Much Much Better Than ExpectedWalterThe quality of this big bookshelf is much better than what I expected. No missing parts, easy to assemble, and good quality materials used. The only minor issue that I encountered was in the middle corner section when the bottom metal junctions were added in the floor. Adding these metal corner brackets in the floor gets the whole shelf out balance and tilted. Other than this minor issue, this bookshelf is perfect.5

Not sure if its the quality or the shippingNathanielSeveral piece were broken when I opened the boxed, I already someone here to put it together and we made do. There are some rather large gaps at the seams. Its pretty cheap material.2
Great Bookshelf for Funko Pops!!JorgeGreat Bookshelf for Funko Pops!!5
Love!!!ChristineThese bookshelves look beautiful. They were so reasonably priced for their size. Like all Ikea furniture, the assembly was a bit challenging and really needs two people. But they were worth it!5
Great dealAlvaroExcellent product and the best service at the store.5
More sturdy than I thoughtMariahMore sturdy than I thought it would be5
Just what I was looking forBrendaLove this set of bookcases - I opted to just assemble each one and lay them all flat against the wall (without the corner installed at an angle). They consume a wall and was just what I was looking for to display my collectibles. Nice!5
Billy unitsEdGood value, good product. I miss the older corner Billy cases that fit flush to the wall.5
Perfect solution!!!SaraI bought it to hold the books at my daughter’s bedroom and was just Perfect!! Super easy instructions Great Results!!5
Perfect BookcaseTabbycat03The Billy was very easy to put together and is really sturdy. We love the minimalist look, which allows focus on our books and other knick-knacks we are displaying. I'm not sure how the quality will hold up over time, but so far, so good!5
Adding extra shelves it has worked perfect in my sVerified BuyerBought the shelves and other items to organize my craft room. Ikea makes so many options available for this concept5
BeautifulVerified BuyerWe have the same cabinets in our livingroom with doors. The new system was used to create a library office and now housed all my vintage books. Love5
They are ok. Don’t be sold by the “corner” unit.DianeThese bookcases will be ok once we trim them out. They are basically cheap bookshelves connected by hardware. The “corner” unit is a small bookshelf placed at an angle and connected with flimsy hardware. We could have done that with any bookshelves. There is a big corner gap behind the unit that will collect dust until I build a cover for the top. Disappointed.2

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 veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
