Good looking pieceJoe H.Piece looked great, and was able to paint with ease to match my Decor4
IVAR: good as everMARIBETH G.I 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 shakyHubert B.Appearance 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
Needed to complete shelfMonica J.Works well where I need it5
Light weightWilliam G.Don't see a load statement Should be predrilled for the cross brace3
Tribute to the test of time.JENNIFERWe have had our IVAR since 2003, so 20 years! We have move it across continents, and across states. We just added another piece, as our new place had a different layout than the last 4. Still going strong 💪5

Big fan of IVARGeorge C.The IVAR shelf system is excellent. Being able to configure and reconfigure as needed is why I went with this item. Also, the reasonable pricing for the parts. I have been slowly growing my Ivar setup over the years, and pleased to see it continually supported and all,parts working together as one would expect. It looks great, the minimalist design and assembly is perfect.5
Ivar ShelvesMarilnVery nice quality wood shelving unit. Easy to assemble and wonderful adjust-ability. The only thing I wish I knew ahead of time was the inner dimension between the side supports. I bought some Trofast boxes to use on the shelves and they were 1/2" too wide.5
Pantry shelvingGAILIVAR was the perfect solution for my pantry. It allowed me to double the number of shelves, maximizing the space.5
IvarWandaLove the Ivar shelving system. Will be buying more pieces. Adding to retail space!5
Shelf unit for kitchenNataliaI bought this additional side unit to extend my shelves in the kitchen. The one that is already there got darker over time. I like that there is an option to control the height of each shelf and the amount of shelves in general. You can easily adjust according to your needs.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 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.
