Love but out of stockBeverly G.I absolutely love these frames and I have purchased a lot of them. I use them for my pictures that I make. Do you have any idea when these will be back in stock and I am praying that you are not discontinuing them.5
Exceptional!BonnieI was really pleased by the quality of this frame.The extra attention to detail and versatility was above and beyond. It really coordinates well with modern design. Love this frame. Plan to purchase more.5
Birch Effect FramesSunnyFor the price the frames are great quality! They’re real wood, look beautiful and are exactly what I was wanting. My only complaint is with the mechanism used to hold the back in place. They are small pieces of metal that are just kind of stabbed into the wood and you have to be very careful when bending them in and out of place or they will come right out of the wood. I had few come out but plan on fixing them with a little glue to keep them in place.5
Great valueAnnetteI did not realize that this was not actually glass and it turned out to be even better for me that it wasn't. I framed a canvas print and it fit the mat exactly right. Really pleased with end result.5
Perfect Frames!johnI discovered the Hovsta frames when I bought a piece from an artist friend and she had framed the piece using one. I was even more delighted when I looked them up and found the variety of sizes they come in. Only downside is they can be hard to get when you order online as I have to because there is not a store in Oklahoma. (Yet?)5
Just what I needed forMelissaJust what I needed for a painting I finished!5
Very niceADOLFOI really like it5
Nice frameSUSANNice frame5
Not as sturdyCELIAI LOVE the look of this! However the frame is not as sturdy as I was hoping. I found that it must always be handled with two hands, and that it's wobbly/loose feeling if even moved with one hand.3
EhLacey C.It’s ok. I got it home and don’t love how it looks but it’s fine I guess4
Wish it was real woodJane F.These frames have been a mainstay for me for years. I do believe the original ones were real wood. Now they are all picture wood. They still look good until you get up really close. I understand why IKEA would go to a faux wood, but I miss the real thing.3
High quality product. Great color!LeeHigh quality product. Great color!5
Love the frames but shipping stinksBeverlyI love these frames and have been ordering them for craft project and they are perfect for what I'm doing. However the shipping is horrible. The boxes are too big and they don't put any packaging in them and every time I receive an order there are damaged frames in the box. Three times in a row this has happened. Please take care of this!!5
Love this frame!MELISALove this frame!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 fiberboard?
Fiberboard is a stable and durable material made of leftover wood from the wood industry. A durable outer layer of paint or laminate is added to the board. The difference between various types of fiberboards, such as HDF and MDF, is mainly the thickness, yet also how impact-resistant they are – and this determines what we use them for. So regardless if it’s a bed, a wardrobe or your new bathroom cabinet, the leftover wooden fiber becomes a resource instead of going to waste.
