Nice ShelvingAbbottNice shelving for the price.5
Use to be $14EmA multibillion dollar (private no less) company. You are supposed to be happy that it used to be $30? Greed under cover of inflation. 2
I’m hooked!RobynLove the Avar system! So easy to customize any space. Such a genius idea! I did permanently attach to the wall for safety.5
Very GoodNeilThere's a reason this system has been around for decades... Very easy to assemble and flexible options for setup. The only downside is that some of the legs are warped so, one needs to check those before purchasing.5
Added IVAR unitsJanetteEasy to assemble by one person. Easy to add the next unit and more units. Perfect garage storage with thousands of drawer bins on the shelves. 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
Easy assembly PatWas easy to assemble, just a note the pegs are hiding in the grove of the shelves5

Great storage unit!Patriciavery happy with the results5
Great shelvingLisaI love how I can configure this shelving for my certain needs. I do wish that I could get one more of the drop down tables. I feel that is one of the best items Ivar came up with.5
Versatile and long lastingDebraI bought my first Ivar back in the early ‘90s, and have added on and switched them around in one living space after another, in multiple combinations. You can dress them up or down, and I love the new drawer and cabinet options. I just wish the clothing rods attachments were still available!5
IVAR side unitJaniceRead my review of the shelf unit. Been using these since 1994. Best product of the whole store. Customizable5
CHANGED THE DESIGN AVOID THIS VERSIONAdrianaI am writing this 4 minutes after attempting to assemble. The new version where the hardware pops out of the built in shelf guide is HORRIBLE. I picked this up at Ikea Burbank (CA) it did not come in a box and however it was stored, the metal shelf guides were bent and I am now sitting with a non working self unit. It fell over and the wood splintered before I could install the metal stabilizer. Its true you get what you pay for. Do not buy this unit, spend some more money and buy something that is better quality and wont break during assembly.1
ShelvingJaniceWe assembled this shelving and it was quick and sturdy.5
Not as easily adjustable as it seemsWeiWe loved the idea of the pins & adjustable shelves. But as it turns out, adjusting can be a PITA. When you place the shelves on the pins, they snap tight, so you have to whack the shelves up and out of the pins in order to adjust. Here is a tip... You should use a mallet and hit up where the metal rails are when you need to adjust. Simply pulling the shelves up, you risk dislodging the wooden shelve away from the metal rails. That happened to us several times. We lifted the shelves out, but the metal rail was still stuck in the pins. If this happens, you can place the metal rail back in the shelf, but it'll be loose now, so you'll need some glue. Also, many shelves came with imperfections. These pieces are not in any packaging, so I recommend buying at ikea and choose the best pieces yourself. Don't order online. Lastly, If you'll be painting, the sku stickers leave residue when you peel them, no matter how careful or slow you go, so be prepared to spend some time on cleaning residue.3
Good looking pieceJoe H.Piece looked great, and was able to paint with ease to match my Decor4
IVAR: good as everMaribethI recently renovated a space that will become a guest room/den, and I needed storage for books as well. I decided to use IVAR shelving, which I have used for more than 30 years, through 3 moves. I love it's flexibility, portability, durability, and strength.5
Looks nice but super shakyHubertAppearance is really nice but the overall shelves are shaky. The connection between the wood tablet an it metal part is not that good. I bought most of my furniture at IKEA and it’s the first time I found such poor quality and expensive2

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 tree species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. 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.
