The unit is working wellEleanorThe unit is working well in my kitchen. Assembly was okay and it looks good in the location I chose for it. I wish the shelves had the option to be adjustable, but that's not a huge deal.4

Perfect!PHYLLISI wanted a set of shelves to bring order to my creative corner. This set is perfect! Simple, clean design and enough shelves to hold various projects in plastic bins that I work on to fill my Etsy shop with treasures. The design allows for the shelves to be held together securely.5

Poorly-aligned holes in uprights made for a miserable assembly experience.Eric K.You'd think that drilling holes down the center of a strip of wood would be relatively easy for a manufacturer to do well -- but this shelving unit shows that IKEA is not up to the task. The holes in the uprights were sometimes centered and sometimes not, and in one case this required a bit of home woodworking (using far more in the way of tools than came in the boxes) to correct. If the price were half of what it is, I might not gripe too much -- but for this price, it's completely inexcusable for IKEA's factory to be so incredibly sloppy. It's also important to note that these shelves look to be solid slabs in the product photos, but are actually made of thin sheets of metal wrapped into square tubes at the front and back -- this means that they sag when weight is put anywhere other than the ends, front, or back of the shelves.2
Simple, lightweight shelves. Truthful toDAVDSimple, lightweight shelves. Truthful to the materials used. Very easy and quick to put together.5
Great and multipurpose!Kate M.I bought a couple of these for toy storage in the basement, for which they work great with the Ikea bins. Then I was trying to figure out what to put the kids' snacks on in the corner of the kitchen that would be sturdy and blend in, so I got another one for there as well. We've been using them for a couple months for toys and about a month for snack, no complaints!5
Beautiful ShelfMallory E.Love this shelf. It is good quality and nice and sturdy. I used it as a book shelf and for my collection of plants.5
Fairly easy to put together.CynthiaFairly easy to put together. Very Stable. Perfect size for what I wanted. I am very happy with this shelving unit.5
I needed some sort ofFRANCESI needed some sort of shelves for my laundry room. This was exactly what I was looking for. It holds all my laundry accouterments and fits perfectly in my laundry room. I was so happy when I found this and am so totally satisfied with it. Thank you.5
I'm waiting for this!Victoria A.I bought 2 of the smaller shelve stands of this and I love them. It was quite easy to assemble now I'm just waiting for this! I'm using them in the classroom and it looks so beautiful and enough space for all the things I may need.5

For students by students

Live tight, move often, and careful what you spend money on? Then EKENABBEN shelving unit may be something for you. We asked different college students to help us out in the development work. It made EKENABBEN much better than we anticipated, and we got a lesson in thriftiness.

Being a student can be tough. No matter where you study, you probably have too little money, a lack of space, and a need for smart storage. That was our starting point when we began working with EKENABBEN.

Hi, we’re IKEA, and we need your help

“We put up notes at a university and came in contact with pupils from different countries,” tells Sara Montes from IKEA. She and the development team visited the students and got to see how they lived. “We realized that many of them want flexible and adaptable storage solutions since they don’t have the luxury of having a piece of furniture with only one function or just because it looks good. They also want to be able to find their stuff fast; books, papers and other things you need when you’re in a hurry and have to rush off to lectures.”

When one plus one equals three

“When we presented the prototypes to the students, we were curious to hear if they preferred a lacquered or raw wood frame. After some reasoning, they gave thumbs up to the raw version – for a good reason,” says Sara. Untreated wood is easier to paint if you want to create an own, unique look or simply just refresh if you want to resell your EKENABBEN. “It’s an example of collaboration at its best. The untreated wood frame made it possible for us to keep the price down and at the same time create a piece of furniture that easily can be inherited by someone else when the needs change.”
