Excellent productLuisExcellent product5
Excellent purchaseDianneI have purchased a lot of furniture that needs to be assembled. These two nightstands by Hemnes at IKEA are by sure the best quality of all the products purchased that need assembly.5
Very niceSANDRAVery nice5

We love our night stands.KristenWe love our night stands. We have 4. 2 in my bedroom and the kids each have 1.5
Nice if you want the white stain finishLaurenWhen I ordered this, I thought I was getting the solid white finish (my fault). I was purchasing it to match another that I have. This is the white stain which is not as glossy. It's still a pretty piece so I decided to keep it. Very easy to assemble.4
Perfect Bedside TablesMaryThese tables are perfect. Just enough storage in the drawers to hold incidentals. The top has enough space for a few items plus a small lamp. Easy assembly. It was a little tricky to put the first together, but once I had the first one together and knew where everything went, I had the 2nd one together in under an hour. I put both together by myself in a couple of hours.5
Good starter furniture for a first apartmentLISAEnd table looks great and functions as expected.4
bedside storageAndresI waited awhile for this to come back in stock and was notified by Ikea when it was. I was able to have it shipped to my house instead of driving for 1.5 hrs. to pick them up (I purchased 2). The boxes arrived promptly, and in perfect condition from the carrier. The pieces are packaged to protect from damage, and assembly went smoothly. I have purchased Hemnes furniture in the past, and love the solid wood construction, and classic style. I also like the little sliding tray in the top drawer for holding small items, like my eyeglasses and jewelry when I take them off to go to bed.5
Aesthetically pleasing but functionally mediocreMatthewPersonally I like the Hemnes line for its looks. What I'm not particularly fond of is how fragile and clunky the drawers feel when opening and closing. I wish Ikea would offer a premium version of its different lines so you could get the same look but, for a bit more money, you could get a bit more quality and functionality. For example: soft-close and/or quiet-close drawers, solid drawer bottoms, a sturdier back panel, narrower gaps around drawer fronts...even just a disposable squeeze vial of lube for drawer tracks/wheels and written instructions (instead of nonsensical cartoons) on how to use it. Also, something else which would be great for all furniture lines--especially considering Ikea now buys back gently used items--would be to offer exchanges on hardware. For example, if the Hemnes line pieces come standard with round gray knobs, it'd be nice if you could bring in those knobs and trade them for different but compatible colors/finishes/styles (either even exchange or partial credit toward what you want).4
Love it!Christina L.I have purchased these for other rooms in my home and am always happy with them.5
The best nightstand ever!JoyThis is the second time I’ve bought this piece because it is so useful!5
good and sturdySarahgood and sturdy5
It’s a nightstand!RachelIt does exactly what we need from it. I made the ease of assembly a 4/5 bc my cousin is the one who built it for our grandmother, and he kept making mistakes and took hours to make it. In fact we didn’t install the tiny drawer bc of it, which my grandmother didn’t really need anyways. When I got home I sped up the process by instructing him so maybe have a friend/leader to build with if you’re not the best at making stuff lmao5
I had to wait forGloriaI had to wait for a long time to purchase this item. I still think the product is overpriced.5
Poor quality profuctNATHALIAThe quality of this product is very poor. The color was supposed to be glossy but it is matte, it is poorly painted. Very bad quality and disappointing1
Small and tidyMelissaI was looking at getting the 3 drawer but you didn’t have those so opted for the 2 drawer. They are doing the job just fine.5
These end tables was fineRandiThese end tables was fine after we finally assembled it.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.
