Color was offJennifer W.Opened the box to find just about every piece to have a blue color coming through the white. It looks horrible1
THE BESTJedayaI wish we could leave pictures5
Bathroom bookcaseABEI purchased the dark gray stained Hemnes sideboard and made it into a double vanity in my bathroom. I wanted the dark gray Hemnes bookcase to go with the sideboard for bathroom storage. I waited for about four months until I decided to just buy the white one. It turned out to be blessing in disguise. I like the white much better because I think the gray may have made our bathroom feel darker and smaller. I am pleased with my purchase.5
Tall and beautifulChristinaIt fit perfectly in the little space while adding so much height to the dining room. Super easy to build and very solid5
BookcaseMERLYNI have been looking for the dark gray Hemnes bookcase since last year to no avail, so I bought the white and stained it gray and I am happy with the results.5
Great. Easy to put together.CynthiaGreat. Easy to put together. Side wood panels are quite thin though.4
Poor customer serviceSharonI bought this and assembled myself. The two panels for the back were about an 1/8th of an inch too long to fit in the back of the bookcase. I was unable to get help by phone or email from IKEA. I had a neighbor cut one off. Also the paint is very thin and since it is wood not particle board the knot holes will probably bleed through.1
PERFECT PERFECTVictorthey were exactly what my library needed.5
Suits my needsKarlaSturdy with very adjustable shelves (except for the center one, it doesn't move). I like how the shelves are set into place. Wish it was just a bit wider, but the height works5
Beautiful, quality pieceWilliamThis unit is good quality, and a great price. We're currently using it in the guest bedroom and absolutely love the way it looks!5
Hemnes bookshelfANNI love the look. A modern farm house feel. Handy plastic feet inserts that pop into the bottom of the feet make it easy to adjust for stability on an uneven floor. Pairs lovely with the double door glass Hemnes bookshelf.5

Great shelvesKatrinaSturdy ( made of real wood), functional and priced right.5

Lovely, solid wood bookcase. VerySusanLovely, solid wood bookcase. Very good value for the price and a nice piece of furniture.5
Solid BookcaseMarieThis bookcase was easy to assemble by myself. I was impressed with the hardware and design used to connect the pieces together. The materials and method used in its assembly resulted in a solid and sturdy piece of furniture. Its non-standard dimensions fit perfectly against a narrow wall in my office. I am very happy with this purchase.5
Great StorageJoeI really wanted a Billy storage shelf, but they were out of stock. This was similar and fit a specific area within my office. Directions were easy to follow and the end product is sharp, very happy that this item was in stock!5
Great Buy!JulioNeeded something new and updated for our living room. Perfect size for the right price.5
Great bookcasePatriciaBought 2 narrow bookcases to add to the bookcases we already have — we filled a wall with 3 narrow and 2 wide Hemnes bookcases and they are perfect for the space and our needs.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.
