Stylish addition to roomPATTIEFunctionl and stylish. We have several pieces of Hemnes and very pleased.5
Tall BookshelffeliciaWhile I truly like this bookshelf, putting it together was a pain, pictures are not enough information. The color is rich, dark brown, and looks very nice in my son's bedroom. I was initially concerned about the height, but it didn't overpower his room in any way.4

Matches one I bought fromDarlaMatches one I bought from IKEA 7 years ago. Love it!5
Excellent bookshelf, recent price increaseEthanI now have four of these for my condo and they have excellent craftsmanship. The shelves do not bow even under heavy load, and they are lighter and more durable than the particle board shelves which they replaced. The natural wood finish is gorgeous. Absolutely recommend.5

Great looking bookshelf at aMONICAGreat looking bookshelf at a great price.5
One of the shelves cameSallyOne of the shelves came cracked4
I"ve had 2 of these shelves for a few years nowCourtney S.They are a huge pain. The bottom of the back of the shelf is made of a thin, cheap wood that bows. When it bows, it makes the bottom shelves unreliable. If the back had more reinforcement this wouldn't be an issue, but there are no additional reinforcements. I've really enjoyed most of my ikea furniture, but this makes me apprehensive about buying bookshelves from them in the future.1
Looks goodDonnaNice bookcase. Finished on three sides, unlike some of the cheaper IKEA bookcases. It was not difficult to assemble, but I put this together with my son. It would be difficult for one person to assemble alone. Great price and value. Exactly what I was seeking.5
Love it!HildaThis is a perfect bookshelf for our home office. It has six shelves which is really nice.5
Quality inexpensive book shelfScottWood shelving is a little temperamental and may break if not watched closely when attaching screws and pins as detailed in instructions.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.
