Strong and attractiveRobertaLove the adjustable height feature. Easy to assemble, great quality, and looks fantastic.5
Useful deskIanOverall, the desk has met my expectations for over a year now. Looks good, has a nice depth allowing for a keyboard and notepad in front of a monitor. A few reviews I'd seen before mentioned the rotors might stop working after many movements. Recently happened to me, but a quick fix: (1) Hold down both the up and down buttons (same time) for 10 seconds. (2) Lower the desk to maximum level (3) Voila - it should work again. Just wanted to share in case anyone else might have the same issue.5

UsefulDerickA very plain functional desk. I do not find the cord system helpful.4
Does what you needDonBought this as a crafting table for my wife. The unit is very sturdy and the adjustable height is very nice, since she is not very tall.5
This is a GREAT desk that deserve a 5 Star.Verified BuyerI don't know why people can give this desk a one star... huge mislead. This is a great all-around and versatile desk that has a reasonable size and quality for the money. Some people said the adjusting this table is a pain, but that's not what we experienced. This is not designed to be a standing/sitting lifting table. If needed, simply adjust the height of the chair. Overall, this unit absolutely deserves a five star. I would recommend everyone to buy it.5
Perfect and simpleVerified BuyerPlenty of space for keyboard, monitor, laptop, mousepad, and other things like a notepad/coffee/phone/docking station/etc. The depth of the desk is perfect, it keeps the monitor at a comfortable distance from your eyes. Easy to assemble and more than sturdy for home use.5
Remeber to firmly assemble itVerified BuyerI've bought this about 10 months ago and the tilting problem of this desk brought me back to leave a review. The desk has been slowly tilting. I was able to withstand it but I cannot anymore. My muscle in my shoulder area sores and I think it may have been because of tilted desk. Please make sure to assemble your product firmly. I think I assembled the desk pretty sturdily with a help of two men, but I am not sure where it went wrong. I really like the desk design but the tilting and shaking the this desk made me feel like the worst desk I've ever bought.2
Simple deskKathrynI bought this at the beginning of work from home and it has been a life saver. It wasn't hard to put together.5
Don't buy thisVerified BuyerYes it's a desk. It does its job. It also shakes constantly when you're writing/typing on it. Also... Good luck adjusting the height on this thing... It's a huge pain. The metal leg slipped down into its base and is now stuck. Me and another person cannot pull it out at all. It's totally jammed so now I have a desk at the lowest possible position. Only positive about this... It doesn't shake nearly as much. Big negative... Cant fit my legs under the table. Awesome purchase.1
Doesn't work when arrivedVerified BuyerFollowed the instruction, assembled the desk, plugged in the key, plugged into outlet. Expect it to work, OH NO IT JUST DOESN'T WORK! IT DOESN'T MOVE AT ALL, THE BUTTONS DON'T WORK AND THE DESK WON'T MOVE!!1
Clean looking desk butVerified BuyerThe desk looks neat and clean, has plenty of space for stuff, but the design is a little bit odd beause it's too wide, I have to lean myself toward the monitor to see it clearly otherwise I really like it!4
People are Tripping, Mice Work Great On This TableVerified BuyerWe have 4 of them at my office and they're great. Never had an issue. If you're not a moron and know how to read instructions, you'll never break anything and it will always work.5
Great size with lots of depth. Seems very sturdy.Verified BuyerI'm glad I found this desk at IKEA, as I needed a desk with lots of depth, as I'm using it for a large computer workstation. Most desks today seem to be very shallow, as if they intend people to use them with laptops or all in one computers, like iMacs. Lots of space for all my stuff. I was unsure about the plastic fasteners holding the desk surface to the frame. It all seems remarkably sturdy so I'll rate this five stars for now. I like the look at the desk and the fit and finish looks and feels like quality.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.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

"When we designed the BEKANT series our goal was to make flexible desk combinations that encourage collaborations, meetings and creativity. The desks come in different sizes and shapes – you can use one alone or combine them to suit your needs. And they’re easy to add onto, or change, any time your needs do. To encourage a healthy work environment, most underframes have a sit and stand function that allows you to vary positions. Also, this series has been tested and approved for professional use, so it’s perfect in all types of offices."
