Great file cabinetDeanThis file cabinet is the right size for our home office. Looks fantastic natural wood matches other furniture.5
Love the File CabinetMelissaTakes time to put together! but seems better made then Sauders.5
Ideal two drawer lateral file cabinet.CLAYTONI had my eye on this cabinet at Ikea for months. I wanted it in white but it was not available in that color. I am guessing because of supply chain problems. I was at Ikea recently and noticed it was available in white, so I purchased it. I have assembled it, but have not placed any files it it as yet. I am very pleased with the appearance and construction.5
Great storage cabinetChristianI was a bit reluctant to purchase this item after some reviews mentioning how difficult it was to assemble; however, it was pretty straightforward. Great quality product and exactly what I was looking for.5
I purchased 3 of theseCyndieI purchased 3 of these for my home office. Easy to assemble, love the soft close drawers and the ability to choose the different file sizes.5
This has been the worst assembly everJacquelineI've put many Ikea furniture products together in my life time but the locking mechanism instructions and the fronts to these drawers suck. I've tried several times for those drawer fronts to stay on with no success . The drawers are two huge for women to carry and manipulate .1
Finally in stock!DennisI purchased a second unit because the first unit purchased three years ago was full. I also have the upper Galant shelving units and several Billy bookcases in my home office.5
Great filing cabinetREGINAThe assembly directions were spot on - love having a combination lock instead of keys.5
Very nice traditional filling storage.Marie J.Very nice traditional filling storage. My 2 items side by side are looking pretty good in white. The drawers are working smoothly and well. Seems strong for my heavy load of storage. "Quality" (in all areas of life) seems to be hard to get these days. It should not be a luxury. This one seems to have good quality. Time of use will tell. Back Order is a problem for all the items I am looking to buy.4
file cabinetWilliamExcellent cabinet that is secure and a good looking piece of furniture .5
It is beautifulKarenWe are both skilled; this did give us a run for our money! It took some brute force to get the drawers to “click” in. But, all right now!5
Compromise for pricingAnonymousA few notes: It would have been better if this can match Billy bookcase or if the Billy line has its own filing cabinet to match its bookcase. At any event, this is our “make-do” filing cabinet that sold out so quickly. It wasn’t as hard to assemble as I thought it would be based on others’ reviews - as long as you are comfortable following its visual assembly directions. One potential danger is that this filing cabinet can and did tip forward in our use. I suspect it is because we only had files on the bottom drawer and when it was all pulled out, the cabinet fell forward because there was nothing in the top drawer to balance it safely. You may want to consider nailing it to the wall with the safety nail, etc. Definitely not safe for kids who like to climb, open drawers, etc.3
A fine file cabinet forTomA fine file cabinet for the money. Easy to assemble and a nice clean look.5
Lock doesn’t work.VirginiaI am not pleased. Put cabinet together set the lock and went to unlock the cabinet abs it will not unlock. The elevator is out in my building and I live on the 5th floor. Also we had a snow storm abs can’t get out to return the cabinet abs get another one. I hope that you will take it back when our elevator is repaired. I am looking forward to get another one soon.1
Terrible, IKEA should have built a failsafe key.Chris_1140Yea sure a lock sounds great until you actually forget the code and get locked out forever. IKEA, yall should have provided a key lock incase this happens. Many customers are not happy with this. I also tried calling customer support no one is available to pick up the phone. Whats the point of spending 3 Benjamins if I can't even open the thing1
Great Product! But missing 2 Parts!OG 2020This was easy to build with the instructions step by step. Very sturdy and great quality. Only problem is that it was missing 2 parts. I went back to IKEA the next day and they did not have these 2 missing parts #117774 and #117775. They told me they didn't have in stock and system would not allow for order. So, this is why this review received 4 starts and not 5 stars. If I can get the parts sent, then I will update to 5 stars.4
Bought for home officeShadMaryI purchased this for my home office. Assembly was fine, no issues there. However the lock worked fine for 2 uses and now has locked me out and I can't get it to open.3
Great file cabinetBamabobSturdy and large enough to hold all our files5
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 waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of 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. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
