Perfect size for storing vinylsJudithI bought this specifically for the purpose of storing our records since our collection had outgrown the little shelf we were using. The shelfs are perfectly sized for this. I'd had my eye on another, similar shelf from a different home goods store, but it was much more expensive so I was excited to get a better deal. That being said, I've bought plenty of IKEA pieces in the past and know that sturdiness is not a strong suit and instructions are somewhat lacking in specificity. With that in mind, I tried to be as gentle as possible when putting the shelf together. However, after some confusion with the instructions where I had to separate pieces I'd put together, I ended up with a couple of small cracks and bumps. Luckily it was tucked in the back and I was able to remedy with duct tape and white paint so you can't really tell. Overall, I'm happy with it but know I'll probably end up replacing it with a sturdier piece sometime down the road.4
Great for booksLisaWe love this shelf in our son's room for his books. It looks great, especially with the wood legs on the bottom. It's a little unsteady on the carpet but we anchored it to the wall so there's no chance of it tipping over.5

FrustratedSALLYI have assembled ikea furniture for years, including a kitchen. This piece baffled me. None of it fit together , then the particle board fasteners broke off, rendering it useless. I gave up and will return it. First time I’ve ever returned a partially assembled piece of furniture.1
NiceLINUSJust what I needed for storage space Easy to put together Sturdy enough for stacking5

simple designSANDYI like it. Looks good and easy to put together.4
perfect for holding recordsEmilyThis shelving unit is perfect for my space, it’s like the popular Kallax but not as much depth. It fits vinyl records perfectly and it was super easy to build. Highly recommend5
Supper easy to assembleEDWARDThis was so easy to assemble. I use it as a night stand next to my guest bed. I can display things below while having a clock and light on the top.5
GarbageDavidPlastic dowels snapped while assembling.1
EKET AMAZING ENGINEERINGRobertEKET AMAZING ENGINEERING. As we assembled these cubes, I kept saying the engineering is amazing. Such an improvement over past experiences from 15 years ago. High quality. Looks great. Very functional.5
This is a solid effectiveJohnThis is a solid effective piece of furniture - I use it as storage and as a step-system for my older cats trying to reach a window - the brackets and optional feet are a nice plus. The surfaces are very smooth, but so far none have slipped off the others. Best assembled with a rubber mallet.4
Great ProductAmericaLove it!5
Pretty sturdySTEVENI put a mini clothes dryer on to. Despite the unbalanced (at times) drum spinning on top it there is no rocking or swaying. Oh, and easy to put togeather.5

DisappointingLeilaniI love the Kallax line but this one is awful. It doesn’t assemble easily, doesn’t feel strong, doesn’t fit the kallax storage cube accessories. Just disappointing all around2
Love love love eket!BeccaWhen we redid our daughters’ room we needed to replace their Kallax bookshelf with something only slightly narrower. I was pleasantly surprised to find that although the eket is smaller, it holds way more books! This would be because the inner and outer walls are thinner. The eket takes some more muscle to put together than kallax but you can get more functionality from the eket. Plus we liked that they have backs so our kids don’t lose things in the abyss behind the unit. Also included are the stand-off posts so it can be flush against your floor trim and the wall! My new favorite go-to piece!5
Good looking designCarlitosntIts versatility and selection of colors is a game changer. It's good I could customize my layout to my wish.5
Assembly is nightmare!!!sunshine247I appreciate the concept that tried to eliminate the amount of bolts and nuts for assembly, however, the pieces are not easy to fit together even by following the instruction exactly. Assembly requires a lot of brute force to fit panels together. Very frustrating. After trying to assemble pieces using my own weight and other non-conventional means, I broke two bookcases and I now wish IKEA covered for emotional damage and wasted time.1

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.

New technologies, new hobbies, a new family member ... both small and large changes affect life and people's needs at home, especially when it comes to all the things that we need space for. Petra Kammari Enarsson is a product developer at IKEA and often visits the homes of customers to experience their everyday living and how good storage can make life at home a little easier. She remembers a family in Copenhagen which expanded every other weekend with the daughter from a previous relationship. ”She didn't have her own room, but the family had a solution where she had a loft bed in the living room and her private things were in a chest on the floor”. Petra thinks it's a good example of how more and more people are living in small spaces, and that a large part of everyday living takes places in the living room where we want things to be both practical and stylish.

Flexible furniture for new needs

Another obvious trend around the world is that many people move more often - just as Petra did when she was young. ”The problem is that a lot of storage furniture is so inflexible – upon moving or new needs arising, they can't be adapted. This means storage isn't optimal and it's difficult to keep track of all your things”. These insights inspired Petra and her colleagues to start looking at a more flexible and personal storage solution – something that can easily be updated so that people don't have to buy new furniture as soon as something in life changes. Petra then started to think about those fishing boxes she had when she was young and which were so easy to stack and move as needed. What if you could make a piece of furniture which consists of various smart modules that can be easily moved around, removed and added to?

Building with blocks

Petra and her team started by ordering cardboard boxes in various sizes. They took the boxes to different room environments where they moved them around like building blocks – stacking and combining them in various ways. The team also researched detailed facts about storage: on average, how many magazines do we have at home? What’s the ideal height for people to put down their mobile phones? ”Many of us put keys, telephones or bags in a specific place when we come home. We usually do it automatically, without thinking about it”, says Petra. The height that seems to suit most people is 31½", so a shelf at that height was a given in the mix of shelves, drawers and cabinets in different colors and styles that eventually became the EKET storage series. ”I'm so pleased that we chose to prioritize playfulness and freedom of choice with all the colors and sizes of EKET”, says Petra, who's looking forward to visiting more homes. ”I think that the customers will find lots of exciting combinations that we haven't even thought of!”.

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 constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
