Takes a lickin" but keeps on tickin"SHANNONI bought my first Ivar shelf over 15 years ago and it's still going strong. I've moved them cross country twice (so easy to pack and move!) and they've rotated between a variety of rooms in my homes. Just bought another one because they magically fit in the closets of our new home to maximize the useful space in the closet. Love this system of products!5

Ivar is greatBettyI love Ivar. I've had the system for about 35 years. I keep adding sections, moving them around, and changing the shelf configuration. The pieces I buy now still work with what I bought so long ago.5
Perfect shelfMorganThis worked perfectly. We’ve used Kallax and Expitid shelving for years. This is so much more versatile. Hopefully ikea will keep these as a staple because you can make all kinds of adjustments and additions.5
Great Product, but stock is so limited!!JIMWe have had IVAR shelves in our home for over 20 years. It is sturdy, quite functional and ages beautifully. The only problem is the global inventory problems affect IVAR too.5

Ivar = form and functionKARAI’ve been using Ivar shelf/cabinet pcs since 2000 and think they are a functional, versatile, good looking and affordable storage system. I continue to add more pcs to different rooms in my home.5
House of IVARSheilaI have had Ivar products for decades. I continue to modify and add to my collection. They are very easy to use and very flexible. They are also an excellent value for the price. I see they have made the shelf ends metal instead of plastic. The plastic has held up fine over the years but I think this will be an improvement.5
I love this shelving system!MICHAELThese are most versatile shelving units. Bought my first in Ottawa in the 1980s. I just keep adding and finding new uses for Invar shelves.5

Have loved Ivar for decades!EleanorWe love the flexibility, and how easy it is to assemble AND disassemble for moving! We've had rooms that are wall to wall, floor almost to the ceiling, with shelves to house paperback books. We've used it in my craft room where it houses yarn, bins of beads, and books related to crafting.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.
