Good stuffJosephLove it's function5
A Neat DesktopJuyoungThis is exactly the desktop I was looking for; durable surface, smooth texture, seamless finish, and vibrant color (variable color options).5
Easily absorbs waterBarneyLeft a glass on it over night and it is basically ruined. For the price, I would expect a more robust finish. I have had many similar style desk tops, i.e, veneer on particle board, and never had this issue.1
Great pieceLoriWorks on top of my 2 Kallax units. Using it as a cutting top for my craft room.5
Bekant desk/table topAngelFor a composite wood, it is well made and has a good finish on it. Seems as though it will hold up well to everyday wear.4
Great desk topMariaThe Hubs wanted a new desktop for his standing desk to replace the one he bought elsewhere. HE loves it, this it is better quality than the one that came with his original desk purchase from a different company.5
Excellent qualitySergiiI had to reorder table cover, because initial cover arrived with a lot of scratches. It was replaced really quickly and second cover arrived with no scratches and quality is 100% worth the money!5
Nice looking, but...PeterI purchased this tabletop yesterday and set up my computer on it this evening. I now have three pretty obvious scratches on the surface. My crime? Lifting/sliding my iMac into position instead of picking it up and setting in where it's supposed to go. Seriously, there's nothing on the bottom of the computer to scrape; the base sits on little pads. I certainly understand that this isn't top of the line office furniture, but kind of ridiculous that it's so over-the-top fragile. I suppose if this keeps up, I can hit the top surface with a coat of black stain and a couple layers of poly, but that's a lot of work for a brand new desk. The associated base seems pretty sturdy, so at least that part is good. This is the black ash veneer top. Maybe the others are more durable. Sigh. :/3
Attractive and Roomy, But Wrong For My ProjectLeahOverall the 63” Bekant is attractive with plenty of room to spread out and work as a craft table. These are issues I had (which could’ve been avoided if I’d gone to the store before ordering): I bought the Bekant top in White Stained Oak Veneer for my project specifically because I thought it would exactly match the Kallax system in White Stained Oak ’Effect.’ It’s Not the same, so if that’s your deciding factor, pick another top. The bigger issues arose when I went to attach the Adils legs and Alex drawer unit as the base instead of the Bekant under-frame. There are no corresponding predrilled holes for my design, so I mapped out where everything would go and drilled shallow pilot holes (the Bekant is only about 1/2” thick). The screws included with the legs were too long, so I used shorter ones. The bolts that come with the Alex unit to attach it to a tabletop are also too long and had no grip in the pilot holes. Despite all of my careful planning, I split the top in 2 places.4
Great table topMargaretThis table top works great for me in my craft room.5
Very comfortable chairAnabelVery comfortable chair5
table topDeeIt was what I needed but it is overpriced. The surface can be damaged easily. If it were less expensive I would have given a higher rating.3

Great desk!MelindaNow that I’m mostly working from home, I needed a large, sit/stand desk. This Bekant is so nice! Easy assembly, too. I bought the blue desktop and I love it. Super sturdy and spacious for multiple monitors.5
WonderfulLucyI was unsure of buying this. Your employee at the Atlanta store was so amazing and competent he was able to let me know the warranty and how many incredible features the table has.5
perfect size!ChristineI needed a large enough table top with the use of the adjustable legs for my sewing room table, I love this one!!5
wonderfulDebbyI’m using this as a sewing room table on top of Kallax shelf units. Works perfect. Love how nice and bright it is.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.

Material

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."
