DANGEROUS PRODUCT! Glass Door Shattered Randomly!ChristopherI purchased this in Feb. 2021 and last night (2/14/2024) one of the glass panes on the door made a loud pop noise and the glass was shattered, but still holding together. Nothing was touching the glass when this happened and I had not opened the door in more than a week. Had the glass crashed to the floor, my cat could have been injured, as he was sitting near it at the time of the breakage. The glass barely held itself together as I carefully removed the door in order to capture the falling glass into a large cardboard box. I have the dark red model and it appears this color is no longer offered, so a replacement door is not likely available. I purchased this with cash, in person at the Stoughton, MA store and my receipt is long gone. I no longer trust the remaining three glass panes and I will likely remove the other door. I am extremely disappointed this happened and I do not recommend purchasing this cabinet. 1
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
Beautiful Display CabinetSheilaI purchased this cabinet along with the single one to display my collection of purses. It’s so nice to finally be able to see them all.. It took my husband two afternoons to assemble. He did increase the baseboard opening size to accommodate our taller baseboards and bolted the cabinets to the wall as the cabinets are top heavy once the doors are installed. I bought some crystal knobs as the ones that are included are not to my taste. In spite of the high shipping cost I am pleased with the quality and value.5
Billy OxnergJeriI have Four of these and love them. Saving for one more. Sewing room and Pyrex collection. Love them.5
PerfectBridgetJust what I was looking for, and expected.5
Great for books, DVDs, CDs, etc.MarkIt's a great size for everything I want to store, and I appreciate the choice of wood or glass additional shelves (although I wish wood shelves were not included so it wouldn't be wasteful if I wanted all glass ones). I think the white "paper foil" is too flimsy, so just be careful with it.5
Great shelving for great priceBruceWe uses 3 sets of Billy bookcases with extension units to reach our 9’ ceilings. They were perfectly aligned and went together easily. We added painted trim to created a “built-in” look. Our friends cannot believe they started out as IKEA bookcases, they think we spent thousands on this project! We also installed the glass doors and used upgraded knobs and heandles to add to the illusion.5

Perfect cabinet for my knit/crochet yarnsCarltonPleased with look and function5
Gorgeous bookshelf with elegant lookRodrigoSince I wanted a bookshelf but also protect some glass / electronic items, this product resulted in a perfect fit with low reflection and good amount of storage space.5

Very niceGraemeLooks great in kids bedroom, he displays his Lego Technics. Love the fact that it's designed to fit over baseboard.5
Love theseGiulianaThese are great. I have 2 of them and 1 of the single styles- all with doors. Easy to put together. I do it mostly alone.5
Won’t find these anywhere else.SofiaNot at this price point at least bc of the glass doors. The delivery and install, is what made them very expensive so heads. These are not easy to put together, takes 4-6 hrs for a seasoned handy man to do a set. I bought 4, I know. Furthermore whether you drive to an Ikea or pay for delivery, it’s gona cost around $300, bc the boxes need a 15’ bed at minimum and that requires a Uhaul trailer. Add some third party LED strip lights, and you got a winner though first class.5
Great inexpensive cabinetDeniseBought two units to use as a display case. They look great. Would love to see an option for glass shelves and lighting.5
Perfect shoes organizerManuelaWas perfectly design for all my favorites shoes. I love it's.5
Worked out perfectly!PamelaThese shelves are perfect! They make a room look so nice and organized.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.
