It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Billy is Better!RICHARDYears ago, I constructed my first bookcase out of plywood. I remember having to make detailed plans with measurements and sawing, screws and sawdust. The Billy Bookcase system is a vast improvement over the DIY alternative with its precisely measured material, appropriate hardware and strength of the finished project. I would highly recommend the Billy system for home libraries of all kinds, including books, videos and music collections.5
Always superbGregI’ve purchased at least a dozen Billy bookcases in different combinations (short, short with doors, and tall), and have never been disappointed. Easy to build, flexible and sturdy. I’m sure I’ll buy more at some point and you should too.5
can"t go wrong with billyYvonneSimple, classic and exactly what i was looking for5
Great productDawnI have purchased 8 of these for my loft to display books and other collectibles. So easy to put together! I got the assembly down to 10 minutes each and we added Oxberg doors to 3 of the units. Would buy them again!5
Best shelving and quality at this price point, but could use one key featureKEVINThis is in regards specifically to the 41" tall BILLY bookshelves. Fantastic quality, went together as expected, solid feel. Look great. It would have gotten 5* but I am only giving it 4 stars because the shelf extender that is advertised on the website is not compatible with the smaller height BILLY bookcases. It's only for the 79" tall version. I didn't find that out until I attempted to put it together. IKEA needs to update the smaller heights to accommodate the shelf. Otherwise, great product.4
We bought 3 and oneTheresaWe bought 3 and one was tougher to put together, but we are very happy with them. The shopping experience could certainly be easier,but Ikea was fun to visit and shop.5
Not what it seemsMICHELLENowhere in the description does it note that this bookcase is three separate pieces that don’t attach to each other in any way. Didn’t work for us at all, so we had to return. Very disappointed.2
Good purchaseFrederickGood purchase5
Look nice, medium sturdySTEPHANIEBased on reviews, seems like users don’t really use these for books. They hold a lot, look nice, affordable, easy to assemble, but at the end of the day, they are particle board covered in laminate. Nailing in the backpiece is touchy.4
Review of Billy bookshelfCarrieI really like the Billy bookshelf. In the last 6 months I have bought 5. Very sturdy and holds a lot. Very pleased with its looks and performance as a book shelf. I know it is particle board furniture but it is very inexpensive and so sturdy to be particle board. Well mad e and great value. Cheaper than Walmart and other department stores and better construction.5
Bill 94" BookcaseLINDA M.The bookcases are serving their purpose but the picture is deceptive as it appears to be one unit, not three separate 31" units. It works for what I wanted it to do but if you have an old house with uneven floors you have gaps and the overall appearance of the bookcase is not optimal.4
worth the restocking waitjustinSuch an affordable solution with a clean appearance and slim footprint! My only disappointment was the cardboard backing panel, (which was also somewhat of a pain to install by myself,) but that is a small concession for the price point. And the upside is that all the books cover it up!4
Ok good the priceVijayshreeIt looks good for the price but It is not that strong and sturdy4
It’s a bookshelf and worksAmberIt’s a bookshelf and works well as such.5
Lots of spaceALETHEAComes in 3 stand alone pieces5
Just what I was looking forCristina C.I wanted a skinny standing height shelf, table or bookcase. I found this and it was just the right height and depth and the price was right. It was easy to put together and is holding up well.5
Everything I expected.AnneEverything I expected.5
Plastic tighteners broke during assemblyAlexanderBought 4 of these. Two plastic screws tightened broke during assembly.2
Worth ItAbbyGreat for the money!4

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 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.
