to assemble . Looks great!5
Love these!KaylaI have used these in my salon as stations to hold tools and products and they have been great!5
Great for my sewing roomMargaret W.This unit is replacing a 20 year old, rickety cart with shallow trays/drawers, that has held sewing notions and patterns. This is perfect! It’s sturdy and, with the different sized drawers, it holds so much more. I have two sewing and craft rooms, one is being completely redone with ikea units. I can’t wait til it’s all completed and organized! We have the Kallax assembly down by memory, so this one was a little trickier, but still the easiest pieces of furniture we’ve ever assembled.5
Well madeALICEWell made, the drawers are two depths. Was able to store several picture albums,paper and a lot of things that have been cluttering up the apartment. We all have things we need,just not everyday. Now they have a place.5
Alex Drawer UnitMelissaThe product is heavy and well made. Easily put together. The drawers slide well. This unit is exactly what I had hoped for!5
More space than expectedMARIAI bought this to replace a plastic bin tower. It exceeded my storage needs and allowed me to expand with no additinal floor space needed. Will be getting another one. Great for storing my crafts.5
Keeps papers in their placeSTEPHANIEAnother great ALEX product. Keeps everything in its place.5
Multi-use, very functionalLindaI love this product! They are easy to put together and really sturdy. I wish they came in more standardized sizes, as some of them are deeper than others. I also wish they had one with ALL large drawers (the deeper drawers). Great price, too!4
Alex 9 drawerMelanieLove these I have 6 of them and plan to get more in the future. Lots of storage for the size5
Excellent space saverBarbaraEasy to put together if you follow the step by step instructions and don’t skip ahead.5

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.
