Living room setJenniWe purchased two of the bookshelves plus the TV console to make a living room set. It looks amazing! My husband, son, and I worked together assembling the three pieces. Fun family project!5

Great Bookcase, Great ValueBRIANGreat Bookcase, Great Value5
Great shelf - we own 6DanaLove the shelf. Easy to assemble. Great customer service if defective part.5
Just Perfect!PAMI bought one of these to put in our kitchen to add more storage for our items. I already loved the style, but I was worried about the color. It was a perfect rich color, so I bought another one. It was the easiest piece to put together. It took maybe 20 to 30 minutes.5
I really like the lookMarshaI really like the look and design of the Havsta pieces...I have several things in different parts of the house.5
super easy to assemble, allSarahsuper easy to assemble, all wood product no particle board, great quality would totally recommend this product. great quality and great price.5
GoodJOSEFits perfect5
Great Size, Looks Amazing!ALLISONBeautiful shelving unit. Not too large, very sturdy, open back is perfect for electronic (TV) cords, but have a “backstop” to keep books from falling off. Directions were pretty easy to follow. I purchased two and placed them side by side to help fill up a wall; they are exactly what I needed and expected. Recommended.5
The whole series is fabulousAndreaIt took months to collect the whole set (pandemic shortages) but we finally finished with the last book shelf in our living room. I love these pieces. They're sturdy, super straightforward to assemble, and provide a great background for our collectibles, plants, and books. We also have the glass front display cabinets and one of the base cabinets as a display stand for a 40 gallon fish tank in the same space. Can't say enough good things about them. They made my mom say: "That's Ikea? Who knew?"5
Great for Making a Wall UnitlynneWe created a unit that fit our wall perfectly with the narrower open bookshelves and the tall glass door display cabinets. Havsta collection is sturdy and well made and easy to assemble. We love the clean look and the variety in the collection to create the look we wanted to achieve. The display cabinet has spacer pieces on the back to account for positioning against a wall with baseboards! That was a welcome surprise and really shows the consideration that went into the design. The spacers were not included for the narrow open shelf though. The anchoring kit for the open shelf does accommodate being set a little away from the wall for baseboards and what not but we still felt more comfortable adding some of our own makeshift spacers to keep the shelf in the right position and not pitching backward.5
Very niceKimberlyLike all of my solid wood IKEA furniture, this piece is a real winner! Love it!5
They are solid wood!! NoIlonaThey are solid wood!! No practical board or thin veneers. They look great in my living room on either side of a large window.4
Great for home officeKatherynLike many we are now working from home which means using our personal printer more and this is our new printer stand, paper storage, and bookshelf. One unit instead of several gives us more space to work.5
Looks greatKarenGreat item. Looks great and priced right.5
swede64We put one on each side of the bed to provide shelves in a small bedroom.4
Love, love, love!DaracatThis shelving unit is perfect in my kitchen. I bought 2. I'm using them for my bar/pantry. My house is tight and everything needs a place. This unit corrals all of my stuff. If it doesn't fit on these two shelving units, I don't need it. The color is the exact shade as the paint of my stairs. I couldn't ask for a closer match. I purchased a Hemnes shoe cabinet to go neItxt to it. I'm going to use the paint on the shoe cabinet for a better match. The Havsta shelves have a rail across the back so things don't fall down behind. I'm thinking of cutting out the baseboards behind for a more flush fit. It is super easy to assemble. I did it on my own in less than an hour. The bigger bottom is great for the booze bottles and the food stuffs are up top. I'm thinking of putting white quartz to match my kitchen on the top of the bottom part.5
LovePeg0legLove love love . The finish is more satine than gloss but if we have to we can just paint them. And yes it’s real wood .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 solid wood?

Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.

All of this results in graceful pieces of furniture with a sense of timelessness.
