Worth the waitI-FangI had to wait a while for this desk to be in stock and I am glad I did. It was easy to assemble and the height adjusting feature is great.5
Good for office work atAyshaGood for office work at home or for student5
Works greatCraigWorks great but even I put in the studs to put the net on underneath to keep the cords all together it punch a hole through the top of the table3
Wonderful DeskSusan J.This desk was easy to put together and is great to use.5
Not SatisifiedLAKSHMINot satisfied. The product was so delicate. The cost and quality is not matched and never recommend to others.1
Nice standup deskVitaliI own this desk for a month and I like it. The motor is not very loud and smooth, the table top has rounded corners to keep the heads of our little ones playing around save. The height adjustment range is superb for the price. The only minor thing to improve would be the control panel - adjustment buttons could have been more responsive, i have to firmly grab the control with full hand to make sure i go to needed height uninterrupted.5
Mixed experience with this purchaseDeborahThe desk is great. The delivery went wrong with only 2 of 3 packages arriving. That's when I discovered that IKEA customer service is non-existent. I had to go to Twitter (!) to get a response. Took 7+weeks to get everything. This experience has definitely lowered my opinion of IKEA.5
Easy assembly and works asRodolfoEasy assembly and works as advertised after 3 weeks of daily use.5
Nice size. Works greatJeanaR123I bought this a few years ago for my home office and came here just to review it. In the 3 years I've had it, the motor broke once and Ikea replaced it free of charge. Otherwise, it's perfect and rivals my in-office sit/stand desk.5
Perfect size for what I needed.DianeT_63Being forced to work from home due to the pandemic I needed a desk that I can rise and lower as I had at my work. This desk is the right size for having 2 monitors and other computer paraphernalia. Love that I can stand up or sit with any kind of chair. The only things that I need to bring up is that the power supply needs to be plugged into a wall outlet vs. a power strip. Being plugged into a power strip that's turned on and off, as needed, seems to do something internal to the power supply. When I had it plugged into the power strip I only get the desk to rise or lower intermittently. But since it's plugged into a wall outlet I haven't had any issues. The other thing that needs to be addressed is the hammock that covers the power supply under the desk is really tight, I understand why it has to be tight, but with it being as tight as it is causes the mounting holes to enlarge after some time of having the power supply cradled in the hammock.4
KNOW WHAT YOUR EXPECTATIONS ARE.KallisonThis is one of the most affordable desks I could find. Is it solid? I would say yes. Is it the most solid out there? No, it’s not. Assembly was a breeze. Live close to an IKEA, so it will be easy to take advantage of the 10 year warranty. Evaluate your situation before purchasing, but for me it’s great.4
Worked until it didn"t...Minty1Had this desk for around 4 years and it's gradually become worse and worse. The motor will stop every couple of inches now. I had expected much better - it's only used a couple of days a week and I only raise/lower it four or five times a day.1
Perfect for Our KidsScotty_MAWe bought two of these desks for the twins. They are perfect, our son is a fidgeter and our daughter loves to it works our great.5
Great desk207JaneI purchased this desk for my office. I needed a small sit to stand desk. This is perfect and is very easy for two persons to assemble. It is so easy and quick to change. You do not have to worry about your monitor moving it is so smooth.5
Versatilejk1951The ability to raise and lower the level is very versatile.5
DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!Kris10CTIf I could give it 0 stars, I would. We bought this less than a month ago and it was easy to put together. The first day I used it, it stopped working. I crawled under the desk and unhooked the wires and replugged them in. It worked again. It was fine for the next week or so but now it stops working just about every day. I emailed IKEA and they haven't responded - very annoying. I had a bad feeling that this would happen. I wish I had gone with the desk with the hand crank - it would probably work better.1
Wow, up or down at the touch of a buttonlfctI was not looking for this particular desk but stumbled on it at the Ikea store. I am so happy to have it. The set up was clear and easy to follow. And the desk performs so well. I love having the ability to work standing or sitting.5
Amazing desk I have 3 purchasing a 4thDay trader workstationSo not sure what people expect out of a sit stand desk with a 10 year warranty. Well here it goes purchased one in 2015 for business for my office. Amazing not a problem, nice and wide space for dual monitor. 1.5 years later the leg died I was didn’t even plan on replacing that weekend was near the college park store swung in and told them. “I think one of the legs died” she said cool do have the card u purchased it on and I said yes swipe gave me 2new legs and on my way I said that’s it she said yes. Done Purchase 2nd and 3rd about May 2017 and sept 2017 2nd one was my other store location not problems same 32 dual monitors setup office stuff. 3rd desk - I am a part time day trader and I wanted a sit stand desk that is big enough to hand 6 - 32“ monitors when calculating the weight of the 2 stands and monitors I and short 1lb of the recommended max weight. If one of these legs die I’m gonna take down a lot of hardware. So far so good desk is strong I would highly recommend. A lil wobbly weight the max weight but I have the bases drilled into the wood of the the desk with a bolt to secure it from toppling over. No issues even with a 3 year old playing with the up and down button when we are downstairs occasionally. So I have the pin locked Highly recommend About to purchase my 4th desk this week for my 3 store. The 10 year warranty alone for a electronic product is amazing. I and fortunate that the Ikea store is about 25 mins away 35 with traffic5
shoud have usb port and electric outletsing77looks nice and have tried it , i think ikea should do some quality control on this product and add more features like usb and electrical switch, on this one,it will increase there volume a lot on this product.4
Loved it - now hate itJulie2345Should probably have done better research - the desk was great while it worked but than stopped working. I learned that it was a common thing - HOWEVER IKEA customer service it just awful. They know the power supply is not working and yet they make it super hard for you to do anything about it. I should have probably ordered online but I went to the store to look at it the store is more than an hour away and I don't have a car - I got it to be delivered and set up by IKEA paid another sum for that. Now they are telling me to get it to the store if it is not working - which is really not an option for me (it will cost me approximately $100) and I cannot carry it or take it apart alone so will need to hire someone. Overall super disappointed lost a lot of money and time on this.1

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.

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.

Active seating

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.
