Great frame w/ depthJonathan DWe bought this frame in variety of sizes and multiple times!!! Please, bring more frames with DEPTH for dimensional art projects. Need in variety of sizes/colors (even large ones up to 24x30 or 24x36!). Especially, white and natural wood colors. 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
EhLcIt’s ok. I got it home and don’t love how it looks but it’s fine I guess4
Great frame, great price!NicoleWe needed a frame for a very colorful piece of art. We wanted something very simple and this was perfect. 4
Hovsta FramesCathieI've bought 3 sizes of Hovsta frames. They allow you to change the depth of the item being framed depending on the placement of the mat or the spacer.5
Too bigLourdesI purchased this frame for an 11X14 art project, I'll need a wider border for the picture to fit properly.3
Measurements inexplicableAmandaIt says 16.25x20" frame but it is really 16x20". Just, why? Yes if you read the details it says 16x20 but that's not how anybody else would describe a frame size and so there's no reason to dig down, you'd think. What the extra quarter inch on just one dimension is for in the product name is beyond me. Yeah I already had custom mats ordered to arrive when this product would arrive and had to cut an eighth inch off each side myself so maybe I'm just a bit bitter but I can take my lumps if there was a freaking reason for it. Rename this item to 16x20! Also, the photo online looks like a light yellow birch and the name is even "birch effect" but the color I actually got looks grey/cream. I was hoping to match another decor item that appears to be birch. Pretty disappointing overall.1

Picture frameRebeccaVery nice frame. Was surprised that it was plastic not glass.5
love itElitaThese frames are great! The light birch added some much needed definition in the gray and white guest bedroom. Perfect size for displaying artwork.5
Description of size is mislabeled for 12 1/4 by 16 1/4JenniferThe size 12 1/4 by 16 1/4 fits a photo 7 3/4 x 9 1/4 (with the mat), which is NOT what the website instructs (8x12). Ikea, just include the product photo as it would be purchased in store. The descriptions are on the item.1
It is not glass, theBelindaIt is not glass, the plastic is not thick enough4

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 fibreboard?

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. This determines if we will use them for bed frames, sofa frames, kitchen fronts, wardrobe doors, or something completely different.
