Good value and looks great!Stephanie D.All the well packed pieces arrived when promised. I hired a very efficient Tasker who put it together in about 3 hours. The dark blue color is beautiful and the bookcase looks great.5
Love the style and pop of colorMarciaMy home has a lot of gray and white tones, so I love the pop of color and style that this bookcase adds to my living room.5
Gray color bookshelfCINDYThe bookshelf look just like the picture after it was put together. It took about 1 hour to assemble it. It looks very nice and sturdy if you nailed it to the wall. Also have enough space for books and other items for display.4

Classy!LANAGorgeous in my room! Bought 4 of these and placed them at a corner. Then filled them with books and treasures. Transformed my room! Get raves from everyone. Might buy another one too! Used Taskrabbit to put them together and attach to wall. Best decision ever!!!5
ElegantSURELLANo, it’s not the most expensive piece of furniture in my house but it’s classy and makes my books look like they’re in a very expensive library room. I upgraded the handles to make it perfect. Love it!5

Blue BillyKarenWe love these bookcases with the glass doors!5
great bookcaseVanessalove it5
Go ahead and buy the Billy Cabinets!KimberlyAwesome cabinets for a collection to be displayed. Will be purchasing more! Only issue we had was that you are always out of these and had to literally jump in when they sent the text that were back in stock. They were gone again in no time! We waited a long time to get the navy ones!5
Kitchen pantry subLEAThe Billy product can be used in a multitude of ways. My purchase was moved into the kitchen to provide more pantry space and it fits perfectly. The only thing I wish they had more of is to provide more cushion pads for the door when closing. Two gel like pads (less than the size of toothpaste) is not enough for households with kids. I would definitely recommend5
Great CabinetKellyLove this Billy. The color is awesome. This is the second one I have purchased and placed it directly beside the first one. Looks great!!5
I love everything about it!BettyIt was out of stock forever! It may still be out of stock, but I was on the IKEA waiting list. When I was notified I jumped on it. Had to go to the distribution center to get it, no big deal. I love it!!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.
