Good looking and decent quality for the priceErnestoGood looking and decent quality for the price. Easy to assemble and sturdy.5
Good quality with valuebruceGood quality construction with value5
OkGeogiPro-all wood. Con-not the strongest. Bought to use in playroom, wanted non-country nor old fashion-simple, clean lines. Do wish this was a little higher end looking but will be ok. I might add molding to make it look more high end.4
Perfect solutionKathleenI have a lot of things to store. This gets it all on shelves, nice and tidy.5
HemneskellyFairly complex instructions that can be difficult to understand. I’m pretty experienced Ikea assembler but there are aspects of the instruction’s diagrams that are pretty confusing and unclear4
Nice bookcaseCraigReally nice and sturdy pieces except for side panels. Came with some damage,4

Usual IKEA ExcellencejamesJust good value and straightforward thinking.5
Great value!MitchellA good looking, solid bookshelf; love the two-color design. Easy to assemble by myself, and when mounted to the wall (with the supplied hardware) this is as solid a shelf an others at many times the price.5
Looks beautiful I’m my newJaimeLooks beautiful I’m my new office5
BookshelfKirstenNice looking bookshelf5
It is just what I neededALICEI’m using it as a pantry area. Now I can see everything I have without having to shine a light and move things around. The shallow depth is perfect.5
Hemnes BookcaseDavidThis is a nice large bookcase with more than usual capacity. It is well made out of wood so it seems to be stronger than particle board furniture. I had to occasionally look ahead a few steps in the instructions to make sure I had certain pieces properly oriented, but other than that, assembly was just the usual challenge. Good value for the money.4
Don't botherJENNIFER M.I have two of these bookcases, they were fine for a short time, then after less than 2 years, they have completely fallen apart. I actually was using a hammer and nails to try to hold it together, but the shelving just collapses under the weight of books... Which you'd think it should be fine holding. If you're looking for a bookcase to hold books, don't get this one. If you're hoping to have it hold bags of feathers, then maybe it'll be worth it.1
A very functional bookshelfMathildeI was looking for a good looking bookcase with adjustable shelves, to accommodate different size books and this one works perfectly for that.The simple and elegant design also works perfectly5
Beautiful unitKimberlyThis unit is a beautiful addition to our home. I must add though, ensure all parts are in the box. Ours was missing all hardware an the middle shelf that supports the unit. I still give it 5 stars as the end product is a solid thing of beauty.5
A perfect addition to any roomBrendaThis versatile shelf is beautiful with the mix of unfinished wood and white. It could easily be used in any room of your house from the kitchen, living room to the bedroom. It is very sturdy and simple to put together. We originally bought 2 and loved it so much we bought 2 more.5
Great BookcasesGERALDThe book cases are a first rate product. The quality and beauty of the red color are impressive.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 tree species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. 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.
