Great piece of furniture. UnbeatableVivianaGreat piece of furniture. Unbeatable price5
niceBarbaraWe have purchased Besta cabinets for our whole house over the years. This is the first time I've used this tall cabinet. It's more wobbly than the shorter ones, but it's ok for what I needed it for. You cannot hang it on the wall.4

Good storageMarkNice unit5
FlimsyJulioThis unit is absolutely flimsy. Unlike many other IKEA units that I have purchased and assembled, this one is a nighmare, even with shelves, doors and drawers, it remains flimsy. Reading IKEA's responses... well, it's not easy to disassemble both, put it in the car and drive 30 miles to the next IKEA store to get what? The rest of the system has the same color, it's BESTA after all. Add reinforcement, built better products again! 1
VERY UNSTABLE TroyI thought I did something wrong during the assembly. I checked and double checked, and no, I did everything right. This thing wobbles side-to-side. It’s not stable at all. I plan on adding additional lateral bracing in the back, but the sad thing is I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO!!!! So frustrating. C’mon IKEA, do better!1
Not great when hanging on the wallEmilioFit and finish of the parts wasn't great. Then I went to hang it on the wall with the rails (not included; you need to buy them separately). I needed a lot of shims (not included with either the rails or the unit) because if your wall isn't absolutely flat (and trust me, it's not likely to be), the tabs won't go into the slots on the rails. It would be very easy for IKEA to include some plastic U-shaped shims to go around the screws near each slot. When this thing is mounted to the wall, all the weight on anything but the top shelf loads 6 plastic clips - you know, the ones you turn half a turn with a flat screwdriver. They used to be cast aluminum, now they are plastic, and it doesn't give me confidence that this can support rated loads. On the floor, these are nice and sturdy.2
Quality went down NataliaWe use ikea for many years. And every year quality goes down. This particular piece is the worse ever. Looks ok but material is very poor. 1
Wobbly without stabilizationRonI'm a huge IKEA fan. But for some reason this unit fell short of my expectations. After assembly, the frame was very wobbly. I had to use my own corner frames (I screwed "L" brackets on each corner in the back). Once I did this, it resulted in the solid frame I normally expect from IKEA. I couldn't see that any parts were defective. The "cams" didn't seem to grip quite as firmly as usual, but they held in place fine. It seemed like the design didn't have any stabilization, since the back just slides in grooves, with no other attachment to the frame. Anyway, it was fine after I used my own brackets. Just unusual for the usually perfect IKEA designs. 3
besta is the bestPeteras a longtime ikea fan, i’ve always wondered about besta but thought it was basically a bunch of TV units. but now i understand that it’s a really well designed storage system that can be used for almost anything. i mounted this above my desk and it holds way more than i could have expected. now i’m looking around the house for places that i can add more of these!5
BeståMary BethI needed a box to hold my items 4
Poor Quality Compared to Previous YearsKatieI have 3 units from 2013 and the finish isn't as glossy as before--quite rough to touch. The screws that you have to screw in are so soft that they strip (the instructions say no power drill for this reason but still it's difficult). Ended up having to use a wrench to twist them fully in or they don't fit properly with the plastic holders. 2
Craft roomCareyUsing the besta system for a craft room, works wonderful and is very clean with clean lines.5
ShelfShaleenaI love this shelf am I getting more of this item.5
Well made and versatileNikolaosAn excellent cabinet choice that is well made, sturdy and very versatile. Comes in different sizes for varying needs. One of the best IKEA products.5
Quality isn’t what it used to beKittyBought this unit to add to an existing unit and noticed the finish isn’t the same as previously purchased. Lesser quality.3
Versatile!KathrynWith the besta units you can create so many different size and color combination variations.5
Quality decliningReneeI've put together over 3 dozen Bestå cabinets and this is the first time I've had issues. The quality has certainly gone down. First, the cam screws were too large for the pre-drilled holes. They would only go in a quarter of the way. Whatever metal is being used for the cam screws is very cheap, as the screws began to bend when I tried tightening them after I couldn't continue to screw them in any farther. You can't screw them in using any power tools because the metal is so soft that the grooves for the screw driver/power drill become distorted and misshapen and you can neither screw in or unscrew the cam screws. I had to finally use a pair of pliers to get the screws in. Second, the grooves/guides that are cut into the sides, top, bottom and backing of the cabinet are all misaligned. The backing got stuck half way when trying to add it and then I couldn't get it back out. Someone tried to help me remove it, but it broke. If I could add photos, I would. Not what it used to be!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.

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 constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
