My shelves, my way!AubrieLove the IVAR system. I can customize it to my space and design tastes. It is also easy to add more pieces to expand or condense if my mood changes.5
Nice color, easy to assembleOleksandraI like this IVAR system, so many options to assemble for your needs. Looks natural and stylish. Soooo easy to assemble. Only downside is availability.5
Good bang for the buck!WilliamI love this product I love the versatility of it and it’s easy to assemble and it looks really nice with a different variety of furniture that you have in your house.5
I inherited older shelves withJessicaI inherited older shelves with the plastic brackets, they work great. The new metal brackets are junk. The shelf pins are hard to remove so you can install the shelves. The metal side brackets fall out when you try to remove a shelf you need to adjust. The whole point of this system is adjustable shelving. I don't know why you would change a system except to save money/production costs on your end. You have ruined this system. Plus, it costs a fortune to have the vertical partitions shipped. My shipping costs were more than what I needed to spend on add-on product, so I was forced to order extra vertical pieces just in case I might need them in the future. Figure out your pricing for folks who do not live near an Ikea Store.3
Great shelving systemDanielleLove the IVAR system. It's very versatile and can be customized to fit a variety of needs. It's very sturdy and easy to assemble. And if needed, to break down and move.5
Quality Control needed!VeronicaI like the product indelible and how easily it goes together and how it can be modified to fit my situation. I had a couple of issues with the shelves. The side brackets on the shelf has little tabs that are used to secure the bracket onto the wood. I had 3 shelves different product numbers that had these little tabs that are supposed to be sunk into the wood completely folded under themselves. When I slightly grabbed the shelves to install the the bracket simply fell off. I didn’t want to have to wait for replacement shelves so I had to pry the tabs to open them and tap the bracket tabs into the wood as they should have been. I think the assembly line machine should be calibrated or worked on and QA should do their job and since this is an issue, all brackets should be pulled on for correct assembly!3
versatileKATHRYNI have several generations of shelves. The ones with metal fittings are preferable to those with plastic.5
So versatileSCOTTSo versatile5
Ikea Ruined the Ivar shelves!AblanfordReplacing the plastic edge support with the metal one is an absolute disaster. Ive had these for years and recently when I went to buy more for my business they have the NEW metal edge support. Absolute trash. I'm now expanding again and need to buy about $4000 worth of these but I cannot buy these with the metal edge support. I am now forced to find an alternative. So disappointing. These shelves were the BEST! Now they've become the absolute worst. The metal pulls out sometimes on assembly and 50% of the time on disassembly. And I am VERY experienced with these. Absolutely worthless now. Bring back the original plastic edge supports PLEASE!1
IVAR used to be better.marian6You changed IVAR. Why? I've had IVAR shelf units for many years. They are infinitely changeable, and I've assembled them different ways for different places. But now the shelves supposedly lock onto the pegs. But that makes them hard to change. I had to pound down on it to lock, then had to pound up on the shelf to move it, which made the metal on the shelf break off. I sadly had to return my recent IVAR purchase.2

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.
