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.

Great BookcaseHERSCHELThe bookcase is well made, has substantial shelves that hold a lot of weight, and was easy to assemble. I'm very happy with it.5
SleekMichelleJust what we needed! It was easy to assemble, and looks great. My only criticism is that the back “boards” of all Billy’s are weird and look cheap. It would make a difference to see something else done to replace the folded up, thin piece of backing provided5

Sturdy and easy to assembly!BrendaOur first Billy/Oxberg was purchased in 2011, but sold when we moved away. We chose the Billy/Oxberg again and the quality is still excellent with a clean and modern look! Love the ease of assembly and the simple, clean style! Oh, the shelves really are strong enough to hold rows of hard cover books!5

A new Billy to join our homeTERI L.When we married in 1994, we bought a Billy for our first apartment. When we purchased our first home, several more Billies joined. After enjoying those bookcases for over a decade, we sold them as we were moving cross country. (They sold within an hour) Over Christmas weekend, we decided to change up our home offices. Two days and a gallon of paint later, my office transformation was nearly complete. I needed a storage solution for my small office and this time, I wanted pretty glass doors to keep dust and the occasional cat out. It was time for a journey to IKEA. Our nearest IKEA is a three hour drive away. We made the trip with our KN95 masks in place. We just barely fit the boxes in our small SUV along with a small rug that really ties the room together. Assembly was not a problem as the picture pages style instructions now seem like old friends. In the before times, I would take an entire day to make the journey to IKEA, enjoy lunch and dinner while taking in the entirety of the store. I look forward to the day when it will be prudent to spend the entire day in IKEA again.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 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.
