Deep enough for multiple monitorsDANIELMine came with some scuffs matching the pattern of the corrugated-cardboard packing. The shipping box could have been better, but the scuffs don't bother me.
My main requirement was a desk deep enough to get multiple large computer monitors far enough to make reading comfortable. This desk met that requirement.
I also considered buying two of these (1 left, 1 right), to make a "U" shaped desk with lots of space. Although I haven't done that yet, there would be enough room to put an office chair into the empty space of the "U" and be able to swivel the chair.5
Great desk and quick delivery!DenniLove the desk, which was delivered the day after we ordered it!5
Desk is awesomeSheridanI purchased this desk to go in my office; just something simple yet functional. It was so easy to assemble and the first time I sat behind it I knew I had made the right choice. Much less than other comparable desks and the color matched everything else in the office. Looks and feels like it belonged. Thank you Ikea.5
Perfect and simple for aRachelPerfect and simple for a home office set up with multiple monitors.5
New deskLisaI love my new desk. It has the workspace I needed to work in healthcare IT from home.5
Great Simple DeskJeffExcellent quality. Well packaged. Easy to assemble.5
L shaped corner deskCherylI love this desk. It was super easy to put together. It comes in 2 boxes that are super heavy, I chose to have it delivered and they brought the boxes upstairs to the room the desk is in. Great quality and definitely worth the price.5
Nice Desk. Hidden Cable organizer is a plusAndrewNice Desk. Hidden Cable organizer is a plus. Adjustable leg height makes fitting the height to other furniture easy.5
Directed to purchase the wrong colorRogerLove this desk, but was initially directed to this "white stained oak veneer", not the color I'd intended to buy - "white." Got it home, opened it, realized it wasn't the color I wanted, then had to bring it back to exchange for the white top that I wanted originally.3
Love this desk, It hasRHONDALove this desk, It has great surface space and isn't taking over the office space with bulk!5
Great!!StaceyThis is a great solid corner desk with a sleek look. I love that you can choose different color combos and a white desk with black legs was the ticket. Easy to put together. My husband monitored my son while he built it. Didn’t take long at all. Highly recommend. I can’t say how the white top is holding up from scratches after only using for a month. I would buy again. I’m happy and my son loves his new desk.5
It is a great deskDarlineIt is a great desk I gave it a 4 star because I think the top could be a 1/8” thicker. I would still buy it because it is well made. The mesh wire holder underneath the desk is a nice feature.4
Great deskMaximilienSolid construction, feels great and looks awesome. A little spendy for what you get, but overall a good desk4
Nice desk for small spaceNINANice desk for small space5
It’s OKColt46This desk is perfect if you are a minimalist who doesn’t use a lot of desk space. But I have a desktop, a 16” laptop, an iPad, a HomePod, and other things that I use daily for work and I have no space to do breathe. Wishing I got a larger desk or atleast one without the corner.3
Beautiful graceful design and very solidDavidH17This desk is very satisfyingly solid with high quality, heavy legs. The frame supporting the table top allows for no flexing. The top's graceful design sweeps to the left of the user while keeping everything within reach. IKEA once again has earned my loyalty. Thank you!5
Home office winClem2020Needed a small corner desk to work from home and this was perfect. Online stores had reviews of shipping damage and difficult returns, so finally just made the trek to the store and was pleased to find a good stock selection, grabbed the desk and zipped home to assemble. Putting together was easy enough, If you have cats they might find the mesh cord holder delicious, so secure it well! Took off one star for trying to make sure the legs were parallel to the desk, because how? Just eye-balled it and looks fine.4
Great Sewing TableHappySewerI purchased the Bekant corner desk a month ago to use as a sewing table. It works great for that purpose and the corner gives me a space to iron while creating quilt blocks. I was looking for an adjustable height desk that would allow me to lower the top to a comfortable height to sew. It was easy to put together by myself as the metal frame that holds the desk top only has two pieces to be joined together. My only wish would be that it could be adjustable using a handle/crank system like the Skarsta. Great value!5
Short people, listen upAnotherWorkFromHomerI needed a desk that could go down, not up. Most desks are made for giants (I'm 5'2) and give me so much shoulder/back back from poor posture. At the absolute lowest height for this desk, I can actually sit with my feet touching the ground and my arms resting at a 90 degree angle. If you're shorter you might need a tiny boost under your feet but this is as good as it gets for a low desk. Assembly was a breeze, honestly, and I did it alone. Happiest desk purchase in years.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.
To work standing up
Good ideas thrive where the unusual is business as usual. So surprise your body with movement now and then – even if you’re super-concentrated on something for a long time. When you shift position, your blood circulation increases. It makes it easier to relax your back, neck and shoulders. With a height-adjustable desk, it’s easy to vary your work position. It can do wonders for your creativity and focus, and even be a good substitute for that extra cup of coffee.
Make 1+1 become 3
Sometimes we need to work on our own – sometimes we want to work together. Or just socialize. When we collaborate, we can share ideas, become inspired and create an environment where both businesses and people can flourish. To meet our changing needs, we need furniture that are as adaptable as we are. That makes it possible to create the workday we need and want.
Storage that takes you places
Storage with casters is easy to get out of the way when you want to turn the workplace into something else. Perhaps shift focus from one task to another, make room for cleaning or less serious stuff? Office supplies fit perfectly in storage with casters. It makes them easy to bring to the desk, the sofa – or wherever it is you prefer to work.
Two for one
Even if you have all your meetings online or out of the office, it can be a good idea to have an extra seat for colleagues or family members that want to stop by. When you’re on your own, you can use it for relaxation after a session by the screen – perhaps by doing a different type of work-task for a while. If you have little space, there are storage units approved to be used as seating as well.
Storage for people on the go
Storage units developed for standing work are handy if you don’t have a need or the space for a big desk. They can be used as presentation-desks, and if you add casters to them, you can easily move them around and rearrange the room in seconds.
Shared storage and shared spaces
Lack of storage seems to be a universal issue – no matter how disciplined you are or what you do for a living. Large storage units are convenient when you’re sharing storage with someone else. They can also be used as room dividers to create individual workspaces without walls or doors.
Hide or show what you’re storing
If you go for closed storage, it will always look nice and tidy no matter what is hidden inside the cabinets. With glass doors, you get an overview of what’s in the cabinets and can protect your stuff from dust. They also give an opportunity to show visitors things you are extra proud of.
To work sitting down
When you feel like working sitting down, choose a chair that adapts to you, not the other way around. Make sure it gives back support, is adjustable and can swivel – allowing for that all-important movement. You want to be able to sit upright and have your monitor at eye height, and your arms and elbows at a 90-degree angle with your hands just above your keyboard. If you need extra support for your lower back, choose a chair that has lumbar support.
A chair without armrests provides freedom for natural movement, but a chair with armrests will support the upper part of your forearms, thereby reducing stress on shoulders and back. Make sure the armrests don’t prevent you from drawing the chair close to the desk.
Chairs with casters
If you want a chair that can roll around and is easy to move, make sure it has safety casters. The safety casters make the chair stay in place when you get up from it.
Do yourself a favor, change position now and then instead of sitting or standing all day. A sit/stand support doesn’t have any back-support or armrests. It allows for a flexible work position at both desks and high tables. You get a more open posture – good for your circulation and core muscles, and awesome for both body and mind.
Managing the essentials
Cables. We need them, but we don’t want to see them. They’re easy to trip on, and it can be hard to know which one goes where. A cable management solution helps you to organize and hide the cables. It also makes your workstation look less cluttered and cleaning a whole lot easier. There are a several different cable management systems to choose from, see which one that suits you best.
Digital help that works in real life
There are a number of technological aids that can make your working life easier. With NFC (Near Field Communication) you can lock away your things with a card key instead of a regular key. There are also apps that you can use to control some desks. The apps can remind you to move around now and then, so you get a healthier workday. Or automatically set your favorite height if you share a height-adjustable desk with someone else.
Reduce noise pollution
Your ears should feel just as comfortable at work as your back, neck and shoulders. What someone thinks is calming background sound, can be noise to someone else. With soft-closing doors and drawers you can reduce noise pollution. You can also use fabrics, cushions and rugs to dampen sounds, soften echoes and give the office a homier feeling.
Feel at home at work
Apart from having flexible furniture, there are other things you can do to make magic happen at work. Decorate with plants that improve the air quality. Let daylight in – without causing glare. Make sure there’s access to hot drinks and cold water. But above all, challenge truths, try new things and ask for help if you need it. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable at work.
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.
