Serves the purpose.BLOSSOMPlastic window - looks real glass; very good if you don’t want real glass.5
Just what we were lookingAndraJust what we were looking for.5
Love!DominiqueI love these frames! They bring “class” to anything added to it.5
Great frame.NanciThis frame is the perfect size to display my daughter's school art work. The quality is great for the price. There is a film on both sides of the glass that was a bit difficult to remove (I have short unless fingernails). A little tab would have made this task much easier.5
Awesome frameJessieTurned my favorite anime poster awesome while hanging in this frame.5
Elegant frameCookieThe frame is modern, simple, yet elegant and matches any decor.5
Good itemCARMENI like this frame, my family pictures look so pretty in these frames4
Great for national park printDIANNAWe bought a poster of an old photo taken at The Arches but had trouble finding an affordable framing option. We took a chance that we could make this work. I bought a mat black art board that was the same size as the frame and placed the white made that came with the frame on top. I then centered my poster in the space that showed inside the white mat. This created the illusion of a double mat. Once the clear top layer was in place and went into the frame it looked great. You really have to look closely to tell there is only a white cut mat board. It was a fraction of the cost of other options.4
Great frameLauraLove this frame! Looks gorgeous and is affordable. Docked 1 star because the inside white frame paper was coming off, but nothing a little glue couldn’t fix.4
ExcellentJudithExcellent product. Thanks5
Does the job but is not super sturdy.LouiseThis was the only large frame left in stock at the local ikea store. I have some silver frames I like much more, but this was all that was left and I needed a frame for my office. It works, but is not as sturdy as the others I have (including ribba) and is very obviously a manufactured wood product.4
Love IKEA framesColleenAwesome value5
Pleased with FrameKathleenI've purchased many IKEA frames, but is the first time I purchased this style. It looks nice in our home. However, the 24x36 size is quite flimsy (compared to RIBBA) and a challenge for one person to handle until all the screws are in place. Yes, I would buy again.4
Good FrameMatthewQuality for price seems good to me. Multiple sizes allowed us to create a wall of prints of various scales.5
Decent quality cheap frameLianna J.It looks quite nice and I love the modern simplicity of the frame. My only issue with it is, when I screwed in the tiny screws, per the instructions, and it warped the glass enough to be noticeable on the front. I would suggest NOT using them.4
Nice frames, light, don"t needJenniferNice frames, light, don't need to worry about breaking glass.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.
