Perfect in every way!ConnieI love Billy! I have 10 units in three rooms in my house. They are so easy to assemble and look great. I trimmed mine out to make them look like built-ins. They are the perfect size, and when I had to cut one down in width, it came out perfect. 5

Disappointing experienceArthurMy bookcase is from 2018, so this extra shelf should (and does) fit. The included metal support pins and the shelf cutouts these pins rest on are exactly the same design as the original shelves that came with my bookcase. However, the decrease in quality from the original shelves is very noticeable: the cutouts are rough and unfinished, the pins have sharp jagged edges you can cut yourself on. It took me excessive force & fiddling to fit the extra shelf over the (included) pins. A very disappointing experience with a basic item. Definitely not recommended until this quality control issue is addressed.2
Poor quality controlArthurI've assembled at least a dozen Billy bookcases over the years and never had problems with their shelves until now. Extra shelves are presumably the same one that come with bookcases, but my particular shelf had very rough/uneven cutouts, so that I had to use an unreasonable amount of force to fit them over the metal pins supporting the shelf. The pins themselves looked uneven with sharp jagged edges one can easily injure yourself on. The decrease in quality is very noticeable compared with the shelves/pins included with the bookcase. I'm not sure if this is a result of changed design or simply poor quality control. I'm sure the shelf will serve its purpose once installed, but this was a rare disappointing experience with an IKEA Billy product. Definitely not recommended unless this issue is addressed!2
Books shelf replacement pieceKarenDuring a move we damaged one of the shelf pieces. We we pleasantly surprised that we could just buy the needed replacement piece. Very easy to pick up in the store.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.
